Taylored Expressions

It’s time to make calendars!

Hello and welcome!
Today is start of Taylored Expressions November release sneak peek. Yes, lots of new goodies to be released on Thursday. Today I am showcasing new 5×7 2017 calendar and 3×4 watercolour panels from Taylored Expressions. 

These 3 x 4 calendar watercolour panels make it so easy to colour and add to the calendar pages above. I have showcased the months of January, February and March!

I have used Zig clean brush markers to watercolour the panels. For some highlights on the hearts,  clouds and background of the snowflakes panel I used Finetec Mica Metallic watercolor paint. Love the shimmer from the mica on the panels. To complement the shimmer and colours, I added foil metallic border using the new Build a Scene 5×7 Calendar die and papers from DCVW foiled paper pad. I have used a 5 x 7 acrylic frame to showcase the calendar. Hence I have kept the calendar page completely flat. This frame is available for purchase from Taylored Expressions store.  You can similarly colour the rest of the panels to make your calendar. A quick and perfect gift to give for the new year to your colleague or friend or family.

Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit Taylored Expressions Blog to answer Taylor’s Question of the Day for a chance to win a prize from the latest release!

While you are there, check out gorgeous inspirations from the rest of the designers using the sneak peek products. Hope you like my projects today. All the supplies I used to make the calendars are listed below.

I fell in love with the Sprinkled with Joy stamp set and coordinating dies after I saw Kelly’s video. LOVE how the oven opens and great to make interactive cards. I am usually not the one to make elaborate interactive cards as it take a lot of time engineering them. I am more of a quick and easy cardmaker. But this stamp set made me push outside my comfort zone and make an elaborate interactive card. Here is the card.

This card took me about four hours to make because I had a certain idea in my mind and wanted to put that on paper. I wanted the oven door to open from the card front and see the oven tray with cookies on the inside of the card. So essentially a window card.  When I started making the card, I had a tradesman come in to fix the gyprock in my dining room after a waterleak. So I had to bring all the supplies down to the dining table so I can craft and keep an eye on the trades at work. I realised that I cannot multitask! I made so many mistakes, unnecessarily complicated the process and had to redo so many parts of the card. But I got there finally. 
You can see in the photo below the oven on the front of the card and the tray with cookies and other accessories inside the card.

Sweet Christmas Wishes angled shot//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

I stamped and coloured the oven and the accessories I needed using copic makers. Then die cut using the coordinating dies. I also die cut the card front and a white stitched panel using the oven die. I adhered an acetate sheet behind the panel after sponging ink using the stencil on top of the panel and ink on the bottom of the panel. Then inlaid coloured oven die on the panel. I also die cut a similar die without stamping the oven image and adhered on the other side of the panel. I adhered this panel on the card front with plaid pattern paper making sure I lined up the die cut openings. I added the towel and the open me tag to the oven on the front. Then I added a black glitter scalloped frame and stamped sentiment on a sponged strip of card. And finally embellished using sparkly clear sequins. 

Here is the inside of the card.

Sprinkled with joy 1//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

I aligned the tray such that you can see the tray inside the oven when the oven door is opened front the card front but inside the card as you see in the photo above, the tray with cookies and all the accessories next to it. I added a strip of the same plaid pattern paper from the card front to coordinate. Sentiment is from same stamp set is stamped on a strip of cardstock sponged with ink.

Here is the photo of the card from the front with the oven door open.

And the oven door closed.

I wish I was alone at home and had more pleasant experience making it. But hey I stuck to the process, never gave up despite the mistakes and love the result. How cute is the oven and the accessories? Adore the towel on it. I felt like I was playing with the miniature cooking set I used to have as a child. As always I have listed all the products I used to make this card below.

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Christmas Shaker Tags!

Oh Hello everyone,
Hope you are having a great day! How is the transition of seasons happening at your place? Perth is getting warmer finally. I am going into spring with cooler mornings and evenings. So happy to see some sunshine. I know for many of you living in the northern hemisphere are in Autumn. I live down under. We have had a unusual long cold winter. It is so exciting to have a gorgeous spring day.

Anyway, I have been busy yesterday and made a set of shaker Christmas tags using Taylored Expressions stamp set and dies.

Tag1
//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

I have used Tag Stacklet 3 and Stitched Circle Stacklet dies to create my shaker frame and backing for the shaker tags. I used the second largest Tag Stacklet 3 and fourth stitched circle die from Stitched Circle Stacklet placed in the middle to die cut four white tag frames. I adhered circle acetate sheet behind the frames.
For the background, I die cut four stitched white circle from third stitched circle die. I sponged TE dye inks on the background. On two of the circles, I sponged Lemon Meringue, Cookie Monster. The other two are sponged with Plum Punch and Cookie Monster. I stamped two of them with Birch Tree background stamp using Sugar Cube ink and the other two with Earl Grey dye ink.
The focal point images are from Santa’s Helper stamp set which are stamped using Oreo hybrid ink, copic coloured and die cut using the coordinating dies. I adhered them on the base circle with foam adhesives. How cute are they with their santa hats?
I put the shaker tag together with couple of them with Snow Flurries sequins and the other two with Build a Scene sequins. I gold heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set on Cherry Pop card stock. I hand cut them out and adhered on the shaker tags. Finally I added couple of bells for each tag and tie the gold twine into a bow. Here the individual tag photos.

I love the unicorns from the Magical Unicorns stamp set. So cute that I used all the three unicorns from the stamp set to make a set of three cards for this challenge. All three cards have unicorns, pink colour, fog card base and a splash of gold. I stamped all the unicorns, rainbow and clouds on white cardstock, coloured the rainbow and unicorns in pink, added grey shading to the clouds and hand cut them all out to make my cards. Here is the first one.


As I said before my card base if made out of Fog card stock. I then sponged a watercolour paper with distress inks Spin Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry randomly and spatter with water to add texture.  I then used Simon Says Stamp Stacked Stars die to die cut the sponged watercolour paper. I adhered this die cut to the card front.

Have a dreamy day flat closuep1//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

At the centre of the die cut I adhered the Unicorn using foam adhesive. I tucked in the clouds and flush glued the rainbow. The sentiment I simply stamped on scrap piece of watercolour paper using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and adhered using foam adhesives. I die cut some scrap piece of gold foiled cardstock using the Stacked Star die and used the mini stars from the die cuts to scatter randomly on the card.

Have a dreamy day flat//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

My second card uses another Unicorn from Magical Unicorn from Pink and Main and the Build a Rainbow die from Simon Says Stamp.

magical wishes 3//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js
On the card front I stamped the clouds randomly using Fog dye ink from Simon. One a watercolour paper I sponged distress inks Spun Sugar, Worn Liptstick and Picked Raspberry. I die cut rainbow using Simon Says Stamp Build a Rainbow die. To ground the rainbow(I know it sounds weird), I used a strip of gold foil paper.

Magical wishes flat closeup1//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

I used some Stacked Stars die cut using gold foil paper on the background and adhered the unicorn on the centre of the rainbow using foam adhesives. I stamped the sentiment using MISTI before I adhered the unicorn. Then scattered some of the gold and pink stars around the sentiment and focal image.

Magical wishes flat//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js
//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js
My third card uses the last Unicorn image from the stamp set and Simon Says Stamp Birthday Circle die.

Dreamy Day 2
//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

I stamped the card front with the clouds, rainbow and star images from the stamp set using fog dye ink from Simon. Again I sponged watercolour paper with the same distress inks and die cut the paper using Simon Says Stamp Birthday Circle die. I adhered this die with the centre circle on the top centre of the card front.

Dreamy day closeup//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js
//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

I stamped the sentiment below the die cut and adhered the Unicorn on the centre of the circle die cut using foam adhesive. Finally I scattered glued some gold stars.

Stationery Style cards

Hey everyone,
The October card kit from Simon Says Stamp arrived yesterday. Hooray!
I LOVE this card kit for its cute stamp set and the plaid pattern paper.  Although this kit is sold out, you can buy all the items separately from Simon Says Stamp Store.
I love all the images in the stamp set. The moment I saw this set, I wanted to make stationery style cards. These smaller images are perfect for this style of card. I made a set of two cards. Both cards follow the same process with just a few changes.
I die cut two stitched rectangle panels using white prescored cards that came in the kit. I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die set.  I masked half an inch all around the panel using masking paper. Then used various pigment inks to stamp the images. I started with stamping the sentiment first and then stamped the images around it. I made sure images along the edges are stamped with an overlap on the masking paper. This will give a defined rectangle of stamped area when the masking paper is removed. I adhered these panel on brown card base made using the brown cardstock from the card kit.

Thank you card flat1//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Hope you like my set of cards.  You can find more inspiration at the Card Kit Gallery.

50dollar_voucher_600px
Love resist techniques and I did simple resist technique on the background of my card.
I used Simon Says Stamp background called Abstract Triangles to stamp and white heat emboss on watercolour paper. Then I sponged distress inks Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed at the centre of the paper and Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch on the outer edge of the paper. The colour brought out the embossed triangles beautifully. I then added clean water to add texture to the background.

Totally Irresistible closeup//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

For the focal point, I used Winter Silhouette stamp set from Impression Obsession to black heat emboss on a stitched circle white panel. I mounted this focal image on the background using foam adhesive. I white heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set on black cardstock, trimmed and adhered below the focal panel. I then embellished the card with Pretty Pink Posh Sparkly Clear sequins.

Christmas Watercolor Panels from Taylored Expressions

Hello everyone,
I have couple of Christmas card I made using the beautiful watercolour panels from Taylored Expressions. 

These panels are 3″ x 4″ in size and are printed with twelve Christmas and Holiday doodle images. Absolutely beautidul images and perfect for on the go. These panels can be used as Project Life cards or even ATC cards. I have watercoloured couple of panels and used them to make cards.
I watercoloured this panel using Zig Clean Colour Brush Pens and aqua brush. I then applied versamark on the edge of the panel and gold heat embossed. This frames up the panel beautifully and also give the festive look. I also added glitter to the baubles and glossy accents to a few of them to add dimension.

Merry Christmas closeup 1//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

To make into a card, I added a strip of pattern paper from Playful Patterns Holiday 6×6 pack on the bottom of the card front. The trimmed a Sugar Cube panel by half an inch from the bottom, added a thin strip of gold glitter paper then adhered the panel on the card front using foam adhesives. I then wrapped gold twine on top of the card front into a bow. Finally foam mounted the watercolour panel on the card front. I wanted to bring all the gold together with the addition of single gold sequins to the bow on the watercolour panel.

Merry Christmas flat//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

My second card follows a similar layout with a little difference.

Holly Jolly Christmas 1//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

This is another panel from the 3 x 4 Christmas watercolor panel pack. I again watercolour the panel using Zig Clean Colour Brush Pens. Added versamark on the edges and gold heat embossed. Then for a bit of dimension I added glossy accent to the berries.

Holly Jolly Christmas closeup//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

To make the card, I followed the same process of the previous card. I love the clean and simple version of this card without the gold twine and sequins. There are 12 panels in the pack and just colour them at leisure and mount them on card base to make 12 quick Christmas cards. You can punch a whole on the top of each panel add twine and use if as a tag.

Holly Jolly Christmas flat//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Love the versatility of these panel. Hope you are inspired. All the supplies I used to make these cards are listed below for you.

Winnie & Walter’s Rerun Feature!

Hello and Welcome to Winnie & Walter’s Monthly Rerun Feature!
Rerun is a feature at Winnie & Walter’s blog which runs first week of every month where one product is featured and that product is on sale for the entire month. There are plenty of inspiration using that product on W&W Blog for you by the designers and there is also a challenge.

I made a set of of cards using the smaller pennant images from the stamp set. I will first share the set of cards and explain the process then share photos of each individual card.
The process is simple. I die cut four white panels using the largest rectangle die from Essentials: Katharine Cutaway. I then used pigment inks in rainbow colours to stamp the images on the panel. There are four patterned smaller pennant images in the stamp set. I stamped each images in rainbow colours slightly overlapping on each of the panels. I also stamped the star on each of the image with the corresponding colour. Since I used pigment inks, the colours are vibrant. Love that especially since this is a clean and simple kind of one layer card, the colours make a lot of impact. Then I used the sentiment from Merry & Bright with Evelin T Designs stamps set to stamp partially on the rainbow coloured images. I used Versafine Black Onyx pigment ink. I love this ink for its clean and crisp stamping particularly for detailed images and script sentiments. I finally embellished the panels with Sparkly Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. I adhered the panel on Fog card base. Here are the photos of the individual cards.

Happy Holidays//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Season's greetings card//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Tis the season card//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

These card can be mass produced and easy to mail as well.  Die cut the panels, grab your inks and the stamps, sit in front of TV and stamp away! If you want to take it up one notch, then heat emboss the sentiment. But make sure the pigment inks are dry or stamp using dye inks. Adhere the panel using craft foam for added dimension. Hope you like my cards. Head over Winnie & Walter Blog for more designer inspiration as well the details on the challenge.

Shake it up!! Its Taylored Expressions release day!

Hello everyone,
Hope you have enjoyed all the three days of sneak peeks using the October release products from Taylored Expressions. Well, today is the release day! Hope you have a list and ready to shop. I bet most of the new products are going to fly off the shelf! I have couple of products to share with your today. First up is a gift bag.
I made this gift bag using Taylored Expressions envelope. TE has a set of envelopes at their store. The colours match their cardstocks. The envelope pack has two of each colours and is a pack of 20 envelopes. The envelopes are gorgeous, thick and very good quality. I love them. The store also stocks kraft, cream and white envelopes. Anyway, I sealed the envelope, scored about a quarter inch on three sides and trimmed off the fourth side. I used the stitched oval die to die cut the handle on the bag. I then opened the bag, creased the score lines to make a bag. I adhered the pointy corner on the bottom with strong adhesives. I glued down couple of reinforcement strips of cardstock in Cherry Pop colour inside and on the bottom so the bag can stand.

For the handle, I die cut two stitched oval die from Stitched Oval Stacklets die set to die cut four oval frames out of Oreo cardstock. I adhered them on each side and both sides inside of the bag as well. To decorate the bag, I used the light die from Skinny Mini Borders Holiday die set. I first sponged Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber on a Sugar Cube cardstock. Then used the die to die cut ten light border dies. I adhered them on the bag using Multi Medium Matt and brush Wink of Stella clear shimmer on them.

GAYATRIsnowmanshakercloseupTHURS//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

To add a bigger tag element on the bag and make it more Christmassy, I made a shaker snowman using the new Snowman Shaker die set. This die set is super cute and is designed to make shaker snowman. I used Sugar Cube, Cherry Pop and Spinkles cardstock to make the shaker snowman. Instead of acetate, I used vellum and filled the shaker box with new sequins Flurries.  I brushed the hat and scarf with Wink of Stella clear shimmer, applied Liquid Applique on the hat and scarf as well and added glossy accents to the buttons and eyes. This bag is perfect to add some cookies or smaller gifts for advent calendar. All the supplies used to make this gift bag is listed below.

The second project I am sharing with you today is a card.

GAYATRIskinnyholidayborderTHURS//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

On this card, I used elf Grumplings stamp and die combo along with the gorgeous Woodgrain background stamp and the snowflakes border die from Skinny Mini Borders Holidays die set. I white heat embossed the Elf Grumpling and the gifts, watercoloured using Zig clean brush pens and die cut using the dies.

GAYATRIskinnyholidaybordercloseupTHURS//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

On a Toffee card panel, I used Sugar cube ink and stamped the woodgrain background stamp. I did not want the woodgrain to be stark white. So I sponged some Toffee ink to tone it down. I added a white panel on the bottom of the woodgrain panel, adhered the Elf and the gifts using foam adhesives and glue. Then stamped the sentiment also from the same stamp set. To frame the white focal panel, I die cut two snowflakes border dies from the Skinny Mini Borders Holidays using silver glitter paper and adhered them. I then added some green rhinestones to each of the snowflakes. All the supplies I have used to make this card is listed below.

By the Fireside on Christmas eve

Second post for today. My SSS challenge post is here!
Welcome back to day #3 of Taylored Expressions October sneak peek! Here are my sneak peek day #1 and Day #2. Today I am showcasing two more products from the new release. The first product is a die set called By the Fireside Holidays! This is a building die set which works with the new By the Fireside Santa die set and By the Fireside die set released previously. 

And here is my card using the dies.
 I am lazy and I kept procrastinating about making this card as there were too many die cuts and assembly. But I had a deadline and made this card the last one. To be honest, I throughly enjoyed making this card. I planned out the card, then listed all the die cuts I needed and the colours, die cut them all out, sponged the die cuts with daubers and assembled the card. I don’t know why I kept postponing making this card! It was so much fun. And I think this is my best ever Christmas card. Pretty Proud of it.

GAYATRIbythefiresidehoidayscloseupWED//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Apart from the process of die cutting, sponging to add depth to the die cuts, I also embossed the wall using Brick embossing folder and sponged inks. To embellish the card, I added red rhinestones and glossy accents to the lights and candle flames.

GAYATRIbythefiresideholidayscloseup1WED//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Here is the list of supplies I used on the card.

The second product I ma show casing today is Plaid Embossing Folder.

I LOVE plaid as you would have seen from my cards. Plaid is especially awesome for Christmas cards. Here is my card using the embossing folder.

GAYATRIplaidef1WED//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

I embossed a white panel using the Plaid embossing folder and sponged Salty Water Taffy and Mint Julep TE dye inks. The focal point is Joy die cut from gold foiled cardstock die cut using the new Joy Script die. To frame this die, I used cluster of stamped and die cut images from the new Holiday Florals stamp set. I used TE dye inks and rock and roll technique to stamp these images. For example the large flower is stamped with Cherry Pop dye ink and rolled on the edges on Mulled Wine dye ink.  this adds depth to the images. I then die cut them using the coordinating dies. Finally I used sequins from Wedding collection to embellished the card.
