Taylored Expressions May Spotlights - Mr. & Mrs. Cutting Plate - Graphic Greetings Dad

Hi All! And a Very Happy Friday to you! 8-) Aren't you just Loving all the Fabulous New Goodies? Hope you are Loving them as much as I am! 8-) And just in case you didn't get a chance to stop by yesterday, I'm Sharing the news again...8-)  All of the new Taylored Expressions products are now available in the Fresh Out of the Oven Department. Whoo Hoo!! Time to do some Shopping! Yay! lol 8-)

Well, today I'm back to share it's Designers choice for one last May New Release project! Yay! And I've been having so much fun with all the New Release Goodies, that I couldn't pick just one, lol  so I have Two Last projects for you today! And the first one features the Beautiful Brand New Mr. & Mrs. Cutting Plate... 8-) Can I just say, this is Truly one Beautiful Cutting Plate!! You can make such Fabulous Wedding day creations with it & all in the blink of an eye, or a turn of the handle on your Die Cutting machine, that is, lol ;-)
Well for my creation today, I was going for a Soft Subtle & Elegant look... Not sure if I achieved it or not, but My Hubby says he thinks I did... I always Love to get his opinion on my creations.. 8-)  Either way, I think it turned out pretty Sweet if nothing else, lol And it's actually much more sparkly IRL... 8-) For my Mats & BG Layers I chose Choice Buttercream CS and Simple Stories Vintage Bliss 6x6 Collection and lots of Stardust Stickles! ;-)  And I popped it all up with a bit of foam tape for some fun dimension.. 8-)

Next up, I just HAD to create one more card with The Awesome New Graphic Greetings Dad Stamp! I Sooo Love all the Graphic Greetings stamps!! They just make it So easy and fun to whip up Fabulous cards in a snap! And Hey, what's not to Love about that! ;-)
& to top it all off, I So Love how this Fun Father's Day card turned out and it came together really quickly too! 8-) For my Focal panel, I first lightly smudged my black CS with Frost White Color box ink , and **Very importantly, used my embossing buddy BEFORE stamping The Brand New Graphic Greetings Dad image also with Frost White Colorbox ink, and then embossed it with white EP. (The Embossing buddy helps prevent the Embossing powder from sticking anywhere else but the stamped image..) And I added a bit more white ink smudges after embossing just for good measure...8-) I double matted my image and popped it up with a bit of foam tape.  My  BG card bases were created with Bazzill CSKraft CS, TE's Star Border Die and Simple Stories 24/7 6x6 Paper Pad... And there you have it, pretty easy peasy, huh?...;-) 

The Baker's Dozen have lots more Amazing Goodies in store for you this morning, so hop on over and see... 8-)

  1. Great cards! Enjoy your weekend, Colinda

  2. WoW! That first card is so pretty and elegant looking. Love that die!!!
    Another great card for all the dads out there too!
    Two more wonderful creations.

  3. I think you got soft and subtle too. Love the plaid peeking through the die and love all the sparkle. Also really enjoy your chalkboard creations!

  4. Both of your cards are beautiful, how you added the dp behind the Mr & Mrs cutting plate and the chalkboard technique looks awesome on the second!!!!

  5. LOVE that cutting plate and the paper behind the flowers! LOVE the sentiment on the Dad's day card! So FAB, Shannon!

  6. wow, these are fabulous. But I sure do love that first one, love how you used design paper behind those flowers. So cool.

  7. Two very different but equally pretty cards! Have a great weekend my crafty friend!

  8. Wow on two counts! There's gorgeousness all over the first card with the fabulous die cut panel and mega-sparkly letters and card base. And how much more perfect could a Father's day card be? Someone will feel very special when they receive that card!

  9. Good Morning from Scotland,
    Love, Love, Love that wonderful Mr & Mrs Cutting Die that is a definite must have. You have created a stunning card using it.
    Love the Father Day card, the wording on the stamp is brilliant another must have.
    Must check out the supplier to see what the shipping cost would be.
    Have a Fantastic Day
