Taylored Expressions: Kit Exclusives a la carte!

It’s a fun little release over atย  Taylored Expressions today. Some of the kit exclusives are now made available individually and today you can order them!ย 

For my card below, I used the Heart Fence from the Gnome kit! The Gnome kits was a fave of mine and psssst you can also order the Gnomes today! ๐Ÿ™‚

I adore this little Heart Fence die and I thought with Mother’s day ahead soon, this would be entertaining. :)๐Ÿ˜Š

This little chickie is from the Sarcasti-chicklets Set. I just fussy cut the little sentiment bubbles super quick and easy. They all came together quickly because I stamped them on Pineapple cardstock and then just did a little bit of shading with Copic Markers.

I thought it would be fun to stamp another sentiment on the inside along with stenciling the Hearts from the Stencil Strips-Love set. The blue little textured background is done with the Pretty Petals stencil.

I had to add a little stitching over the top too. I love this card. It is both sweet and also sooooo true! ๐Ÿ™‚

All these products are available now over at Taylored Expressions.

Sending Happy Thoughts!

It is raining cats and dogs here for the next 24 hours at least, so I thought I’d pop in and share a few more rainbows using the new Rainbow Turnabout from Concord & 9th!

This rainbow stamp is called Rainbow Turnabout (you can find it HERE)! ๐Ÿ™‚ The sentiment is from the Tropical Vibes Turnabout stamp HERE.

I thought it would be fun to mix up the colors of inks this go round. I think they both turned out fun and just slightly different. ๐Ÿ™‚

A smidge of pastel/retro maybe? ๐Ÿ™‚

Once again, here is a Pro Tip from my friend Cheryl, that will change your world using this Rainbow Turnabout stamp:

Mount this stamp on a new cutting plate from your die cut machine or on the old Fiskars Stamp Press or the like. It works sooooo much easier than trying to use this turnabout on the Misti. My friends experienced many trials and errors with Misti and once we tried this plate thing: Ba Bam! So much easier! ๐Ÿ™‚ Genius, Cheryl!! โค

I’m going to pop these in the mail ASAP! ๐Ÿ™‚

I used my favorite Hearts from Paper Smooches HERE. It’s in the die set called Hearts. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

The die around the outside that creates the lines is called Lawn Fawn: Just Stitching Double Rectangles Dies HERE.

Check out my previous Rainbow Turnabout stamp cards HERE and another C9 post HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today! I’m hoping to see a REAL rainbow after all this rain ends. Yikes!

Rainbows of Kindness!

Hope you all are having a good day! I thought I’d pop in and share a few cards I made using the new Rainbow Turnabout from Concord & 9th! And then a few more cards… ๐Ÿ™‚

Always good stuff coming out from Concord & 9th! This set is called Rainbow Turnabout (you can find it HERE)! ๐Ÿ™‚

The sentiment is from the Sunshine Turnabout stamp HERE.

Love this sentiment! ๐Ÿ™‚

Pro Tip from my friend Cheryl, that will change your world using this Rainbow Turnabout stamp:

Mount this stamp on a new cutting plate from your die cut machine or on the old Fiskars Stamp Press or the like. It works sooooo much easier than trying to use this turnabout on the Misti. My friends experienced many trials and errors with Misti and once we tried this plate thing: Ba Bam! So much easier! ๐Ÿ™‚ Genius, Cheryl!! โค

And then there is Happiness! I know who I am sending this one to! ๐Ÿ™‚

I stamped the sentiment in Black Versafine and clear heat embossed over top. That is all on vellum.

The little heart strip I used I just love and it’s from Paper Smooches HERE. It’s in the die set called, again appropriately, Hearts. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

Here is another set of cards I made recently with the C9 Rainbows. This is from the set called Brighter Days and you can get just the Brighter Days stamps HERE or the stamps and dies HERE.

I made these and mailed them out immediately. โค Love how quick they came together and I added some scoring and stitching, (shocking, I know!), and out the door!

And lastly, here is one more card I sent to say thank you for your kindness. I have really appreciated so many things from friends and family during this interesting time in our world. For this card, I used Concord & 9th’s Thank You for Being set HERE and Taylored Expressions Frame in Frame die HERE.

This one works great for mailing. ๐Ÿ™‚

Check out my previous C9 post HERE using theย Special Delivery set. Cute cute!

You Are Forever in My Heart…

Hope you are having a good weekend–I’m sure it’s a bit different that usual, but it just means more time to craft! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m here to share a card using some goodies from ย Honey Bee Stamps.

I figured we could allllll use a rainbow about now, so I ran with that! ๐Ÿ™‚

I continue thinking differently about some of the products I have and this one came together swimmingly! This is the Stacking Pockets Honey Cuts….I just haven’t cut it apart yet, so I die cut it out of every color and voila, a rainbow! The best part: I can make EIGHT total cards out of these die cuts! So let’s see if if I get to that now or later.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

The sentiment is from the Heart stamp set and the Honey Cuts: Hearts.ย  I enjoy those little hearts and the layered word “heart”. So sweet! ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you have enjoyed my March of Honey Bee product re-purposing!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s so fun to stretch our supplies for new things.

Be sure to check out the Honey Bee Stamps blog HERE. ๐Ÿ™‚


Here’s a recap of all the new Honey Bee goodies I used and links to each below:
