Taylored Expressions February Sneak Peeks: Graphic Greeting (St Paddy's) and Sack It To you Leprecahun!

 HI Everyone!!!

I am so excited to share some of the goodies that will be released this week from Taylored Expressions!!! There are going to be soooo many new dies, cutting plates and the cutest stamps to boot - and to start out with - I am showing some new St.Paddy's fun starting off with the continuation of the Graphic Greetings series and this one is called Graphic Greetings - St. Paddy's. I love all the Graphic Greetings and all the fun things that they have all in one stamp - but for this card, I thought I would focus on one of the sentiments: "Kiss Me" and cut that out from the group and the great a card around that.

For this card, I used the Party Banner Cutting Plate and then in the spot where you can put the sentiment, I popped up the sentiment "Kiss Me" (one of the sentiments from this stamp set) and then added some lips and hearts along with the new Floral Eyelet Border under the sentiment "Kiss Me":

I also added a line of stickles to the pennant rows and then added a 4 leaf clover that is part of the Graphic Greetings set and then also popped it up near the kissy lips and above the graphic greeting  sentiment  - here is a closer peek:

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Graphic Greetings - St.Paddy's Day from Taylored Expressions
Paper: Green Cardstock and Jillibean Soup DP
Inks: Memento Bamboo LEaves
Accessories: Party Banner Cutting Plate, Floral Eyelet Border, stickles, heart punch and dimensionals

So much fun to add some lips to a St.Paddy's day card :) and to continue with the Luck of the Irish  theme, my second project features the continuation of the Sack It To You series - where you can create a favor by making a sack and then decorating it as you wish - ooooorrrrr.... you can create a gift pack by putting this ontop of the Junior Mints packet for a ready to eat snack at your fingertips!!! I LOVE me some Junior Mints - this is my definition of a lucky Irish treat :)

Here is close up view of this tag - isnt he just the cutest little guy ever? I love the sparkle in his eye and his fun little smoke pipe. I paper crimped his beard and then added a little color to cheeks by distressed it a little bit:

Project Ingredients - Junior Mints pack

Stamps: Mocha Shannon from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Bamboo Leaves
Paper: various colored card stock and Choice Buttercream card stock
Accessories: Sack It To You - Leprechaun, paper crimper, Embossing Plate

I embossed the hat and then using the Moka Shannon stamp set that will be released this week, I stamped the sentiment : Happy St.Paddy's Day (with the four leaf-clover coming out of his hand. I also created some rosy cheeks - he looks like such a fun little guy to hang out with!!!

I am having trouble putting this together the beard is too wide for the sack and if you have to cut a face out then you have a lot of wasted paper since you would have to cut out the beard at the same time with flesh colored paper. Is there something I'm not understanding the other sack it dies were so easy
