It’s Release Day at Taylored Expressions!  Hopefully you’ve been following along with all the amazing project peeks this week and are ready to shop!  There’s lots more to see today too with all the players linked over at the TE Blog.  I have a  fun card to share today.  These products came at a perfect time for me, as my BFF (who lives in another state) just moved into a brand-spanking-new house and I was dying to send her a congrats gift and card!  She’s someone who notices details and truly appreciates a beautifully wrapped package, so I started by trying to coordinate colors with a new roll of wrapping paper.

I am obsessed with this wrapping paper!  And look at how perfectly these TE cardstock colors work with it!  Based on this, here’s the card I created.

I stamped the neighborhood border stamp from There’s No Place Like Home, omitting a small portion of it and then sponged some green ink underneath that.  I die cut the Little Bits Cottage as the highlighted new home.  The texture created by the new Subway Tile Embossing folder was just the perfect touch in the background.

Simple stamping of the very large sentiment combo!  I was super happy with how this turned out and very excited to get it out in the mail!

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy hopping and happy shopping!

It’s Day 3 of the Taylored Expressions March Sneak Peeks.  Everything will be available in the TE Webstore tomorrow morning.  I’m jumping in with a couple of very fun 3-D items.

First up is a super sweet little house created with the Taylored Die Home Sweet Home.

ACK!  How cute is that?  I literally just grabbed the first patterned papers I could get my hands on, so I could play with this adorable die.  I kept it super-duper simple for my first try, but there’s also an accessories set, so you can go crazy with customizing!  The house has no bottom, so it would be perfect to set over a battery-operated tea light!

Next up is my favorite new product from this release the Taylored Die – Matchbox and the coordinating stamp set Matchy Matchy!

When this concept was in development, I just kept picturing this cute little matchbox as a tag/card on a gift bag.  I couldn’t wait to make that vision come to life!

Look!  The bird’s wings were designed to fold up inside the tray of the matchbox! And there are multiple sentiments that will fit across the wings too!  This little stamp set packs a punch with images and sentiments for birthdays, love, and encouragement, plus I managed to use it for a Thank You Gift!  I wrote my personal message on the back of the matchbox.  The patterned papers used on the bag and the matchbox are from the TE 6×6 Paper Pack – Playful Patterns Harvest.  Don’t get too caught up in thinking certain paper packs are only for specific seasons.

See those tiny clouds?  That’s another stamp set – Matchy Backgrounds – sized just perfectly for these matchboxes and other tiny scenes!  The possibilities for these little matchboxes are almost endless and I think I can safely say that we will definitely have more coordinating stamp sets to come!
