Taylored Expressions May Release Day…




Hi everyone!  It’s Release Day at Taylored Expressions today!  My first card is a new stamp and die combo called Under the Toadstool. Super cute and whimsical with the little glittery fairy and her magical kingdom.




I inked up an acrylic block with Distress ink pads, spritzed with water and smooshed a piece of watercolor paper onto it for the background.  The images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch markers.  Then die cut with the coordinating dies.  The dies are very easy to use because you can see where to position them!  YAY! A coat of Wink of Stella Clear Brush Marker finished her off.


To complement the scene I used the TE Wispy grass and Arbor Accessories dies. I colored the stems and flowers with Copic Sketch markers, shaped with a mat and stylus then glued them to the corners.


This month’s release has us looking ahead to Father’s Day!




I made an A2 size Center Panel Step Card.  Don’t you love that cute Little Bits lawn mower die?!  The window, well, it’s really a new die called Gridlocked!  Love the new Brick Embossing Folder too!


Version 2


I die cut the Shades of Thanks tree in white card-stock and colored with Copic Sketch markers.

The Wispy Grass die I cut from green card-stock and embossed it with the Cable Knit Embossing Folder.

The cute sentiments on the front and inside are from the new Punny Man stamp set… so fun!

and here’s the inside…

See ‘ya!

  10. Your little sparkly fairy is absolutely adorable, Pam, and I love your mower scene…tooo cute!!!! Welcome to TE!!!!

  11. Oh Pam, these cards are so adorable. I just bought the cute lawn mower die and the pretty cable knit embossing folder. Thank you for your inspiration!

  12. Beautiful cards, Pam. I love your cute little fairy. Nice background stamping. I have never thought to use Distress inks on an acrylic block and then smoosh the ink/water mix onto watercolor paper. I will have to give that technique a try. Love the window for the mower to make it the focus. Clever use of the gridlock die 😉 Go, Pam!

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
