TE May Sneak Peeks Day 3: The Best Dad I Ever Saw

The Best Dad I Ever Saw by Jen Shults

Hi everyone! Today is day 3 of Taylored Expressions May Sneak Peeks! Today I have two projects to share with you!

My first project uses some new TE Little Bits! Little Bits – Tools. I paired these up with the Matchbox dies and Matchbox – Suitcase dies to make a little mini toolbox.

To make this toolbox I die cut two of the Matchbox’s from Watermelon cardstock and adhered them together, one sitting on top of the other.

I used the Matchbox suitcase dies to create the toolbox handle and the stripes on the front of the toolbox to look like drawers. I used Oreo and Silver Metallic Cardstock layered together to create the look of the drawers. On the inside of the drawers I lined the bottom with Oreo cardstock to mimic the black mats in the toolbox drawers. In the top drawer I adhered a variety of cuts of tools. In the bottom drawer I stamped Best Dad I Ever Saw from Punny Man and embossed it in silver embossing powder. I adhered the saw from Little Bits Tools under the sentiment.

My husband loves these little Matchboxes and he thought this one was amazing! 🙂

For my second card I’m using a new addition to the Build a Scene line – Build a Scene Grassy Hills. These are so fun and give a nice bit of texture to layered scenes. I started with a Blue Corn cardbase and sponged a piece of Sugar Cube cardstock with the ground and the sky. I layered this with three cuts of Build a Scene Grassy Hills in Granny Smith and Peapod. I die cut the cut new Little Bits – Hole in One dies to make the golf course.

The clouds were die cut from Sugar Cube using the Build a Scene – Rolling Clouds dies and the sentiment was stamped on Watermelon cardstock and embossed in white then die cut with Banner Stacklets 4.
