Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks: Day Two - Fine Feathers and Follow Your Arrow

Hello everyone and welcome to day two of the Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks!!! Didn't you just love all the fun Halloween projects yesterday!! Since we are having 100 degree weather, now, I can't wait for Halloween to arrive!!! Remember, the August Release is Thursday, August 6th, at 7:00 PST (9:00 CST).  

Today I have some all occasion stamps and dies to show you...they will be perfect for any type of card or project but first....


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. 


My first card features the Fine Feathers dies...they were used to cut feathers from Sugar Cube, Lavender Glaze, and Salt Water Taffy cardstock.  The feathers were adhered to the background that was created with the Southwest Cutting Plate. 


A template was cut with the cutting plate and taped to the Sugar Cube cardstock. Versamark  was used to ink up the area that wasn't covered with the template...the template was removed and then the background was embossed with clear embossing powder. Pool party and LuLu Lavender ink pads were used to wipe the ink on in a random pattern. The ink was wiped off the embossed areas and set aside to dry. When the background was dry, the sentiment from the Simply Stamped - Daisies stamp set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. The cording finishes it off. 


I loved the first card so much that I decided to make another one...the background was created the same as the first card with the Southwest Cutting Plate only with some additional ink colors.  The previously released Dream Catcher die was used on Sprinkles cardstock and the Fine Feathers were cut out of Plum Punch, Peapod, and Sprinkles cardstocks. 


The sentiment is from the Free Spirit stamp set and the sequins are from the Build a Scene - Halloween Sequins and Build a Scene Sequins sets. 


My next two cards feature the Follow Your Arrow dies....several different colors of Taylored Expressions cardstock were used along with the sentiment from the Free Spirit stamp set.


The background was embossed with the new Weathered Embossing Folder for a little texture and the enamel dots finish it off. 


The Follow Your Arrows arrows were cutout of several different paperned papers and then were all arranged around the sentiment from the Free Spirit stamp set.


A little sewing was done around the edge for the finishing touch.
