Taylored Expressions February Release: Day 2

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

This first card features a new stamp: In the Meadow. This lovely floral stamp can be used for so many occasions and so many different ways. I can think of so many ways to stamp it already! I paired it with the Handlettered Sympathy sentiments. These stamped sentiments make these difficult cards say the heartfelt things we feel. (There is also a coordinating die to die cut these Handlettered Sympathy sentiments out.)

I stamped this with Blue Corn ink to create the silhouette flower part and sentiment and then blended on lots of TE inks with the TE Blender Brushes. It’s so lovely how they always blend out so quickly and smoothly! 🙂

Next up, I have another card using Handlettered Sympathy and the new Botanical Beauty Background. Another floral stamp that is so easy to use for so many occasions and quickly or you can color it all in. The TE Creative Team made AMAZING cards coloring this lovely stamp in. You must check them out over at Taylored Expressions–jaw dropping gorgeous work! I’m telling you!

Because my Copic coloring skills are not as amazing 😉 , I thought to try this one embossed with some TE Watercolor. I love how it turned out and these colors blended beautifully together in watercolor as well. 🙂

Taylored Expressions January Release: Day 2

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

This first card features a new stamp and die: Big Grumpy Cat. Ok–this sentiment is absolutely HILARIOUS to me!!! Bwaaahaaaaha!!! Just when Big Grumpy Cat cannot be funnier, he so is! 🙂

I colored him with Copic markers and heat embossed the Shiplap Background before creating a little window behind him that I scored for some more texture back there. I also added these new bits from TE! 🙂

Next up, I have another little laugh!! If you can’t tell, I love making and sending funny cards. Laughter is so good for you! 🙂 This is the new Sarcasti-CHUCK!!! And check out his clothes–those are Sarcasti-CHUCK’s Wardrobe! Haaaa! What a dresser he is, don’t you think?

I colored everything with Copics before adhering all together and to the card front with foam adhesive. That sentiment is just so funny and I am so using that on my husband’s Valentine this year! 🙂

Taylored Expressions: August Release!

Welcome to Release Day for Taylored Expressions August Release! All the new products for August are available over at Taylored Expressions now! Oh happy day!

My first card today features the NEW Sweet and Spooky stamp set. How cute spooky are these little critters? eeeep in a dark forest! 🙂

I thought it would be fun for them to hang from a tree, and I think it creates a fun scene. That first little critter on the far left is a trip! 🙂

Next up, I shift directions and tried out the new Handlettered Alpha set! It’s a clear photopolymer set, which makes lining up these stamps fantastically easy. The red rubber stamps are awesome for stamp quality, but having this alpha set in red rubber might be tricky? 😉

I love alpha sets because you can write anything you want! I thought it would be fun to stamp these not only in black which creates a natural elegant flow, but in colors for fun and pep! 🙂

These stamp super quick once you get the hang of it! Imagine the envelopes you can make!! Well, I know what I’m doing soon! ha! 🙂

Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks! Day 1

Hello! Are you ready for Taylored Expressions new August Release?!  Let’s get this party started!

This first card features the new Foliage Background, Shiplap Background, and Handlettered Sentiments & Dies. When I first saw this background, I thought it was lovely, but after I stamped it, it jumped to a favorite! ❤ I used two different greens and added a little flower from the new Fresh Picked Florals.

These sentiments though: ❤ ❤ ❤ –and the fact that you can die cut them out and add them to a card like this–just awesome! 🙂 For the Shiplap Background, I lightened the gray ink by stamping off once before stamping on my cardstock. It worked perfectly to create a slight backdrop here.

Gah! Just love how this turned out in the end. Anyone else ever surprised after you finish something? ha!! 🙂 (I’m just going to tell you now, you NEED the Shiplap Background.  😉 )

Next up, I have another lovely floral card using the new Fresh Picked Florals. 

Honestly, I am not typically a floral person, but good gracious! These are lovely how they layer aren’t they?! Just love how this ink color combo turned out too! Bright and fresh!  AND I used purple! whooooop!! 😉

The little banner at the top is from the new Simply Smitten set. It worked perfectly for this card along with another sentiment from the new Handlettered Sentiments and dies! I’m a big fan! 🙂

I love the Petite Scalloped dies for both of these too! 🙂
