Taylored Expressions April Release..

Hey crafty friends!  I am stopping in today with some cards using some brand new products from Taylored Expressions designed by my friend Heather Nichols.  I was overjoyed when they asked me to join in for today's release.  

The products I am sharing today have a graduation theme.  I have 3 clean and simple cards using a combination of several products...

Grad Collection:

This first card uses Star Fall Background,  and The Tassel and Coordinating Die...

Taylored Expressions

To create this card, I stamped the Star Fall Background in gray ink on a light gray card base.  I used my Misti and lined up the Hats off to the Grad sentiment in the center of the card.  Instead of stamping the graduation cap, I just used a white die cut and popped that up on foam tape above the sentiment.

Banner Year Stamp and Die Combo is a fun new set with load of possibilities.  I stamped and die cut 5 banners in rainbow order, using Taylor's amazing ink.  These are some of the first red rubber stamps I've used in a very long time and I was just blow away by the quality of image they produced.  The red rubber gives an amazingly crisp end result!

Taylored Expressions

I lined the banner up along the bottom of the card base and curled the tops out for a little dimension.  I stamped and heat embossed the celebrate sentiment on a a strip of cardstock and then added that to the banner with foam tape.  This would work great for a birthday card!

This last card is another version of my first card.  I just wanted to try out that Star Fall Background in gold ink....

I stamped a different sentiment this time and added the grad cap die cut off to the side with foam tape.

This new Grad Collection is amazing and if you need a quick card, you will have no problem creating  lots of cards for this upcoming occasion!
