Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks: Balloon Buddies and One & Only You
Hi there! I hope you're having a great day! Today starts the beginning of sneak peeks for the Taylored Expressions September Release! :) And this release is extra special because it's TE's 7th birthday!! We have lots of fun new products to show you over the next few days!! Today I have two projects to share and the first uses the NEW Balloon Buddies set. Balloon Buddies is a fun set with animals and balloons. It has a coordinating die set, Balloon Buddies, that will be available for purchase separately.
For my card I used it along with the NEW Presents Cutting Plate. The Presents Cutting Plate comes with dies that you can "back" the presents so they will be a different color from what is behind them. The background paper is from the NEW Hello Happiness 6x6 Paper Pack. This a fun, happy new paper pack with patterns that are great for birthdays or just celebrations in general! The cardstocks I used are from the NEW Hello Happiness Matched Kit. There are two new color cardstocks this month, Pink Champagne and Mint Julep! The elephant was stamped, colored and then die cut using the Balloon Buddies Coordinating Dies. I love how he looks like he's flying away! :) Another new product I used on this card is the Skinny Mini Party Borders. They create a fun party atmosphere when you string them across a card! As a finishing touch I added sequins from the NEW Hello Happiness Matched Sequins.
The second project I have to share today uses the NEW One & Only You Stamp & Die Combo. One & Only You will be free with a purchase of $50 or more during our birthday celebration.This is a fun sentiment set that comes with a coordinating die. The die diecuts a cursive "you" and the stamped sentiments can pair with that "you".
For my card, I used the "celebrating" sentiment along with the fun papers from the Hello Happiness 6x6 Paper Pack. On the top of the card, I used the NEW Graphic Impressions - Birthday Embossing Folder. Again, I used the Skinny Mini Party Borders to add to the "celebration"! :) And of course it wouldn't be a party with the Hello Happiness Matched Sequins to give the card some sparkle!
