TE Sneak Peek Day 1: Garden Party & Garden Party Critters

garden party

Welcome to sneak peeks for May’s Taylored Expressions release!  I’m so excited to share 2 brand new things  with you today! 

First: Taylor is adding stamp illustrator to her stamping resume with the launch of *te* stamps, TELogodesigned and illustrated wholly by her!! Her first sets are what we are sharing with you today and will be available for purchase on Friday May 7th 10:00 a.m. CDT!  They are fun and whimsical coordinating sets called Garden Party Blooms and Garden Party Critters and our first ever Big Background Stamp, Cloudy Days!  I just adore these stamps that will provide us with endless combinations for all our cardmaking, scrapbooking and gift-giving projects!!! 

On my first card, I used Garden Party Blooms for a bright and cheerful Spring/Summer card using the Basic Grey Green at Heart pattern papers.  I placed some of the smaller bold blooms and a larger open bloom and layered on top of a spellbinders blossom nestability.  In the center of the blooms, I used my cool new Embellie Jellie to place my Tiny Twinkles – have you seen this product in action?  Taylor made a great video you can watch-what a smart tool this is!!  I used some fun pom pom trim over a border punch and I love how this card turned out!

Second: Where do you go when you are looking forgarden critter ingredients for your recipes?  Well, the pantry of course!  Introducing the Project Pantry!  Taylored Expressions is introducing a new line of kits called the Project Pantry with just the right ingredients for your cardmaking and paper crafting projects. These kits will be a variation on our Key Ingredients and Taylored Card Kits and will be introduced for the release.  Additionally, you will have the option to purchase them with the coordinating stamp sets or separately!!

The kit I have to show you today is the Garden Party Project Pantry. I used it on my second card along with the Garden Party Critters stamp set!  This card was so fun to make – I love the bee hive and little bee, I just wish I had taken a picture so you could see the sparkle from the glitter pens I used.  The big sun is a cardstock sticker you will get in the kit that’s so cute!!

See Taylor’s blog for more details on what you will receive in the kit; but I want to let you know there is going to be a deal for  $59.95 you get the Project Pantry kit PLUS THE TWO NEW STAMP SETS illustrated by Taylor at a 10% savings!!
