Celebrate with Taylored Expressions June Release!

Today is day #3 of the Taylored Expressions June release. Hope you enjoyed the day #1 and #2 projects. I have two new projects to share with you today showcasing more new products in the June release.

The first project showcases the new Banner of the Year 4th of July stamp and die combo with Home of the Brave stamp set. I love love how this card turned out. Hope you like it too.

I used my favourite Sea Salt cardstock from TE as my base and layering. I stamped the burst images from Banner of the Year 4th of July stamp set in Cherry Pop and Blueberry TE dye all over the card front.

For the second layer, I trimmed the Sea Salt cardstock to 4″x5.25″ in size and stamped the map of USA using the same two inks. I masked striped portion to ink the star portion with Blueberry and stamped first using MISTI, the masked the star portion of the image to ink the stripped portion with Cherry Pop to stamp using MISTI. Then I roughed the edges of this panel before I adhered on the card front using foam adhesives.

For the third layer, I used vellum. I stamped the banner images suing the same colours of ink, die cut them using the die from the set and arranged on the vellum layer using foam adhesives. Then die cut the USA using a few white cardstock and one using golf foil cardstock to stack and glur with the gold layer on the top. I adhered these on top of the banner. I also die cut some stars using gold foil cardstock and adhered to the ends of the banner. The sentiment is from Home of the Brave which I stamped using the same two colours and MISTI comes in handy for this. Trimmed the sentiment and adhered using foam adhesive below the banner. The whole vellum layer is adhered with foam hidden behind the banner and sentiment on top of the USA map layer. That is it.

Supplies:

Coming to the second project, this one is a pretty one. I used the new Wild Flower background stamp and Hey Craft Friend stamp set to make. The Wildflower stamp is such a beautiful delicate stamp. I decided to watercolour them using TE liquid watercolors.

I white heat embossed the Wildflower image on TE watercolor cardstock panel using TE white detailed embossing powder. Then using TE’s liquid watercolour I coloured the whole panel. I will list all the colours used in the supply list below. Once the panel is dry, I used copic markers to add shading to the insides of the flowers and leaves to make them pop.

I trimmed the panel and adhered on Sugar Cube card base. The sentiment is from Hey Crafty Friend stamp set which I white heat embossed on Oreo cardstock, trimmed and adhered using foam adhesives. A few glossy accents around the panel to mimick dew drops.

Make a Splash with Taylored Expressions June Release Day #2

Welcome back to Day #2 of Taylored Expressions June release. Hope you enjoyed my projects yesterday day #1. Today I have two projects to share using two or more new products. They both are water themed. Hope you like them.

My first project is using the new stamp set and die called Be a Mermaid. It is a gorgoeus Mermaid tails stamp set. I combined this set with the new Build a Background Waves stamp and die combo to make this card.

So I used the Build a Background Waves stamp and die combo to build my background for the mermaid tails. The inks I used are Toffee, Sprinkles, Cookie Monster and Blue Raspberry TE dye inks. Using the dies, I die cut couple of slits. I die cut this panel using one of the largest stitched square die from Stitched Square Stacklet.

For the mermaid tails, I sponged distress inks on three small panels. I will list all the distress inks I used on the supply list below. Using the Be a Mermaid coordinating dies I die cut the panels out and layered with gold mermaid diecut cut out of TE gold foil cardstock. I stuck the mermaid tails into the slits and adhered on the back with glue and foam on end of the tail for dimension.

This square panel is adhered on Sugar Cube card base using foam adhesive and the sentiment is stamped using Oreo hybrid ink using MISTI. A few Snow Flurries sequins with white Nuvo crystal drops to complete the card.

Supplies:

Now my second project is also water themed. I am showcasing the new Rainbow Waves background stamp set. I used emboss resist technique to achieve the background.

So the background is emboss resist. I white heat embossed the Rainbow Waves background stamp on Sugar Cube panel, then sponged distress inks to add colour. I will list all the distress inks I used on this card in the supply list below. I trimmed the panel and adhered to the Sugar Cube card base using foam adhesive.

For the focal point, I used an Inside Scallop Circle die to die cut out of Sugar Cube panel. Then I stamped the sentiment from Floaties stamp set using Oreo ink and MISTI. The focal die cut image is die cut using Build A Scene Underwater dies and distress inks sponged panels. I adhered this on the centre of the Rainbow Waves background panel using foam adhesives. A few white Nuvo crystal drops to finish off the card.

Do Something Creative with Taylored Expression June Release!

Every one should do something creative everyday. That is my opinion. It can be anything. Any form of art is acceptable. I think being creative gives oneself a sense of achievement and satisfaction that they did it themselves. Do you agree?

Hello and welcome. I am Gayatri, a papercrafter. Next three days, I am sharing two projects each day I have made using two new soon to be released products from Taylored Expressions.

So in today’s post, I am sneak peeking two stamp sets. The first one is called Create in Color background stamp along with Complementary stamp set. The second stamp set is called Do Something Creative. Lets start with Create In Color background stamp project.

So I stamped the Create in Color background stamp on Sugar Cube cardstock using Oreo ink and coloured them using copic markers. The using the Light Up the Night stencil (which is new), I applied Moonstone glimmer paste to only the top portion of the panel. This added subtle texture to the card.

Using the sentiment from Complementary stamp set, I stamped three of them on Sugar Cube cardstock using Plum Punch, Lollipop and Cookie Monster TE dye inks. Then using the Little Bits Lets Talk Bubbles 3 die, I die cut the sentiments out and adhered using foam adhesives. This entire panel is adhered on card base. The card is finished.

Supplies:

Now to the second project, I am sneak peeking Do Something Creative stamp set. This set also has coodinating dies. But I decided to used them the stamp set to make a one layer card.

So I die cut a circle out of masking paper using one of the Stitched Circle die from Stitched Circle Stacklet and adhered on the top centre of the Sugar Cube panel. I used the bone folder to burnish the circle on the panel. Then using the Oreo hybrid ink, I stamped all the images from the Do Something Creative stamp set randomly all over the panel making sure I stamp the images half on the masking paper and half outside on the panel. Then I removed the masking paper and stamped the sentiment from stamp set in the middle of the circle using Oreo hybrid ink and MISTI.

I coloured all the images using copic markers and outlined them using C1 cool grey marker to add shading. Three heart shaped enamel shape from Oreo enamel shape collection to frame the sentiment finishes off the card. I trimmed this panel slighly smaller than the card front adhered on the Sugar Cube card base. So this card did not end up as one layer card after all 🙂
