TE Feb 2017 Release

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.

TE Feb 2017 Release

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.

Easter Wishes – Taylored Expressions Feb 2017 Release Sneak Peeks Day Three

Hello! Welcome to Day Three of the Taylored Expressions February Sneak Peeks. The Easter and Spring season products we have been sneaking this week will be released tomorrow – Thursday, February 9 @ 7 AM PST!

Today I’m sharing two cards created entirely with die-cuts. My first card showcases the Eventful – Bunny Border.

TE Feb 2017 Release

I used a variety of Taylored Expressions dies to create the layers on the card. I created the sentiment with the Easter Wishes Banner. I chose to leave the bunnies white and place them in a scene with a lot of color. However, there are lots of ways one could use this die set – color the die-cut with Copic markers or watercolors or cut it into two pieces and insert those pieces into a die-cut scene.

TE Feb 2017 Release

Supplies (items in bold will be released February 9):

For my second project, I created an Easter basket on to which I added the die-cut Easter Wishes Banner sentiment.

TE Feb 2017 Release

I filled a basket created with the Wicker Pocket die with eggs cut with the Egg Stacklets set and dry-embossed with the Loopy Loops and On the Spot folders.

My first project features the You’re in my Prayers stamp set.

TE Feb 2017 Release

I combined the stamped sentiment (there are several options on the set) with a floral bouquet created with Spring Florals and Bloomin’ Birthday Stamp & Die Combo. I used Lemon Meringue Enamel Shapes for the flower centers. (At the end of this post, I have information on a promotion of the Enamel Shapes.)

Supplies (items in bold will be released February 9):

My Easter card combines the Little Bits – Crosses set with a sentiment from He Is Risen.

Welcome Spring! – Taylored Expressions Feb 2017 Release Sneak Peeks Day One

Hello! Welcome to Day One of the Taylored Expressions February Sneak Peeks. This release is all about Easter and Spring! (As I write, there is snow falling outside and a winter weather advisory in effect – I’m ready for some warmer weather!) The products we are sneaking will be released Thursday, February 9 @ 7 AM PST!

My first card is a watercolored panel stamped with the Bloomin’ Background and a sentiment from Simply Said – Spring.

TE Feb 2017 Release

I stamped the background and sentiment on TE Premium Watercolor Cardstock and colored the image with watercolors in the Kuretake Gansai Tambi – 24 set. It was so relaxing to color in this image and I look forward to a change of seasons!

TE Feb 2017 Release

Taylored Expressions – February 2017 Calendar

Hello! Today, I’m sharing my February 2017 calendar created with Taylored Expressions supplies.

TE February 2017 Calendar

As it is cold and overcast here in the Pacific Northwest, this colorful floral image from the Flowers for a Year set makes me especially happy!
I colored the image with Copic markers and colored pencils, pairing it with elements cut from patterned paper in my stash with the Build a Scene – Calendar 2 set.

Taylored Expressions – Love Bug

Hello! I’m sharing a CAS Valentine’s Day card featuring Taylored Expressions products.

TE Love Bug

I paired the On the Road – Beetle (in red of course!) with a background created with the Cloud Nine Background. The sentiment is from the Go Beep set. While this card doesn’t scream masculine, it certainly could be sent to a guy.

Rainbows & Elephants: Taylored Expressions January 2017 Release

Hello! Welcome to the Taylored Expressions January 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 showcases the Rainbow Cutting Plate.

TE Jan 2017 Release

I love bright colors! To create the rainbow, I used the die to cut the frame from Sugar Cube cardstock and then from each of the rainbow colors. As I cut each color, I added the arcs to the frame from the back and secured the pieces with tape. I stamped the sentiment and cut it with the larger die in the Stitched Cloud Duo set. To finish out the scene, I added boots and an umbrella, as well as a background created with this release’s Cloud Nine Background stamp.

TE Jan 2017 Release

Supplies:

My final project combines Let’s Talk Edger 3  with the Hello Script die.

TE Jan 2017 Release

The Let’s Talk Edger 3  is open-ended, making it possible to cut any number of different talk bubbles. I cut the “hello” from cardstock, as well as from foam, adhering the two together for a little extra depth. I added the sentiment from Give me a Sign. The Elephant Parade was added to a background dry-embossed with the Kaleidoscope folder.

Hello! Welcome to Day One of the Taylored Expressions January Sneak Peeks. Mark your calendar, the January products will be released Thursday, January 12 @ 7 AM PST!

Both of my cards today feature new Stamp & Die Combo sets. Let’s start with a happy and bright “Hello” featuring the Bloomin’ Birthday Stamp & Die Combo.

The “wish” was stamped and colored with Copic markers, then cut with its companion die. To finish off the card, I added a frame and stars cut from silver cardstock in the Metallic Neutrals pack.
