Taylored Expressions Release Day: Sky High

It's here!  All of the new products from Taylored Expressions are available!  Also be sure to head over to the TE Blog for a few more sneak peeks and, if you've been leaving comments, the winners of the giveaways.

I have one more sneak peek for you.

I mentioned on Tuesday that I have lots and lots of graduation cards to make.  The cards that I showed you on that day were all fairly classic graduation-style cards.  But there's a new set of stamps and dies this month that can make gorgeous and meaningful cards in a very different style using balloons!  This card includes the Sky High Hot Air Balloons die set and the Sky High Sentiments stamp set.

I used Peapod, Candy Corn, Salt Water Taffy, Sugar Cube and the new Lavender Glaze cardstock.  The embossing folder is the previously released Cloudy Days Embossing Folder.  The sequins are from the new Double the Joy Sequin set but I did pick out the pink sequins to coordinate better with this card.

Although I'm all about graduation this year, there are so many other uses for hot air balloons.  And even the balloon dies are all about flexibility.  The center of the big balloon is separate so you don't have to cut the little windows.  There are other details for the balloon baskets that I didn't use on this card. And there's even two more sizes that I haven't shown you.

Be sure to check all of the other designers starting on the Taylored Expressions blog because there is just too much for one designer to show off in just a few days.

And have fun shopping!

Your shaker grad card is, at the risk of being repetitive, awesome! Bright, fresh, cheery and most definitely, celebratory. Love this!
