Taylored Expressions Release Day!

Yippee!! All the new stamps and Taylored Dies are now available at Taylored Expressions!!! But before you head off to fill your cart, the Baker's Dozen is sharing a recap of Tweet Hearts, Take Note and the Taylored Dies.

I worked with Tweet Hearts again today and paired it with one of the Take Note Taylored Dies. Doesn't the image fit perfectly in the die?!? I stamped the images onto Choice Buttercream using Colourbox inks in blue lagoon, yellow ochre and orchid pastel and I popped the bird bath on foam tape for dimension. I sponged around the edges with Memento desert sand on the main image and a few of the layers. I created the background paper by stamping the paisley image with Versamark ink and the sentiment is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. I added some loopy chocolate satin ribbon and finished the card with a rolled paper flower and some Crystal Twinkles.

Taylored Dies are made from American steel and manufactured in the US. They work in nearly every die-cutting machine including the Cuttlebug by ProvoCraft and the BigShot by Sizzix. Our first dies coordinate with Taylored Expressions stamps allowing you to cut stamped images quickly, easily, and perfectly every time! And the best part...these dies cut more than just paper. When you receive your dies you'll want to try them with fabric, felt, metal, magnet, polyshrink, canvas and more. Taylor has a fabulous instructional video showing you how to use the dies with the deeply etched TE rubber stamps...it's a slightly different process than with clear stamps but it works like a charm every time!
