Release Day @ Taylored Expressions!

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

ALL of the new goodies are available right now in the Fresh Out Of The Oven Department!  There are also lots of deals to be had in the Current Specials Department!!!

I have a two projects to share with you today so let's get started!  First up I have another card to share with you using the darling new Moka Gwen.  I ADORE her!  I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored her with Copic Markers.  All of the colors were pulled from the patterned paper I used, 9 to 5 from October Afternoon. 

Here is a closeup of her.  Isn't she a cutie?  I cut her out and layered the panel with another piece of Choice Buttercream.  I love the look of layering this way, as you can probably tell (grin).

On the smaller panel of patterned paper I added a border with the Notepaper Border Taylored Die and I used the new Hexagon Stacklets Taylored Dies to create the sentiment panel as well as the patterned paper Hexagon that I put a button on.  I stamped the paper airplane from Doodle Notes, colored it and then cut it out and popped it up with Foam Tape.  On the background Kraft panel I stamped the new Chevron Big Background in Paper White Fresh the extra detail it adds.  I finished off my card with some Kraft ribbon tied into a bow courtesy of my Bow Easy.

Here are the Copic Markers I've used on my card:

Next up I used the SUPER fun new Doodle Notes set to create a quartet of mini note cards.  They are all 3X3 finished, but I think they pack quite a punch for being small!  I can't wait for school to start so I can tuck these into Meredith's backpack!

On each card I started with a piece of Choice Snow White Cardstock that I stamped with the new Notepaper a la carte and I stamped them all with Gypsy Blue Fresh Ink.  I then used the Notepaper Border Taylored Die on the left edge of each one and viola, a mini piece of notebook paper!  SO fun!!

Here are two of my mini cards.  All of the images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and I colored them all with Copic Markers.

Here are the other two mini cards.  These are my favorites!  LOVE the rainbow and the cloud with the sun peeking over it.  SO fun!  I used the new Chevron Borders Taylored Die to create the chevrons on all four mini cards.  The focal panels are popped up, on an angle, with Foam Tape.

Here are the Copic Markers I've used on my mini cards:

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