Taylored Expressions September Previews – Day 1 B is for Birthday

Hi everyone! It’s the first day of Taylored Expressions‘ September 7 release previews! It’s also TE’s NINTH birthday, so there’s a lot of partying going on. Be sure to read to the end and also check out all party details on the TE Blog.

My first card today features new Simply Said Birthday, Free Fall Background, Number Balloons and Balloon Strings dies.

I first sponged my background using Lemon Meringue, Candy Corn and Lollipop inks. Then I used Sugar Cube pigment ink to stamp Free Fall Background.

To create the super sparkly balloons, I adhered Sugar Cube and Lemon Meringue card stock to an X-Press It Double-sided Adhesive Sheet.  Laying the dies on the adhesive side, I die-cut the numbers, removed the release sheet to reveal the super sticky adhesive, then dumped glitter over top. I pressed a bit with my fingers to ensure the pieces were covered with glitter then tapped off the excess.

Next, I created a fun shaker birthday card using new B is for Birthday.

I stamped the image onto white card stock then colored with Copic markers and added dots using Copic’s Opaque White. I double-stacked a border of foam tape and sprinkled inside some Queen & Company Fimo Fun and Sprinkles toppings.

After adhering the acetate cover, I adhered a frame cut from Rainbow Brights patterned paper then added a couple flags and Enamel Shapes.
