Taylored Expressions: Father’s Day and Pet Release!

Hello and happy day! We are sneaking a new releaseย  today forย  Taylored Expressions!ย All the new products will be available over at Taylored Expressions tomorrow, May 19th.ย This release is full of fun stamps for Dad and for your favorite little furry friends!

This first card is I used the new Gus and Gertie set. I cannot get enough of these little cuties! I stamped and colored them all–twice. ๐Ÿ™‚

For the background I used the new Plaid Layering Stencil. I switched it up a bit and used in a different way that I thought would be a fun change. ๐Ÿ™‚ I almost just kept it with the Blueberry stripes, because that alone was delightful! ๐Ÿ™‚

Gah โค Gus and Gertie!!

Next up, I am sharing another little cutie pup card…. You’re Dog-Gone Amazing! ๐Ÿ™‚ย This one uses the new Simple Strips-Woof, Paw Prints and the cute pup from Swinging By!

Isn’t this new puppy cute too? He’s from the new set Swinging By. I colored him with Copic Markers. I went with Cool Greys for him, but I normally uses the Neutral Grays. I used the Heart Stacklets to cut out the heart after stamping it. It works swimmingly.

Next up, I used the new Brushstroke Basics, Building Blocks-Him and Inside Scoop-Him. I stamped the first sentiment on the tag and heat embossed it. Then I decided where I wanted the tag trimmed down to and ran it through the die cut machine again, cutting the tag a big shorter. It’s a quick trick to customize your tag sizes.

I thought these cute little hearts (Bit and Pieces: Have a Heart) were the perfect finishing touch before adding everything down with foam adhesive. For the background on this card, I used the new Plaid Layering Stencil and just sort of mixed it up to create a plaid background. I love this new stencil set! So may possibilities and super easy to use.

Also, apparently I really like using Blueberry ink for this stencil because I did it twice this month! ha! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s the sweet staying on the inside of this card–the Inside Scoop-Him set. ๐Ÿ™‚

Exciting News Today!

I have exciting news to share today!! I am joining the awesome Taylored Expressions Design Team! I am so looking forward to all the fun ahead with this amazing group of designers! What a treat!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I had great fun volunteering at Stamp Joy last Fall and could not be more excited for this opportunity to work with everyone and everything TE! โคTo celebrate, I wanted to make a card to share today. We have been out-of-town for the holiday, and we lost power last night, so I am a smidge behind, but nothing can dull my excitement today! ๐Ÿ™‚

I adore Taylored Expressions felt, so I thought it fitting to use some today! ๐Ÿ™‚ I reverse scored the panel before cutting it partially with the TE Flap Stacks. I cut it partially, and flipped it over and cut it again, because I wanted the rectangle, but I did not want the flap for this card. ๐Ÿ˜‰ After, I glued and stitched all the hearts and sentiment on, I then stitched the whole lot onto the panel. Lots of love and thanks! โค

A HUGE Thank you to Taylor and her awesome team on the home front in Iowa! My neighbors! Big hugs to the TE Design Team for being so warm and welcoming to a newcomer. โค

I look forward to sharing the forthcoming NEW Taylored Expressions RELEASE with you soon!! I have been very busy this past month crafting my little heart out! ๐Ÿ™‚

Below is my list of TE products–the Thanks die is not exactly the same as what I used, but in the same vein. ๐Ÿ™‚


Thank you for stopping by today and I look forward to sharing more soon! ๐Ÿ™‚
