Taylored Expressions Special Release!

Hi everyone!!  Happy Tuesday!

Taylored Expressions is bursting at the seams with so much sweet new rubber that we couldn't fit it all in the regular monthly release! We are excited to bring you a one-time mid-month release of 3 new stamp sets - Labels of Love, You're My Type - Upper and You're My Type - Lower. As if that weren't exciting enough, these new sets are designed to coordinate with Spellbinders dies! The best part of this fabulous mid month realeas...everything we are showing you is available TODAY!!! WOOT!

We also want to take this opportunity to express a huge thank you to Spellbinders who generously provided our team members with Grand Calibur die cutting machines.   SO totally and amazingly generous!  I ♥ my Grand Calibur!  I don't have any of the new Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities (yet), but I LOVE to use my Grand Calibur to cut multiple die cuts at the same time.  It makes life SO easy!  I love easy :)  The Grand Calibur cuts and embosses so smoothly...and I love how the pieces are labeled.  No more fumbling around trying to figure out which one is the cutting mat and which is the embossing mat!
I have two projects to share with you today using all the new goodies!  Let's get started shall we?

The first set I have the pleasure of sharing with you today is Labels Of Love.   This is a darling set of 31 (yes...31!) stamps designed by Taylor for the *te* line @ Taylored Expressions!  Like all Taylored Expressions stamps, these are cut from deeply etched red rubber in a cute shade of pink (and of course, they are mounted on EZ mount already)!  This set comes on a 5.75 X 8.5 full color sturdy storage panel that conveniently fits in the amazing Binder Boxes!  LOVE these.  I store ALL of my Taylored Expressions sets in these boxes...I love to look at them all lined up.

This new set is fabulous, as the frames and sentiments can all be mixed and matched, as well as used alone or together.  LOVE how versatile it is!  This set coordinates with the new Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio Three Dies.  I LOVE these dies!  They give such an elegant way to add ribbon to your card or scrapbook page! 

I have a few pictures to show you how easy it is to use these fabulous new dies with the Labels Of Love set!  I've first stamped the label that I wanted to use on my card today (stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock).  I then lined up my die right over the stamped image and added a small piece of tape to keep it in place. 

I ran it through my Grand Calibur and viola, a perfect ribbon tag!


I've paired this sweet new set with one of my favorite previously released sets, Friendship Blooms!  The patterned paper is all from Stella & Rose Gertie, and I used it for the main panels as well as the flowers on my focal panel. 

You can see on the ribbon tag how the ribbon just slides right through the slits on the sides of the panel.  Easy peasy!  After stamping it and cutting/embossing it as mentioned above, I colored it with Copic Markers and sponged it a bit for more pop.  I just LOVE the look of this and how it adds that extra special accent on a card!

You can find these fabulous new products right here:

or, you can purchase them as a bundle:

Next on the agenda are two separate Mini Stamp Sets, You're My Type Upper and You're My Type Lower!  Again, these are cut from the same deeply etched rubber, mounted on EZ mount and are cut and ready for stamping!

We are featuring these sets today along with the fabulous new Spellbinders Nested Pennants and Spellbinders Lacey Pennants, but these sets are perfect for so many other uses!  I am thinking of personalized stationary, little personalized tags...it's such a great font and the perfect size!  It is also wonderful with a 1/2 inch Circle Punch!

Today, I've used the You're My Type Lower and the Spellbinders Nested Pennant Dies to create my card.  I've paired these new products with another one of my favorite previously released sets, Wings of Joy, to create a holiday card!

Banners and pennants are all the rage these days, and the Spellbinders Nested Pennant Dies make it super easy to create a sweet little banner like I've done here!  I simply cut them and embossed them in my Grand Calibur and then stamped the letters from You're My Type Lower right onto them.  I sponged them for more of a vintage feel, which was the look I was trying to achieve on my card.  A little Baker's Twine adds a touch of whimsy! 

You can find these fabulous new products right here:
