You’re out of this World!

Hello there! How are you all? Looking forward to the weekend? I am. I had a tough week. Hubby pulled his back muscles and was in lot of pain.  After meeting with the specialist and an steroid injection into his ligament, he is now feeling a bit better. Able lift his hand more than earlier. Hoping he will recover over the weekend and I can relax. It is always a worry when one of the family member falls sick. So I was missing in action this week on my blog. I think I will get back in action from next week.

I am sharing with you a spinner card using the new Space Cadet stamp set and coordinating dies from Taylored Expressions. This stamp set and coordinating dies were released this month.

 I used Taylored Expressions Blue Corn cardstock to start with and sponged Distress Oxide inks in Broken China, Faded Jean and Peeled Paint. Finally added Black Soot distress ink to the edges and few spots inside as well. Then I spattered some Copic Opaque White all over the panel. I left the panel to dry while I worked on the images from Space Cadet stamp set.

I stamped them all on Sugar Cube cardstock using Oreo TE hybrid ink and coloured them all with copic markers. Then I die cut them all out using coordinating dies. I added some glossy accent on some aread on the die cut images and left them to dry.

I worked on the background pane again now. I used Stitched Circle Stacklets on the panel to die cut a frame on the middle of the panel. I foam mounted the panel and the inner circle on the card base and flush glued the frame in its place. I made sure the foam adhesives on the centre circle and on the main panel are not close to the edges.  I then tucked in two Australian 5cent coin in the frame area, added foam adhesives and the two astronauts images. These two images now spin and revolve in the circle. I adhered the planet image in the centre, white heat embossed the sentiment on the bottom right of the background with the image of the rocket image next to it. That finishes the card. Here is a closeup of the card.

I think this is a fun card with the interactive element to it. All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.

 Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

Its the release day!

Yay! Its the release day today. All the new goodies are now available for purchase at the Taylored Expressions store.  I am showcasing two new products today. The first on is a stamp set and coordinating die called Pow!Boom!Wow!

I combine this stamp set and die with My Super Hero stamp and die combo to make this card.

I sponged the background with Broken China and spattered with water to add texture. I stamped the images from both My Super Hero as well as Pow!Boom!Wow! stamp set with Oreo Ink. Coloured them with copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies. I adhered the images as shown on the card front. Some of them flush glued and the others with foam adhesives. I also stamped couple of sentiment from Pow!Boom!Wow! directly on the card front using Oreo hybrid ink.

I then white heat embossed the sentiment from Pow!Boom!Wow! stamp set on a strip of Oreo cardstock and adhered below the cluster of images. Finally I added lots of Lemon Meringue enamel shaped stars. That felt complete. Here are some closeups of the card.

All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.

The second new product I am showcasing today is called Downtown Border Underlay die. 

This die goes behind the Downtown Border die and that was what I did on my card.

I masked and sponged the card front with Candy Corn, Pumpkin, Lemon Meringue and Potato Chip TE dye inks. I then die cut the Downtown Border Underlay die with Watermelon cardstock and Downtown Border die using Oreo cardstock. I layered the border die with the underlay and glued. I adhered this on the bottom of the sponged area.

I then stamped some of the images from Space Cadet stamp set, coloured with copic markers and die cut using the coordinating dies. I adhered them on top of the Downtown die. Again some flush and others using foam adhesives. Then I stamped the stars as well as the sentiment from the stamp set on the card front using Oreo hybrid ink. I used Wink of Stella on the stars as well as on the planets. I added some glossy accent on some areas of the planets for added texture. Love how this card turned out.

All the supplies I used to make this card are listed below.

Hope you liked all my projects this release. All the new release products are now available at Taylored Expressions store. Happy Shopping!

It’s day #3 of Taylored Expressions May Release Sneak Peek!

Welcome back! This is my second post for today. Here is my first post.

Today is day #3 sneak peek of Taylored Expressions May release. Hope you have enjoyed day #1 and day#2 sneak peeks. Tomorrow is the release day. Hope you already have a list ready.

I am showcasing three new products today. They are Little Bits: Mushroom, Build a Scene Grassy Hills dies and Punny Man 2 stamp set.

My first card using the Little Bits: Mushroom, Build a Scene: Grassy Hills and a sentiment from Punny Man 2 stamp set.

I used Distress Oxide inks to add colour the sky, grass and mushrooms. I used Broken China and Faded Jeans for the sky. Peeled Paint for the grass, worn Lipstick, Fired Brick and Vintage Photo for the mushrooms. The water spatter is just so beautiful and adds texture to the card. To add interest in the sky I added Stitched Cloud Duo die.

The sentiment from Punny Man 2 stamp set is white heat embossed on a strip of Oreo cardstock. I also added Wink of Stella clear shimmer to the clouds and mushroom. And highlight on the mushrooms using white gel pen.

All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.

 The second card used the Grassy Hills border dies along with another new stamp and coordinating die called Wagon Bouquet.

I stamped copic coloured the image from Wagon Bouquet stamp set and die cut the image using the coordinating die. For the scene I used pattern paper from Playful Patterns: Harvest 6×6 pattern paper pack. The pack has this beautiful clouds pattern paper which I used for the sky, the grassy hills die I used to cut two layers of the grassy hills.

Actually I die cut both the papers using the largest of the stitched rectangle die from Stitched Rectangle Stacklet die set. Then I used the grassy hills to die cut the two layers so the stitch detail continues on the entire panel. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on the top right of the panel using Oreo hybrid ink and MISTI. I mounted this panel on to the yellow polka dot panel cut to the size of the card front and again to the card base. Finally I added glossy accent to the flower centres.

All the supplies used to make this card is listed below.
