Graceful Ferns

There is a new card kit being released at Taylored Expressions today. When your loved ones need you the most, you’ll be sure to have just the right card on hand with our beautiful Graceful Ferns Cardmaking Kit. Whether you need to send your condolences right away or reach out with words of encouragement and support after some time has passed, the cards you create with this kit will be perfect for sharing your heartfelt sympathy.

Here are my first two cards with the kit. I used a mix of TE Liquid Watercolors and TE Ink to color my two cards. 

The leaves on my first card are die cut from watercolor Cardstock with the Graceful Ferns Die, included in the kit. I used TE Liquid Watercolor in Spearmint and Sweet Basil and then splattered  the leaves lightly with gold paint. I tied the three stems together with twine. Behind the leaves I cut a rectangle of Salt Water Taffy Cardstock and added clouds with the Set the Scene - Cloud Strips, a TE Blunder Brush, and Confetti Cake Ink. 

Behind the clouds I added a panel of Toffee Cardstock stamped with the Shiplap Background Stamp. The sentiment is stamped with the The Inside Scoop – Sympathy stamp set and die cut with the die in the kit. 

My second card features the Leafy Frond Stamps and Die from the kit. I stamped the solid frond in Versamark Ink and embossed with TE Embossing Powder. Next I stamped the outline of the leaf in Versamark Ink, embossed with TE Gold Embossing powder and watercolored with Lime Zest and Peapod Liquid Watercolor. 

To create the background I cut a piece of watercolor cardstock to fit the card front and watercolored the panel in Blue Corn Liquid Watercolor. Once the paper was dry I stenciled over watercoloring with the Wild Willow Stencil and Blue Corn Ink. The sentiment from the kit is stamped in Versamark Ink on vellum and embossed with gold embossing powder. I framed the card with the A2 Thin Frame Cutting Plate.

Our Graceful Ferns Kit comes in a zippered pouch with a custom sticker and includes:

Graceful Ferns stamp set
Graceful Ferns Dies
The Inside Scoop – Sympathy stamp set
Leafy Frond Die
A2 Envelope Pack (6 envelopes; 1 each of Jelly Donut, Peapod, Salt Water Taffy, Sugar Cube, Sweet Basil and Toffee)
Envelope Seal Pack (6 seals; 2 each of 3 designs)
Limited quantity available

The vast majority of the individual items included in our cardmaking kits will not be available to purchase individually in the future. While we may, on rare occasions, release a kit item into our regular inventory at a later time, this will no longer be an option for the majority of the products. Instead, they will remain exclusive to the kits and may only be purchased as part of a kit while supplies last.

Since our curated cardmaking kits can sell out quickly, we encourage you to purchase the kits you love when they are released, as they will not be restocked once they have sold out. We intend to release a kit the last Tuesday of each month at 9am (Central), and a sneak preview will be posted on the TE Blog on the Saturday prior to the release.

To be notified of new kit releases, be sure to subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on Facebook and Instagram! Stay tuned for another fabulous kit next month!
