Taylored Expressions February Spotlights: He is Risen and Whimsy Alpha Dies


It’s February Spotlight day at Taylored Expressions. Today I’m using the He is Risen stamp set as well as a whole bunch of dies.

Joy Is Renewed by Jen Shults

For my card I started with a Choice Snow White Cardbase and MME’s The Sweetest Thing Tangerine paper (I know, I know… they make other paper but I have to ask the question… why use it if I really LOVE this paper pad) and this week’s MojoMonday sketch. I stamped this sentiment from He is Risen and die cut it using the smalled Banner Stacklet 1 die and matted it on the next size up. To finish up I added a bit of twine thread (I know you are shocked) and a Prima flower. I’m thinking this card is going in the stash of cards that I’m building to send to my husband’s great aunt. She just loves handmade cards and I always have a little stash going for her and send them off every once in a while. 🙂

For my second card I set out to use nothing but dies and I managed to accomplish it. I love cards like this… they are so clean and though not always simple. I really like the sharp smooth edges a die based card has. 🙂

I started my card with a Choice Snow White cardbase. I then used the new Circles Cutting Plate to die cut the background, again out of Choice Snow White cardstock. I then layered three different sizes of Banner Stacklets 1 cut from Authentiques Lovely paper pad.  Next I die cut the 4ever from the Whimsy #’s and Whimsy Alpha dies. That little hearts are from the Cupid’s Arrow die set. I spaced everything out with a little bit of foam tape.

  1. I just adore that alphabet font! I don’t know how often I’d use it, but I would love to have it just to look at it. Maybe TE need to make an alphabet stamp set like that???

  2. Your take on the mojo sketch is fabulous, Jen!! Just LOVE the sentiment!! Great mix of papers too. Second card with the lattice is so fun 🙂 The script is fabulous. Great work as always 🙂

  3. Wowie Jen!! These are both just FABULOUS!! Love the Pretty Papers and layering on your first one and LOVE the combo of banners, whimsie alphas and the Circle cutting plate!! Wowie!!! Just Super my friend! I think I feel a serious CASE coming on, lol 😎
