A2 vs Mini Slim Cards!

by - May 04, 2021


Hi folks, 

While Taylored Expressions has no new products to release this week, the DT has worked on some inspiring projects to show you how some previously released products can be used to create both A2 and Mini Slim sized cards! Stretching your supplies to create any sized cards? Sign me up! 

If any of the main products that the TE Creative Team used on their project has caught your eye, we are making a selection of them available to you for 30% off through this Sunday, May 9th or while supplies last. Here are the sets included in the sale:

I have been in a creative rut lately... I decided to make some changes to my 'cardmaking life' and one of the changes is to spend more time learning new skills! I can never color well using just alcohol markers so I decided to invest in some brush markers and this is my first card made using just these markers (no colored pencils whatsoever)! Definitely not great but I am happy that I am expanding my skills! I plan to enroll in some online classes by Sandy Allnock too so let's see how that goes :) 

I will be showcasing the Treetops background stamp and Swinging By critters! This card is relatively simple to put together. I first started off by coloring the treetop and other critters using just alcohol markers. As it is a night sky, I tried using darker shades of colors. Then, I ink blended the background using Blueberry, Blue corn and Mint Julep inks. I masked a circle while inking and I later tried coloring it using alcohol markers to make it look like a moon! Finally, I added some grass by using the Build A Scene - Grassy Hills Die and some Cilantro cardstock. Like always, ink blended the edges of the die cut using Cilantro and Poblano Pepper and splattered some paint! Adhered all these elements and added a sentiment from On Repeat - Birthday (Yes, I still have the ones from last September - Love having pre cut sentiments nearby!) to finish it off!
