TE Quad Colors Continued!

Hello and welcome back to a fun week over at Taylored Expressions! I hope you have enjoyed the idea of mixing up your color choices and maybe even enjoyed playing along this week already? The TE Creative Team has really wow’d me (again!) with the Quad Colors projects! Here are all the colors below. Be sure to check out all the news over on the TE Blog and see more cards!

Today, I will start out with the Quad Color called Sahara.

I created a background with two Masking Stencils using this combo–and I LOVE how easy it was with the TE Blender Brushes….he turned out well with guessing my appropriate Copic markers. Who knew? The stripes are the absolute best paired with a rectangle– <3!

Of course, it’s no secret I love the Grumplings and this one is Big Grumpy Cat! He’s so ornery and actually this card is WAY too fitting for this time in our world, unfortunately. But introverts unite, nonetheless. ๐Ÿ™‚ I colored him with Copic Markers and it turned out (surprisingly… shhhh) well for this color combo.

Next up, I have the Quad Color Barcelona:

One of my go-to cardmaking techniques is always strips of paper all stacked together. The result is always delightful to me. So when I saw this combo, that was my first idea. I thought this card would be great for a graduate–especially a pre-school or elementary school one. ๐Ÿ™‚

For this card the coverplate I used is Alphabet Soup–definitely a favorite coverplate when it comes to making anything for school or kids. I just adore the font. I added some stitching and put it all on a card base. Such fun!

Taylored Expressions February Release: 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

This first card features a new stamp: In the Meadow. This lovely floral stamp can be used for so many occasions and so many different ways. I can think of so many ways to stamp it already! I paired it with the Handlettered Sympathy sentiments. These stamped sentiments make these difficult cards say the heartfelt things we feel. (There is also a coordinating die to die cut these Handlettered Sympathy sentiments out.)

I stamped this with Blue Corn ink to create the silhouette flower part and sentiment and then blended on lots of TE inks with the TE Blender Brushes. It’s so lovely how they always blend out so quickly and smoothly! ๐Ÿ™‚

Next up, I have another card using Handlettered Sympathy and the new Botanical Beauty Background. Another floral stamp that is so easy to use for so many occasions and quickly or you can color it all in. The TE Creative Team made AMAZING cards coloring this lovely stamp in. You must check them out over at Taylored Expressions–jaw dropping gorgeous work! I’m telling you!

Because my Copic coloring skills are not as amazing ๐Ÿ˜‰ , I thought to try this one embossed with some TE Watercolor. I love how it turned out and these colors blended beautifully together in watercolor as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

Taylored Expressions January Release: Day 2

Welcome back to Day Two of Taylored Expressions January Release Week! If you missed my post yesterday sharing day one, I’ll link you up down below. ๐Ÿ™‚

This first card features a new stamp and die: Big Grumpy Cat. Ok–this sentiment is absolutely HILARIOUS to me!!! Bwaaahaaaaha!!! Just when Big Grumpy Cat cannot be funnier, he so is! ๐Ÿ™‚

I colored him with Copic markers and heat embossed the Shiplap Background before creating a little window behind him that I scored for some more texture back there. I also added these new bits from TE! ๐Ÿ™‚

Next up, I have another little laugh!! If you can’t tell, I love making and sending funny cards. Laughter is so good for you! ๐Ÿ™‚ This is the new Sarcasti-CHUCK!!! And check out his clothes–those are Sarcasti-CHUCK’s Wardrobe! Haaaa! What a dresser he is, don’t you think?

I colored everything with Copics before adhering all together and to the card front with foam adhesive. That sentiment is just so funny and I am so using that on my husband’s Valentine this year! ๐Ÿ™‚
