Happy Thursday! It’s Release Day at Taylored Expressions! All the products that have been peeked this week are now available in the TE Webstore! I have quite a variety of samples to share with you today. As I mentioned on Monday, once I got started playing with this stuff, I just couldn’t stop. And really, I’ve only touched the tip of the ice berg with this incredibly fun release! I hope you’ll head over to the TE Blog (once you’ve finished my post, of course!) and see all the new products and go on the hop with the whole Creative Team! SO.MUCH.TO.SEE!!!
My first sample above is a simple sympathy card featuring the new On the Prairie Embossing Folder. I used some Prismacolor pencils to do just a little bit of coloring and then the whole panel was spritzed with Sheer Shimmer Spritz – Sparkle. Of course, you can’t see it in the photo, but it gives the card a beautiful subtle shimmer.
Next up is a pair of little art pieces I made for the girls who work with me in the church office. These are 3.5″ x 5″ acrylic stand up frames – perfect for little desk decor. Of course I used colors to match our office. I used watercolor paper for both of them and embossed these awesome new A la Carte sentiments – He is God and Daughter of the King with black pigment ink and clear powder.
For the first one above, I went for subtle color by painting on the Distress inks with a waterbrush onto very wet watercolor paper. The one below is more bold. I used the smoosh technique. I rubbed the ink from the little Distress cubes onto a large acrylic block and then smooshed that onto the damp watercolor paper.
Nothing is ever quite perfect. Oops – I realized after this was all put together that I forgot to punch the hole out at the top of the tag. LOL! Oh well! My last sample for the week is below and it’s one of my favorites! I love this adorable Petite set, Pixie Dust, with the princess illustrated by Danielle Lounds. I used two of the new Little Bits dies with the previously released Color Block Cutting Plate. This was such a fun card to create!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I haven’t blogged this much in a week in a very long time!
