taylored expressions - quad colors - napa valley + video

Hey, everyone! I am back with a project to share that I created with another one of the new Quad Colors collections from Taylored Expressions. I used the Quad Colors - Napa Valley collection to create my project and also have a video to share that shows you the process from start to finish!

Each of the twelve Quad Colors collections include 4 colors and includes 4 mini ink pads (one of each color) and 8 sheets of cardstock (2 of each color). You can order the Quad Colors combinations now from the Taylored Expressions webstore.

The Quad Colors Napa Valley collection includes the colors: Sweet Potato Pie, Raspberry Sorbet, Olive, and Mulled Wine. It's a pretty and rich color palette that is perfect for floral cards like the one I created. I can also see this color combination being great for autumn themed projects!

Watch the video below to see how my project came together:

In the video, I share how to use your Blender Brushes and inks to darken the colors of your cardstock. Normally when I use the Layer it - Rustic Florals die collection, I would die cut the pieces from different colors of cardstock. Using the Quad Colors gives me a limited palette and forced me to get creative to solve the need for different shades of color. Blender Brushes to the rescue!

I actually wasn't sure about the Sweet Potato Pie color and thought I might leave it off my project. I created flowers with it anyways just to see how it would look, played around with the arrangement, and ended up leaving it in. I love how everything turned out and now I can't imagine my project without it!

The stems stamped with Sugar Cube ink coming out from behind the florals are stamped with the Spring Stems set. It was a neutral way to give the floral focal piece a place to set on the card. The sentiment on my project is from the Aflutter stamp set.
