By Us As Us

Hola! I thought I’d pop in with a quick post sharing a cutie lil’ Taylored Expressions card!

I just get such a kick out of so many TE sentiments and I want to use THEM ALL at once! Ha!! 🙂

Too funny right? I know I have some friends like this, and we can carry on and laugh hysterically to ourselves about nonsense. ❤  

Sarcasti-chick is a hoot! And I super love these little Punny Notes Valentine critters! I stamped these with Oreo ink and colored them in with Copic Markers, and die cut them out. After I stenciled the die cut card panel, I added some stitching, popped the little critters on the card and added their frames. In the final second, I threw a little tiny felt heart on there at the bottom to button it all up. Too cute! 🙂

Taylored Expressions: December Release!

Welcome to Release Day for Taylored Expressions December Release!

This first card features the new sentiment set which clearly is right up my alley. It’s called Shenanigans and it is full of funny sentiments to send to friends and family. 🙂

This little cutie dog is from the new Punny Notes set–seriously fun! 🙂 I colored him with Copic markers and brushed on a little landscape for him to stand on before scoring the panel and adding the stitching. I have to make a couple of these and send them to friends that would probably get a kick out of them. ❤

Next Up, I used You Make My Heart Soar with the Accordion Heart. How sweet is this new set? And that Accordion Heart makes me happy!

Again, I colored this bike with Copic Markers and die cut it out. I embossed the background with the Petite Scalloped Square Stacklets. I used the Set the Scene – Cloud Stencils for the background texture and of course, finished it all off with some stitching! It so adorable floating through the air! 🙂

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. 🙂
