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.

Technique Tuesday February Release!

Technique Tuesday has a new release for February–yay!! Technique Tuesday’s new release to be to be available HERE!

For this card, I used the new Technique Tuesday set, Kind Cosmo and the new Oval and Rectangle Stitched Labels. I think this new flower is lovely and sweet!

For this card, I stamped the labels and then masked them off before stamping the flowers on the inside. I like the fine line work on the flowers, and I always like stamping them with ink without coloring them in.

I think this turned out fun and it’ll be a great card to send to a friend! 🙂

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!
