Cute As A Button

ShellyMadeWithLove4.19.14.1

Hi everyone!  It’s been a crazy month and I can hardly believe it’s the 19th already!  Today I have a card using Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month, Made With Love and the coordinating dies, Stitched With Love.  This set is super cute and the coordinating dies are equally fun!  If you are new to Taylored Expressions or want more information about the monthly kits, you can get all the details HERE.  

For today’s card I used Label Stacklets 2 and Label Stacklets 6 to create my frame.  I die cut the dress form, scissors and button from wood paper and inked the edges with chalk ink.  The button stamp is so cute and made a fun background for my card.  I added a little seam binding and ribbon to the dress form and I love how the little details make it stand out.

Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

ShellyMadeWithLoveHop1

Hi guys, it’s time for the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop and I am in love with this month’s stamp set!  The April Stamp of the Month is called, Made with Love, and has coordinating dies called, Stitched with Love.  These two are simply adorable!  The sweet background and tag papers are from the Key Ingredients Kit and I love the colors and tones in it.  If  you’re not familiar with the Stamp of the Month or Key Ingredients kits, you can check it out HERE for more details.  

I die cut the vintage sewing machine out of wood paper and stamped the sentiment onto a scrap piece of lighter wood paper.  I used Tag Stacklets 2 and Tag Reinforcements for my tag.  The flower was die cut from Bloom Where You’re Planted out of coffee filters, spritzed it with water, scrunched and dried it with a heat gun, and finally, airbrushed a little color to it with copics.  I like the soft color of it.

ShellySilStemsThurs1

It’s Release Day and all of the new products are now available at Taylored Expressions!  I hope you’ve all had as much fun as I have!  Today I’m using Silhouette Stems 4 and Various Vases for my flowers.   The sentiment was stamped onto Label Stacklets 8 and I used a 3D foam square to give the vase a little dimension.  I die cut the Silhouette Stem out of wood paper and used Doodlebug Sprinkles for the centers.  I love how this has a clean and simple feel to it.

It’s the last day of our Sneak Peeks and I hope you all have enjoyed seeing everyone’s Sneak Peeks as much as I have!  All of the new items will be available Thursday, April 1st in the Taylored Expressions New department.  This release has been so much fun and has so many wonderful, artsy, elements to it!  Today’s card uses this super cute image from When Your Heart Speaks.  I love the sweet flowers and paint brushes in the jars, don’t you?  

Again, I used Label Stacklets 8 (I can’t get enough of them, lol!) and also, Mini Mix & Match Bows for the sweet bow in the corner.  I love the look of paper bows and these are the perfect size for cards!

My 2nd project for today is this super cute frame and I used images from Sunshiny Day and the sentiment is from A Life She Loved.  I’ve known many women who have made their own lives a wonderful design of all the things they love and thought this sentiment was perfect to put in my craft room.  I love the color of this frame, it’s soft, subtle, and perfect for my little scene.

ShellyWhereEverYouGoTues1

Hi guys, it’s Day 2 of our Sneak Peeks and today I’m sharing a new set called, Wherever You Go, along with the coordinating dies, Hovering By.  I used the hummingbird dies to cut the silhouette of the hummingbirds.  I made a frame out of the new Label Stacklets 8 and stamped the sentiment onto Banner Stacklets 1.  If you saw my post from yesterday, you’ll see I used the awesome new cutting plate, Spotted again, and used the flowers in Wherever You Go for my frame background.  I love this deeper shade of purple and used as my accent color.

Hi y’all!  I can hardly believe it’s time for Sneak Peeks again but I am so excited to show you a few sneakies!  I’m so ready for spring and today’s card reflects all the fresh and gorgeous flowers I hope to see soon!  Sketched Blooms is a super sweet set of six sketched flowers with a few sentiments and leaves.  I stamped the flowers in Memento Rich Cocoa (stamped off one time for  a “seamless” look) and colored them with copics.  I really love all the flowers in this set, they are really sweet!   The polka dot vase is also part of the new release, Various Vases, and has a variety of vases to coordinate with Sketched Blooms and any other floral stamp sets you have.

My 2nd card shows off this fabulous new die, Band It 2, and I love the shape and size of this new Band It!  I used Cherish Every Moment, an adorable set sketched by the very talented Danielle Lounds.  I think these are some of my new favorite flowers!  This type of card is easy to reproduce and change the sentiment to fit birthdays and thank yous.

I’m Here For You

ShellyDialinStyle3.27.14

Hi everyone, today I have a fun card using Dial In Style, a fun die that features this cool telephone.  Remember these?  I remember the first time my boys saw an “old style” phone, one that had the coiled cord and they wanted to know what it was.  What a long way we’ve come from those!  So seeing this die brought an instant smile to my face, it reminded me of the one at my grandma’s house.  

I die cut this into a “card” and thought it’d make a fun, interactive, card front.  I stamped the sentiment (from Let’s Chat) on the inside and added some 3D foam squares for a little dimension.   All of the items I used can be found at Taylored Expressions and in the link list below.  I hope this post brought a smile to your face and if you have it, I hope you have some fun with this die!  Thanks for stopping by!
