Taylored Expressions March Sneak Peeks: Frame in Frame Cutting Plate and Garden Arbor and Gate

 
Hello! It's Day 2 of Sneak Peeks from Taylored Expressions! All of the new products will be available on Thursday, March 5th at 7AM PST!
 
For my first project today I used a fun new cutting plate called Frame in Frame Cutting Plate. This die comes with 4 frames that can be layered together, but I chose to use 2 of them on my card today.  I framed an image from the new set Carried Away with Dies (LOVE!!!) and then used the dies included in the set to cut out my balloons. I then used the largest frame from the Frame in Frame Cutting Plate for the outer frame. The dp is Echo Park We Are Family.
 
 
For my next card I used several new die sets: Garden Arbor and Gate, Arbor Accessories, Arbor Fence, and Wispy Grass Border! I created a sweet scene by pairing all these dies together and layering them over some Salt Water Taffy cs that I embossed with the Cloudy Days Embossing Folder. Finally, I added a sentiment from the new set In and Out Wedding. So pretty and so easy!

Taylored Expressions March Sneak Peeks: Bold Lace Cutting Plate, In & Out Wedding, and Fancy Banner 1!


Hello! It's Release Week at Taylored Expressions which means it's time for sneak peeks! All of the new products will be available on Thursday, March 5th at 7 AM PST!


For my first card, I used a fabulous new wedding sentiment set called In & Out Wedding! I cut my focal panel out of some gorgeous new Metallic Neutrals cs using a Label Stacklets 1 Die. I stamped the sentiments onto the panel using a Stamp-a-ma-jig to line them up.  The bg was cut using the new Bold Lace Cutting Plate out of more Metallic cs and I embossed the gold metallic cs with the Dotted Lattice Embossing Folder. I added some ribbon and it was complete. So simple but so pretty!


For my next project I made a place card using the new Fancy Banner 1 Stamp Set with Coordinating Die and the new Little Bits Champagne Flutes. I cut my place card with the TE Take Your place Die out of more gorgeous Metallic cs and once again used the Label Stacklets 1 Dies to cut my name panel. You could write the names of your guests (if you have pretty handwriting unlike me!) or print them up and cut them out using this die. I used some foam tape to pop up my banner and my flutes for a little dimension and it was complete! Quick and easy!

SugarPea Designs ProjectPea Blog Hop!

 
Hello! Well, today is my last day as a ProjectPea. I've had so much fun over the last several months playing with these adorable stamps and dies, and I just want to say Thank You to Wendy for having me:)
 
 
For my project today, I made a simple tag using My Hero and the Gift Tag SugarCuts Die. I stamped the image onto some Kraft cs with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the lightening bolt with Copics. I cut the sentiment out with the banner from the Gift Tag die set and added the stars also from this set. Finally, I added the ribbon and twine and it was complete!
