Taylored Expressions: Butterfly Wishes Cardmaking Kit Release...

 Happy Tuesday.

Today is the Taylored Expressions Butterfly Wishes Kit release.

I know you all are gonna love this.. it is full of spring fun.

This kit is so pretty and makes the prettiest butterflies. You can go wild with color. I stamped directly onto my card base the stems of the butterflies. This is a larger rubber stamp that is included in the kit. Then I lined up the coordinating stencil and started adding my ink using TE Blender Brushes and Premium inks.. Gumball, Salt Water Taffy, Granny Smith, Keylime, Pineapple and Lemon Meringue. Lots and lots of color. You can really mix any colors together for a colorful card full of pretty butterflies.

Next I added the special wing details that is included in the kit as a clear stamp set. Very easy to line up and get that pretty detail on the butterflies. 

I thought this would be a great Mother's Day card so I used the TE Stitched Mini Slim Stacklets and die cut onto some white card-stock and layered on top of it the TE Double Ended Flag Stacklets that I die cut onto some TE Cookie Monster card-stock. I stamped this sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes Sweet Sentiment clear stamp set that is included in the kit and added the flag to the mini slim stacklet using foam adhesives for a little dimension. Then adhered to the card base. Finishing up with wrapping some burlap string and tying a bow. 

I love that the kit comes with envelopes and these sweet coordinating butterfly envelope seals.

Here is a softer look to this set. I stamped out the stems using TE Toffee Premium ink and with the stencil I used TE Granny Smith, Confetti Cake and Pink Champagne. I did light ink blending for the soft ink look. This is easily done but dabbing your TE Blender Brushes lightly onto the inks and then again on a separate piece of paper then using on the stencil. This kit also comes with two butterfly dies so I die cut the butterflies out here and there and popped them out using foam adhesives. 

I die cut the mini Slim Temple Circles dies on some Toffee card-stock and adhered to my card base. I added one of the Envelope Sealers as my sentiment. You can use the sealers in many ways. I need a little shine so I added a few TE Gold Drip Drops here and there. 

Make sure to get your hands on this limited kit before it is gone.

Happy Mother's Day...

Today I am on the Pink & Main blog and I am getting crafty with... 

Pink & Main: (NEW) Holographic Set 1, Large Sentiment Strip dies, Mother stamp set, Basket Cover Die and Tall Flowers stamp and coordinating die set.

Hands up with you are loving the new Holographic paper collections? They are great for die cutting and creating fun backgrounds. Plus look at all that shine, got to love it... right?

I started with die cutting the Basket Cover Die on a piece of the new Holographic Set 1. I popped out all the negative pieces and adhered to my card base using the P&M: NEW EZ Squeeze Craft Glue. I then stamped this beautiful floral image from the Tall Flowers stamp set and colored with Copic sketch markers and die cut with the coordinating die set. I added it to my card using foam tape for a little dimension.

Next I stamped this Happy Mother's Day sentiment from the Mother stamp set and die cut with the Large Sentiment Strips dies and added it to my card using more of that fun foam tape.

Another simple card with lots of shine. For sure to bring a big smile from that someone special.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Taylored Expressions: Mother's Day Release...

It is Tuesday and yes that means it is time for another fun Taylored Expressions release.
Time for Spring and Mother's Day is right around the corner. 

I just love floral backgrounds and today I am featuring the new Taylored Expressions: In Bloom cling/clear combo and I paired it up with the new On The Block MOM and already released On the Block Happy and Cap it Off Alphas. 

I started with stamping this pretty In Bloom background and with the clear stamps that are included I added the color using TE inks of course. I used Lavender Glaze, Watermelon, Pink Champagne, Lime Zest, Gumball and Pineapple. If you look closely you will see that I added a little white polka dots where the watermelon ink is. I used lavender Glaze and Pineapple for the On the Block MOM and HAPPY, then die cut using the coordinating die set. I die cut a few more plain mom and happy sentiments so I can use them for dimension. Just layer and glue. Finishing up with die cutting the DAY using the Cap it Off Alphas on some Pineapple and Lavender Glaze TE premium card-stock. Now it is time to add the sentiment to the card base. I used foam tape for the DAY sentiment and with the layers behind the On the Block MOM and HAPPY. they are all popping from the card. 

Next up we have this gorgeous new Taylored Expressions: Circle Botanical and Botanical Sentiments paired up with TE Pierced Circles cutting plate, TE white embossing powder, Silver Drip Drops, Fruit Punch and Blue Corn Premium card-stock and Mini Slim Trifold Template & Dies.I first die cut the TE Pierced Circles cutting plate on some TE Blue Corn Premium card-stock and adhered to my card base. I then heat embossed this new Circle Botanical stamp and I did a little fussy cutting so I could pop it from my card base using foam adhesives. But first I want to cut out the center using the circle dies from the Mini Slim Trifold Temple and Dies set. That is how I got the stitched circle center. I die cut the circle again on some Blue Corn and heat embossed this pretty sentiment from the new Botanical Sentiments stamp set. Time to put the card together. I used lots of foam tape for dimension and I need more shine so I added a few TE Silver Drip Drops here and there. Totally simple to create.


Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy shopping this awesome new release!

Happy Easter...

Happy Easter weekend everyone. Today I am on the Pink & Main blog HERE and I am sharing a little Easter fun with Pink & Main: Let's Polka Embossing Folder, hooray Enamel Dots, EZ Squeeze Crafter Glue, Always stamp and coordinating die set and Sketched Easter stamp and coordinating die set.

Today I am mixing it all up and getting more use of these gorgeous stamp sets and adding some texture with P&M embossing folders and enamel dots. 

I embossed the Let's Polka embossing folder on two different colors of card-stock and glued to my card base ising the new EZ Squeeze Craft Glue (which I might add is pretty awesome and clean to use, plus it drys quickly). I then stamped out all of my images and colored using Copic Sketch markers and die cut using the coordinating dies. I stamped the Happy Easter sentiment from the Sketched Easter stamp set and it fit prefect. I adhered the heart from Always using again the EZ Squeeze Craft Glue and then the rest of the images using foam adhesives for a little dimension.

 Happy Tuesday everyone.

 I know you all love when TE releases the previous released kits individually and today is the day to start shopping that release. Today I am featuring the Cable Knit Background stamp set from the Like Gnome Other kit. I paired it up with the Pierced Tags Stacklets 2, Be Joyful stamp set and Social Butterflies stamp and coordinating die set. 

I heat embossed the Cable Knit Background using TE White embossing powder on some of TE Jelly Donut premium card-stock and adhered to my card base. I die cut one of the Pierced Tags Stacklets 2 on some white card-stock and stamped the Be Joyful sentiment in the middle using my Misti and TE Oreo ink. Next I stamped out these adorable spring butterflies from the Social Butterflies stamp set using for the base TE Oreo ink and finishing up with TE bold color inks. I die cut the butterflies using the coordinating dies and adhered to my tag using some glue and some foam adhesives for dimension. I added the tag to my card using foam adhesives again for more dimension. I cant get enough. I need a little sparkle so I added two of the TE Silver Drip Drops.

Pink & Main: Stamp Club Release...

Pink & Main is offering a new monthly exclusive stamp and die set.
The first stamp set is called Oh Happy Day and it is available for purchase now and ships on April 10th.

Each month there will be a new stamp set so make sure you subscribe to get your crafty hands on these fun exclusive sets each month.

Let's share a peek of this cute exclusive Pink & Main set. I created this card using the  Pink & Main: Oh Happy Day Stamp and Coordinating die set, Dotty Stencil and Mask it Square Stencil. The images are colored with Copic Sketch markers and die cut using the exclusive coordinating die set. I set those aside so I could create this fun Dotty background.

Pink & Main offers the Ergonomic Blending Brush which makes it so easy to grip and to add your ink using stencils. So I used both with the Dotty Stencil and Mask It Square Stencil. I wanted the images to really pop so that is why I added the square background it kind of highlights... don't you think?

I added the images using foam adhesives for a little dimension and finished up with this cute little sentiment that is also in the exclusive Happy Day set. After adding the images I thought why not add a little polka dot fun on the balloons and the package. So I did. 

So wild with color.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a wonderful day!
