Sending Hugs...


Happy Thursday everyone.. today I am on the Pink & Main blog HERE and I am getting crafty with Pink & Main: Mini Hug Bear stamp and coordinating die set, Mod Stitched Rectangle Dies, Always stamp and coordinating die set, All Occasion Florals paper pad and Puffy Heart stencil. 

The new release is now available and it is all amazing.


I first used the Puffy Heart stencil for the background and then used the new Mod Stitched Rectangle Dies on some of the new All Occasion Florals paper. I am in a pink and purple mood, just in case you have not noticed. LOL

Next I stamped out my images and colored with Copic sketch markers. Cut them out perfectly with the coordinating die sets. The Mini Hug Bear stamp and coordinating die set is free with $50 orders (until supplies last). I used some foam adhesives to give a little dimension.

Hello... I Heart You!

 

Happy Wednesday everyone. Who is in a Valentine's mood? With all the cute Valentine's stuff coming out I just can't resist. So today I created a card using the new Taylored Expressions....

Love From Max & Millie stamp and coordinating die set, Building Blocks: Love Additions stamp and coordinating dies, Mini Slim Masking Stencil: Mini Slim Windows, Candy Cane Stripes Stencil and TE inks: Jelly Donut, Lavender Glaze, Guava, Pink Champagne, Sugar Cube and Lollipop

I used both of the TE Stencils Candy Cane Stripes and Mini Slim Windows stencils with TE inks and blender brushes to create this background. I wanted lots of color and well with the masking stencils that comes easy. 

I stamped out all the images and colored with Copic Sketch markers and die cut with the coordinating die set. The images are adhered to the card using foam adhesive to give a little dimension. Finishing up with stamping the Building Blocks Love Addition and die cut with the coordinating dies. All done...

Taylored Expressions: Mini & Simple Strips Release


Happy Tuesday everyone. Today is another fun release from Taylored Expressions. Time to add to your Mini & Simple Strips collection. Let's get a little Snarky today. I am in love with this new Simple Strips Snarky set because it is saying it like it is. We all need that every now and then. 

I stamped the Striped Background stamp on some TE Confetti Cake card-stock using TE Oreo ink. I adhered that to my card base. Next I stamped this adorable Max image from the Max & Millie stamp set and colored with Copic sketch markers, then die cut with the coordinating die set. I added some dimension to Max using TE Foam Sticky strips. 

Finishing up with stamping this cool sentiment from the new Snarky Simple Strips stamp set and die cut with the new Asymmetrical die set. I wanted the sentiment to stand out so I stamped it on some TE Jelly Donut card-stock.

Next up is the release of the Fun & Funny Mini Strips stamp set. I paired it up with TE new Half a Heart Layering Stencil and Hearts of Plenty stamp and coordinating die set. I wanted my card to be very colorful so I used many different TE inks to create this Half a Heart Layering Stencil background. With the TE blender brushes this was totally easy to do. 

I cut out a piece of TE Vellum using the Mini Slim Trifold Template + Dies Square Set. I angled it in the center and adhered it to my card base. Next I stamped and die cut a few of Hearts of Plenty on some TE card-stock and adhered to the center of the cut vellum. I did use some of TE Foam Sticky Circles for some dimension. Time to stamp out these fun new sentiments from the Fun & Funny Mini Strips stamp set and die cut with the very handy coordinating Mini Strips die set. I also used TE Foam Sticky Strips to adhere the sentiments for more dimension.

Happy Tuesday everyone. 
Welcome to another fun Taylored Expressions card kit release. 


This kit is called Happy Hex Monogram and it is full of fun ways to personalizing some fun note cards. Today I am sharing you 6 ways you can use this kit. Each card is unique. 

I have the first three cards that I stamped the Happy Hex background stamp set using TE inks. (supply list is below) The orange card I used the Happy Hex clear stamp set and stamped here and there these fun dots design. 

The red card is first stamped using the Happy Hex background stamp with TE inks and then I used the stencil that is included in this kit with the TE blender brushes. The stencil lines up perfectly in the middle of the happy hex background stamp. I also added a few hearts here and there that is part of the clear stamp set included in the kit. 

Next is the yellow card that again stamped using the Happy Hex background stamp set and TE inks. This set comes with two hex dies. I die cut the hex multiple times on TE colored card-stock and adhered to the center of each hex. On all three cards I used the larger hex die and die cut on TE card-stock, stamped with sentiments included in the clear stamp set and adhered to the center of the larger hex. 


Green card: stamped using the Happy Hex background stamp set and TE inks. I die cut the Happy Hex dies multiple times on TE colored card-stock and adhered to the center of the stamped hex. I also die cut one of the larger hex dies and stamped with my favorite letter using the Typewriter Alpha clear stamp set that is also included in the kit. 

Purple card: stamped using the Happy Hex background stamp set and TE inks. I used the Happy Hex Stencil and TE inks and blender brushes. This stencil perfectly lines up with the Happy Hex background stamp set. I stamped this fun design from the Happy Hex clear stamp set on the top of the stencil. I also die cut one of the larger hex dies and stamped with my favorite letter using the Typewriter Alpha clear stamp set that is also included in the kit. 

Blue card: stamped using the Happy Hex background stamp set and TE inks. I used the Happy Hex Stencil and TE inks and blender brushes. I also die cut one of the larger hex dies and stamped with my favorite letter using the Typewriter Alpha clear stamp set that is also included in the kit.

Today I am on the Pink & Main blog HERE and I am getting crafty with Pink & Main: Slimline Sayings 1 stamp set, Pastel Dreams paper pad, Reverse Scallop Rectangle dies and Stitched Bows dies. Lots of fun P&M today.

I am also happy to say that I am staying on the Pink & Main design team for another year. I am so honored and blessed to be on this team of lovely ladies. 


Who doesn't love a card full of pretty bows? I used the P&M Stitched Bows die set and die cut on a few different colors of card-stock. They are so small and fun to glue together. I added this border using the Reverse Scalloped  Rectangle die set. Finishing it up with this DARLING sentiment.. Totally simple just lots of die cutting and glueing together. 

That is all for today.

Taylored Expressions: Valentines Release...

Happy New Year everyone. I am starting out my new year with the Taylored Expressions Valentines release. I know you all are ready for some fun Valentines stamps, dies and stencils.... RIGHT?

Today I am sharing a card using the new Hearts A Plenty Background stamp set, Love from Max & Millie stamp and coordinating die set and Tag Team Valentine stamp set.

I stamped the background directly onto my card base but as you can see I used different colors for each heart so you know what that means. I inked up one heart at a time using lots of TE inks that remind you of the Valentine season. It took no time at all just had to use some Post It notes around each heart so that I was only inking up one heart with the color of choice. (supply list below) Next I stamped out this adorable Millie image from the new Love from Max & Millie stamp set and colored with Copic sketch markers then die cut with the coordinating die set. I wanted a few more hearts so I stamped the Hearts of Plenty Background and used the coordinating die set that comes with the Hearts of Plenty Background stamp set. On one heart I stamped this little Love You on from the Tag Team Valentines and the others I used as a float under Millie.


Next up we have the awesome new Heart of Heart Layered Stencil that I ink blended using TE inks on TE Jelly Donut card-stock. This comes with two stencils so before I took off the stencil I splattered a little Copic Opaque so it was only on the heart inked area. Make sure to let dry before adding the second stencil. 

I inked up this new On The Block LOVE stamp with TE inks. (supply list below) I was going for an ombre look. I die cut with the coordinating die set. I actually die cut a couple extras and layered with the inked LOVE so it gave the sentiment some dimension. Finishing up with this sentiment from the new Building Blocks Love Additions stamp set that was die cut with the coordinating Building Blocks die set.



This card was created using the new Stencil Strips Love (this stencil set comes with 6 stencils) I used the hearts on this card with the TE Cherry Pop ink pad and my handy dandy TE Blender Brushes. I also added some fun strips of TE colored card-stock. How pretty is this sentiment? It is from Handlettered Love and die cut with the coordinating die set. I stamped the sentiment also using Cherry Pop. To give the the sentiment some dimension I die cut the coordinating die three times and layered on top of each other. You only need to have one stamped as that is the only one you will see.


 

There is lots more to see from this release so make sure to check out Taylored Expressions social media pages and if you follow the design team you will see lots of amazing inspiration using the new release.  #tayloredexpessions

Matchbox Stories...


Happy Wednesday everyone. Today I am on the i-crafter blog and I am sharing this awesome new Matchbox Stories die that released earlier this month. I also paired it up with the Wonderful World stamp set. Today is also my last post being on the i-crafter design team. It has been fun and I am always grateful for the opportunity of designing for a company. 


This little Matchbox Stories die is so fun and totally easy to put together. I used some fun designer paper that would be bright and colorful. I went with the them of LOVE. I mean we are thinking of Valentines already right? I know time sure does fly.


Inside my Matchbox Stories I added things that are all about love. I used some wood veneers but really you could stick anything small in this box so the person you gave it too would have something fun to remember or something fun to look forward too. You can get really creative with this.

You can read more about it on today's i-crafter blog post here. 

Thanks for stopping by.
Have the most awesome day today.

YAY Christmas is just a couple days away.
