Taylored Expressions: Cat Lover’s Release!

Welcome back! Today we are celebrating a new release for the Cat Lover’s out there from Taylored Expressions! All the new products will be available over at Taylored Expressions tomorrow, June 16th. This release is full of sweet little feline friends!

For my first card here today, I used the new Max & Millie set– Be warned, it’s adorable!!

I mean really? How cutie patootie is this little critter!!? And this sentiment is perfection for this sweet image!

I used the Circle Masking Stencils in combination with the Polka Party stencil. I just did a double mask. 🙂 It turned out fun and I love the idea of the cheese imagery being mimicked.

Next up, I used the new Loyal Friend stamp set. On this card, I think we could say I did a triple mask? Ha! I used the Rectangle Masking Stencils to create an overall border. Then I used the Heart Masking Stencil to create the heart. I used both positive and negative on the Heart Stencil, masking where I wanted the hearts and paw prints to be and not be.

The Puppy Love Layering stencils work perfectly to create a sweet backdrop for the message on this card. (just don’t tell the kitties it’s called Puppy Love. 😉 )

Such a heartfelt sentiment to send someone who really needs it.

I’ve really been into the Cupcake and Sprinkles colors lately…wondering if I am craving baked goods or just these colors? ha! 🙂

I highly recommend Pixie Spray in combo with your TE Blender Brushes to make all your stenciling action a little more fun and easy peasy! 🙂

One last card for today–this cutie little mouse from the Max & Millie set! He wanted to send a smile! 🙂 I colored him with Copic Markers and die cut him out.

I used the Hinged Insta Frames and the Lots of Love stencil to create a little space for him on this card. 🙂

I finished it off with some stitching and some Drip Drops. He’s ready to mail! 🙂

Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks: Day 2

Welcome back to Day Two of Taylored Expressions August Release Week! If you missed my post yesterday sharing day one, I’ll link you up down below. 🙂

This first card features one of the cutest new sets:  Simply Smitten. ❤ ! This little bear is so sweet!

I thought it would be adorable if he held a sign. 🙂 This sentiment is from the Simple Strips: Friendship. LOVE.

This is one of my favorite cards from this release. Such a little cutie!

Next up, I have these Autumn Treat Boxes!

These were so fun to make and now to have on hand for the fall! 🙂

I embossed  these before using the die to cut the little boxes. After cutting the boxes, I stamped them. They are simply adorable and perfect for giving little treats this fall–or changing up decor and giving anytime! 🙂 So quick and easy to put together–truly!

Taylored Expressions: February Release!

Welcome to Release Day for Taylored Expressions February Release! Are you ready for some cuteness? I am!!

My first card here features the NEW Cutting Edge – Spring cuties, all Copic  colored and die cut out. And then STACKED!! I mean, really–who doesn’t love a cute stack, with them all peeping out of these little port holes?!

I used the new Peaches n’ Cream again–I told you it is my new favorite–shhhh! 😉

Goodness me, too cute! For the background on the panel there, I used the new Folk Art Tulip stencil.

Next up, this adorable little set that is fantastic to share with kids or just keep to yourself. wink wink. It’s called Inky Fingers, and it is super sweet! ❤

Those bunny ears though!! 🙂 I used my fingers to stamp each little body there and filled in the little ears and rays with Copic Markers afterward.

I popped them all into these sweet little Hinged Insta-Frames and made them each shine on their own. I also used the NEW Backstory – Easter Background stamp for the card panel, stamped in Mint.

And as a little something extra special (to me, the completely biased writer here): Here is a sweet little card my son made! Here’s the in progress photo…I’d have cleaned up my desk mat there if I knew we were going to be taking photos and this video to share! It was very impromptu cardmaking here! Ha!

Always picks Candy Corn because it is Orange and it is called Candy Corn! 🙂 He wanted to make a heart of hearts–that is what all those little pictures are. ❤ Just melts me!

I even have a little video of fast motion if you’d like to watch? Here you go:

My hubby took his new card to work–how sweet is all this! ❤ Makes my heart so happy! It’s love inside love inside love! 🙂
