Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks: Simply Stamped - Sunflowers and Sack It - Castle

Hello everyone and welcome to day two of the Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks!!! Didn't you just love all the fun birthday inspiration you saw yesterday!!! It's hard to believe that Taylored Expressions is 7 years old.....Whoohoo!!! Wait till you see what we have for you today 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 Simply Stamped - Sunflowers stamp set....the background was watercolored and set aside to dry. When dry, doodling was done around the edge and the sentiment from the same set was stamped. The sunflowers were stamped onto Sugar Cube cardstock using three different ink colors and cut out with the Simply Stamped-Sunflowers Dies. 


The leaves were cut out of Doodlebug's Hello Sunshine paper and adhered under the flowers...the Rainbow Brights Sequins were the finishing touch. 


Are you ready for a Princess Party?? We are all set with the invitation, gift bag, and a  card perfect for that special little princess!!


The castle gift bag was created with the Sack It To You die for the base and the Sack It - Castle die set. Lollipop, Jelly Donut, Lavender Glaze, Sugar Cube cardstocks and the pink polka dot patterned paper from the Hello Happiness 6x6 paper pack were used along with Hello Happiness Sequins to finish it off. 


The card was created with the Little Bits - Castle die set and the sentiment from the Pixie Dust Stamp and Die Combo. The same papers as the Sack It - Castle were used along with the previously released Postage Stamp Stacklets for the castle background frame.


The Hello Happiness Sequins and twine finish it off. 


To complete the set, you need an invitation...it was created with the Sack It - Castle dies, the same papers as the castle gift bag and the card,  and the Postage Stamp Stacklets for the shaker frame.  The previously released RSVP stamp was used for the shaker background and the previously released Eventful stamp was used to specify the party type..... Hello Happiness Sequins were used on the inside of the shaker.
