taylored expressions - new blender brushes and more!


Hey, everyone! There's a new release at Taylored Expressions that includes NEW Blender Brushes, stencils, and more. When the Blender Brushes first debuted at TE, I bugged Taylor about a white brush to use with Sugar Cube ink (I know I wasn't alone!) and that is one of the new brushes releasing today - I am so excited! I have a few projects to share today that I created with the new brushes and stencils.

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


This first card is created with the new Mandala stencil. It's such a pretty design and you can use it to fill up your card front or have pieces of it peek in from the sides of your project like I did here. I wanted the color to pop on the Toffee cardstock and so I did my first layer of the colored mandala with Sugar Cube ink using the new white Blender Brush. I let it dry just a bit and then layered Plum Punch and Blue Corn inks over the top with the new Bitty Blender Brushes. I loved having more control over where my ink color went with these new little brushes!


I added a few more peeks of the mandala design around the colored image using just Sugar Cube ink. I cut out the background using a Mini Slim Stitched Stacklets die and added it to a Blue Corn Mini Slim sized (3.5" x 6") card base.

The sentiment on the card is created with the Framed Script - Hello die and Mini Strips - Fun & Funny stamp. I cut out the 'hello' from Sugar Cube cardstock and trimmed it out of the frame for my card. The sentiment strips are stamped with Sugar Cube ink on Blue Corn cardstock and cut out with the Mini Strips - Asymmetrical die. I added a few Bits & Pieces - Drip Drops to finish off the card design.



This next card is created with the new Dahlia stencil. I played around with stenciling on a dark cardstock background and I love the results! I stenciled the dahlia design with Sugar Cube ink using the new white Blender brush onto Blue Corn cardstock, let that dry, and then added Plum Punch ink over the top. I left the middle of the flower white and blended with the Plum Punch ink, staying lighter towards the middle and getting darker as I moved out to the edges of the background. I even added a touch of Blue Corn ink blended around the outside to darken the outside edges.

I cut this background out with a Mini Slim Stitched Stacklets die and added it to a Toffee Mini Slim sized card base.


I did the sentiment on this card the same as the card above, just using a few different sentiments from the Mini Strips - Fun & Funny stamp. A few Bits & Pieces - Drip Drops finished off this card.
