Taylored Expressions February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

Hello everyone and welcome to the Taylored Expressions February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!!! The Baker's Dozen DT is teaming up with the Key Ingredients DT to showcase the February SOTM called Birthday Bash, the coordinating dies called Party Time, and the February Key Ingredients Kit which contains patterned papers from the We Are Memory Keepers Hip Hip Hooray collection, card stock, and an assortment of ribbons. 

The Stamp of the Month and the Key Ingredients Kit are monthly subscriptions with three options. You can read all about it here in the Kit Department of the Taylored Expressions Store. 

Here is the Delux Kit which includes both the February SOTM and the KI kit

and here is the coordinating die set called Party Time (sold seperately)

Here is my first card featuring the cute polka dot balloon stamp...

The balloons were stamped, cutout with the Party Time balloon die, and popped up with foam dots onto the background tilted papers from the February Key Ingredients kiit. The balloon strings were also cutout with dies from the Party Time die set and a little sewing was done on the background layers.

The sentiment from the Birthday Bash set was stamped on the Label It banner die and the button and hemp twine finish it off. 

Since I already had all the beautiful papers, stamps and dies out on my work table, I decided to make another card...I am always is need of birthday cards!!! This card also features the balloon die but this time I cut out patterned paper balloons and stamped the strings. 

The balloons were popped up with foam dots and the sequins are the only embellies. Both birthday cards will work for either make or female....woot!!!!!

How about a little inspiration from the KI and Baker's Dozen DT's...I can't wait to see what they created with these super fun stamps and dies!!!!

Thanks for stopping by today...I hope you like what we have created for you today!!!!
