Release Day @ Taylored Expressions!

Hi everyone!  Happy Thursday and Happy Release Day @ Taylored Expressions!

TE Release Day!
  • All of the new products  are now available for purchase!      Check out the Fresh Out of the Oven Department to see everything in one place!
  • More projects from the Baker's Dozen to inspire you.  Just follow the link list below.
  • Be sure to check the TE Current Specials page to find out how you can get FREE 4th of July Stamps with your purchase.
I have two projects to share with you today!  First up I have a card that I created using the previously released Celebrate Freedom a la carte!  This a la carte, the 4th of July a la carte or God Bless America a la carte can be yours free with any $50 purchase (before shipping or tax).  Which one will you choose?

For my card today I used cardstock from the new 4th of July Project Pantry Kit being released today.  I embossed the fireworks from the Celebrate Freedom a la carte in silver embossing powder onto the navy cardstock panel.  I cut a piece of the red cardstock with the From The Heart Frame Taylored Die and used it as a base for my "USA" cut from Choice Buttercream Cardstock using the fabulous new Tall & Skinny Alpha Taylored Dies (love).

I stamped "Celebrate Freedom" onto a piece of Kraft Cardstock and then snipped it into a flag.  I attached it to the card and anchored it the card with a star cut with the Seeing Stars Taylored Die and a heart cut with the Mini Tags Taylored Dies, tied with some twine.  I added lots of stitching with my Janome Sew Mini.

Here is a closeup of the USA panel.

Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on my card:

Next up I have a set of cards that I created to add to my Birthday Card stash (which is constantly in need of replenishing!). I wanted them to be easy to mass produce, and these fabulous new Petal Pop Ups Taylored Dies are just the ticket!

I started with Choice Snow White Cardstock and stamped the sentiment, "Happy Birthday To You" from the new Bikes & Trikes set in Memento Tuxedo Black and then impressed the front of each card using the Houndstooth/Damask Taylored Impression Plate.  I rounded the bottom corners with The Corner Chomper.

I cut the flowers using the new Petal Pop Ups 1 (aren't these SO cool?) in three different colors and then arranged them onto the card bases.  I then added kraft buttons in the center of each one and finished the top of each with some Baker's Twine.

Here is a closeup of the texture, flowers and sentiment.  Super fun no?  There are SO many possibilities...use softer colors for a wedding or baby card, darker colors for a masculine look...I can't wait to get started on more of these!

Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on these:
