Taylored Expressions: Grad/Teacher/Building Blocks Release...

Yay it is almost time for the seniors to graduate and time for a fun...

Taylored Expressions Grad/Teacher release

Lots to share today wit this fun release and I am pretty exciting about it. Today I am featuring the new Taylored Expressions: On the Block Hooray, Building Blocks Well Done and Create in Color Background and coordinating die. 

I went a little wild with color on this one just because your graduation is suppose to be wild and bright... right? I used lots of TE premium card-stock... Oreo, Granny Smith, Cookie Monster, Plum Punch, Lime Zest and Toffee. 

Let's get started I heat embossed the On the Block Hooray on some of TE Oreo card-stock and die cut with the coordinating die and set aside. I also heat embossed the Create in Color background on some of TE Toffee card-stock and die cut with the coordinating die, then set aside. Time to create that colorful background. I stamped the new Building Blocks Well done multiple times on all of these yummy TE colors and die cut with the Building Blocks die. Once they are all die cut out I started piecing it all together on my card base. I only did the part that would be showing. No need to do the entire card as the Create in Color Background would be hiding the rest. I added the Create in Color Background using foam adhesives for a little dimension. Finishing up with added my heat embossed Hooray. 

I finished but thought I need a little shine so I added a strip of TE Silver Glitter card-stock.

Supply list below...

Next up we have the new Taylored Expressions: Congrats die, Cosmic Drip Drops, Grad Cap Stencil, Mini Strips Grad stamps. Lots of new goodies to help you create your Graduation cards. I also used TE Frame in Frame cutting plate and TE Oreo ink and card-stock and Cilantro ink and Card-stock. This was personalized just for my niece who is graduating this year. 

I first used the new Grad Cap stencil with my TE Blender Brushes and Cilantro and Oreo inks. I die cut one of the frames from TE Frame in Frame cutting plates on some of TE Oreo Premium card-stock. I love this new Congrats die and I really wanted to pop on my card so I die cut on some of TE Gold card-stock. 

Next I heat embossed the new Mini Strips Grad on TE Cilantro card-stock and die cut with the coordinating dies. This set has so many fun says I added a few of my favorites. I adhered all my pieces together to create this fun sentiment filled Graduation card. When I added the frame I used foam tape to give my card a little dimension. 

Finishing up with a little shine, I added a few Cosmic Drip Drops.
