taylored expressions - snarky, fun & funny


Hey, everyone! There's a snarky, fun, and funny release happening at Taylored Expressions today! TE is well known for is sarcastic and snarky stamps in their collection and there are a few new additions: the Mini Strips - Fun & Funny stamp, the Simple Strips - Snarky stamp, and the new Simple Strips - Asymmetrical die.

The new products that I am sharing today are available to purchase RIGHT NOW in the Taylored Expressions webstore!

(I am also sharing a post today with projects featuring new products for the Nature Lover release at The Greetery - make sure to check it out!) 


For both of the projects that I am sharing today, I used the Hi, Hey, Hello Background that is the incentive stamp for the month of January that you can earn with any order of $100 or more. For more information, CLICK HERE.

To create the background on this card, I did a rainbow blend with Pink Champagne, Potato Chip, and Confetti Cake inks on Sugar Cube cardstock. I love how I only have to use three colors to create a whole rainbow effect! I stamped the Hi, Hey, Hello Background in Versamark ink over the top and embossed it with white embossing powder.


I decided to create a shaker card and used a Stitched Frame Stacklets 1 die to create the shaker element. I filled the shaker with Bits & Pieces - Full of Heart confetti and Snow Flurries sequins and then added the sentiment strips on the top of the shaker window from the Mini Strips - Fun & Funny stamp. I thought it was fun to do these three sentiments with the Hi, Hey, Hello Background! For a final touch I added a few glittered hearts under the sentiment strips.



This card kind of tells it like it is...right? I used the No Drama Llama die collection to create the llama and have her saying 'hey' to get your attention for her important announcement...! They 'hey' speech bubble is trimmed out from the Hi, Hey, Hello Background that was stamped on Sugar Cube cardstock with Oreo ink.

I set the llama in a rectangle that I blended with the Masking Stencils - Rectangles over the Hi, Hey, Hello Background. The blended rectangle adds the perfect landing spot without having to add another layer of cardstock to the card.


I stamped the Simple Strips - Snarky stamp with Oreo ink onto Blue Raspberry cardstock and cut out the strips with the Simple Strips - Asymmetrical die. Besides the sentiments that I used on this card, there are so many sarcastic and snarky combinations that will make you laugh out loud! I added the strips underneath the llama using foam sticky strips to pop them up.
