taylored expressions - new colors!


Hey, everyone! There's a new release today at Taylored Expressions featuring SEVEN new colors! I have two projects to share that feature two different color combos using the new colors with other colors in the TE collection. I have to admit, the new colors are BRIGHT (get out your sunglasses!) and not normally what I would gravitate towards when creating. But, I definitely enjoyed playing with them and figuring out color combinations. I even surprised myself with the colors that I decided were favorites. It's a good thing to try things out of the box from what I normally do!

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


This first card is created with cardstock using the new Easy Strips - 1/2" Stitched die and Easy Strips - Maps Vol. 2 pack. The Easy Strips - Maps are the perfect guide to use with the Easy Strips dies to create all sorts of background designs. I chose a color combination that makes me think of Lisa Frank stickers that were popular when I was growing up! I used: Bubblegum, Guava, Mango, Dill Pickle, and Cotton Candy cardstock.


I couldn't get Lisa Frank out of my head once I had the background put together and did an overlay of die cut stars over the top! The stars are cut out with the Star Stacklets die collection from Sugar Cube cardstock. For a bit of sparkle, I sprinkled Bits & Pieces - Silver Glitter Drops throughout the design. The 'hip hip hooray' sentiment is from the Treat Yo'self stamp set. I stamped that with Nocturne Versafine Clair ink and cut it out with the coordinating die.



I am super excited about how the color combination on this card turned out using the inks in the new colors with one of the designs from the Create-in-Quads Ever in Bloom Layering Stencil set! Blending the bright colors on Toffee cardstock toned them down and created a beautiful look! I used Cotton Candy (blended with Snow Cone), Mango (blended with Candy Corn), and Kiwi (blended with Dill Pickle). I also used Sugar Cube ink for a few details and Mocha ink for the stems. My favorite is how Mango looks on the Toffee and I cannot wait to use this look on card for fall!


I cut the stenciled design out with a Stitched Mini Slim Stacklets die and added a frame cut out of Toffee cardstock with the Mini Slim Thin Frame Cutting Plate die. The mini slim card base is Honey cardstock and the 'thinking of you' sentiment is from the Hello Lovely stamp set and is stamped with Chocolate Truffle ink. I sprinkled a few Bits & Pieces - Gold Glitter Drops throughout the design for a touch of sparkle!
