Taylored Expressions!

Amy_Framed Flowers2

This one uses the new All Planned Out 2 to create some windows to frame the flowers from Framed Flowers.  I went with a color scheme of Blueberry and a scrap of a light peachy cardstock.  All the Flowers were Copic colored and die cut using the new coordinating dies.

My second card uses All Planned Out 1 along with a panel from Ever in Bloom Quad.

Colors used on the stencils include Cupcake, Pineapple, Honey, Avocado, and Peapod inks.  I love all the additional elements included in the All Planned Out dies!  For a focal point, a foiled sentiment from Hello Lovely was added with foam adhesive.

I created a scene using Scalloped Burst Elle-ments and some pattern paper from a retired Avery Elle called The Holiday Collection.  In the background, some light green ink was blended. and some confetti stamped (from Shaggy Dog).  The focal image was Copic colored and white pigment pen details were added.  The Aloe Amigo was added with thin foam tape and as a last tough the adorable moustache!!!

Taylored Expressions / Throwback Thursday!

Welcome to Throwback Thursday with 
Taylored Expressions!

I was so excited to see a coordinating die for the Hedgehugs and die set for To the Point sentiment set!

I created an adorable BABY card using the Hedgehugs and some circle dies.  Check it out:


I was going for a soft snuggly baby quilt by using the Pierced Circles Cutting Plate and the Frame in Frame 2 Cutting Plate.  I created my moon shapes with standard circle dies and added some darker shading with my blender brushes.

Avery Elle / More Inside Sentiments

I'm here sharing some birthday wishes using More Inside Greetings from Avery Elle.  This set is not just for the "INSIDE" of cards!  These fun sentiments are perfect for the front of cards too!  I don't generally finish the insides of my cards so this set is great for me to use!  

More Inside Sentiments

I started by white heat embossing the "HOORAY" from Little Card Big Wishes down a panel of white cardstock and then ink blended a pastel rainbow.  Layered this panel with black cardstock and added my black stamped sentiment strip across the middle.  I added some silver glitter die cut stars from Timeless.

Taylored Expressions / Happy Half Sheets

It's time for a fun release from Taylored Expressions called Happy Half Sheets!

The idea is you cut one sheet of cardstock in half, stamp the entire sheet with images from a set, and cut it apart following one of the half sheet layouts provided in Volume 1 or 2.

I had fun using this concept with Volume 1 Happy Half Sheets and Bits & Blooms.  I used a fun bright color combination of Dragonfruit, Tropical Punch, Concord Grape, Granny Smith, Cupcake, and Versafine Claire inks.

I used layout #1 from Volume 1 for my cards.  It was so easy to put these 4 cards together using one set and one stamped panel!  (I did sneak in a sentiment from It's Your Day)  Added in some stamped, diecut flowers for dimension and added Bits & Pieces Black Gemstones for finishing touches!

Next up, is a card for Christmas in July!  Using a new set called Make It Merry and coordinating dies.

Amy_Make it Merry2

Using the Pierced Grid Cutting Plate for easy spacing, the snowflakes were stamped using Sugar Cube ink on Toffee Cardstock.  Since the postage look is so popular recently (price is going up!), I used the A2 Postage Stamp Stacklets to create my own stamp using the bold images from Make it Merry.  Green and red gemstones from my stash were used to embellish the tree and holly.

Promo for this release:

With every Make it Merry Bundle purchase, you will receive a free cardstock kit that includes 2 half-sheets of TE Premium Cardstock (one sugar cube and one toffee), and 10 side-fold Sugar Cube Card bases. These items won't show up in your cart, but it will be included in your package when your bundle is shipped.

Taylored Expressions / Hey, Lady! Cardmaking Kit

It's time for a FABULOUS cardmaking kit from Taylored Expressions!

Hey, lady! is a kit filled with lots of ladybugs and blooms including stencils!

Amy_Hey, Lady2

For my first card, I went clean and simple with layers (my favorite!) using Pink Champagne Cardstock and the Petite Scallop Rectangle Stacklets along with A2 Layer Stacklets.  After assembling lots of blooms, they were adhered randomly over the inner layer of cardstock.  The stamped and die cut ladybugs were added along with sentiment strips that were white heat embossed onto Oreo Cardstock.

My second card uses the stenciled ladybug panel along with the Stitched Frame Stacklets 3 which was layered several times for dimension against the background.

Amy_Welcome Little Bug2

The dotted lines were stamped inside the circular frame and some black gems added along with some added die cut flowers.

Avery Elle / Shaggy Dog

I am here sharing a "congrats" card with you using the Shaggy Dog stamp set and other supplies from Avery Elle.

Amy_Shaggy Dog2

Shaggy Dog was Copic colored and die cut along with the confetti image in multiples.  Shaggy Dog was layered over a bold black Oval Burst Elle-ments along with a layered sentiment from Little Card Big Wishes.  The colored confetti was added along with drops of glitter glue.  White pigment ink details were added as accents.  The "Congrats" sentiment, from Little Card Big Wishes, was die cut and added to the inside panel to finish the card.
