Taylored Expressions / Scattered Blooms Cardmaking Kit

Hello Spring!
It's time for a fabulous new cardmaking kit from Taylored Expressions called Scattered Blooms!

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!

My second card uses the printed floral pattern that is included but it was FOILED.  So all the details on the flowers are foiled and then the flowers themselves are are stenciled!  The possibilities are endless when it comes to designing with this kit!!

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.

Avery Elle / One In A Melon

Amy here sharing a SWEET card with you using One In A Melon.

One In A Melon2

I created my background using the Midnight Stripes Washi Tape to create some faux paper.  I added a 1/4" black strip across the top of the Washi Tape for a place to ground my images.  The images were all Copic colored and die cut using the coordinating One In A Melon Elle-ments.  I created my sentiment using the Everyday Alphas Elle-ments in coordinating "sweet watermelon" colors.  As a last detail, I added the tiny little ants!!!

Avery Elle / Easter Egg

Easter is just around the corner and so is the Easter Bunny!

Easter Egg2

Avery Elle has this adorable mini set called Easter Egg featuring this bunny peeking out from the egg.  I've colored the image with Copic markers and die cut using the coordinating Easter Egg Elle-ments.  The background was done using two different stencils.....the Polka Dots and Scalloped Stripes.  A white frame from Scalloped Burst Elle-ments was die cut and added with foam adhesive.

Taylored Expressions /

Let's get ready for some new CALENDARS!  You will have plenty of time to create for 2025 with the new calendar products!  Check out the list and the new bundle now available from Taylored Expressions!

I've used the traditional In the Word 3 Calendar Cards for my desk calendar.  I loosely Copic colored the floral images on the cards.  The card was mounted to a table tented card that was embellished with a stamped panel that was die cut using the Stitched Rectangles.  

Amy-In the Word 6


Next up--I have a set of 3 X 3 toffee notecards featuring the Arch Nouveau stamp set designed for a new shape of calendar that is now available from Taylored Expressions.

Amy Arch Nouveau

Each notecard was white heat embossed and die cut using the coordinating Arch Nouveau dies.  The sentiment is from a new set called Sundry Sentiments.

Avery Elle / Thank You Flowers

I have a fresh spring color combo paired with the Thank You Flowers stamp set and matching Thank You Flowers Elle-ments from Avery Elle.

Thank you flowers2

I wanted to keep the sentiment center stage so I stamped the image in black ink and barely colored with flicks of Copic color.  The sentiment was die cut several times and layered.  The background was done by adding 3/4" strips of cardstock across the notecard landscape orientation with a white die cut from using Pierced Rounded Frames Elle-ments.

Thank you flowers3

Thanks for sharing a part of your day here!
