Taylored Expressions: February Release!

Welcome to Release Day for Taylored Expressions February Release! Are you ready for some cuteness? I am!!

My first card here features the NEW Cutting Edge – Spring cuties, all Copic  colored and die cut out. And then STACKED!! I mean, really–who doesn’t love a cute stack, with them all peeping out of these little port holes?!

I used the new Peaches n’ Cream again–I told you it is my new favorite–shhhh! 😉

Goodness me, too cute! For the background on the panel there, I used the new Folk Art Tulip stencil.

Next up, this adorable little set that is fantastic to share with kids or just keep to yourself. wink wink. It’s called Inky Fingers, and it is super sweet! ❤

Those bunny ears though!! 🙂 I used my fingers to stamp each little body there and filled in the little ears and rays with Copic Markers afterward.

I popped them all into these sweet little Hinged Insta-Frames and made them each shine on their own. I also used the NEW Backstory – Easter Background stamp for the card panel, stamped in Mint.

And as a little something extra special (to me, the completely biased writer here): Here is a sweet little card my son made! Here’s the in progress photo…I’d have cleaned up my desk mat there if I knew we were going to be taking photos and this video to share! It was very impromptu cardmaking here! Ha!

Always picks Candy Corn because it is Orange and it is called Candy Corn! 🙂 He wanted to make a heart of hearts–that is what all those little pictures are. ❤ Just melts me!

I even have a little video of fast motion if you’d like to watch? Here you go:

My hubby took his new card to work–how sweet is all this! ❤ Makes my heart so happy! It’s love inside love inside love! 🙂

Taylored Expressions Release Week: Day 3

Welcome to Day Three of Taylored Expressions February Sneak Peek Week! If you missed my other two posts earlier this week,  I’ll link you up down below. 🙂

Today, I am sharing two cards –the first is showcasing the forthcoming No Drama Llama and Whole Llama Love & the sombrero from Can’t Touch This die set. Such a hoot!!

Urban sombrero anyone? Haaaaa!! 🙂 Stay Weird– ❤ ! Oh and I used all three of the NEW colors!! Peaches n’ Cream, Raspberry Sorbet, and Spearmint! My favorite is the Peaches n’ Cream…but don’t tell the Sorbet. 😉

He is alllll decked out!! I also used the new Geo Quad Background for the llama’s backdrop–stamped in Spearmint. I’m loving this background stamp–use a little or a lot!

Next up, I have this super cutie card using the new Look Who’s Talking. I just squeak every time I see these  cute little bears! 🙂

Eeep! Look at them peeking out! I can’t handle the cuteness!! For this background, I used the new Double Diamond stencil with Cupcake ink. Just loving that little bit of somethin’ somethin’ back there. ❤

Gah! ❤

Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks: Day 2

Welcome back to Day Two of Taylored Expressions February Release Week! If you missed my post yesterday sharing day one, I’ll link you up down below. 🙂

This first card is a blended, bright celebration using the forthcoming Third Day Border die and Inside Scoop-Easter Blessings. I blended inks on and wanted to keep it fairly simple from there.

I used the previously released Here Comes the Sun stencil on the inside of the card. I think it is the perfect touch!

The next card here, I used the new Pretty Posies stamp and the Words of Faith Easter sentiment. I so enjoy the lovely Pretty Posies frame. You must check out what the rest of the TE Team made, because they made BEAUTIFUL cards with it! 🙂

Again, I went with a simple design to showcase these sentiments. The Posies are white heat embossed and I am always a fan of that on the Toffee. 🙂

On the inside, I again used a stencil to add a little extra touch. This stencil is the forthcoming Folk Art Tulip. I just blended on some Toffee ink lightly.

Lovely cards to celebrate the Easter season. ❤

Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks! Day 1

Hello! Are you ready for Taylored Expressions new February Release?! I am!! 🙂

For these first cards, I used the new Hip Hop Bunny with the Triangle Toss Stencil. This little dude is a new favorite of mine–look at that face!! Hilarious! ❤

And the sentiment is just the end all be all with that face! Haaaaaa!! Love it! I used purple–just wanted to add that little note, because I am not a purple person. LOL! 🙂

Goodness, this cracks me up! This stencil is the perfect backdrop for him and I thought it fun to use the rays to spray the confetti out. I just layered the stencils to get the effect. 😉

The next card I made with the new Stacked Seasons Background. I enjoy this so much, especially after the bitter cold days we just experienced.

I stamped this one with Oreo ink and colored it all in with Copic Markers. Look at those cuties peeking out. 😉

I colored both of these cards with Copic Markers on Sugar Cube and added some stitching to finish them both off.

A Sweet Little Set!

Hello crafty friends–today, I’m sharing a cutie lil’ Taylored Expressions set of note cards and envelopes to send . 🙂 Just yesterday, I was able to take full advantage of a snow day and get many handmade cards ready to send to friends and family. It is something that always lifts my mood. 🙂

I hope you have found some inspiration over on the Taylored Expressions blog this past week with all the great sets the Creative Team has made–I have for sure! 🙂

I used TE’s Give Me a Sign set for these cute little critters. I simply cut up some cardstock strips to add a little color behind the sweet tags.

I added a smidge of Glossy Accents to each to make their cute noses.

For the envelopes, I used the recently released Mini Mail. I colored them simply with colored pencils.

This little fox might be my favorite. ❤

Or maybe this cutie giraffe? Ha! 🙂 Who am I kidding, I think they are all adorable! I also like that you can switch up the critters and sentiments–so many possibilities!

Give me a tag and some kraft cardstock, and I could be set for a long while. 🙂

Because these little guys are not too large, they are easily colored quickly with Copic Markers.

I also used a little quick stencil work on the envelopes for fun.

I think they all came together for a sweet little set, ready to address and send! 🙂

I stamped these all with Oreo ink and colored them in with Copic Markers. I die cut and scored the card panels with the strips of cardstock, adding the sweet tags on top with some twine.

Also, one other fun little tidbit, before I share my supplies… An opportunity to order a personalized stamp for all the projects you put so much love into! ❤

There is a TE Pop Up shop where you can order your own personalized stamp? I was so excited to be gifted this one from TE. I am thinking I might need to order another… wink wink. 🙂

The Personalized Pop-Up Shop goes through this Sunday, February 3rd, so make sure to order your own today! There are 4 different designs to choose from and you can customize the stamp with your name, website, etc. Click here to get more details and to order your stamp today!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you are inspired to make a handful of cards and send them out to brighten the mailboxes of your friends and family as well.

Love Ya Bunches

Happy Monday! We received quite a lot of snow this past weekend! I thought I’d pop in here and shake it up a bit with a  Taylored Expressions card!

The only thing better than a shaker card is a rainbow shaker card!! Love these little shaker bits from TE…they are called Hello Sunshine Shaker Filling–too fun!!

By Us As Us

Hola! I thought I’d pop in with a quick post sharing a cutie lil’ Taylored Expressions card!

I just get such a kick out of so many TE sentiments and I want to use THEM ALL at once! Ha!! 🙂

Too funny right? I know I have some friends like this, and we can carry on and laugh hysterically to ourselves about nonsense. ❤  

Sarcasti-chick is a hoot! And I super love these little Punny Notes Valentine critters! I stamped these with Oreo ink and colored them in with Copic Markers, and die cut them out. After I stenciled the die cut card panel, I added some stitching, popped the little critters on the card and added their frames. In the final second, I threw a little tiny felt heart on there at the bottom to button it all up. Too cute! 🙂
