Sweet Birthday Wishes

Hi guys, I’m back today with a card that uses paper piecing and some gorgeous pattern paper from Taylored Expressions!  I used this adorable set, Sip Sip Hooray & Die Combo and Build a Scene Pattern Paper to create my scene.

First I stamped my images and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  I then stamped the umbrella and cart again onto pattern paper, fussy cut them, and adhered them to the die cuts.  I colored the rest of the images in with Copics.

The sentiment was stamped with Oreo Premium Ink and die cut from Stitched Banner Stacklets.  If you haven’t tried the new Premium Inks yet, I’d encourage you to keep these in mind. They offer excellent coverage and the inks are nice and vibrant!  Also, Oreo (black) is nice and crisp and perfect for watercoloring and using alcohol based markers.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing You a Bright Sunshiny Day

Hi guys, today is Release Day at Taylored Expressions and all of the new products are now available!  This release has been so refreshing and fun, a perfect start to summer!  Today I used a stamp set that was previously released, Sunshiny Day, and the NEW dies that were made coordinate with it.

I stamped my images and cut my images and colored them with Copics.  I wanted my images to pop and so I used Oreo cardstock as my card base and layering pieces.  I couldn’t help myself and had to use several new products, Banner Stacklets 4 and Chevron Embossing Folder.

If you’re like me, then getting good ink coverage is important.  I am pleased to say that I was able to get excellent ink coverage with Taylored Expressions Inks!  I can’t tell you how excited this makes me, even the light colors have gorgeous coverage.  I used Light as a Feather & Die Combo, along with the new inks in Lemon Meringue, Lollipop, Granny Smith, Cookie Monster and Oreo, and I was able to get crisp impressions on the first try.  I was immediately impressed with the coverage of these dye inks and can’t wait for you to try them too!

Happy Birthday and a Give Away!

DecoFoilGraphic1

Hi everyone! Today I’m back with a fun card using Deco Foil from Therm O Web and a chance to let you know of a give away.  Taylored Expressions is partnering with Therm O Web for a full week of inspiration and a chance to win some prizes!  **Details on how to win are at the end of this post**

Today’s card uses Deco Foil in Lime, Lilac, Lila and Aqua, and Deco Foil Toner sheets.  Foiling has been a fun trend and is super easy to do.  I die cut my pieces with the Deco Foil Toner Sheets, placed Deco Foil on top of the toner die cuts, ran it through my laminator and had beautifully foiled die cuts!

Therm O Web has so many pretty colors of foil to choose from.  Did you know you can foil without needing heat, by using an adhesive pen or Die Cutting White Foam Adhesive?  I I have also used double sided tape with Deco Foil and had excellent results.

*TIP* If you see or feel any bumps in your toner die cuts, use a bone folder to smooth it out.  This will ensure the entire die cut will be foiled.

Taylored Expressions will be giving away a Deco Foil Prize Pack and Therm O Web will be giving away a $50 Gift Certificate to the Taylored Expressions Store. Details on how to enter can be found on the Taylored Expressions blog and the Therm O Web blog.

Thanks for stopping by and have fun checking out all the inspiration this week!

Life is an Adventure

Hi guys, today all of the new products are now available at Taylored Expressions!  I hope you have enjoyed the Sneak Peeks this week!  I’m using an oldie, but goodie, Happy Trails along with new dies for this set, Happy Trails Trailers and Happy Trails Accessories.  I love the images in this set and decided to create a little camp scene.

Besides the new Happy Trails dies, I also used Build a Scene Lakeside Border for the water and I know I’ll be using this die a lot.  I found myself reaching for this water die over and over, wanting to use it in my projects.  Maybe I love it because it looks like the gentle ripples of water on the lakes we have here in MN, or maybe I love it because it’s just so cute?  Either way, I love Build a Scene Lakeside Border and am excited about using this die more!

Thinking of You

Hi everyone!  I’m back today with a fun project that uses felt, felt, and more felt!  I love how felt makes my projects look, soft and ready to touch .  I used a lot of Build a Scene dies for my card and always love how the Build a Scene series makes my cards come alive.

The trees were cut with Robin’s Egg, Cherry Blossom, Mustard, Cobblestone and Grass Green.  Taylored Expressions Felt is 100% wool and cuts beautifully.  I didn’t have to cut any of the pieces by hand and love how cleanly this felt die cut.  I hope you like using felt as much as I do!

Thanks for stopping by!
