Taylored Expressions March Release: Garden Arbor and Gate and Block Party - Love

Hello everyone and welcome to the Taylored Expressions March Release Day !!!!! 
Today is the day all the new goodies are available for purchase in the New Products Section of the Taylored Expressions Store...that means they can come live in your craft room...Woot!!!! 

My first card features several new stamp and die sets along with a few previously released dies, too!!! The new Garden Arbor with Gate die set was used along with the new Arbor Accessories (vine and flowers) and the new Arbor Fence. The vine was cut out of Sweet Basil cardstock and the flowers were cut from a scrap piece of patterned paper.

The new Wispy Grass Border was used to cut the grass from Sweet Basil cardstock and the sentiment is from the Mixed Blooms stamp set. The previously released Cloud Duo dies were used for the clouds and the previously released Build a Scene - Sunshine die. 

My second card features the new Carried Away Stamp and Die Combo set and the new Block Party - Love die. I decided to use the love die vertically (it can be used horizontally and at an angle...what ever fits your design) and it was backed with Salt Water Taffy cardstock. 

The image was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa onto the Toffee card base.  The little hearts were cut from patterned paper and the sentiment from the same set was stamped on a patterned paper banner that was hand cut. 

Thanks for visiting and joining us this week for the Taylored Expressions March Release!!!  If you'd like to see more projects and new product information, please head over to the TE Blog for a complete blog roll of our participating designers!
