Taylored Expressions March Sneak Peeks: This Is My Happy Face


Hello! It's Day 2 of Sneak Peeks from Taylored Expressions, and all of the fab new products will be available on Thursday, March 9th at 7 AM PDT!

For my first card today, I used the new addition to the Door to Door series called Door to Door 2 along with the new Door to Door Sentiments Stamp Set! I am loving the new door! Those awesome windows at the top and the molding AND it even comes with a hinge piece so you can swing the door open like this:


I started by cutting the background out of Buttercream Icing cs and embossing with the Brick Embossing Folder. I then used a Clarity Stencil Brush to brush Pumpkin and Mulled Wine Ink over the brick. I cut my door out of Oreo cs and then added some Vellum behind the windows. I then cut my hinge piece and adhered it to the back of the door, and cut the door out once again to adhere to the back of the door for a cleaner look. 

For the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Door to Door Sentiments with Oreo Ink onto some Potato Chip cs. I cut it out using a Stitched Rectangle Stacklets Die, and made a frame for it by using 2 more Stitched Rectangle Dies and some Oreo cs. To keep the door closed, I added a small strip of Velcro.


For my accessories, I used the steps from Door to Door, the wreath and bushes from Door to Door Décor, the bow and planters from Door to Door Spring Décor, and the little bird was cut using the Little Bits Birds Die and the grass using the Wispy Grass Border Die. I just love mixing and matching all these fun sets!





For my next card I used the hilarious new Grouchy Grumplings 2 Stamp Set along with the Grouchy Grumplings 2 Dies. I started by cutting a piece of Salt Water Taffy cs and embossing with the Winter Flurry Embossing Folder. I then added the hills that I cut using the Build a Scene Rolling Hills Dies out of Sugar Cube cs.


I stamped the cute penguin using Oreo Ink and colored with Copics before cutting him out with the coordinating Grouchy Grumplings 2 Die. I popped him up with foam tape over the snowy hills and then added a few more snowflakes that I cut with the Little Bits Snowflake Confetti Die. Finally, I stamped a sentiment from the set with Oreo Ink and cut it out with a Stitched Banner Stacklets Die. I cut another banner to layer behind and then added a few Salt Water Taffy and Sugar Cube Enamel Shapes to complete. So fun!
