Taylored Expressions February Spotlights: Milestone Marker

Hi Everyone,

Did you catch the release of all the yummy new dies and stamps in the Taylored Expressions Store yesterday! There are so many new crafty wonderfulness at the TE store and today, I wanted to share some cards that uses the new stamp set: Milestone Marker and some of the new coordinating number dies - the Poster Graphic Number dies (which coordinates perfectly with the previously released: Poster Graphic Alphabet dies

One of our friends is celebrating a golden birthday and I thought it would be fun to create a personalized card with her name. I die cut her name with two different papers from the Pebbles Family Ties collection (6x6) using the Poster Graphic Alphabet dies and the number 50 using the new Poster Graphic Number dies. Here is a my card her birthday:


Card Ingredients:
StampsMilestone Marker stamp set and Build a Treat stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Nautical Navy and Bamboo Green
AccessoriesPoster Graphic Alphabet dies and  Poster Graphic Number dies  from Taylored Expressions, Banner Stacklets, Circle punches, Scalloped Nesties, stickles, Copics and dimensionals


I stamped the words "happy" and "birthday" with two different inks and then cut it out with the Banner Stacklets dies - which I also used to cut out DP for the layout of my card. I assembled the different "pieces" of the card and then added a little cupcake angled to the side from the Build a Treat stamp set. I couldn't put down either stamp set and kept going to create another card using the sentiments from the Milestone Marker stamp set. There are so many different ways to create sentiments in this set - different numbers for all those special milestones - along with anniversary, birthday sentiments to make it more personal. I also love the sentiment "____ is the new ____" ha! Love it! So for all those special friends or yourself turning a big milestone year - this is the perfect sentiment!!! I created one that says: "40 is the new 30" :

After awhile the age you are turning on your birthday starts to feel surreal doesn't it - age really doesn't matter it is how you feel on the inside - my grandmother at the age of 80 had waaaaay more energy than I ever did - I could never keep up with her! I love how this card turned out and can't wait to make more of these Milestone cards!
