Taylored Expressions / Shades of Spring

Welcome to the Shades of Spring new color release from Taylored Expressions!
We welcome 4 new colors...Bleu Cheese, Oat Milk, Brussels Sprout, and Green Tea.

I have 2 projects to share with you with one focusing on cardstock and one on the new ink!


I've used the newer die set called Garden Variety 2 to die cut shades of the new colors and arranged to create a wreath.  I've added gold accents by using the Gold Bits and Pieces.  Everything was tied together by adding in a gold heat embossed sentiment from Mini Strips Sending.



My second project uses the Create-In-Quads Poster Prints Layering Stencil with the new colors of ink.  I didn't realize how I much I was missing some green colors in my Taylored Expressions color lineup!  I adore these new green shades! 


Each card was embellished with dies and bits and pieces from Taylored Expressions.  Each card features a gold foiled sentiment from Hello Lovely.



Now for a limited time, we’ve got a Full Set Syndrome Bundle for $106 that includes: 60 sheets of cardstock (15 of each color), 40 A2 envelopes (10 of each color), 4 full size ink pads, 4 mini ink pads, 4 ink refills, True Colors – Shades of Spring stamp set, and True Colors – Shades of Spring labels. It’s a great way to add all 4 colors to your collection and keep them organized! Offer valid while supplies last.

Avery Elle / Brilliant Birthday

I am here to celebrate birthdays with the Brilliant Birthday set!  It features a main sentiment but has the most amazing supporting scripty words to personalize your card or tag!

For my card, I made my husband's birthday card for this year (early!).  I used Balloon Wishes to stamp the balloons onto colored cardstock and then die cut using the coordinating Balloon Wishes Elle-ments.  I added some white pigment ink splatter to the balloons.  For the base of the card, the main sentiment was stamped and then personalized with 'husband'.  A die cut frame, from Scalloped Burst Elle-ments, done in kraft cardstock was added with foam adhesive.  The balloons were added with foam adhesive atop the tiny balloon strings (I'm sure it's supposed to be streamers ha!).  As a last touch, the solid stars were stamped in blue ink.  I love how simple this turned out.....my guy doesn't like bling or glitter so this is perfect!  🤣🤣

This kit contains a plate that cuts out loads of gorgeous blooms but they can also be colored in using the coordinating stencils!!!  

Amy-Scattered Blooms6

My first card uses the stencils with the all in one die plate.  My color combination is a favorite.....Confetti Cake, Poblano Pepper, Guava, Pineapple, and Sweet Potato Pie.  The best thing is that this plate cuts all the little veins and detail areas of the leaves and flowers!!  LOVE!

Each of these blooms was added with foam adhesive on the back for lots of dimension!  The sentiment was done using the new Hugs Die included but the backer is an additional die that also can be purchased!

Avery Elle / Balloon Wishes

I'm here sharing some fun using Balloon Wishes from Avery Elle!

Balloon Wishes2

I started by creating black and white horizontal stripes to the left side using 1/4" black strips of cardstock.  Use those scraps!  My card base is a bit smaller than the usual A2 card size due to the stripes.  

The balloon panel was done by die cutting the balloons and ink blended them with ink that was just a bit darker than the cardstock using the Polka Dots Stencil.  The balloon strings were stamped in black ink and little tassels were added.  Over this panel, gold watercolor was splattered.  This panel was added to the striped notecard with foam adhesive.  A few gold rhinestones were added to tie in with the splatter.  Finished this with stamped black stars and the layered 'congrats' sentiment.
