Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks: And Many More and Little Bits Confetti and Candle

Hello everyone and welcome to day one of the Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks!!!! This is a real special release because we are celebrating.....

It’s TE’s Sixth Birthday!

· To celebrate, along with new stamps and dies, we are releasing our very own line of patterned paper and coordinating cardstock, as well as our own Embossing Folders.
· Visit the TE Blog for a fun sketch challenge with a $250 prize gift certificate.

My first card features the adorable new stamp set called And Many More. The sweet little bird was stamped  on the new TE  Sugar Cube card stock and paper pieced with papers from the new TE Matched Double the Fun Paper Pack.  Double the Fun Matching Sequins were used along with the  previously released Grass Border die which was used on the new TE Granny Smith cardstock to cut out the grass. The image was matted with TE's Cherry Pop cardstock. 

The background papers are from the Matched Double the Fun paper pack and the new TE Cookie Monster cardstock was embossed with the new TE Zig Zag Embossing Folder. I loooove the new TE embossing folders because they are large and a 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 piece of cardstock fits cool is that!!!!
A little sewing, button, twine, and a rounded corner finish it off. 

For the inside....the cute Little Bits - Balloons dies were used to cut the balloons out of the Matched Double the Fun papers and the sentiments are from the the same set. More of the Double the Fun patterned paper was used and the corner was rounded on the inside layers, too. 

My second card features the adorable Little Bits - Confetti and Candle dies along with the Incentive set.... Think Happy Thoughts stamp and die set

To celebrate our 6th year, we've designed a special party favor, Think Happy Thoughts. This petite stamp set includes a very "happy" coordinating die and will be FREE with orders over $50 beginning on September 11th - September 21st. One free set per customer, while supplies last.

The candles were cut from several of the new Taylored Expressions card stock: Peapod, Jelly Donut, Strawberry Milkshake, and Lemon Meringue for the flames.  The Happy die from the Think Happy Thoughts set was was used to cut the sentiment from one of the papers of the Matched Double the Fun 6x6 paper pack and the background layers were created with Choice Snow White, Jelly Donut, Peapod, and the polka dot paper from the Matched Double the Fun paper pack. 

The inside features the sentiment from the Incentive Set called Think Happy Thoughts and the stars and confetti were cut out of several new TE cardstock (Peapod, Jelly Donut, and Lollipop) with the Little Bits - Confetti and Candle dies..... such fun dies and them all!!!!
