Taylored Expressions April Release Sneak Peek Day #2

How was the day #1 sneak peek? Did you like the new Simple Strips stamp and coordinating die? I love the concept of it. Taylor has a video showing how to use the Simple Strips and the coordinating die to die cut the sentiments. Here is the link to her video.

Today is day #2 of sneak peek. I have two new stamp set to share with you. The first one is called Bubble Greetings-Grad! I paired this stamp with Color My World stamp set to make my very colourful rainbow card.

I used MISTI to ink up the map image from Color My world stamp set and stamp on Sugar Cube cardstock panel. The inks I used are all distress inks. I used Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry. I LOVE the scribble pattern on the world map-graphic and trendy.

Then I stamped the Bubble Greetings Grad on Sugar Cube cardstock using Oreo hybrid ink and coloured the image using copic markers in the corresponding colours on the background. I hand cut out the greetings and added highlights using white gel pen. I stamped this sentiment on the middle of the background using Oreo hybrid ink and adhered the cut out sentiment using foam adhesive over the stamped sentiment. The secondary sentiment is from Color My World stamp set is white heat embossed on a strip of Oreo cardstock and adhered below the Bubble Greetings Grad sentiment.

On the card base, I adhered two strips of black and white striped pattern paper from Playful Pattern Black and White 6×6 paper pack. The panel is adhered on the centre using foam adhesives with the black and white strips showing on the top and bottom of the card front. A few TE sequins in rainbow colours to finish off the card.


The second card is another graduation card showcasing Banner Year stamp and die combo. I paired it with the new The Tassel stamp set and coordinating die.

I stamped the patterns on Sugar Cube cardstock using TE Fruit Punch, Granny Smith, Lemon Meringue and Gumball inks. Then using the banner die I die cut them all out. I drew a semi circle using a large plate three times on the card front using black fineliner. The adhered the banners to each of the semi circles using foam adhesives for added dimension.

The sentiment from the Banner Year stamp set is white heat embossed on strips of Oreo cardstock. I trimmed the ends into fish tail banners. Then I also stamped the graduating hat from The Tassel stamp set in Oreo hybrid ink, die cut using the coordinating die. I adhered them all as shown in the photos using foam adhesives. A few TE sequins to finish off the card.
