taylored expressions - mother's day release


Hey, everyone! Today is the Mother's Day release at Taylored Expressions! I have a few projects to share with you today with the new products that are all things botanical and new sentiment options that feature Mother's Day and more.

The new products for the Mother's Day release are available to purchase RIGHT NOW in the Taylored Expressions webstore!


This first pair of cards are created with the new Picked Posies stamp set that I illustrated! There are also coordinating dies available and the Gathered Greenery Background stamp.

The images in the stamp set are wonderful to use with your favorite coloring technique. For my projects, I did a technique that is almost a "cheater" method of coloring! I die cut the different elements from colored cardstock and then added shading with my blender brushes. The pink flowers are Guava cardstock with Fruit Punch ink, the leaves are Avocado cardstock with Olive ink, and then yellow flowers are Pineapple cardstock with Candy Corn ink.


The background is stamped using the Gathered Greenery Background with Sugar Cube ink on Toffee cardstock. The sentiments are from the new Botanical Sentiments stamp set and are stamped in Oreo ink.

This project is featured today over on the Taylored Expressions blog along with a video, so make sure to stop by there and check that out!



This next card is created with the In Bloom Cling & Clear Combo set. I stamped the background with Sugar cube ink on Toffee cardstock and then added the color fills using the clear stamps in the set. I kept everything lined up in my Misti so that after I was finished adding the color fills, I stamped the background again over the top to get a bright, crisp white impression.


The sentiment is created with the On the Block - Mom stamp and coordinating On the Block - Mom Shadow die. I cut it out from my stamped background and created a shaker by backing the opening with window acetate and then layering it over a piece of Guava cardstock that I stamped the 'mom' word onto with Fruit Punch ink with foam sticky strips. I created a box around the 'mom' word so that the shaker filler will stay in that area. I filled the shaker with Bits & Pieces - Full of Heart confetti.


The sentiment strips above and below the 'mom' word are from the new Mini Strips - You're the Best stamp. I stamped the sentiments in Sugar Cube ink onto Guava cardstock and cut them out with the Mini Strips die.
