New Simple Strips and Mini Strips!

Welcome to a very fun release day over at Taylored Expressions! 🙂 The new release is available at Taylored Expressions today! 🙂

This release was clearly made just for me! haaa! Not really, but I do love it! 🙂 All the snark just makes me laugh. And who doesn’t need that about now?

For the first one, I used Love from Max and Millie along with the New Simple Strips- Snarky. Max is so perfect for this sentiment! He is sooooo thrilled with people.  🙂

I used the Rough Draft Background for the little panel along with the Notebook Paper die. The Grass Stencil created the perfect base for Max to sit on. The heart antennae though–tooooo funny! 🙂

Love it! 🙂

Next up, I busted out the Mythical Grumplings to use this  Sentiment. I cannot tell you how perfect this is for a few of my friends. 🙂

Oh that Angry Unicorn is so so not into it. ❤ I cut the strips for this one with the Asymmetrical Die.

Last up, I thought it would be fun to use one of the Hot Flash Grumplings to express the struggle. This sentiment is from the new Fun & Funny Mini Strips and I love that little set, right along with the SS Snarky. 🙂

I always laugh when these little funny sentiments are paired with sweet colors and flowers. So I used the Floral Fields Background tone on tone here, blending on colors with the  Masking Stencil-Square as my guide.

To finish it off, I added some stitching, some bits and some score lines. I love the silliness of the whole scene and can’t wait to mail this one! ❤

I hope you find yourself laughing as you read all the new sentiments available. I had to stamp and die cut them in bulk, right out of the gate because I knew I’d be using them often. AND I even put them in the Simple Strips Storage Container straightaway so I could find them easily. Who am I? Ha! Each one I read, I really just laugh out loud. I can’t wait to use them ALL! ❤

Taylored Expressions: New Release!

Happy Tuesday! The new release  from Taylored Expressions is available NOW–find them all available over at Taylored Expressions HERE.

I had stamped and colored (with Copic Markers) more sweet images from Max & Millie, so I decided to get them onto cards! Which honestly, is somewhat of a feat because I often just let them collect in a pile for “later”. Ha! But I thought if I kept these simple, I’d get them made and mailed! 🙂

First up –This one that makes me laugh! Meh. 🙂

Quick background with the Grid Background stamp and a little window and done! 🙂

Next, I have this even simpler one with the cute image and some scoring! I love simple cards! And they are more likely to get made and mailed out sometimes. 🙂

Gah! How cute are these new Max & Millie stamps?! ❤

Check out my post from yesterday HERE with more from the Taylored Expressions release! 🙂

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! 🙂
