Hey there, it's here...it's here...the big day! Not only is it Release Day for all 21 of those fabulous stamp and die sets...it's Taylored Expressions ACTUAL birthday! 5 years today. Whoop! Now where did I put those party hats? *sigh* No worries, we don't need them to play the next party game. Are you ready to play What's Different? Head on over to Taylor's blog for details, including info on how to win some prizes! But first I have a card to share with you...
OMGosh...are you in love with the Totally Tags - Occassions set? There are nine new tags to play with in this set, and it's the 6th set in the Totally Tags collection which coordinates with the Totally Tags dies. Have you ever wondered how to make a shaped die cut card without having a flat edge where the card opens? It's really pretty easy! Using the largest die in the Bloomin Stacklets 1 set, cut two pieces of paper (one pattern paper and one white card stock for the back of the card). Score the white card stock towards the top then adhere the scored section to the pattern paper. Easy peasy and no flat edge! The orange layer was die cut with the Totally Tags die and the daisy image was stamped with Tuxedo Black, colored with Copic markers then fussy cut and popped up on foam. What's a flower without leaves? They were die cut using Mega Leaves then adhered to the inside. Love those fun, bright colors! The pattern paper is actually from the Halloween Project Pantry Kit...pretty awesome you can use it for other projects besides Halloween, huh? *grin*
