TE February Sneak Peeks: Thank You For Your Kindness


Hello! It's Day 1 of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions, and all of the new products will be available on Thursday, February 9th at 7AM PDT.

For my first card today, I used this pretty new set called Rainboot Bouquet. I stamped this sweet image using Oreo ink onto some Sugar Cube cs. I paper pieced the boots using some dp from the TE Rainbow Brights 6x6 Paper Pack and used Copic Markers to color the rest of the image. I used the coordinating Rainboot Bouquet Die to cut out my image.

For the background, I started by using the Build a Scene Rolling Clouds Dies along with some Sprinkles Ink and a Clarity Stencil Brush to color my sky. I then used some Potato Chip Ink and another Clarity Stencil Brush to lightly color the ground. I embossed the panel with the Prairie Embossing Folder and then added my sentiment to the upper right corner using Oreo Ink and the Mini Misti to help me align my sentiment.




For my second card, I used the new Spring Florals Stamp Set along with the coordinating Spring Florals Die Set:


I stamped the wreath image from the set with Granny Smith Ink and then used the smaller flowers in the set to decorate the wreath. The flowers were stamped with Strawberry Milkshake, Sprinkles, Lemon Meringue, and Jelly Donut Ink. I added the green centers to the flowers using the new TE Enamel Shapes in Granny Smith-so fun!

The background was created using the new Lattice Frame Cutting Plate-LOVE! I cut out a piece of Sugar Cube cs and then layered it over some Sprinkles cs. I then used one of the oval frames included with the Lattice Frame Cutting Plate to cut a piece of dp from the TE Rainbow Brights 6x6 Paper Pack. I popped my wreath up over the dp and added the sentiment that I cut out using a Stitched Banner Stacklets Die. Finally, I added the sweet tulips to the corner that I stamped with Lemon Meringue Ink and Granny Smith Ink, and cut out with the coordinating Spring Florals Dies.
