It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions {and Happy Birthday Cuppie!!}

Hi everyone!! Happy Saturday, Happy Release Day at Taylored Expressions and Happy Birthday to sweet Cuppie!!!

Today is release day at Taylored Expressions, and I and the rest of the Baker's Dozen get to share another AMAZING new set with you...Punchy Potions!!

As you can see...I had TONS of fun with this new set (and shhh...this card right here may well be my fav TE card that I have ever made!!) and just WAIT until you see the most amazing part of this set...are you ready? The images in this set were designed to work with the Large Oval Nestabilities by Spellbinders!!! WOO HOO!!!

For my card, I stamped this AWESOME Good Witch/Bad Witch image in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored the image with Copic Markers. I then framed it in my Nestabilities and used it as the focal point of my card!!

ALL the cardstock, patterned paper, ribbon AND the super fab epoxy brad, are from the Halloween Key Ingredients, which is also being released today!!! I ADORE the Basic Grey Eerie paper included in this KI! ADORE it!! I did add four brads from my stash in each of the corners, and in order to make them fabu, I gave them each a coat of Grape Soda Smooch! COOL right?

Now...check out the MAGIC of the Punchy Potions set...potion bottles that coordinate! Yep...potion bottles! Totally fabulous right???

For my potion bottles, I stamped images from Punchy Potions again onto Choice Snow White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with Copic Markers. I then cut them out with Oval and Scallop Oval Nestabilities. I also cut out another two ovals out of Sticker Paper (which is included in the Punchy Potions Bundle along with the Potion Bottles, the Punchy Potions Stamp Set AND Classic Large Oval Nestabilties...ALL for just $ about a DEAL!!), and then glued my finished images to the sticker paper.

Once that was done, all I did was peel and stick my labels on!! I also created cork toppers with the set to match the labels! Fun fun fun! I filled my potion bottles with Candy Corn and Bat I just have to keep them away from Meredith!

In this close up picture, you can see how I went over the spider web with a Spica Clear Glitter looks SO cool in real life!!!

and of course, Taylor VanBruggen!!!
Now...not only is it release day...and Cuppies Birthday...and the Birthday Bash on the SASI's also the day that all of you that are signed up for the Taylored Expressions newsletter get to see a project that I made...a Perfect Package Punchy Potions (say that 3 times fast!!) Card Set!!! I am SO excited to share it with you here on my blog today!!

I started with a Perfect Package (LOVE these...this is my 4th card set that I have made with a Perfect Package...they ROCK!!) and the Halloween Key Ingredients that are being released today! Of course, I had to use Punchy Potions...this set is SOOOO super versatile! I wanted to show you how EASY it is to use all of these products and create a super fun set of Halloween cards!!

I started by stamping this AWESOME image (my personal favorite from Punchy Potions) in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock.
Next, I lined up my Classic Oval Nestabilities (see how EASY this is!!) and ran it through my Cuttlebug!! You can see how PERFECT it fits!!

Here is a picture of the front of my Perfect Package, and another of the entire set together! I actually created TWO of each of the cards...told you I LOVE this Halloween KI and the Punchy Potions Set!!!

All of the images on the cards were colored with Copic Markers, they all use the cardstock, patterned paper and ribbon from the Halloween Key Ingredients, and they all have Taylor's Tiny Twinkles on them!!!

How did you like all the peeks for the past few days? Loved them? I sure hope so! Head on over to Taylored Expressions and you can now purchase all of the sets, bundles and Key Ingredients you have seen us all use for the past few days!!
