Lawn Fawn – Meow You Doin’?

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS friendship card featuring the Lawn Fawn Meow You Doin’ stamp set.

Lawn Fawn Meow You Doin'?

I stamped and colored the images with Copic markers. My family had a Siamese cat named “Cocoa” when I was young (we’ve since had many other cats of varying breeds). These images are fun because you can color the cats as any number of breeds.

I added the cats and their accessories to a background dry-embossed with a Taylored Expressions folder.

Penny Black Simplicity – Colorful CAS Die-cut Fish

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a card featuring Penny Black products from the BLISS 2017 release. Using one of the dies in the 51-314 Fancy Fish set, I cut two fish (reversing the cardstock for the second fish). I colored the fish with a variety of Distress Inks. I backed the die cuts with solid white cardstock and used Nuvo drops for the eyes.

I placed the fish on a card background colored with Distress Ink using a Clarity stencil brush. I used a sentiment from 30-419 Happy Wishes and clear droplets to finish this CAS card.

Taylored Expressions March 2017 Release

Hello! Welcome to the Taylored Expressions March 2017 Release! All of the products that we have been sharing this week on projects are now available in the TE store!

Before you head off to shop, I’ve got two more projects to share! My first card showcases the new Sitting Pretty set.

TE March 2017 Release

The Mini Caps Alpha & #’s fit perfectly inside this set’s frames. I created a birthday card with the set, using the age of “29” since that’s an age many people say they are (after passing that age!).

My final card combines Little Bits – House with a sentiment from There’s No Place Like Home for a CAS card which could be used for a number of occasions.

Welcome Home – Taylored Expressions March 2017 Release Day Two

Hello! Welcome to Day Two of the Taylored Expressions March Sneak Peeks. This month’s products will be released Thursday, March 9 @ 7 AM PST!

My first card showcases the Little Bits – Cottage die in a CAS Welcome Home card.

TE March 2017 Release

Isn’t this a sweet cottage?! I added die-cut grass and flowers behind the cottage using the Home Sweet Home Accessories set along with the Build a Scene – Farm Fence. To create the background, I applied ink with one of the Clarity Stencil Brushes through a cardstock stencil I created with the Ray of Sunshine Cutting Plate. I added a sentiment from the There’s No Place Like Home set.

TE March 2017 Release

I’m sharing another home-themed card – this one combines a number of products in the March 2017 release with the previously released Eventful – In the Kitchen.

TE March 2017 Release

I imagined a subway-tiled kitchen, created with the Subway Tiles embossing folder. I accessorized with the Sitting Pretty Accessories and Sitting Pretty sets – my imaginary scene makes me want to incorporate more plants into my in real life kitchen. The There’s No Place Like Home sentiment was head embossed on the cardstock cut with the Eventful – In the Kitchen die. I used a Stitched Heart Stacklets to cover up the “O” in “HOME”.

Today, I’m sharing cards combining die cuts and sentiments. This month’s released is packed with fabulous and creative dies!

TE March 2017 Release

My first card features the Sitting Pretty Accessories resting on the shelf in the Sitting Pretty set. I used a sentiment from Flowers for a Year which I stamped on a rectangle cut with a die in the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets set. I dry-embossed the card base with the Woodgrain embossing folder.

My second card features another one of this month’s fun and unique die sets – Spin Cycle!

TE March 2017 Release

Although my washing machine is white, I’ve long admired red washing machines and dryers (and they are on my dream home list). Given that papercrafting is one way in which I create my dream world, I decided to make a red washing machine! I paired the assembled machine with a heat-embossed sentiment from Spin Cycle Sentiments and accessories from Little Bits – Laundry BasketLittle Bits – Clothing Confetti and Sitting Pretty. There are a lot of possibilities with this set, and you’ll see a number of interpretations from the design team.

Penny Black Simplicity – A Day of Loveliness

Today, I’m sharing a CAS friendship card created with Penny Black supplies.

Penny Black Simplicity 40-469 Hydrangea

I stamped the 40-469 Hydrangea image using different colors of Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Shaded Lilac, Salty Ocean; I combined inks on the stamp before stamping) three times, rotating the image each time.

I stamped a sentiment from 30-353 Words of Kindness and added butterflies cut from cardstock, to which I’d applied Distress Inks, with a die in the 51-132 Flights of Fancy set.

I hope you’ll head over to the Penny Black Simplicity blog where I am sharing a different take with the 40-469 Hydrangea stamp.

Hoot Hoot Hooray

Hello! Today I’m sharing a CAS birthday card created with Taylored Expressions supplies. I’m always in need of birthday cards, no matter what the season.

Taylored Expression Hoot Hoot Hooray

The Hoot Hoot Hooray stamp & die combo makes for quick card making!
I stamped the images and colored them with Copic markers. I used the Clarity Brushes to apply Distress Inks on a watercolor panel, on to which
I stamped the sentiment. I added a frame cut with the Stitched Frame Stacklets 1 set for visual interest. I cut the images with their coordinating frames and added them to the scene with foam adhesive. I attached a piece of Woodgrain Textured cardstock to the card base for the background.

Penny Black Simplicity – Sunny Wishes

Hello! Today I’m sharing a CAS friendship card created with Penny Black supplies. It was so relaxing to watercolor bright flowers given the rain and overcast we’ve been experiencing here in the Pacific Northwest.

PB Simplicity Sunny Wishes

I stamped and heat-embossed one of the images from the 30-346 Perfect Pairing stamp set on Arches watercolor paper and colored it with Zig brushes and Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. After the panel was dry, I stamped a sentiment from 30-344 Sunny Wishes and adhered the panel to an A2 card base.

Penny Black Simplicity – Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hello! Today I’m sharing a CAS Valentine created with Penny Black supplies. This postman hedgehog is making his rounds with Valentines!

Penny Black Simplicity CAS Valentine

I stamped the hedgehog image, from the 30-271 Share A Hug stamp set, on watercolor paper and colored it with a variety of mediums, including watercolor pencils, Zig markers and Distress inks. I cut a frame for the image from patterned paper in my stash. I die-cut the sentiment, from the 51-284 Filled With Love set, twice for extra depth. I added the sentiment to the frame with foam adhesive.
