Taylored Expressions Sneak peeks Day1: Block Party Dad and Little Bits - Nailpolish

Hi Everyone!

Hope you all had a wonderful May Day! It always amazes me how fast the months fly by - can't believe its already May! Speaking of which,  welcome to Day 1 of the May Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks! Mark your calendars for Thursday (May 5th) at 7am PST!! Woohooooo!!!

Starting off for today, I have a project that I made for Father's Day using the Block Party - Dad die. Father's Day cards are always the hardest because I want to keep them simple and not girly, swirly, ribbon-y :). I used the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and then sponged it with both Memento Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa to bring out the woodsy-ness. 

Here is a closer peek: I used the Best in the World stamp set for the sentiment that I die cut with the Stitched Bracket Stacklets

Card ingredients:
Stamp set: Best in the World (Taylored Expressions)
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa
Cardstock: Salt Water Taffy, Kraft, Sugar Cube, Poppy Seed
Taylored Dies and Embossing Folder: Block Party – Dad, Skinny Mini Party Borders, Stitched Bracket Stacklets, Woodgrain Embossing Folder,
Accessories: Best Glue Ever, Foam Dimensional Tape, Sponger

I love how this turned out! For my second project, I used the new die: Tagging Along to create a favor using the Little Bits - Nailpolish die. I LOVE this new way to make a Party Favor - and perfect for holding some little treats or gifts! I used the Toe-Tally Awesome stamp set for the sentiment to go with the Little-Bits Nailpolish. This would be so fantastic for a birthday party favor!

Here is a close up of this project: I used the Tag Stacklets 1 to add layers of color and then some stickles to the nail polish for a little bit of glitter - love how this turned out!
