taylored expressions - floral & mother's day!


Hey, everyone! There's a new release at Taylored Expressions that's full of flowers and it's perfect to create for Mother's Day and more! I have several projects to share with you today, including a pair of cards created with my new stamp set and coordinating dies: Planting Happiness.

The new products for the Floral & Mother's Day release are available to purchase RIGHT NOW in the Taylored Expressions webstore!


I brought out the Toffee cardstock to create the background for this thinking of you card created with the Flower Patch Background stamp and coordinating Flower Patch Layering Stencil set. To create the background, I set the stamp up in my MISTI, stamped the design onto the Toffee cardstock, kept the background in place in my MISTI while adding the stenciled colors, and then stamped the background again over the top with Sugar Cube ink.


The background is cut out with the largest frame from the Frame in Frame 2 Cutting Plate die and the sentiment is put together with the 'thinking of you' sentiment from the On Occasion stamp set and the 'you make my heart happy' sentiment strip from the Simple Strips Background stamp. I finished the card off with a few Bits & Pieces - White Rhinestones.



This pair of Mother's Day cards are created with my new Planting Happiness stamp set. The set includes lots of blossoms and leaves that you can assemble into floral stems and/or arrangements. I embossed the images onto watercolor cardstock in white and added color with Karin BrushmarkerPRO markers and a watercolor brush. Once the images were colored, I cut them out with the coordinating dies.


The florals are added into a frame that I cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets and Inside Scallop Rectangle Stacklets die collection. The Toffee card base is stamped with the Linen Background stamp and I added the 'Happy Mother's Day' sentiment stamped with Chocolate Truffle ink. A few Bits & Pieces - Clear Drip Drops are the finishing touch.

**This project will be featured on Thursday (3/24/22) over on the Taylored Expressions blog along with a video showing how I created it. Make sure to stop by to check it out!



This last set of cards is created with the new Triple Slim In the Garden Layering Stencil set. This stencil set creates three Mini Slim sized backgrounds with one set of stencils! I stenciled the floral designs onto Toffee cardstock, laying down a layer of Sugar Cube ink first before adding the dye ink over the top to brighten up the colors. Normally, colors become more muted when stamped or stenciled directly onto Toffee or darker colors of cardstock.


The 'Happy Mother's Day' sentiment is embossed with rose gold embossing powder using the new Get the Word Out - Mother's Day stamp and coordinating die and I sprinkled a few Bits & Pieces - Clear Drip Drops throughout each card design.
