Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks: Simply Stamped Daisies and Free Spirit


Hello! It's Day 2 of Sneak Peeks from Taylored Expressions! All of the new products will be available on Thursday, August 6th at 7AM PST!

For my first project today, I used the beautiful new stamp set-Simply Stamped Daisies! I adore this stamp set and it makes these gorgeous daisies so easy to create!

I stamped each daisy with 3 different shades of ink in the same color family. For instance, a light blue, medium blue, and darker blue. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line them up which worked perfectly. I cut each daisy and the stems out with the coordinating Simply Stamped Daisies Dies. I layered them over an oval that I embossed with the new Weathered Embossing Folder and stamped the sentiment onto a Pockets and Pages Stitched Essentials Die


For my next card, I used several new products. I started by using the new Southwest Cutting Plate for the base. I cut it out of some Cookie Monster cs and layered it over some Toffee cs. I then embossed my next layer with the new Ikat Embossing Folder. I added the strip of Sugar Cube cs and stamped a sentiment from the new Free Spirit stamp set-I just love that font!!! Finally I added the trio of featheres which I cut with the new Fine Feathers Dies. I think all of these elements are so fun!

Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks: You've Got Mail Halloween and Witch's Brew!


Hello! It's been a long time! I took a nice little crafting break for the summer-busy working and hanging out with my kiddos, but it sure felt good to get back into my craft room! Today is day 1 of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions, and all of the new products will be available on Thursday, August 6th at 7AM PST!

For my first project today, I used the adorable new stamp-You've Got Mail-Halloween! This image is so cute! I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I layered it over some of the new Taylored Expressions Build a Scene-Halloween dp and added the fence using the new Wrought Iron Gate and Fence Dies. I used the Wispy Grass Border Die for the grass and then added the sweet pumpkin from the previously released Little Bits Halloween Scene Dies. The bats are from the Gothic Window Accessories Die Set.


For my next project I used some really fun new sets-the Witch's Brew stamp set along with the new Drink if You Dare die set! I thought it would be fun to make little drink labels/signs that you could place in front of a punch bowl at a Halloween party:) I started with the Take Your Place Die for my base, and cut them out of Pumpkin and Oreo cs. I then embossed the base with the Tangled Webs Embossing Folder.

The fun bottles and spiders were cut using the fab new Drink if You Dare die set and the then stamped using sentiments and images from the new Witch's Brew stamp set. I just love how these came out!
