Taylored Expressions January Technique: Negative Die Cutting!

5:43 PM 0 Comments

Hello! I have a fun and super simple card to share with you today using the Negative Die Cutting Technique:) I started by using my Stitched Heart Stacklets to cut a heart out of some Cherry Pop cs and then layering that over some Doodlebug Sweet Things dp. I cut two more hearts using smaller Stitched Heart Stacklets and popped them up with foam tape over the larger heart. 

I added the border using the Stitched Scallop Edger and more Doodlebug Sweet Things dp. I layered my whole panel over a base cut out of Sugar Cube cs and stamped with a sentiment from the In My Heart Stamp Set.

Like I said, super simple but I love how it came out! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful rest of your day!

Taylored Expressions January Release Day: Picture Perfect Smile/Hello!

10:00 AM 0 Comments

Hello! It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions which means that all of the new products are available NOW in the TE Store!!!

For my final project this release, I used the adorable new set Happy Hens Petite Stamp and Die Combo along with one of the fun new Picture Perfect Smile/Hello frames! I cut my Hello frame out of Oreo cs and layered that over some Sugar Cube cs that I embossed with the new Chicken Wire Embossing Folder-LOVE!!! I then used an Egg Stacklets Die to cut out my egg, and I sponged around it with Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink. I stamped my sweet image with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics, and cut it out with the included dies. I popped it up over my egg and it was complete!


On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Happy Hens set and another hen image which you can barely see in the left lower corner!

10:00 AM 1 Comments

Hello! It's Day 3 of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions! All of the new products will be available on Thursday, January 7th at 7 AM PST!

For my first peek today, I used the adorably fun new set called Oceans of Fun Petite Stamp & Die Combo! I stamped all my darling sea creatures with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I cut them out with the included dies. I built my ocean scene using the Build a Scene Rolling Hills and Build a Scene Rolling Waves Dies. The "sky" was embossed with the Cloudy Days Embossing Folder and the sentiment cut out with a Stitched Circle Stacklets Die. Love this sweet set!!!


For my second card, I used another adorable set called Forest Friends Petite Stamp & Die Combo. I stamped the deer with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics, and cut it out with the included dies. The tree was cut with the Birch Tree Border Die out of Toffee cs and layered over some Sugar Cube cs embossed with the new Flower Power Embossing Folder. I cut the bottom of the Sugar Cube cs with the new Postage Stamp Edger Die and then layered that over some Peapod cs. I adhered the tree and deer, along with a sentiment that was cut out with a Stitched Banner Stacklets Die. So cute:)

Taylored Expressions January Sneak Peeks: Block Party-Hello and Simply Succulents!

10:00 AM 1 Comments

Hello! It's Day 2 of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions! All of the new products will be available on Thursday, January 7th at 7 AM PST!

For my first peek today, I used the fun new Block Party-Hello Die! I first used the die to cut a piece of Pebbles Happy Day! dp, then cut a strip of Sugar Cube cs to layer over the top. I used more Pebbles Happy Day! dp to layer behind the die. I then added these sweet flowers cut with the Bloomers 1 Dies. Super simple but I just love how it came out!


For my second peek, I used the darling new Simply Succulents Petite Stamp & Die Combo. I paper pieced the flower box using more Pebbles Happy Day! dp and then stamped the image again so I could cut out the front flowers and pop them up with foam tape. The image was colored with Copic Markers. I layered my flower box over a panel cut with the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets and sponged using the Cloud Border Die. I then stamped a sentiment from the set and cut it out with a Stitched Banner Stacklets Die. I added a some twine and called it complete!
