Taylored Expressions / Easter Release

Is Spring here yet?  It is at Taylored Expressions!
The Easter Release is now available and it's a goooood one!

Amy-Joyful Bunny2

My first card features the Joyful Bunny Stamp & Stencil Combo and I've paired it with the coordinating die.  The die has amazing etched marks to give the bunny even more detail!  My colors include Rose Water, Spearmint, Macaron, and Banana Cream Pie.  I'e added a foiled sentiment from the new Hello Spring Foil Its done in Champagne foil.

My next set of cards feature the Folk Eggs Stamp & Stencil Combo.  Here for both cards I've done a white backgrounds using dies from Taylored Expressions to make the eggs really pop!

Amy-Folk Egg

I've paired the eggs with the Easter Egg Cup dies and embellished them with gold cardstock to tie in with the gold foiled sentiments.

My last card features the Awesome Easter Stencil & Die Combo.  It features Easter time icons of carrots, eggs, and flowers.  

Amy-Awesome Easter

The background was done with one of the Greetings of Spring Foil Its done in Wild Cherry foil.  After stenciling the icons and die cut, they were arranged around the 'happy easter' foiled sentiment in the center but still keeping within the foiled double border.

My third project is using the Ferns Forever Background.  I've inked it up using an ombre color scheme using Confetti Cake, Blue Raspberry, and Poblano Pepper inks.  

Amy-Ferns Forever

Each background was trimmed into sections and added to the base card.  Sentiment is from You Are and is perfect for these cards!

Avery Elle / Groovy Vibes

Feelin' Groovy!
I'm here with a card with all the vibes featuring a new set called Groovy Vibes.

Amy-Groovy Vibes2

I started with ink blending orange and pink ink over the Flower Power Stencil and trimming the panel.  A frame from Scalloped Burst Elle-ments was ink blended lightly with the pink ink left on the brush for a soft look.  The 'Groovy' die was cut from thick black glitter cardstock, matted with a thick vellum, and added to the card.  A few black stars, from Balloon Wishes, were stamped across the panel.

Avery Elle / Modern Tags

I'm here with a project using many new products released just last week from Avery Elle!

Modern Tags2

I started off using the Flower Power Stencil.  Using only the ink on my pink blender brush, the ink was blended over the stencil onto a panel of white cardstock and onto a 3 1/4' x 3 1/4' separate smaller piece.  Into the smaller cardstock piece, the 'HB2U', die from the Modern Tags, was die cut.  This square was stamped with a sentiment from the Modern Tags stamp set and then added to the stenciled background using foam adhesive.  To keep this simple, a few flowers (from Easter Egg) were Copic colored, adorned with a black gem, and added to the panel.

Taylored Expressions / Young at Heart

Welcome to the Young at Heart Release from Taylored Expressions!
We have released some fun "treat" ideas for those Valentines!

Amy_Berry Sweet Treat

First up, is the Berry Sweet Treat featuring an adorable strawberry!
It easily holds a few treats like the "nuggets" or other small candy.  I've decorated some of mine with the Burlap Background for some added texture.  I added some mini tags (hand trimmed by myself because I don't have the mini tag dies) with burlap string from Taylored Expressions.

Amy_Berry Sweet Treat2


Our second treat is the I'm a Sucker for You.  This treat is super quick to assemble and would be easy for some younger hands!  The dies have stitching detail around the edges of the petals and leaves.  I've used a bone folder to loosen the petals and bend them to curve outward.  You can decorate the stems with Washi Tape and this keeps the leaves and flower at the top.  You can use Tootsie Pops or other larger sucker!  

Amy_I'm a Sucker

Hope you have enjoyed these projects!!
Happy treat making!!!
