Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks: One and Only You and Block Party - Thanks

Hello everyone and welcome to day three of the Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks!! What is your favorite so far?? I just love all the sweet princess goodies and the fun birthday products....sooo much cuteness!! Just remember that tomorrow, Thursday,  September 3rd at 7:00AM PST all the new toys can be yours!!!! Now, on with the show, 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 Block Party - Thanks Die...it was used on a Toffee card base and a piece of green patterned paper from Carta Bella's Fall Blessings 6x6 paper pad. The green diecut was adhered on top of the card base cutout, backed with a piece of Buttercream Frosting,  and two strips of plaid patterned paper were adhered on the top and the bottom of the top diecut. 


Watercoloring was done on watercolor paper and allowed to dry. Then the Bloomers 3 dies and the Mini Bloomers dies were used to cut the flowers and the Bloomers Greenery dies were used to cut the leaves from patterned paper.  The leaves were adhered to the card base and the flowers were popped up with foam dots. The wood dots were added to the flower centers as the finishing touch. 

To celebrate our 7th year, Taylored Expressions has designed a special party favor, One & Only You. This petite stamp & die combo set includes a "you" coordinating die and will be FREE with orders over $50 beginning on September 3rd – September 13th. One free set per customer, while supplies last.




My next card was so fun to make....I just love the divided sentiment design created with the One and Only You Stamp and Die Combo. It was stamped on a word bubble cut with one of the previously released Pockets and Pages Essentials - 3x4 dies.   It's become a tradition for Taylor to offer a free stamp set with a purchase of $50.00 or more during the Taylored Expressions Birthday celebration...how cool is that!!!! 


I also used the super cute Little Bits - Raccoon and the Little Bits - Moose die sets. They were popped up on the Toffee background that was embossed with the TE Prairie Embossing Folder and colored with a white craft ink pad. To finish it off,  tiny leaves were cut out of Fall Blessings papers with the Little Bits - Leaves dies and adhered with glue dots. 


I loved the One and Only Stamp and Die Combo so much that I just had to make another card....the divided sentiment was added to a word bubble created with the previously released Pockets and Pages Bubble Out.  The Build a Scene - Trees were cut out of Chocolate Truffle (for the trunks) and Carta Bella's Fall Blessings 6x6 paper pad. 


The trees were popped up on foam dots and the Little Bits - Leaves dies were used to cut out all the tiny leaves....they were adhered with glue dots and the twine finished it off. 


Thanks for visiting! If you'd like to see more projects and new product information, please head over to the TE Blog for a complete list of our participating designers! Remember....the September Release is tomorrow, Thursday, September 3rd at 7:00 AM PST (9:00 CST)

Such a fabulous trio of cards in wonderful fall colors!! LOVE your use of Bloomers around the "thanks". And that little moose and raccoon are just perfect on the "prairie"! I'm definitely copying your trees and blowing leaves - a great layout!
