Happy Mother's Day with Taylored Expressions!

by - April 06, 2021


Hi folks, 

There is a new Mother's Day themed release from Taylored Expressions and you sure won't be disappointed! I had a blast working with the new products that pair perfectly with some previous releases :) So let's get started! 

My first card is another one of my "bright colors on dark colored cardstock" cards! For this one. I tried something different and pulled out Mulled Wine cardstock from my stash - a color that I am yet to use after 7 months on the DT! I ink blended the edges using Mulled Wine ink as well and stamped the Gathered Greenery background using the same ink multiple times until I was happy with it :) I then colored various images from Picked Posies using colored pencils and markers and placed them at the edge of the card. I then used the new On the Block Mom die to create a vertical 'MOM'. I simply cut each alphabet separately and placed them strategically so that you cannot see the overlapped parts of the stamp. I also stamped the MOM using a lighter ink like Salt Water Taffy and then colored on top using Copics and colored pencils. Then, I added some Nuvo drops to finsh off my card (they actually hide a bunch of mistakes like adhesive, creases etc!)

Supply List:

My next card is a critter card that shows you a fun way to use the new Pierced Circles cutting plate die. This die adds a subtle background when used and is perfect for those critter cards when you don't want to add too many elements but think your card is 'lacking' in some way! I first started of by ink blending the edges of a Salt Water Taffy cardstock using Cookie Monster ink. I then used the Wispy Grass Border die and the hill die from Heart Fence and Hill die to create my grass and land. I used Key Lime cardstock for this and also ink blended the edges using the same ink. I then die cut all these elements using the Pierced Circles cutting plate die. I had some left over Layer It Toadstools from a previous project so I decided to use them here! Then, I stamped On the Block Mom using a litter shade of ink and then colored on top using colored pencils and alcohol markers. For my critters, I used Max and Mille and Love from Max and Mille. Finally, I added a sentiment from Mini Strips - You're the Best by heat embossing it on some Candy Corn cardstock!
