Hey, everyone! Today is a new release at Taylored Expressions and it is all things fall! Today I have a few projects to share that are created with some of the new products. One project uses the new Swirls Pierce & Cut Plate die and Autumn Blessings products and the other one is created with the new What a Hoot products that I designed and the new Fineline Leaf Background stamp. I hope you enjoy them!
The new products for the fall release are available to purchase RIGHT NOW in the Taylored Expressions webstore!
This first card makes me think colorful fall leaves blowing around on windy autumn days. I stamped leaves from the Autumn Blessings stamp set onto different fall cardstock colors using the same colors of ink (Honey, Sweet Potato Pie, Avocado, and Olive) and cut them out with the coordinating dies. The background is cut out with the Swirls Pierce & Cut Plate die from Toffee cardstock and I tucked the leaves into the swirl cut outs across the background. The leaves are attached to the background with foam squares to pop them up a bit and create extra dimension!
I stamped the 'autumn blessings' sentiment onto Sugar Cube cardstock that is cut out with a Stitched Banner Stacklets die and added the panel to a Honey card base that is stamped with the Linen Background stamp with Honey ink. Bits & Pieces - Clear Drip Drops scattered through the card design is the finishing touch!
When you gather a group of owls together it's called a parliament! You can gather owls together on your next crafty project with the new What a Hoot products that I designed. Use the What a Hoot Cling & Clear Combo set to stamp the owl images to fill up your A2 card front and then add color, patterns on the tummies, and more with the clear stamps in the set. You can cut the owls out using the coordinating die to use them individually or leave them together on the background and add leaves in between them with the coordinating stencil.
The owls for my projects are stamped with Chocolate Truffle ink and added color to the bodies and wings with Honey, Toffee, Avocado, and Sweet Potato Pie inks. The tummy patterns are stamped onto the owls with Chocolate Truffle ink - aren't they cute? I did two panels and used one for the card background and cut out the owls on the second panel with the die. For the card background, I added the leaves with the stencil using Avocado ink.
I stamped a piece of Toffee cardstock using the new Fineline Leaf Background stamp using Toffee ink and cut out several banners from it using a Stitched Banner Stacklets die. On each of the banners, I stamped a sentiment in Chocolate Truffle ink, added a branch cut out with the Notecard Accessories die collection, and added an owl on the branch with foam tape to pop it up a bit. I added one of the banners to the card front and used the other two banners for tags.
I stamped a piece of Toffee cardstock using the new Fineline Leaf Background stamp using Toffee ink and cut out several banners from it using a Stitched Banner Stacklets die. On each of the banners, I stamped a sentiment in Chocolate Truffle ink, added a branch cut out with the Notecard Accessories die collection, and added an owl on the branch with foam tape to pop it up a bit. I added one of the banners to the card front and used the other two banners for tags. Burlap twine is added to the tags and there are Bits & Pieces - Clear Drip Drops added to the tags and card with liquid adhesive.
**This project will be featured over on the Taylored Expressions blog this Thursday along with a video showing how I created the card & tags. Make sure to check it out!
