ALL the Rainbows from Taylored Expressions

Oh it’s another day of colorful FUN over at Taylored Expressions! RAINBOWS and much more!!!! All the fun is available over at Taylored Expressions Today, July 7th right HERE!!

A whole lot of sweetness, that’s for sure! Some of the newly available products are from the previously released Somewhere Over the Rainbow Kit. You can see more cards ideas in my post for that HERE. Others are being released for the first time. 🙂 And oh boy, are they cute!

For these first two cards, they are using all the same products and colors, but isn’t it amazing that they look quite different? Or is that just me?

This is the Over the Rainbow Die, Rainbow Cloud Duo and Over the Rainbow stamp set.

This one is a little different order and I love it!

For these cards, I embossed the  background with TE’s Cloudy Days Embossing folder and then inlaid the felt die cuts. I added some stitching to finish them off.

These clouds are the perfect finishing touch. There are two cloud dies in the kit. One is simple and the other has the little pierced dots on it. The dots don’t show up on felt of course, but on cardstock, they are a great detail!

I do love the TE Wool Felt! It cuts like butta in a die cut machine, just in case you haven’t ever tried it.

Next up, I am using this super sweet new set of stamps called Brighter Days. Warning: Adorable! 🙂

I created this background with the Rectangle Masking Stencil and just the Heart layer from the Puppy Love Layering stencil set.

I colored the rainbow with Copics and added in to the panel along with some stitching. I think this turned out to be a sweet and cheery card in the end.

Next up, this sweet little shaker with the cutest cloud! I gave the cloud some googley eyes to add to the fun and super cuteness. Inside the shaker card is the TE Sparkly Stars and Vanilla Creme shaker bits.

For the background, I added some very faint stenciling with the Splash stencil for some “rain” if you will.

Gah! It’s so fun! The shaker bit added something a little extra. ❤

Next up, this sweet little umbrella! Showered with Love! This could be great for an every day kinda card or wouldn’t it be fun for a wedding shower or baby shower too? Changing up the colors a bit could change the entire feeling. 🙂

I colored the one umbrella with Copics and die cut it out, adding it with foam adhesive to the background of umbrellas. I recommend stamping the panel and then putting the one you colored on top. This will help with placement–I’ve learned this lesson many a times. 😉

Finally, I have these sweet rain boots with the RAINBOW!!

I used the Square Window Masking stencil with Earl Gray ink for the Brighter Skies sentiment.

These new illustrations are just the sweetest and sure to brighten any mailbox or doorstep you send it to. 🙂

I just love the rainbow goodness! ❤

Somewhere Over the Rainbow Kit from Taylored Expressions

Hello and welcome to a SUPER FUN release celebration for  Taylored Expressions! This new Somewhere Over the Rainbow Kit is available NOW over at Taylored Expressions TODAY, May 12 right HERE!!

This release is ALLLLLL about the Rainbows and sending some much needed to cheer in the mail…and do you see the envelope seals?! Gah!

Let’s get this party started! 🙂 I have A LOT to share!

This first rainbow card is made with kit’s Masking Rainbow Stencils and my TE Blender Brushes. First, I blended on some Sugar Cube ink to give the dye inks a nice solid layer to blend on. It makes the finished product more vivid when you are using colored cardstock.

I also used the Frame in Frame 2 die to finish it all off. Eeeep! I sure ❤ this sentiment! 🙂

Next up, I have one of the simplest cards I made but one of my faves! The Rainbow Masking Stencils are super easy to use because there are two different stencils. The spacing makes it easy to not blend into the wrong arch. That little smiley is adorable!

The smile fits fantastically on the little clouds, but I thought maybe the Rainbow wanted to smile too. 🙂

And then, we have the dies!!! Oh goodness–how FUN are these!? These sweet sentiments are the perfect font and so delightful for these cards. ❤

For this card, I embossed the  background with TE’s Cloudy Days Embossing folder and then inlaid the die cuts, added some stitching.

These clouds are the perfect finishing touch. There are two cloud dies in the kit. One is simple and the other has the little pierced dots on it. Both match each other and it’s great to have the two options.

While we are on the dies, how about a shaker card? This is too fun! I added the previous released Rainbow Sprinkles, Full of Heart and Sparkly Stars to make a mix. All that sparkly action allowed for me to keep the cardstock simple in Sugar Cube.

This is a fun one and very easy to make. I highly recommend using the TE Foam Strips. They are not only perfect for the Simple Strips sentiments, but they bend SUPER easy for shaker cards, making it much faster than using foam tape. 🙂

I just love this little rainbow! ❤

I have a couple cards I made on Toffee cardstock too! Who am I? I’m not sure, but I thought it would be fun to blend the Rainbow again with Sugar Cube ink first, giving the ink a *base* and then blended the dye inks over top a few there.

Mixed it up with the rainbow colors on this one too. For the little pattern stamps, I wanted a light gray, so I off stamped the Earl Grey ink and then stamped it on here so it wasn’t quite as dark/bold.

This is another fave sentiment in this kit. Well, who am I kidding, I actually ❤ them all! ha! 🙂

Here’s another super super simple one on Toffee.

I wanted to have a variety of different cards. My plan is to circle back and make a pile to mail out. 🙂

These all just make me happy! 🙂

Lastly, I thought I’d REALLY mix it up and just use the pixelated rainbow stamp to create a multicolored background on cardstock. 

Once that was done, I die cut a couple tags out and overlaid them with vellum before stitching them. The smaller one is cut out of the larger one, but you’d never know once I adhered it back in. 🙂

Thought it would be fun to try something different with the kit. 🙂

Well, believe it or not, I think that is all I have in the way of cards to share today. I had A LOT of fun making these cards and the timing of this kit while being more at home these days made it all the better.

If you’re thinking of ordering this fun kit, I wouldn’t wait too too long. Quantities are limited, so hop to! 🙂 You can find the kit in my supplies below or Somewhere Over the Rainbow Kit HERE.

Taylored Expressions Release Week: Day 3

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

Today, I am sharing the new Big Grumpy Easter. And you know, I could not love this more if I tried! How funny (and oh so very happy) does he look? The little bunny ears?! It just completely makes me smile!  🙂

He plopped the chocolate bunny head first into the basket. Too much!  😉

I colored everything with Copic makers and adhered using TE Foam tape onto the Embossing Folder: Cloudy Days background. This card also has the new Drip Drop bits that are so awesome to add a little somethin somethin. 😉

I could make these all day! Too funny! 🙂

Next up, I have a card I made with the new Eggceptional Background and the previously released Hip Hop Bunny because he wanted in on the Easter action too! 🙂 This egg background colors in lickety split with the coordinating stencil. 1-2-3 with TE Blender Brushes and done! 🙂

This sentiment is from the Big Grumpy Easter set as well. Doesn’t he too look super happy!? haaahahaaa!!

I colored this silly bunny with Copic markers and added to the background with some vellum to add a little interest. 🙂
