taylored expressions - autumn release


Hey, everyone! It's the Autumn release today at Taylored Expressions! I created projects with several of the new products and am excited to share them with you today. I have a set of cards to share made with the new ginkgo themed products and a set of whimsical tags made with the new Woodland Squad Die & Clear Combo set. 

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


For the set of cards, I foiled the panels from the Foil It - Ginkgo pack with Amber Watercolor Deco Foil. I love the blend of copper, silver, and gold in the foil and it's perfect for a fall look! Once the panels were foiled, I added Honey ink with my blender brushes, shading the leaves with Sweet Potato Pie ink and adding Mocha ink around the outside panel edges. Of course, I added lots of splatters with Copic opaque white ink and Chocolate Truffle liquid watercolor!

The single ginkgo leaves are from the Peace & Hope Stamp & Die Combo set. I embossed them in gold on Honey cardstock, added shading with Sweet Potato Pie ink, and cut the out with the coordinating dies.


The cards are framed with thin frames cut out with the A2 Thin Frame Cutting Plate die from Honey cardstock. For the sentiments, I foiled a Foil It - Grateful Greetings panel with Copper Deco Foil and cut them out with the coordinating Grateful Greetings dies. Bits & Pieces - Gold Drop Drops are the finishing touch on the cards.

While I used an autumn color combination, you could try out other colors to create a different look for occasions throughout the year!



I had a lot of fun creating this set of tags with the Woodland Squad Die & Clear Combo set! I cut out the critters using the dies from Toffee, Honey, Mocha, and Sweet Potato Pie cardstock. Before I assembled them, I added a touch of shading to the die cut pieces with Mocha ink using a blender brush. Once the critters were put together, I stamped the faces using the clear stamps (Nocturne Versafine Clair ink for the eyes/moose nose and Pink Champagne ink for the cheeks).


The tag bases are cut out with the Pierced Tag Stacklets 2 die collection from Olive and Toffee cardstock. I stamped the Olive tags with the background stamp from the Four Seasons Stamp & Stencil Combo set in Olive ink. To add the sentiments, I cut out tags with the Itty Bitty Tags 1 die collection and added the 'just for you' sentiment from the Itty Bitty Sentiments stamp set with Oreo ink. The tiny tags are attached with jump rings to the burlap twine at the top of the tags!



Right now through Sunday, August 28th (or while supplies last - this bundle is in limited supply!), when you purchase the Ginkgo Bundle (Peace & Hope Stamp & Die Combo set, Ginkgo Background stamp, and Foil It - Ginkgo panels), you will get gold embossing powder FREE! This is a great bundle of products perfect for your fall projects, sympathy cards, and more!
