Taylored Expressions: January Release!

Welcome to our last day to formally celebrate Release Week for Taylored Expressions January Release! All the new products are available over at Taylored Expressions now!

My first card today is a sweet little card for Valentine’s or so many other occasions. This little balloon, Flip the Script – Love, is adorable and oh so quick to ink up and stamp several to use!   πŸ™‚

I thought it would be fun and unexpected to have a pink sky and a blue balloon! πŸ™‚ I stenciled over the Cloud Stencil with the new Heart to Heart Stencil. I added some stitching some new TE Heart bits and put it all together! ❀ how it turned out. πŸ™‚

Next up, I have a card that is perfect for any day and OH SO FUN to make! I used the new Designer Masking Stencil Hexagons and blended inks on one over the other and back and forth. It goes very swift with the TE Blender Brushes because the handles are colored and your brain doesn’t have to look at the brush head color  to remember which is which. LOVE THAT! πŸ™‚

I adore this sentiment from the Drop a Note sentiment set and I thought this card turned out fun with the little bit of stitching and clear spots I added.

Taylored Expressions Release Week: Day 3

Welcome to Day Three of Taylored Expressions January Release Week! If you missed my other two posts earlier this week,Β  I’ll link you up down below. πŸ™‚

Today, I am sharing the new dies: Shot through the Heart. I love when you can stretch your supplies for other things and this card is exactly that! I used a Valentine set to create a fun everyday Hello card! πŸ™‚

I think this would be fun popped up to give more oomph, but for mailing, I thought flat is good. πŸ˜‰

Rainbowing is always a good idea! πŸ™‚ And yes, that’s a word.Β  Wink wink! πŸ™‚

Next up, I have a card I made with the new Follow Your Heart Background. It’s a quick and easy frame to use for lots of different cards. I added this cutie little guy from last year’s Valentine release, Punny Notes. His cactus is from the Big Grumpy Cat Valentine set.

I white heat embossed the background and then used the new stencils to shade a heart in the center. I added a few touches with Copic markers for some pop. Then I added the cutie pup and his cactus with foam adhesive, after coloring them with Copics. Just adorable!

Such a sweet little card, perfect for my son! πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚

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! πŸ™‚

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! πŸ™‚

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! πŸ™‚ 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! πŸ™‚

Taylored Expressions Release Week! Day 1

Happy 2020! It’s time to start sneaking for Taylored Expressions new January Release?!Β  Love and friendship and laughter is in the air! πŸ™‚

This first card features the new Big Grumpy Cat Stamp & Die Combo, Big Grumpy – Valentine and the previously released Square Masking Stencils. I am still cracking up at the funny sentiments in this set–I love them all! Just so funny! And the fun little extras to adorn the new Big Grumpies are delightful! ❀

I colored this big critter with Copics and added a square mask on the back before adhering everything with foam adhesive. Such a funny little Valentine to send out to a friend!

Next up, there is a fun new addition to the Mini Strips–this is Mini Strips Valentine + Asymmetrical Die. These dies are a fun new addition to use with all the Mini Strips you may already have. Great to mix it up! πŸ™‚

I stamped a tone on tone background with last year’s Valentine Backstory and used the Heart Stacklets to create a window for a fun shaker. These little heart bits are new too! Soooo fun!! πŸ™‚
I think this could be for Valentine’s Day or really any time, don’t you think? I don’t know that I will ever try to stitch around a heart again though….that was tricky and didn’t turn out super super smooth, but it does have that hand made touch, doesn’t it? πŸ˜‰

Be sure to check out the TE Blog for all the latest and fun! This is a great way to start the new year, with love, friendship and laughter! πŸ™‚

Taylored Expressions: Treat Boxes And…!

Happy Thursday! I’m back to share more about the new release over at Taylored ExpressionsΒ today! All the new products are available over at Taylored Expressions now!

Today, I’m here to share the new All Tucked in Christmas set. Love these little treat boxes for giving!

I used the previously released All Tucked In favor box and All Tucked In Windows to create a favor box for small holiday gift-giving. (I had a sweet little hand model to help me out with photos–paid in a candy sample, of course. πŸ™‚ )

I love these sweet fonts so much!

Cue the holiday music! πŸ™‚

Next up, a fun filled holiday card, ready to give! It is always so satisfying to use a lot of smaller stamps to create big, isn’t it?! I thought a “chalkboard” like look would be fun. I remember when chalkboard was all the rage! Or maybe it still is? As you can tell, I really have my finger on the pulse of trends, don’t I? Ha!! But I do love this truck! Are you with me? πŸ™‚

Such a fun background with all those sentiments and small little icons! ❀

TE Masking Stencils!

Hola! I hope you have enjoyed all the fun here and over at Taylored Expressions this week! I’m here for Day Three of sharing what my friend Laurie Willison created in conjunction with Taylored Expressions! These stencils are available over at Taylored Expressions now! 😊

My first card today uses one of the new rectangle stencils on top of an embossing folder. I embossed the panel first, but you could do the blend first and then emboss. I was thinking it would be fun to catch all the grooves and bits darker with my Taylored Expressions blender brushes this way. πŸ™‚

This card is oh so lovely for Fall! And honestly, it was fairly simple to make. The part that was the most consuming was decision making, as always. πŸ˜‚

This TE Hello sentiment die is one of my favorites of all, so I thought it a perfect fit! And this embossing folder: Delightful! Masks up so quick and easy with the stencil!

Next up, I have this card I made with the circle masking stencil and the edge of another masking stencil. Purple tape is your friend on this exercise. πŸ™‚

Smile! I was trying to think of all the possible options on this color blocking and finally just had to go with some! Ha!

This card is pretty straightforward and easy to make with these quick stencils. πŸ™‚
