Taylored Expressions June Key Ingredients Kit Release & Special Offer!

It's Key Ingredients time over at Taylored Expressions, and Taylor has some exciting news for current & new kit subscribers! I'll get to that in a bit, but first let me share a few things I made with my June Kit. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE me some Key Ingredients kits. It's something I look forward to every month. The kits are each filled with paper and ribbon and enough embellishments to make a ton of cards and have pieces to spare. My creative juices always get to flowing as soon as one of these kits show up. One of the best parts of the kit (other than all of the fun goodies inside and all the potential to get me creating like a mad lady), is that as a subscriber you get a special 10% discount along with free shipping once a month. Who doesn't love discounts and free shipping?!

We were challenged this month to come up with our own flower embellishments, and as you can tell I went a little crazy with my 3 cards :} This first card shows some of the paper embellishments that come in the June kit. There are buttons and ribbon, and those yummy paper flowers & stems. I used my Branching Out set for the sentiment and the clouds are from the Branching Out Coordinates.
Stamps: Branching Out & Branching Out Coordinates
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tea Stain Distress Ink
Paper: June KI Kit
Accessories: June KI Kit, sponge, window punch

As you can see, all you need to add is a set (if you want) and some tape & ink. Everything else is provided for you to make what you need!

My next card uses the Downtown Diva set. This time I used a punch, an embossing folder, and some sponging, and voila!
I used some of the patterned paper in the set to make my flower, and it was such an easy way to make my own embellishment.
Stamps: Downtown Diva
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tea Stain Distress Ink, Baja Breeze
Paper: June KI Kit
Accessories: June KI Kit, flower punch (SU), sponge, D'Vine Swirls & Swiss Dots embossing folders, Copics

My last card uses the same set: Downtown Diva. This time to make my flower I used one of the patterns in the dp and cut around it to make my flower. I sponged up the flower and added some stickles to the flowers on the dp.
Stamps: Downtown Diva
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Paper: June KI Kit
Accessories: June KI Kit, sponge, Cuttlebug tags, Xmas Red Stickles, dimensionals

In closing, I'm a HUGE fan of the TE Key Ingredients Kits. They are often a 'go to' staple for my crafting, and I know that without fail it will show up on my doorstep around the same time every month. That AND I get a 10% discount with free shipping during that time of the month every month too!

As if you were enticed enough, Taylor is offering up a deal that you just can't refuse. Here's the PROMOTION:

"Any new or current subscriber who purchases or extends a subscription for 6 months between June 15th - 19th will receive a FREE Taylored Expressions stamp set (designed by Taylor herself!) upon completion of the 6 month term."
