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.
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.
Hello! Today, I’m sharing another “just because” card, this one is created with Taylored Expressions supplies.
I stamped the Simply Succulents images and colored them with Copics markers. I used their corresponding dies to cut them out. I used the large Clarity brush to apply the Sprinkles ink to the Watercolor cardstock, which I cut with the largest die in the Stitched Rectangles Stacklets set. I dry-embossed the card base with the Herringbone folder.
Hello! Today I’m sharing a spring-themed “just because” card created with Lawn Fawn supplies.
I stamped the images from Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends and colored them with Copics. I placed the colored images, which I cut with their corresponding dies, in a scene created with the Lawn Cuts Meadow Borders and one of the dies in the Lawn Cuts Stitched Hillside Border set onto which I had heat-embossed the sentiment.
The sun is out here in the Pacific Northwest and I’m thinking about spring!
Hello! Welcome to the Taylored Expressions February 2017 Release! All of the products that we have been sharing this week are now available in the TE store!
Before you head off to shop, I’ve got two more projects to share! My first card combines a wreath created with the Spring Florals set and the Lattice Frame Cutting Plate.
I created a wreath with the Spring Florals set to which I added a few blossoms from the Fresh Florals set. I used Lemon Meringue Enamel Shapes on the centers of many of the blossoms. There is a promotion on both the Spring Florals set and the Lattice Frame Cutting Plate. I have details at the end of this post.
Spring is one of my favorite times of year! And spring showers do bring flowers – I’m looking forward to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival here in the Pacific Northwest. My final card combines a die-cut Blessed Script sentiment with the Rainboot Bouquet image.
I stamped the Rainboot Bouquet image and colored it with Copic markers. I cut the Blessed Script sentiment twice, adhering the pieces together for added depth. The die cut pairs with the So Very Blessed stamp set.

Hello! I’m sharing a spring-themed card created with Avery Elle stamps and dies. It’s been cold and wintry here in the Pacific Northwest, so a little spring color appealed to me!
I stamped the various critters from Woodland Wonders and colored them with Copic markers. I used components from the Tree die set to create the tree, which I dry-embossed with a Stampin’ Up embossing folder. I curved the sentiment to fit one of the banner dies in the Pierced Banner Layers set. When I was finished assembling the scene, I felt there was too much blank sky, so I tucked in clouds cut with the Lawn Fawn Simple Puffy Cloud Frames set.
Hello! Welcome to Day Three of the Taylored Expressions January Sneak Peeks. The products we have been sneaking will be released tomorrow – Thursday, January 12 @ 7 AM PST!
My first project showcases another new Stamp & Die Combo set – Llama Love.
I stamped and Copic-colored the llama. There are multiple expressions you can use for this stamp! The sentiment was stamped and cut with the new Stitched Cloud Duo set.
Supplies (items in bold will be released January 12):
My second project showcases the Give me a Sign stamp set. The set features six cute critters and a number of sentiment possibilities!
I stamped three of the critters and fussy-cut them. I used the new Cloud Nine Background stamp, along with die cuts, to finish out the scene.
Supplies (items in bold will be released January 12):

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a holiday card featuring the adorable Taylored Expressions Elf Grumplings. Who hasn’t felt like going on strike during this time of year once or twice?
I stamped and Copic-colored the elves, adding them to a CAS card design on which I combined patterned paper (from my stash) and packages created with the All Wrapped Up die.
Hello and Happy Monday. We’re in the final countdown to Christmas, and I’m sharing a holiday tag created with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.
This tag would be easy to make in bulk using the same design with the Stitched Mountain Borders and Stitched Circle Tags varying the critters from Toboggan Together and other sets (I really appreciate how well the Lawn Fawn critters work together!). I added texture to the tag with a Simon Says Stamp snowflake stencil.
Hello. Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card featuring Taylored Expressions Santa’s Helpers.
I followed a tutorial by Michele Boyer on the Taylored Expressions blog to Copic-color these cute images. Once I had Santa’s helpers colored, I created the rest of the holiday scene with Dashing Through the Snow, Jolly Old St. Nick (I used only part of the die-cut), Build a Scene – Rolling Hills and a heat-embossed sentiment from In & Out Christmas.
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a card showcasing the Lawn Fawn Happy Howlidays stamp set, which was a Simon Says Stamp set for their Stamptember event. I paired the Copic-colored dogs with two Lawn Fawn die sets.
I cut the Little Town Border from white cardstock and backed the openings with yellow cardstock. I cut the Stitched Mountain Borders from the Earl Grey cardstock. I used a Simon Says Stamp stencil to create the snowflakes. It took me a few minutes to gather my embossing paste and related supplies, but I’m glad I did, as the backgroud needed some texture (and I plan to do more stenciling this season).
I’m joining this week’s Merry Monday Christmas Challenge.
