Happy Birthday Taylored Expressions: Release Day

by - September 08, 2020

Hey everyone! 

I am super excited to be sharing my first release day post as DT for Taylored Expressions. This release is full of fun exciting products perfect for celebrating birthdays. This release is now available in the TE Store!

My first (and favorite) product is the Pretty Package die which is great for giving out gift cards. As the gift card slot die is separate, I decided to skip it and add a sentiment instead.

For this card, I ink blended the top of the package using Lollipop, Candy Corn, and Pineapple TE Premium ink using TE's super soft blending brushes. The 'ribbons' on the package were ink blended using Pineapple, Granny Smith, and Blue Raspberry ink. I stamped the 'confetti' image from Balloon Birthday Additions using Confetti Cake ink. I then blended the top of the panel using the same ink. The balloons from Balloon Birthday Additions were stamped using Pineapple, Lollipop, Granny Smith, and Blue Raspberry ink. I then finished off the card by stamping sentiments from Everyday Birthday, Counting Candles Add-Ons, and Millie's Birthday Bash. 

Supply List:

My next card uses the adorable life of the party set! There are so many ways to use these single animals and here is one layout. I first stamped the 'confetti' using TE's white embossing powder and then ink blended the background Cupcake, Pineapple and Confetti Cake TE ink. I then cut a semi-circle using Buttercream Frosting cardstock and then stamped sentiments from Life of the Party and Millie's Birthday Bash. I colored the cute critters using Copic markers and then placed them behind the semi-circle to finish it off!

Supply List:

My next card uses the innovative On Repeat stamp and die set. This is perfect for mass producing sentiments to make creative backgrounds. For this card, I stamped and embossed the On Repeat Birthday stamp on Pineapple, Lollipop, Blue Raspberry and Blueberry cardstock. I stamped and embossed On the Block-Happy on Earl Grey cardstock and added a black shadow so that it pops! I then arranged all the pieces on a Sea Salt panel.

Supply list:
I then used the remaining strips along with an image from Millie's Birthday Bash to create this simple yet striking birthday card! The On Repeat stamps definitely make it easier to create quick cards with endless possibilities :) 

Supply list:

My last card shows you a quick way to use the All Tucked In - Birthday stamp set. I first stamped the 'confetti' image from this set using Confetti Cake Ink and then lightly distressed the panel using Salt Water Taffy ink. The center panel was ink blended using Strawberry Milkshake, Candy Corn and Pineapple ink. I then heat embossed various sentiments from the All Tucked In stamp set to create a background and added an image colored with copics from Millie's Birthday Bash. I then finished it off with a sentiment from Tag Team Birthday on the side!  

Supply List:
And that's it folks! I hope you like the cards I made for the release :) I will be making a few more in the next couple of days so be sure to check out my instagram!
