Lawn Fawn Flamingo Hello

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a Hello card created with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.

Lawn Fawn Flamingo Together

I stamped and colored the Flamingo Together images with Copic markers. I added the colored flamingos, cut with their corresponding dies, to a panel on which I combined Distress Inks using the Claritystamp Brushes. I cut the letters with Cole’s ABCs from white cardstock and foam.

To finish off the card, I used a die in the Scalloped Rectangle Stackables set to create a flirty frame which I felt went well with the feminine theme of the card.

Penny Black Simplicity – It’s the Little Things

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a bright CAS card, suited for a variety of occasions, featuring a combination of Penny Black dies.

Penny Black Simplicity It's the Little Things

I cut the sentiment with the 51-340 Dream Big die several times for additional depth. I cut the fish with the 51-314 Fancy Fish die from a variety of cardstock colors. I used an embossing folder for the waves peeking out through the hole.

Taylored Expressions Spring Owl Love Card

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a spring-themed love card (appropriate for a variety of recipients) created with a combination of Taylored Expressions stamps and dies.

Taylored Expressions Owl Card

I cut the Shade Tree Cutting Plate from Toffee cardstock and trimmed it to fit inside the frame, which I cut with a die in the Stitched Frame Stacklets 1 set. I placed the Little Bits – Owl in the tree, after adding leaves cut with On a Limb – Leaves from two shades of green cardstock. I don’t typically use a lot of purple in my paper crafting, but I really like how the purple goes with the green.

To ground the scene, I added a strip of grass cut with the Grass Border die. The sentiment is from the Hoot Hoot Hooray stamp & die combo.

Taylored Expressions CAS Mother’s Day Card

Hello! I’m sharing a CAS Mother’s Day card created with Taylored Expressions products.

TE CAS Mother's Day Card

Not only CAS, this card was quick to make. I stamped the Notable Blooms Background with Sugar Cube ink on Lollipop cardstock and cut it with a die in the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets set. I cut the letters with the Initially M and Initially O dies from Sugar Cube cardstock and foam (for additional depth).

Penny Black Simplicity – Build-a-House Hello

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS “Hello”card featuring a combination of Penny Black dies including 51-303 Build a House.

Penny Black Simplicity

To begin, I stamped the background stamp 40-310 Star Ivy with pigment ink. While it was drying, I cut the 51-303 Build a House pieces from cardstock and assembled them with Ranger Multi Medium Matte glue. I cut the sentiment from the 51-040 Hello Frame set twice, for extra depth, which I also assembled with the Ranger glue. I cut the background with a rectangular die and circle die at the same time. I cut the fence from the 51-073 Haunted Hollow die set and placed it behind the houses in the scene. After assembling the scene I added a cloud cut with the smallest die in the 51-033 Silver Linings set.

Penny Black Simplicity

Recently, I shared another card created with the 51-303 Build a House set on the Penny Black Simplicity site. I hope you’ll head over there and check it out.

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.

Taylored Expressions May 2017 Release

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.
