Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks - Classy View - Blackboard & Accessories! 8-)

Hi All! And a Very Happy Wednesday to you! Today I'm back to share more August Sneak Peeks! Yay! 8-) And just in case you didn't get a chance to stop by yesterday, All of the new products will be available for purchase Tomorrow, Thursday, June 6th at 8 am PST. You'll find it ALL in the New Department at the Taylored Expressions StoreYay!! 8-)

Well, today I am Super Thrilled to share a couple more Fun Sneak Peek projects and the first one features the Brand New A Classy View Stamp set, A Darling Back to School follow up to our previously released Window Stamps and Dies...8-) Such an Adorable set, and I know you will Love creating lots of fun projects with it for all kinds of back to School and Teacher Appreciation type occasions!!;-)
I stamped my Sweet A Classy View scene onto Choice Snow White CS with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it up with my trusty Copics. I cut it out by hand and adhered it with a bit of foam tape to a TE Arched Window Die cut that I had shaded with E42, my Colorless Blender & a touch of Antique Distress ink, for some fun dimension...8-)
My Mats and BG were created with TE's Choice Kraft CSChoice Snow White CSTE's Banner Stacklet's 2 DiesTE's Banner Stacklets 1 Dies & Simple Stories I {Heart} Summer 6x6 collection.  To finish it all up I just inked my edges with a bit more Vintage Photo Distress ink and added a fun little polka dot bow created with the help of my Handy Dandy Bow Easy...8-)

Next up I am featuring the Fun New Blackboard & Accesories Dies along with the Brand New Love Teaching Stamp. They just seemed to go hand in hand to me and talk about a fun way to create quick, Easy and Fabulous Teacher Appreciation cards too! Just LOVE these two Awesome new sets!! 8-)
I kept my card design pretty CAS as I wanted the Blackboard & Accessories Dies and Fab Love Teaching Sentiment to really shine here. & I really LOVE how quickly this Sweet card came together too! 8-) And how much Fun is it to whip up a Chalkboard technique type card on an actual Super CUTE Die Cut Chalk Board!? Ack!! Just Love it! 8-)
I stamped my Love Teaching Sentiment with Colorbox Frost White and embossed with White EP right onto a sheet from Simple Stories I {Heart} Summer 6x6 collection, so there was no additional chalk smudging needed, lol ;-) and adhered it to my Blackboard & Accessories Die cuts created with dp from Crate Paper's The Pier 6x6 Collection that I shaded with E42, my colorless blender and a touch of Vintage Photo Distress ink as well. My mats and BG layers were created with a combination of Choice Snow White CS, & Simple Stories I {Heart} Summer 6x6 Collection. And to finish it all up I just inked my edges with a bit more Vintage Photo Distress ink & added a Cute little bow created with the help of my Bow Easy... And Voila! There you have it, pretty easy peasy, huh?... 8-)
