Fresh Floral Thank You

Hi Everyone! Hope you had a great weekend. I have a card to share today that I created with the new Taylored Expressions Fresh Floral Stamp Set and the coordinating Fresh Floral Dies.


I stamped the flowers and leaves with the new TE Dye Ink. Love the coverage! I stamped a sentiment from the Fresh Floral Stamp Set in Memento Luxe Wedding Dress Full Pad and embossed with white embossing powder. The sentiment is die cut with the Banner Stacklets 4.


I embossed around the edges with the new Garden Party Embossing Folder and added a few clear sequins. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

Paper Smooches Happy Birthday

I had a little time this weekend to play along with the Paper Smooches June Challenge: Layers. Adding layers makes for an easy challenge for me!  I am using one of my all time favorite Paper Smooches Stamps, Best Buds


I colored the image with Copic Markers and added a little glitter to the jar with  Zig Wink of Stella Pen in Clear. The image is die cut with the Best Buds Icon Dies. The background is embossed with the TE Bead Board Embossing Folder. 


I cut a triangle from white card stock and die cut the holes with the Paper Smooches Polka Dot Borders Dies and ran twine through the middle row of dots. The sentiment is from the PS Salutations Stamp Set.  The final touch is a few 4mm Clear Droplets from Pretty Pink Posh

A Summer Hello

Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by today! I have a summer card to share today that I created for the Poppy Power June Challenge - Happy Mail. The challenge is to create a "just because" card and actually put it the mail. My card is for my mom. She loves sitting on the beach and reading a book.


I colored one of the images from the Best Day Ever Stamp Set with my Copic Markers. Behind the circle I add a layer of sand and a sentiment from the stamp set. 


I die cut the flip flops with the TE Little Bit - Flip Flops and finished the card off with rhinestones and twine.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a good weekend.

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Tasty Tropics

Hi Everyone! It is time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Tasty Tropics. 

I hope you get a chance to play along. The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge.


Here's my take on the challenge using the Simply Stamped - Pineapple from Taylored Expressions.


I watercolored the background behind the pineapple and cut the frame with the Frame in Frame 2 Cutting Plate. 


The flowers are die cut with the Bloomers 1 Die and the leaves with the Bloomers Greenery. I finished off the card with clear sequins and an enamel dot.

Don't Worry Be Happy - It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions!

It's release day at Taylored Expressions!!  All the new June  products are available at the TE web store NOW! June is such a fun, happy, summer release! 

Today I am showcasing the new On The Line Beach Cutting Plate


First I used the On The Line Beach Cutting Plate to cut the  tree trunks and sand from Toffee Card Stock. Then I cut the Palm leaves from watercolor paper and added color with watercolor paints. The dies I used to clothes line, trunks, bathing  suit, birds, crab, shells, and surf board are all included in the On The Line Beach Cutting Plate. 


The chair is cut with the new Little Bits - Adirondack Chair. The patterned paper is from the Echo Park 6x6 pad - Summer Party. The "perfect" sentiment is from the new Simply Stamped - Pineapple Stamp Set.


Here are the products I used to create my first card:



On my second card I just used a portion of the On The Line Beach Cutting Plate to create the scene framed with the new Frame in Frame 2 Cutting Plate. The background is watercolored.



The flamingos are cut with the new Little Bits - Flamingo and I added a few accents with Copic Markers. The sentiment is from the new Fresh Floral Stamp Set
