Oh Baby–New Release from TE!

Taylored Expressions has a New Release today that includes products for Babies! And goodness, just like babies, this release is adorable!

First up, we have the new Onesie Funsies and I obviously could not stop making them! I love these little sentiments you can stamp on the onesies and I wanted to use them all! ๐Ÿ™‚

First, I blended on all the inks using the new Gingham Rotating Stencil. I made one 6 x 6 panel and managed to cut out (5) full onsies and (2) partial onsies! EEEEEk they are the best! And then there are new little silver Hangers that put the cuteness over the top!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I thought it would be sweet to use theย  Scalloped Notecard die and create a handful of these little cards. They work perfectly for little shower gifts for when a baby arrives. I use these a lot for babies–because itty bitty! ๐Ÿ™‚

The Snuggle is REAL! ๐Ÿ™‚

This Blowouts one might be my fave! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Naps are for Quitters. I die!! So cute! I just the Frame in Frame 2 and added some simple score lines and splatters to them all to complete the panels with some stitching. I love how these turned out, letting the little Onesies Funsies shine! ๐Ÿ™‚

Gah! And then, things keep on up with the CUTE! There is a new die set called Vintage Wooden Toys and you can add cute little button wheels to complete the look. Definitely be sure to check out the rest of the Creative Team’s cards for examples–they are ADORABLE!!

I went with a simple little whale from the set, using the die piece that is supposed to be his tail later as the water spout. It works both ways, doesn’t it?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I created the blended background with the Mini Slim Tidal stencil using a handful of inks (see supplies for colors). The sentiment is the New Oh Baby die and I thought that was fun adding the pink little heart in it. ๐Ÿ™‚

And a heart of vellum behind the whale using the Heart Stacklets dies.

I stenciled all of the Mini Slim Tidal inside of the Mini Slim Scalloped Masking stencil. I love layering stencils like that. I creates a multilayer look without actually adding any layers! Perfect for mailing. Of course, I had to pop on a little big googley eye too! ๐Ÿ™‚

So cute! Babies are always fun to create cards for! โค

A Sweet Little Set!

Hello crafty friends–today, I’m sharing a cutie lil’ย Taylored Expressionsย set of note cards and envelopes to send . ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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. โค

Or maybe this cutie giraffe? Ha! ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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! โค

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. ๐Ÿ™‚
