Taylored Expressions Special Release

Taylored Expressions is bursting at the seams with so much sweet new rubber that we couldn't fit it all in the regular monthly release!  We are excited to bring you a one-time mid-month release of 3 new stamp sets - Labels of Love, You're My Type - Upper and You're My Type - Lower.  As if that weren't exciting enough, these new sets are designed to coordinate with Spellbinders dies! Everything we are showing you is available TODAY!!!

We also want to take this opportunity to express a huge thank you to Spellbinders who generously provided our team members with Grand Calibur die cutting machines!  I couldn't believe it when I got mine and I really love using it for cutting multiple dies at once, Grand Nestabilities and Impression Plates! 

The first project I have to show you uses the You're My Type - Upper along with the Nested Pennant Dies and Grand Labels One Nestabilities.  I created a framed name pennant for my son, Isaac.  I used papers from the Lil Man Collection by Cosmo Cricket.  I started by punching circles out of Choice Buttercream cardstock and stamping the letters in Isaac's name.  Next I die cut the little banners using one of the small dies in the Nested Pennant set and attached the letters to each banner with foam adhesive. 


Using my Grand Calibur made this next part SUPER easy.  I was able to die cut the Grand Labels One AND the large pennant at once!  The plates go through the machine very smoothly.  I didn't use one in this project, but I LOVE to use Impression Plates in my Grand Calibur because it gives me a deeper impression than when I use my Cuttlebug. . .and I don't snap my plate with thicker cardstock like I have with my Cuttlebug. 

Finally, I assembled all of the pieces of my framed art and added some hemp for the banner to "hang" from and some ricrac along the bottom.

My second project today uses the Labels of Love set along with the coordinating Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio 3.  I used papers from the Modern Homemaker Collection by October Afternoon for my card. 


The Labels of Love set is a full sized stamp set consisting of 31 images (7 frames, 6 flourishes and 18 sentiments).  For my card, I also used the Friendship Blooms Dies to create the flower along with the Leafy Branch Die.  The scalloped border along the bottom was created using the Medium Scallop Border Die

Remember, you don't even have to wait for these items to be released!  They are available NOW!
