Taylored Expressions Release Day

September 3rd, 2015

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!!!

 

0Embossed sympathy Jami (Medium)

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.

0King single Jami (Medium)

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!

Happy Wednesday and welcome to day 3 of the Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks for September.  Today I have two more cards to show you featuring the new stamp set C’mon Get Happy along with some adorable new dies, Mini Bloomers and Bloomers Greenery.

0GetHappyJami3 (Medium)

For my first card, I tried embossing the sentiment in white (white ink and white powder) on to Tim Holtz watercolor paper.  The result was cool, but a little hard to read.  So, in the sample below, I used black pigment ink and clear embossing powder and I switched to the smooth side of the watercolor paper.  In both samples, I used Twinkling H2O’s  to paint over the embossed sentiment. (Click on them to see them larger.)

For this card, I cut the blooms from watercolor paper and painted them with the same Twinkling H2O’s used over the sentiment.  The photo just doesn’t capture the pearly, sparkly happiness of this card!

Welcome to Day 2 of the Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks.  TE has a new stamp set coming out that I am particularly excited about it.  It’s called C’mon Get Happy.  I don’t know about you, but I love making cards just for the fun of doing it.  I especially love scene building.  But often, when I am almost done, I struggle to find the right sentiment.  I often want something generic, like “thinking of you” or “just because”, or “sending you smiles” and that’s where this set comes in.  It’s a bunch of simple, happy sentiments both large and small to finish off just about any card!

Today I have two similar cards to share with you.  I’ll tell you why they are so similar, after you take a look.  First is the card I set out to make.

0gethappytreesJami (Medium)

This card features the new Build-a-Scene Trees.  As soon as I got these dies, I knew I wanted to create some pink trees!  Happy, right?  Hard to see in the photo, but the sentiment was stamped in black pigment ink and heat embossed with kaleidoscope embossing powder for a softer sparkly look.

Here’s my second sample.

0gethappyicecreaamJami (Medium)

This time I paired the sentiment with the new Little Bits – Ice Cream Sundae die and added one of the banners from Skinny Mini Party Borders die set.

So why are these cards so similar?  Well, I started off to execute my vision for the first card, but before I got the trees adhered I somehow managed to smudge black ink along that bottom white portion of the main panel.  Have you ever done that?  I was so sad, but I started over.  When I was done with the tree card, I decided there had to be a way to save my first attempt.  I sliced that bottom portion off and away I went!  The lesson here:  don’t be too quick to give up and throw something in the trash!
