Taylored Expressions Patriotic Release...



Taylored Expressions has some amazing new products coming TOMORROW!!  This Patriotic Release has new stencils....STAR masking stencils that I am pretty excited about....sentiment strips and more!

Here is a sneak peek of one of the new Star Masking Stencils in action....


Taylored Expressions


First, I used Taylored's new Plaid Stencil to create the background.  I just masked off the strips for the red and blue look.  Next, I used glaze in the new Star Masking Stencils and let those dry.


Taylored Expressions


I heat embossed all of the new Mini Strips- Patriotic sentiments on blue cardstock and then added 3 of them to the card from with foam tape.  Super easy!  I am just head over heals for the new stars (and that plaid stencil!)


Taylored Expressions


Check out this awesome bundle that will be available tomorrow....



Get the Stars & Strips Bundle for only $30 from June 2nd - June 7th (or while supplies last). And no, that's not a typo... it's STRIPS for the sentiment strips!
The Stars & Strips Bundle includes the Fireworks Stamp & Stencil combo and the Mini Strips - Patriotic stamp.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Columbine Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



Altenew is releasing a new Build-A-Flower today.  The Columbine!  This flower is the state flower of my native state of Colorado.  I always loved seeing these growing wild in the mountains.   So now, I am totally loving this gorgeous stamp set!

Check it out....

Here is today's card....


Altenew


I inked up an acrylic block and added a little water and then stamped it down to create the background.  I used some of that same water with a little more of that lavender fields ink to add in the splatter.


Altenew


Using Bamboo ink, I stamped in the stems directly on the card base and also added in the sentiment in Obsidian Black Ink.  To finish off the card, I inked up the Columbines and leaves and then die cut them with their coordinating dies.  I added the blooms to the card front with foam tape.

Simon Says Stamp


US of CRAFT-AY is a brand new set full of all the most adorable crafty tools and sentiments.  I wanted to create a clean and simple card and I had to incorporate all the sentiments so I came up with this....


Simon Says Stamp


I stamped the main sentiments on the white card base using my Misti and then added in the die cut "rainbow" and the other crafty tools.  I love that sentiment....Make America Craft Again!  So fun!

Simon Says Stamp


I knew this Peony Bouquet stamp would have so many possibilities, but of course, I had to go quick and simple.  


Simon Says Stamp


I inked up the full stamp with Altenew's Rouge Ink and then sponged in some Heartbeat Red in the center.  I stamped in the sentiment from Crafty Bunnies and then added score lines along the bottom to finish it off.

I had to use the US of CRAFT-AY set one more time, so I colored up and die cut all of those adorable tools.

I heat embossed the white embossing powdered sentiment on the red stitched rectangle and then added in all the tools with fun foam.  Last, I added the focal point to a scored base to keep it full of my favorite white space!

The Confetti Collection Day 2 {The Greetery}...


Hello and welcome to day 2 of the full Greetery Reveal!  Before I get started, I wanted to remind you that I will be over on The Greetery's IG at 11am CST today (Thursday)!  I am going to show you all the new products in real time and answer any questions you may have.



Let's get started with today's projects....



The Greetery


This first clean and simple card was made using the new Pinwheel Party Stencils.  These are the most genius stencils and make the most adorable pinwheels on your cards.  I grabbed the little stencils in the pack and added in 3 small pinwheels.  I used the Pinwheel Party Stamps to add in that big sentiment and little stars all in black ink.  I traced the sentiment in Glossy Accents to make it pop!

I wanted to use the Pinwheel Party dies with that adorable Let's Party sentiment, so I added it to one of the Balloon Bouquet balloons.  I figure with these soft yellows and oranges, this "Let's Party" means a garden party!  LOL!  I added in some masked strips with yellow in the background and then layered the balloon and sentiment to finish it off.

Using the Pinwheel Stencils again, I created a vertical card used the 4 stencil set.  These are so fun to work with and SO easy to line up with the etched lines.  I used the negative of the lets' party from my second card and popped it up on fun foam.  I finished this card off with some confetti dies and sequins.

Last but not least, I used the new Cake Pops Dies in a different way than intended.  I used The Greetey's Tag dies to create a set of tags perfect for a party!  

In this mix here are the Cake Pops Die Collection, the Cake Pops Numbers Candles Die Collection, Cake Pop Banner Die Collection and the Cake Pop Sentiments Mini Stamp Set.  I had so much fun making  these tags and adding all the details in.  Check out the Greetery Blog to see what they are really intended for!  :)
