Taylored Expressions has a New Release today! It is the Create in Quads: Snowflake Stencils! I am sooooooooo excited about these! The stenciling is super fast and then boom, four cards! These are even easier using the Create-in-Quads Paper Packs. (Not essential for creating, but just helps streamline your Quad stenciling. 😉)
For these cards on toffee, I used Poblano Pepper, Sugar Cube, Mushroom, Earl Grey and Fruit Punch inks.
The sentiments are from the new Winter Blessings sentiment set and there are coordinating dies too.
I also had to use a little Gus & Gertie: Holiday Adventures. They are OH too cute!
I die cut the Open Scallop Circle out of TE Vellum to create a subtle backdrop for the sentiments.
They all turned out so wintery and delightful. This is a GREAT way to make a card set for gifting!
I finished them all off with some stitching and some Clear Drip Drops.
Next up, I used the Sugar Cube Create-in-Quads Paper Packs to create a set in Sugar Cube. I wanted to see if I could keep this set REALLY simple, so I eliminated the stitching. I don’t think I will do that again because they truly feel incomplete to me–ha! Creature of habit.
Initially, I set out to make a set of Rainbow Snowflake cards but I got sidetracked mid stenciling and forgot my plan! Ha! Anyone else ever do this? 😋 So anywho, I ended up with this funky pastel set…
But I do enjoy how they turned out, so it’s all good! 🙂
I used the Frame in Frame 2 die set, along with the Petite Scallop Rectangular Stacklets. I created a simple way to add a little something without going crazy. 🙂
This set of cards is made with the Get Cozy set. I love the font in this set along with the simple block layout. Right up my alley. 😉
I decided use Strawberry Milkshake for the card bases. I added some embossed lines on some for a little extra.
I added a little simple silver thread to this card. I broke my SIMPLE SIMPLE SIMPLE rule just this once for this card. 🙂
If you missed the first set of Create in Quads Stencils created, those are called Create-in-Quads – Mistletoe Layering Stencil. This is the newest set, and I’m guessing FAR from the last! Such a cool and brilliant idea.
By the way, there is a NEW gift with purchase over at TE this month month–it is called Anytime Expressions and it is a great set of sentiments for any time of year:
