taylored expressions - celebrate grads!


Hey, everyone! There's a new release at Taylored Expressions to celebrate grads and other important life achievements. I have lots of projects to share with you today that I created with the new products from the release!

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


First up is this set of graduation cards created with the new Create-in-Quads Hooray Layering Stencil set. I always need a pile of grad cards ready to go this time of year. Is anyone else always surprised at the number of announcements that arrive in the mail?? They have already started to arrive at our house!

I stenciled the design on a piece of Toffee cardstock (8" x 10.5") with Oreo, Sugar Cube, and Happy Medium - Gold Glitter. Once everything was dry I cut the stenciled cardstock into fourths to create the background for my cards.


I added the '2022' to each card from the Cut for You 2022 - Black pack along with sentiments from the High Five stamp set. The sentiments are embossed in gold on Oreo cardstock and cut out with the coordinating die.


The thin white frames are cut out with the A2 Thin Frame Cutting Plate die and I finished the cards off with the grad caps set onto the '2022'. I put the caps together using the Little Bits - Grad Cap die using Oreo and gold glitter cardstock.



Next is a set of grad cards that I created with the Foil It - Grad panels. I love these panels because they are perfect for creating quick and easy cards, they are customized for 2022, plus there are 6 different designs in the pack! I foiled two of the panels with Gold Deco Foil using my Minc machine and added a thin frame around the edge of the panel that is cut out with the A2 Thin Frame Cutting Plate die.


I added grad caps that I created with the Little Bits - Grad Cap dies above the foiled sentiments and scattered gold glitter cardstock stars around the caps that I cut out with the star dies from the Banner Year - 4th of July Stamp & Die Combo set.



Finally is a grad card that features the sentiment from the All You Need stamp. I love this heartfelt sentiment and it is perfect for graduation and other big life moments. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of vellum with Oreo ink and let it completely dry. I layered the vellum over a piece of Toffee cardstock that is stenciled with the new Bokeh Stars Layering Stencil set with Toffee, Earl Gray, and Sugar Cube inks.


The vellum piece is framed with the largest from from the Stitched Frame Stacklets 1 die collection and I added a grad cap created with the Little Bits - Grad Cap dies under the sentiment.
