Hello Friends and fellow papercrafters. Today I want to share with you some fun cards featuring new dies by Taylored Expressions. Let me show you the dies first:
Taylored Expressions is known for their Build-A-Scene dies and these follow that tradition. Each die creates a scene and they all work together beautifully.
Now for some sample cards using these dies:
For the Santa card I used elements from all three sets plus the wonderful Woodgrain Background stamp and Brick embossing folder.
Santa – Taylored Expressions dies By the Fireside, By the Fireside Holidays, By the Fireside Santa, Little Bits Santa Hat; TE stamp Woodgrain Background; TE embossing folder Brick; design inspired by Jen Shults
These dies are perfect for making scenes for any occasion. Here I embellished the fireplace with Halloween dies for a spooky Halloween scene.
Halloween – Taylored Expressions dies By the Fireside, Little Bits dies Cauldron, Broom, Spider and Web, Potion Bottles and Witch’s Hat; TE Stamp set with coordinating dies Peek-A-Boo Pumpkins; Memory Box die Stitched Circles; TE embossing folders Bead Board and Brick; design inspired by Melody Rupple
Taylored Expressions line of Door to Door dies work wonderfully with the fireside dies. Here I used the Door to Door decor die set to dress the fireplace for fall. Sorry about the reflection (yes I turned off the lights and the flash!) -- it's hard to photograph mirror paper.
Here's a traditional Christmas fireplace decorated with stockings, holly and a glittering reindeer in a frame!
Reindeer – Taylored Expressions dies By the Fireside, By the Fireside Holidays, By the Fireside Santa, Little Bits Reindeer and Frame in Frame; TE embossing folder Brick; design inspired by Keia Shipp-Smith
In a recent post I announced that Hampton Arts was releasing the new Stamp Perfect stamping tool for positioning stamps accurately. Because this tool is brand new and because Hampton Arts is dealing with the aftereffects of Hurricane Matthew, I do not have a video showing this tool at work. So I am linking here to a Misti video that will introduce you to how this tool works and its many benefits. Please know that Misti is the original tool in this category and has a patent pending on its tool.
Stamping is now easier than ever with the Stamp Perfect stamp positioning tool! It allows you to precisely position your image and create perfect impressions every time you stamp. No more wasting time or money throwing away failed attempts. Simply re-stamp images that didn't transfer perfectly. Quickly and easily create identical cards and projects. Use with cling mounted rubber stamps or with clear stamps with the foam mat provided.
• Stamp Perfect measures 7" x 9"
• Hinged design with grid and ruler guides
• Features magnetic backing allows you to align, center, layer and more.
• An inexpensive solution to your everyday stamping problems!
The Stamp Perfect tool will be released in late November (just in time for mass producing Christmas cards!) and I am selling it now for an introductory price of just $24.99 -- half the price of the Misti tool. I have ordered quite a few, however, these will sell out and I will not be able to get more this year. So I urge you to reserve yours today at this introductory price. Just send me a email and tell me how many you need and I will hold them for you.
