Taylored Expressions April Release Day: Celebrating You

10:00 AM 0 Comments

Hello! It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions, which means that all of the new products are available NOW in the TE Store!

I have a couple more cards to share with you today, the first using the beautiful new Simply Stamped Butterflies Stamp Set and the coordinating Simply Stamped Butterflies Dies. I stamped the butterflies using Candy Corn and Pumpkin Ink and cut the out with the coordinating die. I then used the dies to cut the antennae out of Earl Grey cs. The flower was cut using the Full Bloom Die and the sentiment was stamped directly onto my Sugar Cube cs using Oreo Ink. Such a simple card but I just love how it came out!

For my next card I used the new Mini Bloomers 2 Dies along with the new Quatrefoil Embossing Folder and the new Simply Said-Mom Stamp Set.

I cut my flowers out of Lollipop, Strawberry Milkshake, Jelly Donut, Lavender Glaze, Sprinkles, and Lemon Meringue cs. I then cut the greenery using the Bloomers Greenery Dies and some Granny Smith cs. The vase was cut using a Various Vases Die and some Strawberry Milkshake cs.

I layered my flowers over some Rainbow Brights dp and framed them with a Stitched Frame Stacklets Die that I cut out of Jelly Donut cs. I then layered that over some Lavender Glaze cs that I embossed with the Quatrefoil Embossing Folder. The sentiment is from the Simply Said-Mom Stamp Set and cut out with a Stitched Banner Stacklets Die. So pretty!

Taylored Expressions April Sneak Peeks: Congrats, Graduate!

10:00 AM 0 Comments

Hello! It's Day 3 of Sneak Peeks from Taylored Expressions, and all of the new products will be available tomorrow, April 6th at 7 AM PST!

For my first peek today, I used an ADORABLE new graduation stamp set called Matchy Matchy Grad Stamp & Die Combo. This set works great with the Matchbox Die Set because this darling owl and the sentiments that come with the set will work inside or outside the Matchbox. I also used the fab new Matchbox Accessories-Suitcase Die Set to turn my matchbox into this super cool suitcase!

The suitcase works perfectly with this sentiment. I cut my matchbox out of Toffee cs and used Chocolate Truffle cs for the suitcase accents. I then sponged the edges with Toffee Ink. The owl and sentiment were stamped with Oreo Ink and the Owl colored with Copic Markers. I lined the inside with some Rainbow Brights dp and cut the scalloped frame that comes with the Matchbox Die Set out of Cookie Monster cs. So super CUTE!

For my next card, I used the super sweet new Little Bits Owl Die along with the new Simply Said Grad Stamp Set. I also added the grad cap using the Little Bits Hats Off Die. I started by making the sky using the Build a Scene Rolling Clouds Dies, some Sprinkles Ink, and a Clarity Stencil Brush. I used the On a Limb Branches, and On a Limb Leaves Dies along with Chocolate Truffle, Granny Smith, and Peapod cs for the branch.

The grass was cut out of Peapod cs using the Wispy Grass Border Die and the sun was cut out of Buttercream Frosting cs using the Build a Scene Sunshine Die and sponged with Lemon Meringue Ink. I framed the scene using a Stitched Frame Stacklets Die and some Sprinkles cs. Such a bright and happy grad card:)
