New Stamp Joy Exclusive Release from Taylored Expressions!

by - March 23, 2021

Hi folks, 

If you saw any projects on social media using the Stamp Joy products and wanted to get them.. here is your chance! Today's project has a little backstory... I am always out of ideas for cards when it comes to florals! Most of my floral cards follow the formula - ink blended background + colored florals on one side or the center. I also find myself using the exact same color scheme over and over again. If you are in the same situation as me.. here is a fun little trick to get more inspiration! 

I LOVE browsing through clothes and prints by fashion designers. Each season has a specific style, layout and color scheme and they almost never repeat them. I like looking at Indian clothes; specifically prints by Masaba and designer wedding lahengas! Today's card was actually inspired by a lahenga that I pinned a while back...

Isn't this absolutely gorgeous? I love the tiny blue and pink mirror work on a bright yellow background. I tried to pick some elements from this dress and recreate them on a card. For example, I didn't have bling at hand so I decided to substitute with a pierced cover plate and used Nuvo Glitter drops. Can you guess the rest?

I first started off by using die cutting Pineapple cardstock using the Pierced Lattice Cutting Plate. I then placed a Lollipop cardstock behind this. I then used Heart Stacklets and Stitched Heart Stacklets die to die cut the hearts out of Sugar Cube cardstock and glitter cardstock. Later, I stamped various images from Full of Flowers - Single and colored them using colored pencils and alcohol markers. Finally, I stamped a sentiment from the same set using Cookie Monster ink and added a sentiment from Building Blocks Love Additions heat embossed on Lollipop cardstock. Finally, for the faux mirror look, I used Nuvo Goldcoast Glitter drops. 

Supply List:
I hope you enjoyed this fun little inspiration! If you get inspired by clothes too, feel free to comment on my post on IG or below. Be sure to check out the TE blog for more inspiration from the rest of the DT.

Happy Crafting,
