Congrats Grads! {Taylored Expressions}...

Hi crafty friends!  Taylored Expressions has an awesome release today, just in time for graduation season! I have 2 projects....one for graduation and one for a "Way to Go" with a school theme.

First up, this quick and easy card using several new products.

(all supplies linked in my supply list at the end of the post)

Grad Cap Layered Stencil

Cap it Off Numbers

Mini Strips - Grad

The Tassel (previously released)

...oh and don't forget a Rectangle Masking Stencil!

Taylored Expressions

To create this card, I did some ink blending with the new Grad Cap Layering Stencil.  I just picked a few and taped off the rest.  Next, I used my Rectangle Masking Stencil to create the perfect frame around the card front.  I used the Cap it Off Numbers to add in the year and then heat embossed the Mini Strips-Grad Congratulations for the bottom of the card.  Using The Tassel, I stamped and die the cap and added it to the card with foam tape.  To finish the card, I used one of the new black pearls to the center of the cap.

This next card uses a past favorite stamp, Create In Color.  There is a new Create In Color Edger Die released today that cuts out the pencils just perfectly!  I am also using On the Block - Hooray and Full Circle - School.

Taylored Expressions

To create this card, I stamped the Full Circle image in black ink on a white card base.  I colored up a few of the pencil from the Create In Color stamp and die cut them out.  I added them to the card with adhesive.  Next, I stamped and die cut the On the Block - Hooray and popped it up on fun foam.  To finish off the card, I heat embossed the sentiments from Building Blocks - Well Done and added in the "Way to Go" with an adhesive strip.
