Hi everyone!! Happy Wednesday!!
Welcome to the first day of sneak peeks for the UNBELIEVABLE new release from Taylored Expressions! I am SO excited so let's get right to it!!
Today, I am sharing peeks of a FABULOUS new set with you called Take Note! This set is going to be a go-to set in my stamp collection for sure!!
Not only am I previewing this new set, I also get to show you an AMAZING new product that will be available on Friday, August 6...get ready...are you ready? Taylored Dies!!! WOOOOOOOOT!!! There are 9 different dies being released, and both of my projects today feature the Take Note Frame 3!
For my first project, I altered a notebook that I have had for some time. I wanted a shabby chic look, so I started by stamping the Take Note frame, from Take Note, in Colorbox Warm Red onto Choice Buttcream Cardstock and cut it out using the FABULOUS Take Note Frame 3 Taylored Die. I then stamped the frame again, this time in Memento Bamboo Leaves, and then cut out the center rectangle portion. I stamped "To Do Book" using Take Note in the center of the rectangle. I stamped the butterfly from Garden Party Critters in Memento Angel Pink behind the title.
I thought the flower from CreativiTEA would be perfect for my shabby book, so I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored it with Copic Markers, cut it out and popped it up on Foam Tape on top of the Take Note Frame 3 Taylored Die. The patterned paper is from Thrift Shop by October Afternoon and all the panels were sponged with Memento Desert Sand and then I sewed the layers on my sewing machine. I added some Kaisercraft Pearls and the center of the flowers got a touch of Illuminate Smooch.
As you can see from the second photo, I used the same stamp from Take Note, along with the Take Note Frame 3 Taylored Die and created tabs for the inside of my book. This time, I simply turned the die horizontally, stamped my titles, also from Take Note, and adhered them to my book pages. I can't WAIT to start creating more journals for holiday gifts!
For my second project, I wanted to create a card using a previously released set from Taylored Expressions so you can see just how versatile the Taylored Dies are!
The layout is Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge, MTSC85, and I started by stamping this darling bear from Beary Special from Taylored Expressions twice onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock. I stamped the wings as well, also from Beary Special, and colored all the images with Copic Markers. I cut out the second image of the bear and popped him up on Foam Tape. Using the Take Note Frame 3 Taylored Die, I cut out the image and I LOVE how perfectly he is framed!
I used more Smooch Illuminate on his wings...I LOVE how shimmery they are in real life! The patterned paper is from Fly A Kite by October Afternoon and I sewed each layer on my sewing machine. The sentiment, "My Little Angel" is also from Beary Special, and I cut it out and embossed it using the medium die in Tags Trio by Spellbinders. I attached it to the card with a Jenni Bowlin Vintage Cream Button (LOVE these!) and some chocolate twine.
Check out the FABULOUSNESS that the rest of the Baker's Dozen has created with Take Note and all the different Taylored Dies being released on Friday!
and of course, Taylor Vanbruggen
