New Spring Release from Taylored Expressions!

by - February 23, 2021

Hi folks, 

Taylored Expressions has a fun new Spring themed release out and I am lovin' all the new critters and dies! I have so many fun cards to show you so lets get started...

My first card is filled with color! After the previous release, I have been itching to use my left over rainbow strips and this was the perfect opportunity. I first started off by cutting Lemon Meringue, Granny Smith, Cookie Monster, Lollipop and Jelly Donut into stripes for the background. I then used the newly released Pierced Lattice Cutting Plate with Sugar Cube cardstock to layer it on top of my rainbow background. I then colored various images from the Springtime Smiles set using alcohol markers and colored pencils. Finally I spelled out 'EASTER' using Cap -It - Off Alpha die set and added a sentiment from Mini Strips - Fun and Funny to tie everything together!

Supply List:

My second card used the newly released Wood Plank Background and Unexpected Blessings stamp set. I created faux wood planks by ink blending Sea Salt cardstock using Peaches and Cream and Toffee ink. I then stamped the background image using Toffee ink. I then cut this background into strips and ink blended the edges again using Toffee Ink. I then created a floral wreath using Unexpected Blessings stamp set that encircles the ‘you mean the world to me’ sentiment from the Handlettered Sentiments stamp set.

Supply List: 

My final card shows you yet another way to use the mason jar stamp and die! Can you tell how much I love this set? I can think of so many ways to use this set every release but I have to stop myself :D I first started off by die cutting the scalloped frame using Frame in Frame 2 cutting plate out of Sugar Cube and then placed it on Pink Champagne cardstock. I then die cut some grass using the Wispy Grass Border out of Granny Smith.. As usual, I ink blended the edges using Granny Smith and Cilantro and added some paint splatters to make it more realistic! Later, I created the cloudy background by using the Rolling clouds dies as stencil with Cookie Monster and Sprinkles ink. I then colored the bunny image and some other mini images from the set using colored pencils and alcohol markers. I also used some of the tiny carrots as shaker bits!
