Taylored Expressions Day 2 of Sneak Peek Week...Help, from our table to yours

Happy Tuesday Taylored Expression Friends,

Did you get a chance to share in yesterday's birthday celebration? If yes, AWESOME! If no, there is still time to participate and win some fabulous birthday presents!

Today, I am sharing with you a few cards that celebrate the upcoming fall season. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. And if it yours, too, then these stamps and dies will put you in the mood. Today's card features TE's latest Little Bits - Turkey Dinner and Pumpkin Pie dies.

Okay, let me write, I love funny cards. When I saw the Little Bits - Turkey Dinner die, I just knew it was begging to be designed for a humorous card. Enter the Little Bits - Turkey. Can you just imagine a turkey looking around during Thanksgiving season and wanting to run in the opposite direction? I used the Mini Color Block Cutting Plate to help me create the story for this card. The background was created using the Distress Oxides: Fired Brick, Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade. I then went about die cutting a mini vignette for each block...silverware, speech bubble, and Thanksgiving dinner. Once die cutting was completed, it was time to stamp my sentiment and add the turkey.

Card number two features the new Simply Stamped Acorns, which pair beautifully with Simply Stamped Leaves.

To create this card, I used TE's newest ink, Mocha go achieve the rich, dark brown and paired this with Chocolate Truffle and Toffee for my acorns. The leaves were a variety of TE inks and blended beautifully with each other. My favorite combination was the Plum Punch, Mulled Wine and Cupcake. The background for the A2 card is a gold heat embossed image using the new Autumn Leaves Background stamp. An embossed sentiment from the Simply Said-Thanks stamp set and gold ribbon complete this card.
