Easter Wishes

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I have a card to share with some of the latest release products from Taylored Expressions. 


I guess Easter really will be here before we know it!

I used the new Easter Wishes Stamp Set to create this card. The stamp set has three beautiful eggs included in the set. I stamped with egg in Delicata Golden Glitz Ink and embossing with gold embossing powder. I colored with Copic markers but next I want to try watercoloring the eggs. I die cut the eggs with the Egg Stacklets. 


The pretty background is created with the Leafy Vine Cutting Plate, but I left all the pieces in place. The embellishment is put together with the Bloomers Greenery and the Bloomers 2 dies, and the bunny from the Door to Door Spring Decor Die Set. 

The sentiment is from the Easter Wishes Stamp Set and cut out with the Stitched Banner Stacklets. 

Have a good rest of the week! Here are the links to the products I used to create this card:

Be Mine - Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Sachet

Hi and thanks for stopping by today! There is still time to play along with the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Sachet. Hope you get a little time to create with us! 

The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!




I was inspired by the felt hearts in the inspiration photo. I used felt from Taylored Expression, my very favorite felt! I layered to felt hearts and ran a running stitch around the edges. 


The flowers are cut with Taylor's Bloomers 1 and 2 , and the leaves with the Bloomers Greenery. I added a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. A pretty valentine for one of my girls! 

Thanks! You can stop by the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge for all the details!

Taylored Expressions February Release is Now Available

It's release day at Taylored Expressions!!  All the new February products are available at the TE web store NOW! 

My card today is created with the new Wildflower Bouquet Stamp Set and the coordinating Wildflower Bouquet Die. It is so pretty!


Let's start with the background of the card. I love the look of white on white. I used the new Leafy Vine Cutting Plate to cut the leafy background and layered Sugar Cube Card Stock behind the leaves. I used the Stitched Circle Stacklets to add the circle to the background. 


I colored the Wildflower Bouquet with Copic markers and added Zig Wink of Stella Brush Glitter in Clear to the water. I used the Wildflower Bouquet Die to die cut the image and attached it to the card with thin adhesive dots. 

Thanks for visiting! If you'd like to see more projects and new product information, please head over to the TE Blog for a complete list of our participating designers!

Maya Road Sweet Nothings Card Kit

Hi Everyone! I am popping in today to share two more cards that I created with the newly released Maya Road Sweet Nothings Card Kit. The kit is a great mixture of stamps, papers, and lots of fun and pretty Maya Road embellishments!


On this card I created the background pattern with stamps from the Sweet Nothing Stamp Set that is included in the card kit. 


Here's a closer look at the sweet embellishments. 


To create the sentiment on this card I used the Sweet Nothing Stamp Set and the cupcake rub-ons from the kit. 


I painted the chipboard and sprinkled on glitter before the paint was dry. 



You can stop by the Maya Road Kit Blog HERE for all the details on how to purchase the Sweet Nothing Card Kit.
