A Happy Day

Hello friends!!  Things have been quite slow on my blog.  Sorry about that.  Some of my design team terms have come to an end and I have been so busy in my everyday life, I haven't had a whole lot of time to create.  I have been working on new projects for the upcoming March release with Taylored Expressions, though and I get to start sharing those with you later this week, but first I have this card to share with you that I created with the February release.....

I created this card with the new Walking on Sunshine embossing folder.  I embossed the Potato Chip (yellow) cardstock and then added some hand stitching along the 'rays'.  I added a circle with a sentiment stamped from the new Tag-a-long Easter stamp set and colored in the Happy with my Copic markers.  Here is a closer look at the embossing.....

To finish off the card, I tied a big pink bow up at the top.  I hope that you are going to have some Happy Days this week.  Don't forget to come back and check out what I have created with the new March release from Taylored Expressions.

Hugs,
Amy

Easter Tags with Taylored Expressions

Spring is just around the corner and it is time to start thinking about those spring projects.  I have this sweet set of Easter tags that I created with the new February release with Taylored Expressions using the new Tag-a-long Easter stamp set and the Tag-a-long Easter coordinating die set.

The tags are cut out with the new Build A Tag 3 dies.  I colored in the stamped and die cut images with my Copic markers.  There is a strip of grass at the bottom of each tag that I cut using the Grass Border Die.  I added a strip of paper from the new For Peeps Sake 6x6 patterned paper pack.  Take a closer look at each of the tags.....













I finished off each of the tags with some sequins and then tied some bakers twine from The Twinery to the tops of each of them.

I hope that you are inspired to get some fun spring themed projects done, too.  I don't know what it is about the warmer weather, but I seem to be inspired more than when I am in colder weather.  How about you??

Have a blessed day!!

Hugs,
Amy

February Release Day with Taylored Expressions

Hello friends!!  Today is the awesome day that I get to share with you a project that I have created with the new release from Taylored Expressions.  I just love the fun Easter themes and projects that have been created with these new sets.  Take a peek at my card today....

I got to use the new Wishes on a Wire - Easter stamp and I stamped it on some white cardstock that I cut out with the Postage Stamp Stacklets.  I colored in my image with Copic markers and then added a few white pen details.  Take a closer look at my image.....

I used the new For Peep's Sake patterned paper pack and also the Lot of Dots embossing folder.  To finish off the card, I added a bit of machine stitching, the Open Scallop Border die, some ribbon, and a button.

I hope you will hop on over to the Taylored Expressions blog to see the whole release.  Don't forget to check out what the other designers have created with this fab new release, too.

Have a great day!!

Hugs,

Happy New Home!

Hello friends!!  I am happy to share with you another of the fabulous cards I created with the January release over at Taylored Expressions.....the reveal for the February release begins tomorrow.

For my card today, I used the Happy New Home stamp and die combination.  Take a look at this fun and happy card.....

I colored the roof, windows, door, and chimney with my Copic markers and then added some paper from the Rainbow Brights 6x6 paper pack to paper piece over the house and also for the sky in the background which is cut with the Label Stacklets 7.  The card base is embossed with the Lots of Dots embossing folder.  Take a closer look at my card.....

I added some grass with the Grass Border die and then put the sentiment on one of the Banner Stacklets 1.  To finish off the card, I tied it up with some Solid Natural bakers twine from The Twinery.

Wouldn't this be a fab way to welcome someone into a new home??  I hope that you are having a great weekend!!  See you on Thursday with my project with the new February release!!

I am entering this in the Wednesday Sketch Challenge at the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog HERE
