Oh hello everyone, Welcome back! Hope you enjoyed my sneak peek projects yesterday the day #1. Today I have two more projects to share using two more new products from Taylored Expressions. All these products will be released on Thursday the 6th of April.
The first product I am showcasing is my favourite in the release. This is a new stamp set and coordinating die in the Simply Stamped series called Simply Stamped Butterflies. This is a layering stamp set. So pretty and I love it. Here is my card using the stamp set and coordinating dies.
To make this card, I die cut the butterflies using masking paper and randomly adhered on a Sugar Cube cardstock panel. I then sponged TE dye inks – Saltwater Taffy, Sprinkles, Cookie Monster and Blue Corn using the mini round blending tool. Then I removed the masks and stamped the butterflies layering them with various TE dye inks. The green butterfly has the first layer of Granny Smith TE dye ink and second layer Peapod TE dye ink. The yellow butterfly has Potato Chip TE dye ink as the first layer and Lemon Meringue TE dye ink as the second layer. The Pink butterflies have Strawberry Milkshake TE dye ink as the first layer and Lollipop TE dye ink as the second layer. Some of the other butterflies have Lemon Meringue TE dye ink as the first layer and Granny Smith TE dye ink as the second layer. These two ink are not the shades of same colour but next to each other. So they work well. The final layer I stamped ink Oreo TE hybrid ink and stamped with versamark over it to clear emboss it. This adds dimension and texture to the butterflies. The body of the butterflies I die cut using Oreo cardstock and coordinating dies.
The background panel is colourful and busy. I wanted to keep it as the highlight of the card. So I kept the sentiment simple. I white heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set on a piece of Oreo cardstock and adhered on the centre of the card front using foam adhesive. Finally embellished with sequins from Snow Flurries sequins. Here are some closeups.
