Taylored Expressions: Hooray and the Best Dad

It's the third day of sneak peeks for the April release from Taylored Expressions. Today I'm focusing on two brand new concepts. You'll love them!  Everything you see today will be available tomorrow - Thursday, April 5th, 2018. Be sure to check out each of the creative team members' blogs for all of the sneak peeks - starting with the Taylored Expressions blog.

The first new concept is the Cutting Edge series.  Let me show you, then I'll explain!

Taylored Expressions Cutting Edge Balloons

The die to cut the balloons cuts just the edge of the balloons so is appropriately called Cutting Edge - Balloons!!  For my card, I put the "cutting edge" at the top and simply filled in behind it with the new Confetti Cake cardstock embossed with the Sprinkles Embossing folder!  In this case, be SURE to check out the rest of the design team - there are so many fun and creative uses for this set and the other two new Cutting Edge sets (stars and flowers). They would also work really well with the second new concept that you'll see below..

There are multiple sentiments with this set and a couple of extra balloons.  I kept my card very simple and it totally works because of the fun and creative concept.

Here's the supply list for this card. Be sure to keep scrolling down for a chance at a prize and for another sneak peek.


Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with a giveaway during each day of sneak peeks! Visit the TE blog to answer Taylor's Question of the Day for a chance to win one of the latest products before you can buy it.

The second new concept is the Caps Lock series.

The dies are large words and they are all contained on one die making the eclipse trend very easy to accomplish - LOVE them!!  AND there's a coordinating stamp set with the extra words to go with them.  Also brand new in this series is "MOM" and "GRAD".  (Can't you just see them tucked behind the cutting edge dies I showed above?!)

I stamped and colored the previously released Big Delivery Stamp & Die Combo. Then figured out where I wanted Dad to cut (which is very easy given the word comes on one big die).  I cut it and popped each of the letters with multiple layers of "DAD" cut on extra cardstock.  The sentiment comes from the coordinating stamp set Caps Lock Companion - Mom/Dad.

Wasn't today fun???  When I first saw these concepts, my head started spinning with ideas - so I'm sure you'll see many more cards from me (in fact, there might might another Caps Lock card tomorrow!)  Be sure to check out the inspiration on the TE blog and then come back tomorrow.

These are both so much fun! I love that little red truck. My late MIL always said she thought pick up trucks should be red!!

I do love those large word dies, and the Father's Day card you've created with that cool red truck is pretty darn awesome. But those cutting edge stamps and dies has me gasping! Those are such a brilliant idea, and I'm mad about the card you've made!! Perfect colors with a fun sentiment. My wallet might be in! Bev

A whole lot of happy happening in this post, Kim. Your balloons are cutting-edge delightful; the red pickup and inlaid Dad, fantastic! My uncle had a truck similar to that years ago, but in blue...fond memories sparked.
