TE Sneak Peek Day 3: Hippos, Birdies and Babies

It's day 3 of sneak peeks for the March release from Taylored Expressions!! I have some fun new products today. Both could be used for babies, but I turned one into a fun masculine birthday card.

Be sure to check out 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.

All the products that I have used are linked at the bottom, but remember that new products aren't available until Thursday, March 3, 7 a.m. PST.

Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the TE blog to answer Taylor's Question of the Day for a chance to win a prize from the latest release!

Baby Bottle Shaker

There's nothing cuter than a new baby - except maybe a shaker card!!  Just kidding...but I love the fun of a shaker and with the new Baby Bottle Shaker die along with the previously released Little Bits - Baby Confetti, it's easy to create a fun baby card.

I wanted the full focus on the bottle so I kept the background simple using the new Welcome Baby Banner and one of the banners from the previously released Skinny Mini Party Borders.  Here's a close-up of the confetti along with some seed beads.

Here's the supply list for this card (but new product links won't work until tomorrow) - there's another card after this so be sure to keep scrolling!

I had problems getting the picture link for the confetti - so here's the verbal link to Little Bits - Baby Confetti.

Hippo Birdy to You

The stamp set Hippo Birdy has been available for awhile - but guess what's new tomorrow - the coordinating dies!!  I no longer buy any stamp set without dies - I love that you can put the images on top of patterned paper and that you can create dimension by popping images. (And I can't cut a straight line so I'd never hand cut anything!)

TE Hippo Birdy

There are so many cute animals in this set and there are four sentiments two for birthdays, a thanks and a welcome baby. (I want to stamp a variety of animals on sweet patterned paper and make a zoo card to welcome a new baby!)  I used the basic die set Pockets & Pages 3x4 Essentials (it's for pocket scrapbooking but has multiple basic shapes that can be used for cards). The embossing folder is new with this release - it's Houndstooth Embossing.
