Happy Wednesday to you all! Today, I am popping in with something fun to share. 🙂 A few friends and I decided we wanted to use our Taylored Expressions Stamp Joy gifts to make Gift Sets for giving this holiday season. So we decided to do it together and set a date to share! Today is the day 🙂 I’m also sharing some fun news here at the end…
If you have never experienced Taylored Expressions Stamp Joy, I truly cannot recommend it enough. In normal years, it is held in October in Iowa, in person and it is a fun filled couple days of classes, crafting, shopping, eating and prizes. So. Much. Fun. Of course, this past Fall, in the not normal, TE Stamp Joy was held online and it was a great success. The bonus was: If you cannot normally travel to Iowa to join the fun, this was a great opportunity!
The fun part is, when you sign up, you get a goodie bag and these were a part of that: Full of Flowers, Clear and Cling Combo, Coordinating stencils and Full of Flowers Singles. I was happy to finally ink them up. ❤
For my cards, I used mostly the Full of Flowers; Clear and Cling Combo and Coordinating stencils. I stamped the background in Mushroom on two and in Toffee on two. For the lighter card, I used the following ink colors: Peaches n Cream, Lemon, Confetti Cake, Spearmint and Mint Julep. (The light two ended up being my faves.) The darker ones, I used: Sweet Potato Pie, Pineapple, Gumball, Sweet Basil and Granny Smith.
For all the sentiments, I used Simple Strips that I had already stamped and embossed. I also used the Simple Strips backer strips for each in Toffee.
I made this set for a friend, and I am thinking she will love having them to send. Fingers crossed. 🙂
I added stitching to each SS Backer Strip before putting on the Simple Strips with TE Foam Strips.
I thought I’d use a mixture of sentiments for various occasions too. They came together lovely and quick using the stencils to blend on the different colored inks with the TE Blender Brushes.
I was trying to catch the daylight so please forgive me for not mixing up the order to show the different cards. This is what happens when you are rushing. 😉
I want to give this as a gift, so I used one of the TE Clear Card Boxes to tuck them all into with Toffee Envelopes and Envelope Seals. I also created a tag using the Tag Stacklets 2 and one of the sentiments from the Full of Flowers Singles.
Here’s a view of the side. I just alternated stacking the cards, to have them fit better inside the box.
And here is a quick pic of the back, with the envelope seals from the Field Notes release. ❤
I’m hoping this card set will be well loved and used. 🙂
You can find the TE goodies I used (excluding the Exclusive Stamp Joy stamps/stencils) in the Taylored Expressions Shop HERE.
