I stamped the leaf on Sugar Cube cardstock with Distress Oxide Fired Brick ink. I cut the frame from Mocha cardstock with a die in the Stitched Frame Stacklets 1 set. To add color, I used Playful Patterns – Harvest patterned paper card base and Harvest Sequins.

Taylored Expressions – Happy Halloween

Hello! Today, I am sharing a CAS Halloween card created with Taylored Expressions products.

Taylored Expressions Halloween Die-cuts

To begin, I colored Sugar Cube cardstock with Distress Oxide Inks in Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade and stamped the Simply Said – Halloween sentiment with Archival ink over the inks. I cut a circle from a Plum Punch cardstock rectangle, which I dry-embossed with the Weathered embossing folder to add some texture. Around the sentiment, I added die-cuts cut with the sets: Sitting Pretty Halloween AccessoriesHaunted Accessories, and Little Bits – Ornate Frame.

Hello! Welcome to the Taylored Expressions September 2017 Release! All of the products that we have been sharing this week are now available in the TE store! I hope you have enjoyed the projects and festivities this past week!

Taylored Expressions September 2017 Release

I cut the sentiment and applied the Picked Raspberry ink to the die-cut with one of the Clarity Stencil Brushes. I heat-embossed the Peek-a-Boo Birthday sentiment on the Build a Cake piece (masking the Happy from the sentiment). I placed the assembled cake in front of an area to which I added Distress Oxide Broken China ink. For texture and color, I added Nuvo White Crystal Drops to the candles and TE Sequins – Hello Happiness to the card base.

I stamped and watercolored the images from Lookin’ Sharp Stamp & Die Combo. Once dry, I cut the images with their coordinating dies. I cut a ledge with Sitting Pretty which I shortened to fit the space. I applied the Broken China Distress Oxide ink behind the area where the cacti would be placed. The punny sentiment was cut with a die in the Banner Stacklets 4 set.

I combined cardstock pieces cut with dies in the Home Sweet Home (house, windows, roof, chimney), Sack It – Haunted House (shutters, door, ghost, and gable trim), and Home Sweet Home Accessories (curtains) sets to create the house. I covered the window above the door with an assembled Little Bits – Ornate Frame. I used the Spooky Fence Border die to cut the fence.

It’s been quite hot here in the Pacific Northwest, so it was fun to think about the fall days ahead, and watercoloring these panels was relaxing!
