Taylored Expressions - Happily Ever After! 8-)

Hi all! And a Very Happy Saturday to you! 8-) Hope you all are having a Super weekend so far! 8-) Well, today I'm back with a quick post, to share my latest Taylored Expressions creation inspired by TE's Awesome Little Bits Champagne flute Dies, TE's Little Bits Champagne Bottle Dies TE's new Fame in Frame Cutting Plate, TE's previously released Bottle Up Dies & TE's New Wedding Sequins as well, to create these Sweet Wedding Shaker Bottle Tags...8-)
For my Fun Wedding bottle tag bases  I started off with TE's Toffee Premium CS, and TE's Bottle Up Dies. I wanted to go for a rustic/ elegant look for them so I dug out my snowcap paint dauber and added some fun distressing. Then to give them a little touch of shabby elegance I took my versa mark ink pad to inked the edges and embossed with Gold EP. 
Next I created my Shaker elements for each of my Wedding Bottle Tags with the help of TE's New Fame in Frame Cutting Plate, TE's Little Bits Champagne Bottle Dies, TE's Little Bits Champagne Flute Dies, TE's Metallic Neutrals CS, TE's new Wedding Sequins and TE's Happily Ever After Stamp set as well...
I just love how TE's new Frame in Frame cutting plate made it so easy to put together my shaker focal pieces as well!! I just adhered some acetate and a bit of foam tape around the edges of my frame and popped it onto my Shaker's BG pieces after I had stamped & Embossed it with a TE's Happily Ever After Sentiment & sprinkled a some of TE's Wedding Sequins to sandwich in between. And to finish them all up I just adhered my Shaker Focal pieces to the my Wedding Bottle Tag Bases. And Voila! There you have it!... 8-)

Here are the items I used for my Projects today... 8-)


Hope you all have a Fantastic weekend & Thanks so much for visiting! 8-)

Taylored Expressions March Release Day! - Carried Away 8-)

Hi All! And a Very Happy Thursday to you! 8-) Haven't you just Loved ALL the AWESOME Sneak Peeks the last few days!! I know I sure have!! Talk about LOTS of Amazing New Goodies!! Whoo Hoo! ;-) Well I've got some Really Great News!... All of the new Taylored Expressions products are now available in the New Department. Yay!! Time to do some Shopping! Whoo Hoo! ;-) 

And today I am Super Thrilled to be sharing a March New Release Project with you all featuring TE's Brand New Carried Away Stamp and Die Combo along with TE's Brand New Metallic Neutrals CS's as well to create a simply Darling Card that can be used for a Wedding or even an Engagement  Congratulations card too!... 8-)
I thought I'd try my hand at a watercolor BG since I've been so inspired by all the dreamy watercolor cards and projects I've been seeing so much of lately, I just had to jump on the band wagon, lol ... 8-) I really Love how this card turned out!!  And even though, I'm not sure who I will be sending it to, I am just thrilled to have it on hand just in case we hear of some upcoming happy news from friends or family... 8-)
For my Focal BG, I started off by doing a little acrylic block watercoloring with a few Distress Inks in Dusty Concord, Aged Mahogany & Victorian Velvet ...;-) It's pretty simple, you just ink up your acrylic block with various distress ink pads, spritz with a bit of water and stamp or smear onto your Water Color CS. Then after it was completely dry, I just stamped my Carried Away Stamp and Die Combo image with Versamark ink and embossed with Gold EP. My Mats & BG layers were created with TE's New Metallic Neutrals CS and Watercolor CS. And to finish it all up I just adhered my Fun Carried Away Stamp and Die Combo Heart Balloon Die cuts and Stamped my Carried Away Stamp and Die Combo sentiment directly onto my Card BG with Clorox Frost White ink that I embossed with White EP... 8-)
