Taylored Expressions May 2017 Release – Day Three Sneak Peeks

Hello! Welcome to Day Three of the Taylored Expressions May Sneak Peeks. This month’s release features a variety of products appropriate for Father’s Day, masculine and little boy projects, and 4th of July! Products will be in the store tomorrow – Thursday, May 4 @ 7 AM PST!

My first project is a Father’s Day card.

I cut the Little Bits – Tools from Metallic Neutrals cardstock and other colors (for the handles) adding the assembled tools to a card base on which I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Said – Dad set. I added Block Party – Dad and a frame cut with Frame in Frame Cutting Plate. The card base was dry-embossed with the Plaid folder to reinforce the masculine theme.

My second project is a masculine notecard set showcasing the Gunny Sack Background stamp.

I stamped both Sugar Cube and Toffee cardstock with the Gunny Sack Background stamp, using four different TE ink colors – Pumpkin, Sweet Basil, Blue Corn and Chocolate Truffle. I die cut the Initially M from cardstock in those same colors (twice for each card for extra depth). For the Sugar Cube cards, I paired the initials with different colors than the background colors; the Blue Corn initial with the Pumpkin background, for example. For the Toffee cards, I paired initials with the same colors as the background colors. To package the gift set, I used the Simply Said – Dad with the Noteworthy Belly Band and Clear Card Box.

  1. Jean your work is great! I love the card set with the monogram. That gunny sack stamp is really something. I have a male friend who is really hard to shop for. But, he still is working and could definitely use a set like this for personal use. I just love these. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Wonderful masculine projects. The first card is such a classic Dad card. My Dad is very handy with tools, though his profession was numbers. Your card set is spot on as well.

  3. What fabulous cards!! LOVE the first card with the fun die cuts but the little collection of cards is my favorite. That background rocks!
