taylored expressions - black friday exclusives!


Hey, everyone and Happy Thanksgiving to all of you celebrating in the United States! It's time for the Black Friday Sale at Taylored Expressions! There is a 20% discount sitewide now through 11:59PM CT Sunday, October 26th, exclusive freebies, and doorbuster bundles! I have projects to share with you today using a few of the new products that you will see along the way.


The Black Friday Sale is going on right now in the Taylored Expressions webstore!


The set of four cards that you see here and at the top of the post are created with the new Create in Quads - Poster Prints Layering Stencil set that is a part of the Blending Bundle doorbuster. This quad features four floral designs that are wonderful to use for so many different occasions. I stenciled the first three stencil layers of the florals onto Toffee cardstock with Guava (shaded with Cherry Pop), Avocado (shaded with Olive), Mango (shaded with Candy Corn) inks. For the last layer I used Happy Medium - Fresh Snow that I applied with a Nuvo media spatula and then sprinkled with pearl glitter after removing the stencil. Each of the images is framed with the largest Diagonal Stitch Rectangles Stacklets, which impresses the frame design into the cardstock.


The sentiments are from theFoil It - Hello Lovely panels that I foiled with Gold Deco Foil and cut out with the coordinating dies. A few tiny hearts sprinkled around the sentiments and Fruit Punch card bases complete the look!



This pair of mini slim cards feature background created with the new 6x6 Twinkling Lights Background stamp embossed with the Silver Sparkle (on the left) and Gold Sparkle (on the right) embossing powders. The embossing powders and background stamp are exclusive freebies that you can earn free with a qualifying purchase during the Black Friday sale. The sparkle is hard to capture in photos, but it adds the perfect twinkle to your projects! Right away, I decided cards for the holidays would be perfect to showcase the background stamp design with the embossed sparkle and shine.


The penguins from the Dancing Through the Snow set are stamped with Oreo ink on X-Press It Blending cardstock and colored with OLO markers. I added a bit of extra glitter with a glue pen to their hats and scarves for extra sparkle. The sentiments are from the Foil It - Merriest Christmas panels, are foiled with the Silver Shimmer and Gold Shimmer Fun Foil, and cut out with the coordinating dies. For a finishing touch, I sprinkled silver and gold drip drops (matching the color on the card) throughout each design.
