Taylored Expressions May Release Day 3: Celebrate Banner and Little Bits -Skateboard

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to Day 3 of the Taylored Expressions May Sneak Peeks!! All the products will be released tomorrow morning: Thursday May 5, 2016 at 7am PST!   For today's projects, I created some cards and projects with some amazing new dies!!!

My first project is a little patriotic themed card and party favor using the Celebrate Freedom Banner. I love that this banner die cuts each phrase separately and they can be used together or separately! I used it separately on the party favor made using the Tagging Along die :

I love this new party favor die called Tagging along! I created a little scene using the new Marching Along die on the front - a fun and easy way to create a little scene!

Here is a card that I created using the banner die: Celebrate Freedom -- I had fun creating a little Patriotic fun by using the Litter Bits - Patriotic confetti here are there along with the Star Stackelts 1 dies:

Here is a closer peek at the card: I used the embossing folder soon to be released: Lots of Stars: I love how all the elements look together - so so much fun using red, white and blue elements here and there to create a little patriotic scene!

For my second project - I created a fun card using the Little Bits -Skateboard die! I thought it would be the perfect card to give to my son -- and tried to make it "cool" but I still had to use a ribbon even though it was for him -- hope he still thinks its cool!! 

Here is closer peek at the skateboard - I used felt for the base for some texture and then used different colors on the Stitched Frame Stacklets and cut out different colors of cardstock and layered it up. For the center panel, I embossed it using the Know the Ropes Embossing Folder.  Love how this turned out:
