taylored expressions - foil it release!


Hey, everyone! There are new foiling products debuting today at Taylored Expressions! I have several projects to share with you today that include lots of shimmer and shine.

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


This set of cards is created by pairing the new Foil it - Hooray Birthday panels with the previously released Create-in-Quads Hooray Layering Stencil set. I foiled the panels with Gold Deco Foil and then added color to them with the stencil set and Guava, Macaron, and Granny Smith inks. There's an easy trick to omitting the grad caps from the one stencil quadrant so they work with the panel that has birthday cakes on it to replace the caps (see how I did it in the video below).

The panels are cut out with the largest Stitched Rectangle Stacklets die and layered onto the largest Petite Scallop Rectangle Stacklets die cut out from coordinating cardstock colors. I finished off the cards with Bits & Pieces - Clay Stars that I scattered throughout each design.

Watch the video below to see how I created this birthday card set from start to finish:



This next set of cards feature the Foil it - Paradise panels. I foiled both of the panels with Emerald Watercolor Deco Foil. For the card on the left, I added color to the foiled panel with Blue Corn ink with a Blender Brush and then used it for the background of a shaker card that is filled with Bits & Pieces - Gold Drip Drops and Snow Flurries sequins.

For the card on the right, I added color to the panel with Poblano Pepper ink using a Blender Brush. The panel is cut out with a Stitched Mini Slim Stacklets die, layered onto another Stitched Mini Slim Stacklets die cut from Poblano Pepper cardstock, and added to a Toffee Mini Slim card base.


Both cards feature sentiments from the Foil It - On Occasion panels. I foiled the sentiments with Gold Deco Foil, cut them out with the coordinating On Occasion die collection, and added them to the cards. The Mini Slim card is finished off with a few Bits & Pieces - Gold Drip Drops.



This last card features the Foil It - Gathered Greenery panels. I foiled two of the panels for this card: one with Copper Deco Foil and one with Amber Watercolor Deco Foil - I really love the copper, gold, and silver tones in the Amber Watercolor foil! I left the copper one as is for the card background, but added Toffee ink to color the Amber Watercolor one with a Blender Brush. I cut the panel down and layered it over the background panel in the center of the card.


The sentiment from the Foil It - On Occasion panels is foiled with Silver Deco Foil and added over a Branch Out die cut and strips that I stamped and distressed to look like wooden planks. I stamped the Wood Plank Background with Toffee ink onto Toffee cardstock that I had painted with white acrylic paint. I splattered the stamped image, cut out the 'planks' with the Easy Strips - 1/2" die, and pieced them together onto the card. A few Bits & Pieces - Silver Drip Drops are the finishing touch on the card.
