Taylored Expression Release Day!!

Happy Friday everyone!  Today is release day at Taylored Expressions, and as a guest DT member I get to share a couple of cards too!  I have a lot more cards planned out for this month using these latest stamps...so be sure to check back at times!  I don't want you to miss out!

This first card uses the new Banner stamp set & die, and I combined it with a set from last month! I also used paper from the Valentine Project Pantry kit...which has fabulous colors! Here is what I came up with:
"Best Wishes" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics& Papertrey Ink
Paper: We R Memory Keepers
Stamps/Dies: Taylored Expressions  (New Beginnings & It's A Banner Day-1)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: pink, mint, raven black)
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Flowers: Recollections
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Diecut/Embossing Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft
Embossing Folder: Argyle by Provo Craft 

And this next card uses a new home set by Taylored Expressions!  A very cool part about this new set, called Cozy Cottages, is that sales of the set will benefit "Habitat for Humanity".  If you purchase the set from February through March, Taylored Expression will give $7.00 from each set purchased to this wonderful cause.  Please note that the stamps do not come trimmed, so they are able to cut some costs and give more! So, if you love this set...buy it soon and benefit a wonderful charity!

And while the set was meant for coloring, as a non coloring stamper...I used them in silhouette form!  And I love how it turned out!  I also used the striped paper from the Valentine's Project Pantry Kit for this one too! Check it out: 
"Home Sweet Home" supplies:
Cardstock/Button: Papertrey Ink
Paper: We R Memory Keepers
Stamps: Taylored Expressions (Cozy Cottages)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: pink, mint, cranberry, raven black)
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Twine: Darice Inc.
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Glitter: Doodlebug Designs

Be sure to check out what everyone else came up with too! 
Until later,
