New Wheatfield Dreams Card Kit from Taylored Expressions

Today I am excited to share another new card kit designed by the amazing Lori Craig for Taylored Expressions, Wheatfield Dreams. The first two card kits, Field Notes and Field Notes 2 are two of my all time favorite stamps sets so I knew I would love Wheatfield Dreams. 

The kit includes a Mini Embossing Powder in Copper. It is really a pretty color. I stamped the sunflower and the wheat on watercolor paper in Versamark Ink and then embossed with the Copper Embossing Powder. Then I watercolored the images with TE Liquid Watercolor. There are three new watercolor colors being released, Honey, Mulled Wine, and Sweet Basil which can be purchased separately. I used Honey, Sweet Basil, along with Pineapple Liquid Watercolor to watercolor the stamped images. 


I die cut a circle of vellum to center the flowers on the card. I like using vellum because it is subtle and you can still see the background pattern, it is just softened. 


The background is stamped with the Burlap Background Stamp, which is included in the kit. I stamped Toffee Ink on Toffee Cardstock and then lightly splattered white paint. The sentiment is included in the Wheatfield Dreams stamp set. 




On my second card I stamped the flowers in Versamark Ink and embossed with the Copper Embossing Powder again, but on this card I colored with my Copic Markers, going with rich, fall colors for the sunflowers. To create the background for the flowers I cut a piece of Sugar Cube Cardstock with the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets and stenciled clouds with the Set the Scene - Clouds Stencil Strips and Salt Water Taffy Ink. 



I used the Burlap Background Stamp for the background again, this time stamping Sweet Basil Ink on Sweet Basil Cardstock. The sentiment and the diamond border are also included in the kit. 





Here’s everything included in the Wheatfield Dreams Kit – which is available for $69:
  • Wheatfield Dreams stamp set
  • Wheatfield Dreams die collection
  • Burlap Background stamp

Stop by the TE Blog to see how you can participate in the celebrations. 

I have three projects to share with you today. 


My first set of projects showcase the new Party Time Stamp & Stencil Combo and Dies

I chose two different color combinations to work with for each card. My first card is done in Cupcake, Guava, Granny Smith and Lemon Meringue Inks I stamped the hats in Cupcake Ink and used the coordinations stencils to add the other details and colors. 



The word Celebrate is die cut with the new Get the Word Out - Celebrate and then die cut with the new Get the Word Out - Celebrate Shadow Die. I also die cut the word from Guava Cardstock to layer under the Celebrate die cut. The sentiment is from the latest addition to the Mini Strips Collection, Birthday Mini Strips. I used the Party Time Die to die cut a few extra hats. I topped each hat off  with one of the new Tiny Diamonds Embellishments. 


I created the second card using the same process as the first card but using a combination of Gumball, Peapod, Blueberry, and Blue Raspberry Inks. 


I popped up the hats and sentiment with foam tape to add that extra dimension. 


I also created two coordinating tags to attach to the birthday gifts. 


Next up is a look at the new Sweet Shoppe Stencil and Clear Combo and the Sweet Shoppe Dies. The set creates these mini size cupcakes along with a few larger cupcakes. I used Toffee Ink and Mocha Ink stencil the chocolate cupcakes and then used a variety of inks to the created the frostings. I listed my color combinations in the links below. 


I stenciled the background with the Mini Slim Stencil - Sunray with Potato Chip and Pineapple Inks. The sentiments on the card are also from the new Birthday Mini Strips. The final touch was to add a few of the new Tiny Diamonds in coordinating colors to the top of each cupcake. I love these! They are perfect to add details and shine to your project without the bulk! 



My final project used the new Present Treat Wrap Die. I added chocolate squares to the packages. They fit perfectly. But you could used other treats or a small gift. 


I die cut the bows with a variety of TE Glittered Cardstock. Each package is stenciled with the new Sprinkles Rotating Stencil.

Loveliest Fall Greetings

 Hi and thanks for stopping by today! I have another fall card to share with you that I created with the new Wagon Full of Fall Etched Dies from the Happy Harvest Collection by Nichol Spohr from Spellbinders. This is a set of 13 thin metal dies. You can fill the wooden wagon with fall items including sunflowers, pumpkin, gourd, apples and more!


I filled my wagon with all the dies in the set so you could get an idea of the variety of fall dies. I die cut the items from a white cardstock and the blended distress inks in a variety of fall colors. 


I love all the details the etched dies create. The dies create the texture on the wood on the wagon and the nail heads on the wagon frame. I added a gold with the gel pen to the nails. 


I created background by stenciling clouds in the background and blending Forest Moss Distress Ink for the grass. Then I splattered the background with gold paint. I also added a few Metallic Gold Jewels. 


Thanks for taking a look!
