taylored expressions - happy easter!


Hey, everyone! It's time for the Easter release at Taylored Expressions! I have several projects to share today that were created with the new Easter release goodies, including the new Foil It - Good Egg and Critter Clips - Easter products that I designed. There is also an exclusive class I am a part of with Taylor that you can get access to free by purchasing the new Spring Array collection - check out the details about the class at the end of this post.

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


The Easter egg designs on this set of shakers cards might look familiar to you! The Good Egg Stamp & Stencil Combo set was released last spring and now this spring we are adding Foil It - Good Egg panels to the product collection. The toner printed panels can be colored using the stencil in the combo set and you can top the panels with foil and run them through a Minc machine to add shimmer and shine (a heat laminator will also work to foil.)

For the card on the left, I left the panel intact and used it as the shaker card background. To create the shaker, I added the largest Stitched Frame 1 Stacklets cut out from Cookie Monster cardstock and backed with acetate over the background with foam sticky strips. The shaker filling is a mixture of Bits & Pieces - Clear Drip Drops and Bits & Pieces - Rainbow Rhinestones.


For the card on the right, I cut out the foiled eggs with the Good Egg dies to use as a part of the shaker filling. The background of that card is created with the stencil and stamp in the Good Egg set. I stenciled the eggs with Toffee ink on Toffee cardstock and stamped the patterns with Sugar Cube ink over the top, using a MISTI Clear Alignment panel to line everything up perfectly.

The sentiment on both cards is from the Joyful Joyful stamp set and is embossed in clear on Cookie Monster cardstock. I added a few of the foiled die cut eggs next to the sentiments for a finishing touch.



It probably won't surprise you at all that I created Easter tags with the new Critter Clips - Easter die collection! I cut out the critters and egg from felt (Cherry Blosson, Butter, Carrot, Marshmallow, Heather Gray, Licorice, Latte, and Khaki) and added Bits & Pieces - Rainbow Rhinestones for extra color and sparkle.


The critters are added to tags that are cut out with the Tag Stacklets 3 die collection from Toffee cardstock and stenciled with the Mini Slim Trellis stencil using Sugar Cube ink.


I added sentiments to the tags from the All Tucked In - Easter stamp set to Sugar Cube cardstock tags cut out with the Tag Team dies. The tags are sprinkled with a few Bits & Pieces - Rainbow Rhinestones and then attached to the larger tags with eyelets. Burlap twine is threaded through the tags so they can be tied onto Easter baskets, gifts, or treats.



This pair of cards was created with the Spring Array Stamp, Stencil, & Clear Combo set and the coordinating Spring Array die. To create the flower bouquet, you use the stamp for the greenery, the stencils to add the flowers, and the clear stamps to add the details.


I finished off the card using sentiments from the new Joyful Joyful stamp set, Bits & Pieces - Clear Drip Drops, and a few other basic. The Spring Array products were designed for spring, but will work for occasions through out the year too!
