Lawn Fawn Foxes

Hello! Today, I am sharing a CAS “just because” card created with a combination of Lawn Fawn products.

Lawn Fawn Fox Family

I stamped the fox images from Mom + Me, colored them with Copic markers, and cut them with their corresponding dies.

I recently bought a rainbow pack of Lawn Fawn cardstock, along with several packages of neutrals. I cut the card base from Paper Bag cardstock using the Woodgrain Backdrop. I cut the background for the scene from Mermaid cardstock using the Cloud Backdrop. (I absolutely love these backdrop dies!) I then used a square die to cut the cloud piece to the size I needed. I cut the grass from Noble Fir cardstock with one of the Meadow Borders dies and the same square die. I framed the scene with white cardstock cut with a die in the Outside In Stitched Scalloped Square Stackables set. I heat-embossed the sentiment on Black Licorice cardstock and cut it with a die in the Extra Sentiment Banners set.

Lawn Fawn CAS Valentine

Hello and Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m sharing a CAS Valentine’s card created with Lawn Fawn supplies.

Lawn Fawn CAS Valentine

I stamped and colored the birds and envelope from Love Letters, and cut the items with their corresponding dies. I stamped the sentiment on to the white cardstock base and added panels cut from Lawn Fawn cardstock with the Woodgrain Backdrop die. I added hearts cut with the Taylored Expressions Little Bits – Hearts die.

Floral Thanks

Hello! No matter the season, it’s good to have Thank You cards on hand. Having just returned from a vacation in Southern California, I am drawn towards bright colors at the moment.

Floral Thanks

 

I used the Spellbinders Daisy and Daisy 2 dies to cut the blooms from Memory Box cardstock. The sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp Thankful Heart set. I applied Tumbled Glass Distress Ink under the blooms with a stencil brush.

Taylored Expressions February 2018 Release Day

Hello! Welcome to the Taylored Expressions February 2018 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 have several more spring- and Easter-themed projects to show you.

My first project features the Floral Frame Cutting Plate paired with the Floral Frenzy stamps and dies.

Taylored Expressions February 2018 Release

I cut the plate and colored it with inks in various colors, masking pieces of the frame as I worked (including the outside edge). I stamped the Floral Frenzy sentiment and cut it out with the Floral Frame Cutting Plate so that it would fit inside the center. I added a few Floral Frenzy blooms and foliage cut with the Mini Bloomers and Bloomers Greenery die sets.

Taylored Expressions February 2018 Release

Supplies:

I created two CAS cards with the Quick Critters – Spring Stamp & Die Combo using the same design for both.

Taylored Expressions February 2018 Release

The card bases are patterned paper from the Playful Patterns – Sweet pack. I used the Cloud Nine Background to create the sky behind the animals, cutting it and the Build a Scene – Grassy Hills with one of the Egg Stacklets dies to reinforce the Easter theme.

Taylored Expressions February 2018 Release

I dry-embossed the Potato Chip cardstock rectangle with the Flower Power embossing folder.

I heat-embossed the sentiments on Lollipop cardstock and used one of the dies in the Banner Stacklets 1 set to cut them out.

Taylored Expressions Feb 2018 Release – Flower Power

Hello! Welcome to Day 3 of the Taylored Expressions February 2018 Release Sneak Peeks. The spring- and Easter-themed  products which I have been sneaking will be released  tomorrow – Thursday, February 8 @ 7 AM PST!

My first project showcases the new Floral Frenzy set with corresponding dies. At the end of the post, you will find details about a promotion for the Floral Frenzy stamps and dies.

Taylored Expressions Feb 2018 Release

The Floral Frenzy set includes solid and detail stamp images. I stamped the floral solids first in a variety of ink colors and then followed with the detail image in Oreo ink. I cut the blossoms and leaves with their corresponding dies. For the background, using the Clarity Stencil Brushes, I added Potato Chip ink from the top and Sprinkles ink from the bottom. I then stamped the sentiment with Oreo ink. I laid out the bouquet and then using the Press ’N Seal technique to pick the floral pieces up off the background. I added adhesive to the backs of the die-cuts and then placed the bouquet back down.

Supplies:

For my second project today, I have created a fireplace scene decorated for spring with the Sitting Pretty – Spring Accessories set.

Taylored Expressions February 2018 Release

I cut the Sitting Pretty – Spring Accessories pieces from cardstock in a variety of spring-inspired colors and assembled them with Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I dry-embossed the Salt Water Taffy background with the Bead Board embossing folder and added a strip of the Playful Patterns – Sweet paper at the base. I die-cut the Welcome Spring Banner and one of the Skinny Mini Spring Borders to decorate the front of the mantel (and serve as the card’s sentiment).

Taylored Expressions Feb 2018 Release – Rain or Shine

Hello! Welcome to Day 2 of the Taylored Expressions February 2018 Release Sneak Peeks. The spring- and Easter-themed  products will be released Thursday, February 8 @ 7 AM PST!

For my first project, I created an encouragement/friendship card combining die-cuts, new and old, and a fabulous sentiment from Rain or Shine.

Taylored Expressions Feb 2018 Release

I colored Sugar Cube cardstock with a variety of TE inks to create the colors of the rainbow, which I cut with the Rainbow Cutting Plate. I used the Raindrops embossing folder to add texture to panels in the upper-right and lower-left corners. I cut the When It Rains umbrella from Oreo cardstock and inked cardstock. I stamped the Rain or Shine sentiment and then cut it with the one of the Build-a-Scene Rolling Clouds dies. I also added clouds cut with the Stitched Cloud Duo.

Taylored Expressions Feb 2018 Release

Supplies:

For my second project, I created cards with the 3 x 4 Watercolor Panels – Easter set and a decorated envelope.

Taylored Expressions Feb 2018 Release

I watercolored this sweet scene from the set, and added Cookie Monster ink around the edges before attaching the panel to a card base on which I used the Playful Patterns – Sweet patterned paper.

Taylored Expressions Feb 2018 Release

Similarly, I colored the Happy Easter panel to which I added Pretty Pastels sequins for texture.

To create the card base, I stamped Petite Petals background with Lemon Meringue ink on Potato Chip cardstock.

Taylored Expressions Feb 2018 Release

I stamped an envelope with several of the images in the Happy Mail set and colored with colored pencils.

Taylored Expressions Feb 2018 Release – Bunny Hop

Hello! Welcome to Day 1 of the Taylored Expressions February 2018 Release Sneak Peeks. This spring- and Easter-themed release is filled with new goodies! Mark the date – the products will be released Thursday, February 8 @ 7 AM PST!

My first card features the Block Party – Bunnies die paired with the Little Bits – Marshmallow Bunny die and a sentiment from the Squishy Hugs set.

Taylored Expressions Feb 2018 Release

I cut the Block Party – Bunnies three times to create a panel on to which I added the bunnies cut with the Little Bits – Marshmallow Bunny die. I cut a frame with a die in the Frame in Frame Cutting Plate set to cover the edges. I heat-embossed the fun Squishy Hugs sentiment and added it to the bottom of the frame. The card base was covered with one of the fun patterns in the new patterned paper package Playful Patterns – Sweet.

Taylored Expressions Feb 2018 Release

Supplies:

My second project today uses the Bunny Pop die to dress up lip balm. I have several variations. Let’s take a look!

Taylored Expressions Feb 2018 Release

My first version shows the simplest way to use the die for lipbalm packaging. I simply cut the bunnies out of colored cardstock and the scallop piece from Sugar Cube cardstock.

You can also stamp cardstock with a background stamp, which I did with Happy Flowers, or dry-emboss the cardstock, as I did with the On the Spot folder.

Taylored Expressions Feb 2018 Release

I also used the Playful Patterns – Sweet patterned paper to create the bunnies.

Taylored Expressions Feb 2018 Release

Finally, I stamped a sentiment from the Quick Critters – Spring Stamp & Die Combo to show how easy it is to add a sentiment.

Happy Birthday – Simon Says Stamp Picture Book Animals

Hello! Today, I am sharing a birthday card created with four of the Simon Says Stamp Picture Book Animals – Cat, Bear, Panda, and Dog.

Simon Says Stamp Picture Book Animals

After die-cutting and assembling the animals, I inked a panel with several Distress Oxide inks and cut it with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Cloud Backdrop for the background. I inked another panel and cut it with one of the Arched Stitching Borders. The arched border covers the bottoms of the animals. I stamped the border with a sentiment in the Lawn Fawn Grand Greetings set (now retired).

I can’t wait to create another card with one (or more) of the Picture Book Animals!

Simon Says Stamp LOVE Release

Hello! Today, I’m delighted to be sharing a CAS friendship/encouragement card created with the Simon Says Stamp Happy Clouds die as part of their LOVE release!

Simon Says Stamp Love Release

Simon Says Stamp Happy Clouds

I die-cut the Happy Clouds and backed them with black cardstock. I added a little color to the cheeks of two of the clouds with a Copic marker. I set those aside and stamped the sentiment from the You Got This set (lots of great sentiments for all sorts of occasions) on to a inked panel, (created with Distress  Oxide inks in Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, and Peacock Feathers). Before adding the clouds to the panel, I applied BoBunny Sugar Glitter Paste to the background through the smallest raindrops on the Raindrops stencil.

Simon Says Stamp Happy Clouds

Once the raindrops were dry, I added the clouds, popping up two of them with foam adhesive. For subtle texture, the card base was die-cut with the Stitched Woodgrain Backdrop.

Thanks for visiting today!

Taylored Expressions – Friendship Die-cut Card

Hello! Today, I am sharing a CAS friendship card, right for any season, featuring die-cut fish from the Roly Poly – Fish set paired with a sentiment from Roly Poly Sentiments.

Taylored Expressions Friendship Die-cut Card

To begin, I stamped the card base with Cookie Monster ink with the Striped Background. I die-cut the Roly Poly – Fish from Potato Chip and Candy Corn cardstock. The sentiment was heat-embossed on a square panel, to which I added the porthole, cut with dies in the Stitched Circle Stacklets set, and the fish. Thanks for visiting today!
