A Sweet Little Set!

Hello crafty friends–today, I’m sharing a cutie lil’ Taylored Expressions set of note cards and envelopes to send . 🙂 Just yesterday, I was able to take full advantage of a snow day and get many handmade cards ready to send to friends and family. It is something that always lifts my mood. 🙂

I hope you have found some inspiration over on the Taylored Expressions blog this past week with all the great sets the Creative Team has made–I have for sure! 🙂

I used TE’s Give Me a Sign set for these cute little critters. I simply cut up some cardstock strips to add a little color behind the sweet tags.

I added a smidge of Glossy Accents to each to make their cute noses.

For the envelopes, I used the recently released Mini Mail. I colored them simply with colored pencils.

This little fox might be my favorite. ❤

Or maybe this cutie giraffe? Ha! 🙂 Who am I kidding, I think they are all adorable! I also like that you can switch up the critters and sentiments–so many possibilities!

Give me a tag and some kraft cardstock, and I could be set for a long while. 🙂

Because these little guys are not too large, they are easily colored quickly with Copic Markers.

I also used a little quick stencil work on the envelopes for fun.

I think they all came together for a sweet little set, ready to address and send! 🙂

I stamped these all with Oreo ink and colored them in with Copic Markers. I die cut and scored the card panels with the strips of cardstock, adding the sweet tags on top with some twine.

Also, one other fun little tidbit, before I share my supplies… An opportunity to order a personalized stamp for all the projects you put so much love into! ❤

There is a TE Pop Up shop where you can order your own personalized stamp? I was so excited to be gifted this one from TE. I am thinking I might need to order another… wink wink. 🙂

The Personalized Pop-Up Shop goes through this Sunday, February 3rd, so make sure to order your own today! There are 4 different designs to choose from and you can customize the stamp with your name, website, etc. Click here to get more details and to order your stamp today!

Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks: Day 2

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

This first card cracks me up–because Sarcasti-Chick has a new wardrobe this winter season: Sarcasti-Chick’s Winter Closet. I decided she needed the cute sweater and obviously a heart headband. Obviously. 🙂 I colored everything with Copic Markers.

I also used the forthcoming Framed Roses Cutting Plate. I thought it would look awesome embossed and it does!! ❤ how that turned out. 🙂

So fun! She’s a crack up!

The next cards, might just be my favorite from this release? Maybe? Ha! 🙂 I just think these puntastic new Punny Note Valentines are adorable! They were super fun to color. I am looking forward to my son using them to make a few fun valentines too. 🙂

I stamped these with Oreo ink and colored them in with Copic Markers. The Scalloped Notecard die is about the cutest little card maker ever. So sweet!

All these cut little clouds and bits are from the Notecard Accessories die set.

These little envelopes are the 3 x 3 Envelopes. I want to make all the mini cards! 🙂

I also used the Mini Mail stamp set to create all the fun envelopes that go along with these lil’ cards. I thought it would be fun to add a little color action on them. They were fun to make as well. I just had to remind myself that I could not blend Copics on them, so I had to take it easy on the blending. 🙂
