Taylored Expressions October Release Day


Have you been enjoying all of the sneak peeks this week from Taylored Expressions? Hopefully you have found a few new favorites (or a lot!). All of the new products are now available for purchase.

On a personal note - this is probably the most stamps/panels I've illustrated for a single release. I was crazy busy there for a few weeks and may have worn out my Apple Pencil. ;)

So speaking of new stamps, I have a couple more projects to share today using the new sets. The first of which uses three of the new stamp sets. From the Clearly Planned line I used the Candy Cane Alphabet stamp set to create an embossed background, spelling out "joyful" multiple times. Matchy Backgrounds - Holiday was used on the green panel behind the deer. And the deer is from the new Santa & Friends stamp set.

I don't have any wobble springs... yet, so I stacked a couple dimensions to pop the deer's head up higher than his body.

For my second card I used another Clearly Planned stamp set, Jolly Holidays, to make another fun card. I went simpler on this card and sponged watercolor paper for a burst of color and then added the tree image.

I did learn something very important in making this card... be careful combining Distress Oxide inks (which I used on the background) and Nuvo drops. The drops will blend with the ink as they dry and change color. And that new color? May not be the prettiest. Lol.

Thanks for stopping by! Make sure to visit the TE Blog if you haven't already to see more fabulous samples and to find a list of fabulous designers sharing more samples!
