Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Release Day Fun from Taylored Expressions! Today Taylor releases all of the Petites, coordinating dies and card-kits that we have been peeking all week! These petites (they measure 3x5 and are such a great way to sample TE stamps if you haven't yet!) and card kits are absolutely the perfect stocking gift for your crafty friend (or yourself! ;) All of the Petites are made of cute red rubber and come already cut, mounted on EZ foam and ready for stamping! And Taylor has the perfect Petite Storage Cases (that you can receive for Free with the purchase of 6 stamps) or with a card kit - it is the perfect way to hold all of your petites (6 will fit in one storage case) or your ribbon, bling etc. 

Yessterday, I peeked a sample from the Fly Your Flag 3 stamp set plus die and today, I thought I would peek a sample using the Fly Your Flag 1 and Fly Your Flag 2 plus dies. I created a little merry jolly banner using the dies and the Trim the Tree die using the sentiment from the Sparkle and Cheer stamp set. I love that these flag dies can be folded over - which makes it so perfect for putting twine through a banner and you can pop it up more by putting a dimensional in the middle as a sandwich. I decorated the edges with a little bit of liquid pearls and created snow on the ground by tearing some kraft cardstock that was then sponged with white ink:

Card Ingredients: Be Merry
: Kraft cardstock, Red and Green Bazzil cardstock
Stamps: You are my Type (lowercase), Sparkle and Cheer (snowflakes and sentiment)
Inks: Memento inks Dark Brown, Chalk ink White
Accessories: Snowflake Punch from MS, Trim the Tree Die, Fly Your Flag Dies (1 and 2) dies, twine, dimensionals

Here is another wintery holiday card that I tried to make using white as the main color with some little blue accents. I used the Snowflake Wreath Petite set and cut it out using the coordinating Seasonal Wreath die: 

Card Ingredients:
: Snow White Choice cardstock
Stamps: Snowflake Wreath by Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Inks: Danube Blue, Bahama Blue, Cat's Eye Platinum, and Ladybug Red for bow
Accessories: Seasonal Wreath die from Taylored Expressions, Kaiser bling, corner puncher MS, Spellbinders, White opal liquid pearls, ribbon from stash, star punch from MS in the center, dimensionals

And then when I went to sleep one night, I suddenly thought that I could make a sun using the Fly Your Flag 3 die - and so the next day, I couldn't wait to try it out and then created this scrapbook page for my little sunbeam using the  Fly Your Flag 1 and Fly Your Flag 2 dies to create the banner. All of the papers, rhinestones, ribbon and accessories was made using the Basic Grey Indie Bloom Card Kit:

Page Ingredients:
Stamps: Fly Your Flag 1, Fly Your Flag 2, Fly Your Flag 3 and You're My Type (Uppercase) Stamp sets from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Chalk inks Dark Brown
Accessories: 1/2" punch, 1" and 2" circle punch, star punch from MS, EK success border punch, corner rounder and dimensionals

Here is a little mini tutorial that I created
