Taylored Expressions February Release Day…

Pam Sparks Door To Door Spring Decor Thurs

Hi everyone!  It’s release day at Taylored today!  I’m featuring the NEW Door to Door Spring Decor die set that goes along with the previously released Door to Door die sets.

I love all the elements that come in these sets! Unlimited creativity!

Pam Sparks Door To Door Spring Decor Close

I used the Bead Board Embossing Folder for the house siding…the New Little Bits Mailbox, NEW Welcome Spring banner die,  Wispy Grass Border die, Door To Door die set and the wreath from the Door to Door Decor die set.

I scored the steps with my scor pal and inked the edges of pretty much everything with  Hickory Smoke and Peeled Paint Distress Inks and the ink blending tool. I used a white gel pen to decorate the eggs on the wreath.

My past Door to Door cards are HERE and HERE.


Pam Sparks In the Garden

Look at this darling NEW In the Garden die! I wanted to make it a vintage sepia ‘look’ so I used Tea Dye Distress Ink and did watercolor ink smooshing on canvas looking card-stock for the background. Edges of everything are inked with Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress Inks and the ink blending tool.

The sentiment is from the Shade Tree Scripture stamp set.


Pam Sparks Light of the World

A beautiful New stamp set, Light of the World, with lovely stain glass windows and sentiments. I stamped in dark brown ink, then blended on Distress inks…Shaded Lilac, Cracked Pistachio for coloring.  I can’t remember what the orangish color is. ugh. sorry about that!  I used white gel pen over the flower petals after I finished inking.

I covered the stain glass piece with double sided adhesive and glittered it with Vintage Glass Glitter…so pretty!

I gold embossed the sentiment on vellum die cut with the Stitched Banner Stacklets and adhered with little dots of Tombow mono multi behind the words.  The little bird’s tail from the NEW Little Bits Birds die set, is glued to the vellum also then a mounting square behind the top part of the bird.


Pam Sparks Simply Stamped Tulips

The ‘true’ way to welcome Spring in our area anyway is with Tulips!   Gorgeous new stamp and die sets, Simply Stamped Tulips.

I stamped, die cut and placed them on the NEW Leafy Vine Cutting plate die cut in white.  So romantic! lol

That’s it from me today but there’s tons more inspiration from the TE creative team!  Click over to the TE Blog HERE, scroll down to the link up of designers and enjoy all their beautiful creations!

  1. Oh dear – I find I must have one more thing — the first card is cute — the third card is certainly appropriate and the third care is so colorful. But I must say Pam —— I adore the second one — I love it — I just have to have that die.
