Beautiful Soul...

 
Yay for Thursdays because that means it is my Pink & Main day to post. today I am sharing a card that I created using Berry Sweet stamp and coordinating die set along with Layered Rectangles A2 dies, All Occasion Floral paper pad and Cherry Blossom stamp set

I love bear stamps and this set is just so pretty and fun to color. I stamped out all the images and colored with Copic sketch markers, then die cut using the coordinating die set. I used the Layered Rectangles A2 dies and die cut on some of P&M All Occasion Floral paper pad. I adhered this background to my card base then started planning my little scene. I sued some foam tape here and there for a little dimension. Finishing up with stamping this pretty sentiment from the Cherry Blossom stamp set. I did a little fussy cutting around the sentiment and adhered to my card also using foam adhesives. 

Make sure to follow Pink & Main for more inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have an awesome Thursday!

Taylored Expressions Spring/Easter 2021 Release...

Welcome everyone to the Taylored Expressions Easter release.
This release is full of Spring/Easter fun and is available now for purchase.

Yes, there is more and I know you all cant wait to see the entire release that I might add is available now. Next up we have this beautiful new Spring Wreath Layering stencil and die that I inked up using TE inks (supply list below) with TE Blender Brushes and die cut using the coordinating die set. I set that aside so I could create my background. I kept up the stencil works with the TE Feathered Stencil for the background using the same ink combo.

I have lots to share with you today. This is a big release from Taylored Expressions and I just know you are going to love it all. Let's start with the new Diamond Botanical and Playful Plaid Background stamp sets. 

I stamped the Playful Plaid background on TE Vellum with Staz-On ink and set aside to let dry. Once it was dry I flipped it over and colored in the squares with Copic sketch markers and adhered to my card base. Next I stamped this gorgeous Diamond Botanical and colored using Copic sketch markers then using the Diamond Masking Stencil I ink blended Lavender Glaze and Strawberry Milkshake with my TE Blender Brushes. I die cut this beautiful image twice. The color I colored and once on some plain white card-stock. I added a little white gel pen polka dots here and there. I took the white diamond die cut and stamped the sentiment using TE Oreo ink. Time to added this beauty to my card. Using Foam adhesives to give it some dimension I added to my card. I doubled up on the foam adhesives for the sentiment so it would pop just a little more.

This release is just full of inspiration and I just know that you are going to love it all. I stamped the Rough Draft Background with Oreo ink directly onto my card base and set aside. I stamped out these beautiful floral images from the new Unexpected Blessings stamp set and colored with Copic sketch markers, then die cut with the coordinating die set. I die cut the Jesus Script on Oreo premium card-stock and for the Backer die I die cut on TE vellum. Next I stamped the new Simple Strips Easter Blessings and die cut using the Simple Strips Well Rounded die. Now time to put the card together. I first added the Jesus Script sentiment and placed the Unexpected Blessings floral images around it. Finishing up with the Simple Strips Easter Blessing sentiment overlaid on the top. I did use some foam tape for dimension. I always love a good pop on my cards.
I am in love with the new Spring Spray stamp set. This flower image was so fun to color and as you can see I went with a simple blank card so you can use it for any occasion. I think you can change the look with the color theme you choose. I have two samples here to show you. I stamped out the image twice and colored with Copic Sketch markers then die cut using the coordinating die set. I set it aside so I could die cut the new Pierced Lattice Cutting Plate on some of TE Preimum card-stock. I went with bold and bright colors. I also cut a piece of TE card-stock for the backer of the Pierced Lattice. The color comes through just enough to pop more color in your card. I added my backgrounds to the card bases using liquid glue and finshing up with added the Spring Spray using foam adhesives to give a little dimension. Totally simple to create.
And we are just getting started. There is more to this Taylored Expression release that you have to see. Head on over to the Taylored Expressions website and stock up on this awesome release. Remember if you spend $100 or more you also get the new freebie stamp set. That is all for today. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

A Little Spring...

 
Today I am on the Pink & Main blog HERE and I am sneak peeking a little bit of the new release coming on the 20th of February. 
 
Today's card was created using the new Love Ewe stamp and coordinating die set, Happy Paper Pad and Happy Mail Enamel Dots. I also used already released Mod Stitched Rectangle dies and Flower Cover Background die. It is always fun to bring out already released Pink & Main and mix it with the new.



 Yay, for a little ink blending background and a fun die to lay over it. I love to mix and match Pink & Main. Who's ready for the new release? Don't you just love this little cutie? I colored with Copic sketch markers and die cut with the coordinating die set. Added a little foam adhesives for dimension and how about those enamel dots? Get more fun details on the Pink & Main blog...

Make sure you check out the entire release on the 20th of February.

With LOVE...

 
 Happy Friday everyone. Some of you might already know but if you do not. We have sold our home and currently in escrow for our new home. So as we wait to close on our new home we are living in a hotel. I have to say it has been an interesting experience. But in a fun note I still get to crafty. I brought all my favorite with me and I have a small table to crafty on. 

So today I created this card using the Taylored Expressions Bursting Blooms. This stamp set is free with order $100 or more. This set is only available this month so if you are planning on ordering I say stock up and get this free Bursting Blooms stamp set for free. CLICK HERE TO SEE IT.

 
For the background I stamped Taylored Expressions: Striped Background on a piece of TE Granny Smith card-stock. I trimmed it to the size of my card base and adhered it. Next I stamped out this gorgeous Brusting Blooms image and colored using Copic sketch markers. I did a little fussy cutting because I wanted to give it a little dimension. Finishing up with stamping out this sweet sentiment that is also included in this stamp set and die cut using TE Double Ended Flag Stacklets dies.

Really a simple card to create and I kind of went a little wild with color. I think you know how I like to mix colors you don't normally see together. Go WILD..

Have a great weekend.
Thank you for stopping by.

Roll With It...

Today I am on the Pink & Main blog and I am sharing a card that I created using the new Roll With It stamp and Coordinating die set. I also used the Mask it Rectangle stencil with Ranger Oxide inks and P&M Ergonomic Blender Brush for the background.

I went with a simple card design that took no time at all to create. 


I love the masking stencils and how easy they are to use. I created this fun colorful background using the Mask it Rectangle stencil. I stamped out these adorable images and colored with Copic sketch markers. Next I die cut them using the coordinating die set and added to my card using foam adhesives for dimension. Finishing up with stamping this fun sentiment. 

Nothing like a colorful but simple card. For more Pink & Main inspiration make sure to follow P&M on social media.

Taylored Expressions: Field Notes 2 Kit Release

Happy Tuesday everyone.
Welcome to Taylored Expressions Field Notes 2 Kit Release


We are gearing up for spring and this new Field Notes Kit release is now available. 

This kit comes with pre-cut watercolor paper so I stamped out this gorgeous floral image using Staz-on and colored with some misc. watercolors. TE offers watercolors and also sells the Karin Brushmarkers that would color these flowers perfectly. 

I die cut the floral image using the coordinating die set that is also included in this kit and set aside. I stamped the Splatter Background also using Staz-on and then water-colored strips on for the background. In the negative space I added a piece of TE Oreo card-stock then I used foam adhesives on my floral image and added to the card to give it some dimension. Finishing up with stamping this beautiful sentiment that I trimmed and adhered with foam adhesives for more dimension.

You can see the black background coming from behind the floral image. 


So many fun ways to create with this kit here is another example..


I love me some stripes so I cut some strips of TE card-stock (Toffee, Confetti Cake and Blue Corn) this is a great time to use those scraps. I adhered them using double sided tape and I only added them to half the card. If you have long strips just trim to the size of the card.

Next I stamped out this beautiful floral image and colored with Copic sketch markers. Yellow is one of my favorite colors and I thought it would really pop off this background. I die cut with the coordinating die that is included in the kit. I stamped a few of the splatters and this cool corner that also coming in the stamp set. The image was added using foam tape to give it a little dimension. 

I cut another strip of TE Toffee card-stock and trimmed for my sentiment then added also using foam tape. Finishing up with a sweet bow using the Burlap string that we all love. 
 

Taylored Expressions Field Notes 2 Kit is now available.
Head on over and get your shopping on.

Have a great day!

Angel Hugs...

Today I am on the Pink & Main blog and I am getting crafty with the new Little Cherubs stamp and coordinating die set. I also used the Rose Garden Layering Stencil and Mask it Heart Stencil. Mixing it all up today to create a simple card. 


I started with the Mask it Heart Stencil, Ranger Oxide inks and P&M Ergonomic Blender brush. I used to inks and blended them together to get the ombre look. Next I used the Rose Garden Layering Stencil, this stencil comes with three layering stencils but I only used two of them on this card. I also used Ranger Oxide inks and my handy dandy P&M Ergonomic Blender brush. Makes for blending ink super easy. 

Next I stamped out the new Little Cherubs stamp and colored with Copic Sketch markers. Perfectly die cut with the coordinating die set. I added to my card using foam adhesives to give a little dimension. Finishing up with stamping this sweet little sentiment. 

Totally simple and you get to mix up those fun stencils to create a pretty background.

Taylored Expressions: St. Patricks Day Mini Release

Happy Tuesday everyone and welcome to another fun release from Taylored Expressions
Today is the St. Patrick's Mini Release and it is loaded with cuteness. 


First up we have the new Lucky Leprechaun cling and clear combo. I stamped this cute background some of TE Toffee card-stock and trimmed to measure an A2 card. This stamp set comes with the fill in's for the face and hat all you have to do is ink them up with TE inks. You can go wild with color or keep it traditional. 

Next I used the Lucky Leprechaun stencil that fits perfectly between the Leprechaun  heads. I used my very handy TE Blender Brushes with TE inks and before I took off the stencil I added a little bit of Copic opaque. I adhered the stamped background to my card base and set aside.

I next die cut one of the TE Tag Stacklets 2 tags on some TE Granny Smith card-stock and some TE Vellum. I adhered the vellum to to the card-stock and wrapped some burlap string on top and bottom. I stamped the Lucky Leprechaun background again and die cut one of the heads using the coordinating die set and adhered to my tag using foam tape. I repeated the same steps for die cutting the Little Bits Shamrocks dies and adhered to my tag. Finishing up with stamping out the Mini Strips St. Patricks Day and die cutting with the coordinating Mini Strips die and adhered to my tag. Adhered the tag to the center of the card using foam tape for dimension.





Next up we have the new Shamrocks & Stencil combo. I stamped the background first with TE Oreo ink and then lined up my stencil and pulled out all the green TE inks and blender brushes and started blending. I did not have a set plan I just added green here and there and mixed it all up. I love how the stencil is so easy to line up with the guide that is printed on the stencil. 

I know I need something shinning on my card so I used TE Glitter card-stock with the new Cap it off Alpha dies. I had to die cut twice so I could mix the glitter card-stock. I left out the A so I could use one of the Little Bits Shamrocks that I die cut from the first card. I adhered the HAPPY sentiment using liquid glue except for the shamrock I used foam tape for some dimension. 

Finishing up with stamping the Mini Strips St. Patrick's day and die cutting with the coordinating Mini Strips die. Lots of sentiments to choose from. I just love the entire collection.

The release is NOW AVAILABLE.
Happy Taylored Expressions shopping!
