Welcome to the third day of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions. I have a couple of projects to share today that I am very excited about. So what do cows and sparklers have in common? Not much, but I did use both of them on my projects today! So scroll down and check ‘em out! :)

For my first project today I used the new Green Acres stamp set and made four gift tags! Green Acres was illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink line and includes 24 stamps. It is a full sized set on a 5.75" x 8.5" full color sturdy storage panel and like all TE stamps this set is made from top-quality deeply etched rubber in a cute shade of pink and comes on EZ Mount already trimmed and ready to be used with your acrylic blocks.
I LOVE this set! It has oodles of fun farm images and includes super fun coordinating punny sentiments for lots of occasions. For my tags I went a bit generic and just went with Congratulations. However I did use the “Party til the cows come home!” sentiment on the back of the tags. Thus the cows on the front of the tags. How does a cow say congratulations? Moola, of course! Groan… I know that was terrible. But I do now have an idea for a gift card or money holder. :)
I also used the brand spanking new Chicken Wire / Wood Grain Impression Plate. Swoon! Seriously, I did the happy dance when I saw this plate! One side is Chicken Wire and the other is Wood Grain. Of course I then covered up most of it with embellishments but it is there. ;)
Finished tag size is 2.5” (plus the overhang from the banner) wide by 3.5” wide.
My second card uses another of the new Penguin Petite stamp sets illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink line. This one is called Uncle Sam and includes five stamps on a 3" x 5.5" full color sturdy storage panel.
I went full on red, white and blue for my card. That is not an easy color combo for me (one two many primary colors) but I really like how it turned out! I did add a bit of glitter and a rhinestone to the sparkler.
