Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks: Fall is in the Air!!

Hello everyone and welcome to day 2 of the Taylored Expressions September Release. Wasn't yesterday fun with all the birthday projects?? Today we are going to share a little fall inspiration but first....

Taylored Expressions is celebrating it's 8th birthday with some fun party favors! These include everything from the exclusive WISH BIG Stamp & Die Combo set to patterned paper packs, ink, and more! Visit the  TE Blog  for all the special offers and for your chance to win a fun prize!!

My first card features the Thanks Cutting was cut out of TE Premium Watercolor Paper and colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush watercolor markers. 

When dry, it was adhered to the Buttercream Frosting background and then adhered to the Plum Punch cardbase. Pearls were added as the finishing touch. 

Supply List:
Taylored Expressions Dies: Thanks Cutting Plate
Taylored Expressions Paper: Plum Punch, Buttercream Frosting, TE Premium Watercolor Paper
Ink: Zig Clear Color Real Brush Watercolor Pens
Accessories: Pearls (KaiserCraft)

My second card features the adorable Little Bits - Fall Harvest dies and the sweet little On the Road - Wagon dies. This was such a fun little fall scene to create...the little red wagon looks just like the one I used to have when my Grands were small!! 

The wagon and the harvest pieces were all cutout of lots of different TE cardstock, glued together, and popped up on the Salt Water Taffy background that was cut out with the previously released Stitched Square Stacklets. The previously released Grass Border was used to cut out the grass from Playful Patterns - Harvest 6x6 paper pack paper and to finish it off, the sentiment from the Pumpkin Bouquet stamp set (sneak peeks tomorrow) was stamped with Chocolate Truffle ink on the cloud cut with the previously released Build a Scene - Rolling Clouds die.

I just realized that the stamp set Fall Florals has some of the same flowers, great to order together. The watercoloring is so soft and pretty.

Love how you used the Thanks cutting plate on the watercolor paper. Fabulous colors on that one. That little wagon is becoming a must have, and I like the different colors of card stock you used pumpkins. Wonderful cards!

Your floral card turned out so beautiful. Love that you mounted it on the cream paper so that the great colors could stand out. TFS
