Your Next Stamp Sketch and Color Challenge #97!

12:00 AM 0 Comments

Hello! I wanted to share the card I made for the current YNS Challenge #97! I used both the sketch and colors for my card today:




I started by stamping my bee from the Bugs & Kisses Stamp Set with YNS Black Olive Ink and coloring with Copic Markers. I then cut him out with the coordinating Bugs & Kisses Die. I used some watercolors to splatter my background and then adhered the honeycomb cut with the YNS Honeycomb Die Set. I heat embossed the sentiment and popped it up with foam tape.

For the honey drip at the top of the card, I used the YNS Honey Drip and Honeycomb Combo Die Set. I cut a piece of cs and then used that as my pattern to stencil the honey drip using Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink. Finally, I added some Lavender Gumdrops and it was complete!

Taylored Expressions 10th Birthday Blog Hop!

10:00 AM 2 Comments

Hello! I'm super excited to be part of this TE designer reunion blog hop today to help TE celebrate 10 years!!! I spent 5 years on the TE design team, so TE was definitely a big part of my life for a long time:) You can head over to Taylor's Blog to see a full list of participants which includes almost 40 designers!

There were some new products released last night which you can find HERE but today we are showcasing some older products that are still so much fun!


I chose to use the adorable Monkey Business Stamp & Die Combo for my fun images. I stamped them with TE Oreo Ink and colored with Copic Markers.

To create my scene, I started by using the TE Mosaic Leaves Stencil to sponge the background. I used Cracked PistachioLucky Clover, and Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink to obtain the different shades. I then used the TE Build a Scene Tropical Dies for my palm trees, and the TE Wispy Grass Border Die for the ground. So cute!

At the heart of Taylored Expressions is a mission to share joy through the gift of handmade cards. As part of their 10th birthday TE is continuing that mission with the launch of a special Share Joy campaign focused on providing birthday cards to those in nursing homes and assisted-living facilities across the U.S. To make as deep an impact as possible TE is inviting card makers everywhere to join the campaign. Will you join us? Find out how to participate by viewing their Share Joy page here: https://www.tayloredexpressions.com/share-joy-birthday-2018
