Taylored Expressions May Release Day…

Pam Sparks Lakeside Thurs

Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog post for Taylored Expressions May stamp and die release. My first card today features the NEW Build a Scene Lakeside die set and the NEW Paddle Out stamp set. I stamped the sentiment with the MISTI and Versafine Onyx Black ink. Lots of potential for man cards here!  YAY!

I inlaid some clouds and popped some up from the Little Bits Sun and Clouds die set. I used the Build a Scene Rolling Hills for the grass, die cut from Granny Smith card-stock.

I die cut the scene with the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets and mounted it to a piece of Toffee card-stock. I edged most of the scene pieces with Distress inks and the ink blending tool.

Pam Sparks RedWhiteBlue Marching On

When I saw this NEW Marching On die, I knew I HAD to have it!  I’ve always loved the silhouette kids stamps and now dies… swoon. hehe

I die cut it three times in black card-stock, glued them together and then glued them to a Toffee card-base. I die cut the NEW Lakeside Border die and the NEW Americana Script die in Red Pepper, Blue Corn and Sugar Cube card-stock. Glued or taped them together and adhered them to the card.

I embellished the card with some wood veneer stars cuz it’s a celebration!

Taylored Expressions CAS Party and Early Memorial Day…

 

Memorial Day…reflect…be thankful…

I don’t know about you but it’s rare I sit and look back.  So many memories and yes I’m thankful! Yesterday we went to a Civil War Reenactment that our grandson participated in.  History brought to life. So many things going through my mind now.

On the fun side though, they started the afternoon with a fashion show.  They showed and talked about the ‘ins and outs’ of dressing in that era. The hoop skirts…what a contrast to the skin tight jeans of today. eek!  Glad I can be in the middle and be comfortable!

oh cards… yes, I have two to share today! lol  Both are from the May Release at Taylored Expressions.

I die cut the new Starry Night Cutting plate in kraft card-stock and layered it to a navy, top folded A-2 size card base.

I embossed the new Brick embossing folder in red card-stock and then ran it through the Big Shot to die cut it with the new Build a Tag 4 die set.  Stitched edges… love!  It smashed the brick a little but I had inked one side of the folder with fired brick distress ink so I kinda like how it turned out!

I die cut the bell in gray from the new Patriotic treat toppers die set. Layered it on navy card-stock and mounted it to the tag with thin 3L mounting squares.

I stamped along the bottom of the tag with the word celebrate stamp from a TE Christmas set, A Winter View.

I glued on Studio Calico wood stars for embellishing and Lawn Fawn twine and hemp to finish off the tag.

Doodlebug Washi tape for the rainbow tea party and birthday party CAS cards I made… so fun… I know, it’s looks like I spent 10 minutes but actually I messed around for a few hours to get to these two cards! lol

 

PamSparksEventfulBirthdayPartyMay4 (1)

 

Here I used the new Block Party die and Eventful Birthday Party die.  I put washi on a piece of white card and die cut it for the background behind the gifts.   I love how it turned out!

 

PamSparksEventfulTeaPartyMay5 (1)

 

This one I used just a part of the new Eventful Tea Party Border die.  Glad I don’t have to pick a favorite!  love them all!

A close up… I used the happy and birthday cloud dies cut from Memory Box Sapphire card-stock and the Classic Uppercase Alphabet set for USA, cut from Memory Box Cranberry card-stock.

The stripes are ¾ inch strips, 4 ¼ inches long, glued on about a ½ inch apart on a Memory Box White A2 Notecard.

It’s ok,  go ahead and bust out singing!  ; )  Oh say can you see…by the dawn’s early light…

The next card…well… it’s kinda birthday in a ‘birth’ day kind of way!  Welcome Baby!

Here’s the Star Garland die again but I only used half of it.  I ‘hung’ the words in space using the Parker Lowercase Alphabet set and the Alphabet Soup set. So cute!

Memory Box Baby Carriage die, Baby Stuff and the rug is from the Palace Oval Frame Set.

I used a little RV21 Copic marker on the rattle and the center of the carriage wheels.

Dies glued and mounted to a Memory Box Cherry Blossom A2 Notecard.

Won’t this die be awesome for Christmas?!!!  YAY!
