September Release Day with Taylored Expressions

Hello everyone!!  Today is an exciting day over at Taylored Expressions....it is Release Day!!  It is a very special release because it is Taylored Expressions 6th Birthday!!  To celebrate, along with new stamps and dies, Taylored Expressions is releasing their very own line of patterned paper and coordinating cardstock, as well as their own Embossing Folders.

On this card, I used the new Party Monsters coordinating dies set along with the new Double The Fun papers and the new Zig Zag embossing folder.

I stamped this fun little Party Monster and then colored him in with my Copic markers.  I used the new coordinating Party Monsters dies to cut him out and then mounted him on a 5x5 card base that I have embossed with the new Zig Zag embossing folder.  

Isn't the colors in this new 6x6 Double The Fun paper pack so fun?!?  I love how well it makes my little monster POP!  I also used the Small Scallop Border die and finished it off with a bit of stitching with my sewing machine and also some pen stitching and buttons. 
 
To celebrate our 6th year, we've designed a special party favor, Think Happy Thoughts. This petite stamp set includes a very "happy" coordinating die and will be FREE with orders over $50 beginning on September 11th - September 21st. One free set per customer, while supplies last.

Don't forget to visit the TE Blog for a fun sketch challenge with a $250 prize gift certificate. 

Thanks for visiting, crafty friends! If you'd like to see more projects and new product information, please head over to the TE Blog for a complete blog roll of our participating designers!

Have a great day!!

Wicked Halloween Pumpkin Card with Peachy Keen Stamps

Hello and welcome back to my blog as I share a fun card with some awesome face stamps from Peachy Keen Stamps.  I created this spooky pumpkin card using the Zombie Face Assortment and my Cricut to cut the pumpkins......

The sentiment and frame are from the Halloween Sentiments and Label set.  Here is a closer look:

I also used some of the Solid Mandarin bakers twine from The Twinery on my card as a great accent.
 
You can check out more details and also check to see if you were the blog hop winner for the September release over HERE on the Peachy Keen Stamps blog.  One of the winners left a comment on my blog.  ;)

Picnic Card

As summer winds down, I am trying to pack as many summer memories into our days for the kiddos.  We love packing a picnic and taking it to the park while the weather is still nice.  I thought that it would be fun to create this little picnic scene with the newly released Little Bits dies from Taylored Expressions.
 

I used the new Ants and Watermelon dies on my card.  I also used the Label Stacklets 8 for a focal point on this card.  I created the cloud background with a die cut image from the Sunny Days dies.  I added a stamped sentiment from the Love Grows Here stamp set.  Take a closer look.....
To finish off my card, I added a bit of grass with the Grass Border die, a bit of black stitching, green ribbon and a black button.

Hop on over HERE to check out all the new stamps and dies that were recently released at Taylored Expressions....there are some pretty AWESOME new sets.

Hugs,
Amy

Peachy Keen Stamps August Challenge Card

Hi friends!!  I hope that your summer is going along well.  I know that school is about to start here and for some it has already started.  When I was younger, school didn't start until the end of August.  Since I homeschool, we can start whenever we want to....but I plan on getting started next week.

Today there is a new challenge up over at the Peachy Keen Stamps forum and I created this card to help inspire you to join us.....

I combined both the sketch and color challenge on my card, but to participate, you don't have to combine them....just use one or the other.  I used the Spring Gear Flowers stamp set on this card and colored the gear flower image with my Copic markers.  Here is a closer look at the image.....
 
I mounted the gear flower on an Action Wobble....check it out in action.....

I hope you can hop on over to the Peachy Keen Community HERE and join us for this fab challenge!!

Have a great weekend!!

Hugs,
Amy
