TE Sneak Peeks: Party On!

Hello Crafty Friends -

I'm back with a second post this week for day three of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions. Today we are celebrating the Fourth of July and we have a fun new Patriotic Pals stamp and coordinating dies set (I tried to draw these with serious expressions... lol).

See... so very serious... ;) I just know they have a huge can of party that they are just waiting to use!



And here the complete card is. I didn't have 4th of July themed paper but I did have a Doodlebug paper pack with some great reds and blues so that did the job. I also used the Stitched Banner Stacklet dies and a circle punch for some of the elements. For texture I added some glitter enamel dots and ivory jute.

TE Sneak Peek: Nailed it!

Hello Crafty Friends -

I can't believe how fast the year is going and that it is already May. The upside to time flying is that a new release is just around the corner. Just three more days! And this month we have more grumpiness to share with you. Crafty grumpiness. Five critters that shine a bit of light on the dark side of crafting: glitter catastrophes, picture cropping, paint spills, and more. If you haven't guessed, the new set is Crafty Grumplings and there are coordinating dies because we really don't want any scissor accidents. ;)

I used three of the grumplings to create a set of note cards: 


I kept them simple and used the Craft Grumplings stamp set and dies, Stitched Banner Stacklets, Build a Bookmark Dies, Build a Tag 4 Dies, enamel dots, glitter, cardstock, designer paper, and 100% Wool Felt - Carrot.

Card 1 features a grouchy cow. One too many pricks of the needle has left this character less than pleased.


Card 2 features a crow and glitter... cause crows like shiny things.


Card 3 features a naughty tiger who likes to cut people out of pictures. Heh heh.



And I have another use for the new stamps to share with you. I used the painter bunny and a coordinating sentiment to decorate the May calendar in my planner. Instead of stamping on cardstock I stamped on sticker paper, colored, and diecut. Makes me giggle everytime.

TE Sneak Peeks: Hello Nap!

Hello Crafty Friends -

I'm delighted to share some grumpiness today. Grumpiness of the cute kind! It is Day 3 of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions and we are debuting a bunch of new products including two small sets featuring Grumplings.

For my card today I used the Clocked Out Grumpling Die & Stamp Combo to make a quick retirement card.


This grouchy little cat is all about the chair surfing and naps and more naps. ;) My kind of cat!

You are AWESOME!

Hello! These last few weeks have been a whirlwind of busyness. Lots to do at work, a bit of travel, and plenty of creativeness... illustrating. ;) Which means I haven't been crafting much. But I did want to pop in tonight to share a fun card I made a while back and shared on Instagram.


These little monkeys are from the Monkey Business Stamp & Die Combo set (Taylored Expressions) and they are some of my favorite illustrations. After coloring and cutting them out I created a little scene using the Star Stacklets die set and the grass die from the Build a Scene - Calendar set. I used a sponge dauber and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to add a bit of sky behind the monkeys. Overall a simple but fun card.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope to check back in soon with another project.
