Taylored Expressions - From Our Home to Yours - Die Focus

Hi all! And a Very Happy Wednesday to you! 8-) Well, today I'm back with a quick post, to share my latest Taylored Expressions creation inspired by TE's Awesome Handmade Charms Dies, TE's Label Stackles 9 Dies & TE's Baby It's Cold Outside stamp set as well, to create these Fun Festive Gift Tags!...;-)
Can I tell you, I just had Soo much fun putting these Sweet Gift Tags together. 8-) I always put together some yummy homemade holiday baked goods and pack them up with a bottle of Champagne in Festive packaging to give out to our closest friends and neighbors each year and thought these would be Perfect to top them off...8-)
I started off by cutting out my Sweet Handmade Charms Houses from some Yummy Split Pea and Cranberry Taylored Felt & swapped out the different colored hearts just for fun... 8-)
Next I adhered each of my Cute Little Handmade Charms houses with a bit of Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to TE Label Stackles 9 Die cuts after inking the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink. Nest I stamped them with TE's  Baby It's Cold Outside sentiments and popped them up with some foam tape.. 8-)
I created my tag bases with the help of TE's Label Stacklets 9 Die, Cranberry and Old Olive CS's, Simple Stories DIY Christmas 6x6 Collection along with Simple Stories Cozy Christmas 6x6 collection as well. And to finish them all up I added We R Memory Keepers Wide Eyelets and a some fun ribbon from my stash!... 8-)

Here are the items I used for my project today...

Hope you all have a Super day and thanks so much for dropping in! 8-)

Hi all! And a Very Happy Friday to you!

Here's Stephanie's Awesome make..
And here's my inspired take... ;-)
I actually made up a few of these Fun Holiday makes as I am still in the processes of re-building my severely depleted Christmas card supply, lol and am still finding myself in need of LOTS more Christmas cards for this years mailing list YIKES!! lol ;-) And I completely LOVE that these will be easily mailed with no extra bulk & still have lost of Texture and a touch of fun Sparkle too! 8-)  Thanks for the inspiration Stephanie!! ;-)
Believe it or not, these Fun Festive cards came together really quickly with the help of Jingle All the Way Dies, TE's Sheet Music Embossing Folder, TE's Sugar Cube Premium CS, a bit of foam tape along with Some Gold Sparkly CS from my stash as well..8-) 
My Mats and BG layers were created with TE's Sugar Cube Premium CS, Cherry Cobbler CS, and Simple Stories Darling Cozy Christmas 6x6 collection too. 
And to finish them all up I just added my Gold Sparkly Jingle All the Way bells and a bit of gold sparkly ribbon from my stash... 8-)

Let It Snow - Taylored Expressions Colored Dry Embossing! 8-)

Hi all! And a Very Happy Tuesday to you! 8-) Well, today I'm back with a quick post, to share my latest Taylored Expressions creation inspired by TE's Awesome Snowfall Embossing Folder, TE's Baby It's Cold Outside stamp set, along with TE's Make a Snowflake Dies as well, to create these Festive Snowy Christmas cards to try my hand at the 'Coloring Dry Embossing' Technique... ;-)
I started off by embossing TE's Toffee Premium CS with TE's Snowfall EF and then colored all the dry embossed snow with my White Sharpie Marker.  Now, I must admit, I chose a pretty easy peasy Embossing Folder to color the embossed bits for the technique, lol but you still get the gist of it, lol... ;-) Plus I had this idea floating around my head for a while now, and knew TE's Snowfall EF would be just the Perfect addition!! 8-)
For my Mats & BG's I chose Simple Stories Cozy Christmas 6x6 collectionSimple Stories DIY Christmas 6x6 collection, Cherry Cobbler CS, TE's Toffee & Sugar Cube Premium CS's as well. To finish them all up, I stamped and embossed my Baby It's Cold Outside sentiments directly onto my BG's & added TE's Make a Snowflake Die cuts blinged up with a touch of Icicle Stickles & topped off with a couple of matching sequins from my stash. Pretty easy peasy, huh?...8-)

Here are the items I used for my project today...

Hope you all have a Super day & Thanks so much for dropping by! 8-)

Taylored Expressions November Release Day - Tag-Along Autumn! 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 share One last November New Release project featuring TE's Brand New Tag-Along Autumn stamp set, TE's Brand New Coordinating Tag - Along Autumn Dies and TE's Brand New Scattered Leaves Embossing Folder as well to create a few quick CAS type Thanksgiving Cards...8-)

I started off by stamping my Sweet Tag-Along Autumn Pumpkins with Memento Tuxedo Black, & colored them up with my trusty Copics. I cut them out with the help of TE's Brand New Tag-Along Autumn Dies & popped them up with a bit of foam tape... 8-)
My Mats and BG layers were created with the help of TE's Instant Photo Frame Die cuts that I trimmed down a little to make them more square, along with TE's Sugar Cube & Brand New Sweet Basil Premium CS's, TE's Brand New Scattered Leaves EF, patterned paper from Simple Stories Sweater Weather collection. To finish them all up, I stamped my Tag-Aong Autumn sentiment directly onto my focal panels with Memento Tuxedo Black and added some touches of distressing with Antique Linen & Vintage Photo Distress inks... Which I am wondering now, if I over did a bit, lol.. I Was going for Super CAS with a  touch of Rustic thrown in... lol  So I'm still not sure if I like how they turned out or not, lol... CAS is still a challenge for me, so they seem like they still need a little something, lol but my Sweet Hubby says he Likes them, lol... Hmm.. he may just be humoring me, lol... 8-)
