taylored expressions - wheatfield dreams kit!


Hey, everyone! There's a new craft kit at Taylored Expressions and I am excited to share it with you! This kit was designed by Lori Craig, who I am lucky to call a dear friend.  You might remember the other kits that she designed for Taylored Expressions: Field Notes and Field Notes 2. This kit is inspired by Lori's home state of Kansas and features images of wheat stalks and sunflowers. I loved creating with the kit and have several projects to share with you today!

Here's more information about what's included in the Wheatfield Dreams Kit:

I so enjoyed creating with this kit! This first set of cards features both of the images from the Wheatfield Dreams stamp set. The kit includes copper embossing powder and I love the rich rusty brown color. I embossed sunflowers and wheat on the smooth side of watercolor cardstock and added color using liquid watercolors. On the sunflower I used Pineapple and Honey for the sunflower petals, Honey and Chocolate Truffle for the flower centers, and Sweet Basil for the stem. For the wheat, I used Pineapple over the whole image, adding Honey and Chocolate Truffle for shading on the wheat kernels.


The background of the card is stamped with the Burlap Background stamp with Toffee ink on Toffee cardstock - I love that rustic texture! I added lots of splatters to the images and background using Chocolate Truffle liquid watercolor and Copic opaque white ink. The wheat and sunflowers are added to a Stitched Rectangle Stacklets die cut along with the 'thank you' sentiment stamped with Chocolate Truffle ink. 

**This project is featured today over on the Taylored Expressions blog along with a video showing how I created it. Make sure to check it out!



I love the different colors that sunflowers can come in and decided to paint a few with burgundy petals for this project. The sunflowers are embossed with copper embossing powder and colored with liquid watercolor paints: Mulled Wine for the petals, Chocolate Truffle for the flower centers, and Sweet Basil for the stems.


This project originally started off as a set of tags. For the background on the tag, I foiled Foil It - Wheatfield panels with gold foil and added color over the top with Pineapple and Honey inks with my blender brushes. The backgrounds are cut out using a Pierced Tag Stacklets 2 die and layered onto a Mulled Wine Tag Stacklets 2 die cut with a Toffee Tag Reinforcements die cut at the top of the tag. I added the sunflowers onto the tags and a sentiment stamped onto a Double-Ended Flag Stacklets die cut. Burlap twine is added at the top of the tags for attaching to gifts.


I took one of the tags and added it to a card front that is stamped with the Burlap Background stamp using Honey ink on Honey cardstock. A frame cut out from Mulled Wine cardstock using the A2 Thin Frame Cutting Plate die frames the tag and finishes the card. If you have a bunch of tags, this is a great way to use them on a card!
