Celebrating Class of 2021! - New TE release!

by - April 27, 2021


Hi folks, 

Taylored Expressions has a new release out and it's all about celebrating new grads and our amazing teachers! I cannot imagine it's already been a year since I have graduated.... In my mind, because I didn't get a ceremony, I haven't 'officially' graduated! Nevertheless, this release gave me an opportunity to make some cards for my friends who will be gradating in a few weeks :)

My first card uses a bunch of products from the new release. I first created a chalkboard by ink blending the edges of Sweet Basil cardstock using Peapod and Sweet Basil ink. I then rubbed the Sugar Cube ink directly on the cardstock to create some streaks that look like 'chalk'. For the wood frame, I stamped the Wood Plank background using Toffee Ink on Toffee Cardstock. I also ink blended the edges using Toffee Ink. Then, I heat embossed the adorable Full Circle - School background using white embossing powder. I lightly ink blended on top using Sweet Basil ink so that the background isn't 'pure white' and looks like it's been drawn with chalk. I then heat embossed the On the Block - Grad and Mini Strips - St Patrick's Day on Sweet Basil Cardstock. I didn't apply full pressure while stamping On the Block - Grad so that the heat embossed sentiment looks like it's been sketched/drawn with chalk! Then, I finally, stamped and colored  the pencils from Create in Color edger stamp :) 

Supply List:


My next card is perfect for all the wonderful teachers in your life! I stamped the sentiment from the Fill in the Blank – Teacher stamp and cut out the letters to arrange them on my card. I used a few hearts from the Hearts A Plenty Cling & Clear Combo set to fill in the ‘O’ and added details with markers and a white gel pen. The globe is created with the Whole Wide World die collection and added a little apple from the I Pick You Cling & Clear Combo set. For the background, I ink blended an A2 cardstock using Peaches and Cream ink and for the desk, I stamped Playfully Plaid using Peaches and Cream ink on Peaches and Cream cardstock. Finally, I stamped a sentiment from Full Circle: School using Lavender ink.
