Amy_In the Kitchen2

Black Friday is upon us and Taylored Expressions has some AMAZING deals that start now!  
Taylored Expressions has quite a "reputation" for some of the best crafty deals during Black Friday.


I'm sharing the newest Triple Slim Stencils called In the Kitchen.  This has got to be my favorite stencil set to DATE!  I am a HUGE thrifter and garage sale queen and lover of anything vintage!  Vintage Pyrex (which is hard to find in the wild from sales or thrift stores which is my favorite way to find them) has some of the best MCM (Mid Centry Modern) graphics!

Avery Elle / Conversation Hearts

I'm here today to share some Conversation Hearts with you!  Conversation Hearts have always been one of my favorites.  

Conversation Hearts2

I created some Conversation Heart banners.  They were white heat embossed, colored using emboss resist, and die cut using coordinating die.  A panel was die cut using the Pierced Rounded Frames Elle-ments,  very lightly ink blended with ink left over on my blue brush, and the sentiment was stamped at the bottom.  The hearts were adhered with foam adhesive over a thin twine "string".  I added tiny twine bows to the edges of the banners.  This panel was adhered to another panel that had some Bright Rainbow Washi Tape adhered to the bottom.

Avery Elle / Winter Release Blog Hop

I am so excited because the Winter 2023 Release from Avery Elle is finally here!!  We have an amazing blog hop full of inspiration today and we are so glad that you are here. 

For a summary of all of the new products that are available for purchase right now check out this section in the store .  We will be showcasing projects using our new sets starting today and will continue to show them throughout the next few months.  

Everyday Cake2

I'm sharing the Everyday Cake stamp and matching die set.  While this die lends itself to creating a shaker card, I took this a different direction.  The cake image was white heat embossed onto white paper and ink blended featuring emboss resist.  Tucked behind the white panel, the new Bright Rainbow Washi Tape was added to either side.  White pearls rounded the card off.

Taylored Expressions / Snow Crystals Kit

Amy_Snow Crystals_6

It's snow time for the newest kit from Taylored Expressions called 
Snow Crystals! ❄❆❅

Snowflakes are unique and utterly beautiful.  This kit has everything you need to create your own Snow Crystal cards!

Amy_Snow Crystals_2

There are foiling cards in this kit and my snowflake background card was done using Iridescent Deco Foil.  Over the top of the foiling, ink (Confetti Cake and Plum Punch) was blended in the lower left corner and upper right corner.  Coordinating cardstock was used to back the sentiment strip across the center.  Behind the sentiment strip, a single snowflake die cut was added.

My second card uses another foiled panel done in silver.

Along the edges, the snowflakes were white heat embossed and then colored using the emboss resist technique.  They were die cut and added to the outside edge of a panel that was decorated using the Diagonal Stitch Rectangle Stacklets.

Taylored Expressions / From the Heart Release

We have a special release from Taylored Expressions today called "From the Heart".

This release covers encouragement, remembrance, and sympathy.  These are never easy cards to make but at least with these products, you can create a seamless card in minutes.

My cards focus on loss and sympathy.  

Amy-Artistic Branch

This first card uses the Artistic Branch Stamp and Stencil.  I started with stamping my branch (in my Misti and then leaving it there) in Sea Salt ink so I could ink blend.  After ink blending with my chosen colors, my cardstock was placed back into the Misti and the branch outline was stamped in black ink.  The coordinating die was used to cut out the branch.  

Amy-Artistic Branch3

The branch was added to a trimmed panel die cut using the Pierced Circles Cutting Plate.  The piercing in the background gives just the right amount of texture!

My second card uses the Set the Scene: Moutaintops stencils.  

Amy-Wings of Love

I used many shades of blue inks (for example--Blue Corn, Blueberry, Gumball) and rotated my stencil from side to side and stenciled the same color for varying heights of mountains.  Wings of Love and the sentiment, from Sincere Sentiments, was stamped in Blue Corn ink over the blended panel.  To finish, a Frame in Frame 3 was added to frame the scene.

Avery Elle / Peace on Earth

I'm here today sharing a peaceful scene using the Peace on Earth set from

I love this focal image from Peace on Earth featuring the dove and holiday sprig.  The image was lightly colored with B0000 and N0 Copics and the sprig with YG61, YG63, YG 67 and R29.  It was die cut three times and layered for dimension.  A panel of glitter cardstock was adhered behind the Starburst Oval Elle-ments.  The oval frame was adhered using foam adhesive.  The focal image was adhered using more foam adhesive for lots of dimension!  Clear gems were added to finish off the card and add some shine.
