It’s Release Day at Taylored Expressions, so that means everything that has been peeked this week is now available! There were so many things I wanted to play with to show you today, but the thing I absolutely couldn’t resist was the new Fresh Florals stamp set along with the new TE inks!
When I was in the throws of purging from my stamp room last week, one of the things I found myself having trouble letting go of was floral stamp sets. So, naturally I took to Facebook to ask my stamping friends if I should let them go. These are people who had told me to purge practically every other item I had asked about all week. However, when it came to floral sets, the response I got from pretty much all of them was “You can’t have too many flowers!” That seems to be pretty universal among stampers. So you can understand my excitement over this new set!
I paired the stamp set with the coordinating dies and the coordinating Garden Party embossing folder. I inked the inside of the folder with lemon Meringue ink and ran the same color cardstock through. The ink just makes the design “pop” more. The frame is from the new Frame in Frame 2 cutting plate. You know I can never get enough of the bright yellow and pink color combo!
For the sentiment I turned again the Care & Comfort – Pets. From the very beginning of this stamp set, I pictured this particular sentiment for lots more than sympathy cards.
I stamped the sentiment with Oreo ink on to the white cardstock and then I covered the whole little panel with Versamark and heat embossed it with kaleidoscope embossing powered. It’s so super sparkly and just gives the whole card such a special feel. This sentiment reminds us to love freely and deeply and to let go when we need to.
