Festive Holiday Florals…Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek…


Welcome to Tuesday’s sneak peek for the Taylored Expressions October Release Week! My favorite time of the year to be making cards!

I’m featuring the NEW, lovely and festive Holiday Florals stamp and die sets. I also used the NEW Woodgrain Background stamp and NEW Plaid Embossing Folder. YAY! I love woodgrain! hehe


Using the Mini MISTI, I stamped the images from the Florals set with TE Premium Ink Pads and then added color to some with Zig Watercolor Brush Paint markers and some with Copic Sketch markers. That little extra…

Then I die cut them with the coordinating Floral die set.

The sentiment is from the In and Out Christmas stamp set. I embossed it with Gold embossing powder on a die cut vellum Stitched Banner Stacklets and added a sentiment on the inside from the same set.

I stamped the NEW Woodgrain Background Stamp in the regular size MISTI  with Toffee and Chocolate Truffle ink.  I inked the edges with Toffee ink, then die cut the woodgrain panel with Stitched Rectangle Stacklets dies to form a frame.

The Cherry Pop red card-stock is embossed with the NEW Plaid Embossing Folder. 

I layered everything on to Buttercream Frosting card-stock and then a Sweet Basil card-stock A-2 size top folding card-base.  Gold sequins for the Poinsettia centers.

  1. Love the card and Taylored Expressions “stuff”. I tried to get to her blog and also to her site. I get an error message that her site does not have a secure protocol connection or something like that. Can you let her know that Google is saying that. I can’t find a way to contact her. Thanks ever so much.
