Happy March! Wow – it’s March already? I’m happy to get to play along today with the Taylored Expressions sneak peeks this month! I have a couple of cards to share today. They were both cards I needed to get right into the mail, so I snapped quick pics.
This first card features two new stamp sets: Sit & Chat and Let’s Talk Sentiments. Plus the coordinating dies for Sit & Chat.
Super simple card that I made for a friend who house-sits/dog-sits/bird-sits for us when we go away. With all that sitting, I thought the chair image would be perfect! Images were watercolored with Zig markers. Background is the TE Paisley Embossing Folder on Oreo cardstock. Then I sponged some white ink over it. The look is a little more subtle in person. I’ve loved the Sit & Chat set from the moment I first saw the initial illustrations. I can’t wait to play with it a lot more!
My second card features a totally different type of chair. This is the new Build-a-Scene Bistro die set (it comes with the cups and vase and flowers!) Once again I used the Paisley embossing folder for background. This time I used watercolor paper and before embossing, I used the smoosh technique with some distress inks. The sentiment is again from the new Let’s Talk Sentiments stamp set. It was stamped on the Band It die. The Let’s Talk Sentiments were designed to go with the three new Bubble dies, but honestly it’s just a great little set that covers practically everything and along with the Bubbles it works well with both of the Band It dies as well as lots of other smaller tag and frame dies! It’s just right when you need a smaller sized sentiment!
This card was created for a friend who I so wish was close enough for a lunch date, but for the moment we’ll share coffee across the miles with this scene.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to head over to the TE Blog to follow the hop today and see what the Creative Team has cooked up! You’ll also want to answer Taylor’s question of the day to be entered into today’s prize drawing!
