Hello! It is all rainbows and unicorns!

Welcome back and it is the release day of Taylored Expressions January release. Hooray! It is time to get that wish list and shop the new release products. Today I am showcasing two more products.
The first one is called Dreamer Stamp and Die combo set

Totally adorable unicorns and I combined this with Rainbow Cutting Plate to make my card.


I stamped, coloured and die cut the unicorns. I used rainbow colours to colour because I am adding rainbows to the card. I die cut the rainbows using the Rainbow Cutting Plate. I am only using the strips of rainbow die cuts and not the entire cutting plate. I sponged distress inks in rainbow colours on ombre fashion on the strips. I also die cut two Rolling Hills and Stitched Cloud Duo using Buttercream Frost cardstock. The base panel is die cut using Oreo cardstock using the Stitched Rectangle Stacket die.



To assemble the card, I adhered the rainbow strips at an angle and trimmed the excess off. Then the rolling clouds is adhered on the bottom of the panel. The first two are flush adhered and the last one is foam adhered. I tucked the Unicorns behind the first clouds. Then added the Stitched Clouds. The sentiment also from Dreamers stamp and die combo is stamped using Oreo hybrid ink and die cut using the smallest Stitched Banner die from Stitched Banner Stackets. Finally embellished with some sparkly sequins from TE sequins collections. I have listed all the supplies used to make this card below.

The second product I am showcasing today is the new Kaleidoscope embossing folder.

I did some masking to highlight the beautiful patterns on the embossing folder on my card.


I trimmed a Sugar Cube panel and masked about an inch around the perimeter of the panel then sponged distress inks Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint. I removed the mask and ran the panel using the Kaliedoscope embossing folder. Love the pattern on the highlighted area of the panel. I adhered this panel on Oreo card base using foam adhesives. Then for the sentiment I die cut five Hello Script die, stacked and glued on top of each other, then brushed the top die cut with Wink of Stella clear shimmer. I adhered this sentiment on the top centre of the panel. Accented with Beetle enamel dots from Doodlebug.


All the supplies I used to make this card is listed below.

It's a Sign, So Let's talk!

Welcome back once again. Today is day #3 of Taylored Expression January release sneak peek. And I am sharing two more cards using two more new products to be released on Thursday. The first product I am showcasing is a stamp set called Give Me A  Sign! 

How cute are these animals holding the sign board? All the variety of sentiments that fit in the sign board. Absolutely adorable set. I am showcasing the bear image from the stamp set.


I did masking technique to stamp a series of bear image holding the sign board. The image that is in the front is stamped first using Oreo hybrid ink. Then masked the main image to stamp the images beside using Earl Grey dye ink. I repeated the process till the end of the panel. I highlighted the centre main image by colouring with copics. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment inside the sign board and the secondary image below the images using Oreo hybrid ink.


To celebrate the sentiment I sponged distress inks Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch on top and bottom of the panel. I added water to get spatter texture on the ink. Then I die cut a  Banner die from Skinny Party Border die using Lemon Meringue cardstock to add to the top of the panel. I adhered this panel on a white card base and added glossy accent on the nose of the bear.

The second product I am showcasing today is a die called Let's Talk Edger 3 die. There is already a Let's Talk Edger 1 and 2 die released last year. This one is the third in the series as it says in the name.

I combined the Let's Talk Edger 3 die with the new Exercise Grumplings stamp set to make this card. And it is my favourite card in this release.


I used the Let's Talk Edger 3 die at an angle with the sentiment from Exercise Grumplings stamp set. To highlight the sentiment I sponged Peacock Feathers distress inks. This sentiment is fantastic. Gave me the giggle as I can totally relate to it.


The focal point has one of the Exercise Grumpling image stamped, copic coloured and die cut using the coordinating die. I combined this image with Little Bits: Donuts, Little Bits: Hamburger and Little Bits: French Fries. I thought they were perfect together for the sentiment. LOVE how this card turned out. The Let's Talk Edger 3 die is perfect for this card.
