TE Release Day: Oodles of hearts

Hello everyone!

Today is release day at Taylored Expressions but before you hop over there to get a crafty fix I have several projects that I wanted to share with you.

First up I used the Heart of Hearts stamp set to make a quick card.


The flower image fits perfectly in one of the Heart Stacklets dies and the set comes with a heart die that I used to cut out a smaller heart from felt. I used my sewing machine for the first time in forever to stitch the hearts together.


A little embossing, a sentiment flag, and enamel dots finished the card.


For my second card I pulled out the new Love is an Adventure stamp set and created a simple outdoor scene. I paper pieced the balloon from various designer papers and cardstock.


I wanted a tiny sentiment so I used the “much love” from the Critter Correspondence stamp set. I finished the card with a bit of twine and a few pink enamel dots.


For my final project I used the Quick Critters stamps and dies set to make a couple of cute Valentine tags. I used the piggy and doggy yesterday so today I just had to feature the cow and owl.


The cow says “moo.”


And the owl goes “hoot.”


To make the tags I die cut various layers from cardstock/designer paper using the Build a Tag 2 die set. So easy! The hardest part was tying the bows on top.
