TE Individual Kit Pieces!

Happy New Week! Anyone else sort of spinning in circles like me? Ha!

Well anyway, onto fun news instead–Today,  Taylored Expressions is releasing products from a few kits. These products were previously only available in the kits, but now can be purchased individually at Taylored Expressions today! 🙂

I’m sharing two cards I made with individual kit pieces. First up, the Frayed Edge Masking stencil from the Field Notes kits–completely versatile for ANY project! I figured I need a few more of these cards, so I created a fun double stenciled background using the Frayed Edge Masking stencil and the Criss Cross Stencil. Of course this partnered with Big Grumpy and the Farewell 2020 Download.

I cannot have enough of these before the end of the year! haaaaaaaaaaa! 🙂

So true, so true. Sorry 2020.

Next up, I used the sentiment set called Good Vibes from the Hey There Kit. This sentiment set is a fave, especially these days. Need these sentiments so much right now! 🙂

I decided to make a trio of cards in hopes I’d send them out in the mail this week…they are needed elsewhere, not in my stash! 🙂

Pretty straightforward–I blocked out some strips of cardstock and then die cut them with the Mini Slim Trifold Template and the Stitched Mini Slim Stacklets. This is very clean look and easy to replicate in so many different options. 

I added some scoring to the Toffee Card bases, some stitching and some Clear Drip Drops. I love having this stack to send out! 🙂

I love making a stack at time, but I often don’t think ahead like that. I am getting better though! 🙂

Good Vibes and Bunnies!

Greetings! Popping in today to share a couple of cards today. Good Vibes for the weekend! 🙂

This sentiment stamp is from Neat & Tangled appropriately titled Good Vibes The background I made with Neat & Tangled’s On the Edge scallop stamp.

This next card, I colored everything with Copic markers just a tad. I borrowed this stamp from my friend Linda at our retreat last month and stamped it with Versafine on Bristol. (I clearly had prepped it to use Zig Clean Color Markers on–Ha!.) I thought I had used Copic friendly ink and paper, but I did not. Oooops! You can see a little nose or two smudged, but it could have been a lot worse! If I had this stamp, I would have just stamped it again, but I had to work with what I had. And then, I sent it to Linda, because it is the perfect card for her! (sans smudging, of course) 🙂

These stamps are from Mama Elephant called The Bunny’s Hop. I just ❤ these cuties all bundled up together. Mama Elephant has a bunch of these bunches, and they are ALL adorable, of course. The sentiment is from another set Linda generously let me use called Tea with Friends by Mama Elephant. Super ❤ that sentiment! 🙂

These cards are both postal already! I hope you mail your cards too! Speaking from experience, it is  awesome to receive handmade cards (or store-bought!) in the mail. It can really brighten someone’s day so simply.

Thanks so much for stopping by again today! And thank you Linda for sharing your cute stamps and always being such a sweet friend.  🙂

Take care– Jill 🙂

Good Monday Morning to you! I was up extra early today to squeeze in a full day before the eclipse! But the weather is calling for a cloudy day, so yikes!

Anywho, on with this fun card to give! ❤️

For this card, I used Neat & Tangled’s Schoolhouse Good Vibes, and also the Geomentric Blooms stencil with Fossilized Amber Oxide Ink. There are a couple of things I learned and I’d do differently next time, but I never know what I’m doing until I do it. My cards are thought through as I go. I don’t know if that’s good or bad? Probably both. 😉
 LOVE these little mice! I colored them with Copic markers. 🙂

I’m joining in the Little Tangles Challenge this month. I was excited to see the challenge was birthday, and thought I’d catch up on making a bunch of birthday cards. Well, so far I have the one here. LOL!! But there’s still time! So, we’ll see!   🙂

Check it out HERE! 🙂 And a BIG HAPPY 5TH Birthday to Neat & Tangled! How awesome and exciting is that!?

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

Hola! I ❤ this sentiment from Neat and Tangled! 🙂

I used Neat and Tangled’s stamp set Good Vibes and their stencil Scoops, blending on Distress Inks. I then sprayed it with water to get a little movement, but apparently it wasn’t having it! Haaaa!

I wanted to get in on this month’s Little Tangles Challenge: Color Combo Challenge! Plenty of time for you to join in too! How awesome and tasty is this image below?!Yum! Happy Summer indeed!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!
