New Over the Moon Kit from TE!

Taylored Expressions has a new Cardmaking Kit in town and it just might be out of this world–aka Over the Moon! ๐Ÿ™‚

The kit comes with these great sentiments and the Copper Star Shaker bits–not to mention there FABULOUS envelopes! eeek!

I started out using the Foil It-Over the Moon Panels (which can be purchased separately if you are a foiler. They are funnnnnnn! I foiled one in rainbow and one in silver.

I think I might favor the rainbow one? Hmmmmm ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s a better pic of the rainbow one. That foiling though–so hard to capture in still photos.

I Silver Heat embossed the sentiments on Blue Corn and cut them out with the die in the kit. They are a little shiny when you see them in person. I tucked in some Easy Strips cut out of Sugar Cube behind them, to give them a little “lift” on the card front.

I used TE’s Silver Cardstock for the back panel and also used it to die cut out the stars that are also in the kit. All this shimmer sham!! ๐Ÿ™‚

This one turned out fun for sure!

Next up, I decided to shake things up a bit! I created a shaker card using the bits included in the card kit as well as adding some additional Snow Flurries and Bits & Pieces Sparkly Stars.

If you run the Moon Die back through your die cut machine with an Embossing Pad, you’ll get this great little texture on your Moon.

I added the die cut start to this one too cut out of the same Sea Salt Cardstock. I love that the panels are Blue Corn and foil-able! ๐Ÿ™‚

I die cut out the Sea Salt panel with the Petite Scallop Rectangle Stacklets. Added some stitching and this one is ready to go–Over the Moon!

Here’s the scoop from TE:

Our Over the Moon Kit retails for $68, comes in a zippered pouch with a custom sticker, and includes:

  • Clearly Crafty Over the Moon stamp set
  • Over the Moon die collection

  • Mini Pot of Rose Gold Stars
  • A2 Envelope Pack (6 envelopes, 2 each of: Blue Corn, Rose Gold Sparkle, and Metallic Silver)

Most items are not available to purchase individually.ย You will be able to purchase additional envelope seals (pack of 10), Foil It โ€“ Over the Moon panels (pack of 12), and Rose Gold foil cardstock separately from the kit.

The vast majority of the individual items included in our cardmaking kits will not be available to purchase individually in the future. While we may, on rare occasions, release a kit item into our regular inventory at a later time, this will no longer be an option for the majority of the products. Instead, they will remain exclusive to the kits and may only be purchased as part of a kit while supplies last.

Since our curated cardmaking kits can sell out quickly, we encourage you to purchase the kits you love when they are released, as they will not be restocked once they have sold out. We intend to release a kit the last Tuesday of each month at 9am (Central), and a sneak preview will be posted on the TE Blog on the Saturday prior to the release.

To be notified of new kit releases, be sure to subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on Facebook and Instagram! Stay tuned for another fabulous kit next month!

Grad/Congrats Release from TE!

Hello all! It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? Phew!

Taylored Expressions has a New Release today that includes products for celebrating GRADUATES and includes many things to celebrate accomplishments, birthdays, “way to go” etc etc. One of the most exciting things is there is a new Create-In-Quads stencil set! Score! ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s get this party started with the Create-In-Quads: Hooray set, shall we?

You can use the Create in Quads Cardstock to create (4) A2 size card creations. It works swimmingly–I prefer it to a full sheet just for ease. ๐Ÿ˜‰

For my cards, I leaned in on the celebrate side of things vs. several graduation cards. I like the idea of having happy Congrats cards ready to go and Celebrate!

I stenciled all the card panels first, and then die cut the You Did It from the first one. I added some fun foam underneath to give it a little oomph and then pieced the letters back on top. I love when there are bold word diesย  to use for this technique! ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s a party, for sure!! You Did It!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Next here is a grad one for sure! ๐Ÿ™‚ These products are great because you can customize them to the graduates school colors, but I thought it would be fun to just do bright colors as well. Sometimes you don’t know the colors you need or you have several grads to celebrate, all graduating from different institutions. The 2022 is a pre cut Die Cut and those come in Silver and Oreo. So snag a pack of those and be ready to go!

I love this banner one too! You’re a Star is from the High Five sentiment set. I heat embossed that on Blueberry and added a Simple Strip from the original Simple Strips Background.

I super enjoy how these banners turned out and truth be told, I was trying for this effect, but somehow, it came out that way and now I will!ย  Ha! ๐Ÿ™‚

I finished it off with the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets set and the Petite Scallop Rectangle Set, to cut the panels. Some stitching and some Clear Drip Drops and it’s a party for sure!

This last card includes the All You Need stamp and it’s a good one. While it is perfect for Grads, I think this can be used anytime as a card of encouragement too.

I love the star border and I just added a few splatters to “festive it up” even more!

Next up, I created an Infinite Shaker card with the Infinite Shaker panels and the You Did It layering stencil. I simply masked off the letters as I ink blended TE Inks on in different colors!

Of course, I had to add alllllllllllll the bits in. I had just a smattering of the Confetti Clay Dots left so I snuck those in too. ๐Ÿ™‚

This card is definitely a PARTY!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Last up, is the Bokeh Star Background and this is a fun one for sure… I did the lowest layer in Sugar Cube and Sea Salt Ink to create a bokeh look in the end. I love these stencil sets. You can create such subtle layers that are fun for effect. They might show up better in person vs. in the photos? ๐Ÿ™‚

I used the Sea Salt cardstock for this one and it turned out great! These are so fun to blend together.

I finished this one with the Frame in Frame 2 die and the One the Block-Happy with a Simple Strip from the Simple Strips-Birthday set. The die cut stars are from the Gathered Stars die–alllll the sizes. I need to get this Bokeh Stars stencil set out and just make backgrounds to have on the ready. ๐Ÿ™‚ So many uses!

Here’s the scoop from TE:

Right now through Sunday, April 24th, when you make any purchase of $75 or more you will receive the Congrats Script die FREE! Itโ€™s the perfect sentiment for any card that you create to celebrate a special event or achievement.ย Offer valid while supplies last.

All these products are available now over at Taylored Expressions. See my links belowย  ๐Ÿ™‚
