taylored expressions - awesome autumn!


Hey, everyone! There's a new release today at Taylored Expressions that's all things autumn and fall! I have several products that I designed that are a part of the release that you can purchase in a bundle and get a free class + a cardstock kit to create the class cards!

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

Here are the details for the Awesome Autumn Bundle:


When you purchase the Awesome Autumn Bundle (Awesome Autumn stencil, Awesome Autumn die, Layer It – Sunflower die collection, and Foil It – Greetings of Gratitude panels) while supplies last, you will get a crafting kit (a kit of pre-cut cardstock pieces to complete the cards in the class) and free exclusive video craft-along class with Heather Nichols!

This craft-along class is a great way for you to put your new goodies to use right away making projects at your own pace! Watch the video as often as you like and learn some new card-making tips and tricks!

Once you complete your purchase, you will receive an email (separate from your order confirmation email) with links to the class video.

Hurry! This offer is only valid while supplies last.
Here's a closer look at the cards you will learn to make in the class included with the bundle:


All of the cards in the class incorporate the Foil It - Greetings of Gratitude panels. You can either foil the panels with a toner reactive foil or use them as is - no foiling is required to make the cards! I foiled all of the panels for my cards with Bronze Deco Foil. Bronze is a great go-to foil color for fall that has a very warm, dark, and golden look.


The fall foliage, berries, and acorns are created with my new Awesome Autumn stencil and cut out with the coordinating die. If you remember my Awesome Blossoms stencil (+ coordinating die) that I released with the Thank You in Bloom Cardmaking Kit last year, this stencil and coordinating die work the same way. One 6"x6" stencil enables you to create many multicolored images and then you can cut them out all at once with the coordinating die! (By the way, Awesome Blossoms is available as a part of the TE collection now!) In the class, I talk about different ideas for adding the fall elements to your projects: a more random layout or something a bit more organized. Which one do you like best?


This card includes sunflowers created with my new Layer It - Sunflower die. The sunflower has a fun and whimsical look and I am in love with how it turned out. It's so easy to put the sunflowers together for your projects! There are two sizes of sunflowers in the set and I used both of them on this card. Don't forget that when elements don't totally fit on your project, it's perfectly fine to trim them down like I did here.


You can, of course, cut your elements out of cardstock and assemble the sunflowers as is, but I added a bit of blending and lots of splatters to step things up and add texture and dimension to the card.

A finishing touch on all of the cards is Gold Glitter Drops. They add a touch of sparkle and go well with the bronze foiling on the sentiments and borders!
