taylored expressions - create-in-quads birthday!


Hey, everyone! There's a new release at Taylored Expressions to celebrate their half birthday! There's a new birthday themed Create-in-Quads set along with coordinating dies, sentiments, and fun confetti embellishment options. I have a set of cards created with the new products to share with you today!

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


The Create-in-Quads Layering Stencil set enables you to stencil four A2 card backgrounds at one time. The new birthday set includes a large stack of presents and party hat as part of the design and there are coordinating dies to cut those images out, if you would like.

I stenciled the backgrounds using teal, blue, and purple inks: Cookie Monster shaded with Blue Raspberry, Plum Punch shaded with Jelly Donut, and Blueberry shaded with Blue Corn. On the last stencil layer I also added Happy Medium - Iridescent Glitter to add sparkle. I splattered the designs with Copic opaque white ink as well.


I cut out the confetti and streamer backgrounds using a Stitched Rectangle Stacklets die and added them to Toffee card bases. The sentiments on all of the cards are put together with the Get the Word Out - Happy stamp + coordinating die and On Repeat - Birthday + On Repeat die. I embossed them in clear on both Cookie Monster and Plum Punch cardstock and added them to the card panels with foam adhesives to add dimension.


For the large party hat and presents images, I cut them out with the coordinating dies: Create-in-Quads Birthday Party Hat and Create-in-Quads Birthday Presents. I added the die cut images to Toffee card bases that are stamped with the Free Fall Background stamp in Sugar Cube ink. The frames are cut out from Blue Raspberry cardstock using the A2 Thin Frame Cutting Plate die.


The final touch on all of the cards is a sprinkling of Bits & Pieces - Confetti Dots. I picked out purple, pink, and blue dots to coordinate with the colors on my cards and adhered them with Multi Medium Matte.

I love how a card set created with the Create-in-Quads set like this come together so quickly and easily! You can keep things clean and simple or add extras to step up the designs. My cards are ready to go for birthday celebrations!
