Easy Strips + Much more from TE!

by - January 18, 2022


Hi folks, 

I am back on the blog with another fun release from TE! This time, Taylor is releasing some products from Stamp Joy and a bunch of monthly freebies with new coordinating products. So let's get started? 

My first card uses something that I have been waiting for Taylor to release for months! Strip Dies! I love creating my own stripped backgrounds, so this makes it so much easier. For my first card, I decided to paper weave! I can't remember the last time I did this. Probably 4th grade? But it's so much fun to do it as an adult too LOL! I first started off by die cutting strips in in size 1/8th using gold card stock and 1/4th using Lollipop, Candy Corn, Pineapple, Granny Smith and Cookie Monster. I then weaved them by leaving some space in between for some extra drama! You will notice that the weaving isn't even especially with the gold strips. This is because I decided to add the gold strips after weaving the colored cardstock as I felt that it was missing something, and I was too lazy to redo the weaving. Nevertheless, I think it turned out well. Later, I added a border using toffee cardstock and Stitched Framed Stacklets 1. Finally, I added heat embossed sentiments from Love & Hugs and Mini Strips - Watt's Up?

Supply List:

My next card uses the Bold Branches coordinating stamp and die. I first started off by stamping and coloring different leaves from the set. For the thin foliage, I hear embossed it directly on Blueberry cardstock using gold embossing powder. As I didn't want the white border around the stamped images, I colored the outline using blue copic marker and added extra details using a gold gel pen. Then, I prepared the base by ink blending the edges of Blueberry cardstock using blue corn ink and splattered some gold paint using Gansai Tambi Starry colors set. Finally, I added a sentiment from Love & Hugs and added some gorgeous gold drops to finish off the card! 

Supply List:

My last card is quite simple to recreate. I started off by creating a striped background using leftover strips from my first card (no particular pattern here!). Then, I ink blended the balloons using Lollipop, Jelly Donut, Candy Corn, Pineapple, Cookie Monster and Granny Smith dye inks. I used the same inks to stamp the insides of the balloons and the stems using the coordinating stamp set. Then, I splattered some more fold, silver and pearl drops using the new Gansai Tambi starry colors set! Finally, added a sentiment from Mini Strips - Donut Worry.

Supply List:

That's it folks! 

Happy Crafting,
