Hello everyone and welcome to day one of the Taylored Expressions May Sneak Peeks!!! You are going to love all the fabulous new goodies....Taylor will release several new stamp sets and dies to include some that are just perfect for our patriotic holidays!!!
Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the TE Blog each Sneak Peek Day this week for details on how you can enter to win.
For my first project, I used the new American Flag Cutting Plate, Star Stacklets, and one of the new patriotic stamps called Patriotic Prose - Brave. Two different flags were cut out with real red and Americana patterned paper. The blue corner piece was adhered over the red diecut and it was backed with a piece of Choice Snow White card stock. All three pieces were distressed and inked with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. It was then adhered to the burlap background and framed (frame from Taylored Expressions).
The sentiment stamp called Patriotic Prose - Brave, which comes in one piece, was cut up into individual words and stamped on the frame with Timber Brown Stazon ink. (Don't use regular die ink because it will bleed...I speak from experience...LOL!!)
Star Stacklets were used to cut out all the stars from burlap, Americana 6x6 paper pad, and Kraft in Color 6x6 paper pad....they were all stacked and adhered with foam tape and glue dots. The corrugated cardboard button, buttons, and twine finish it off.
My second project features the new Light Up the Night stamp set and the new
City Skyline die. The City Skyline die was used to cutout the Choice Kraft and night of navy diecuts..the kraft diecut was layered over the navy one a little off center to create a shadow effect. A few of the dark windows were left in the diecut to create a little dimension.
The fireworks stamp from the Light Up the Night set was colored with markers and then stamped on the Choice Snow White card base and the sentiment from the same set was combined from two different sentiments. The red star was cut using a Star Stacklet and the button and hemp cording finish it off.
