Taylored Expressions Preview Day 1!!!

Happiness Always by Jen Shults

Yay! It’s time for a new Taylored Expressions Preview week and oh my do we have some of the cutest new stamp sets on the way for you.

Today I’m using two new sets, the brand new Rose Wreath and Rosy Posey, both sets are designed by Nancy McKinney and the Rose Wreath set is a continuation of the TE Seasonal Wreath Collection concepted by Jami Sibley.

Rosy Posey is a beautiful set of whimsical roses! This set coordinates with the Rose Wreath, new Rosy Posy Taylored Die set, Mini Leaves Die set, and Leafy Branch die. Anyone who loves roses will go crazy for this set!  Full size set includes 19 images/sentiments. Rose Wreath is a new addition to the very popular Seasonal Wreath collection and includes 5 images/sentiments.

On my card I used the new Splitcoaststampers Double Dutch card tutorial and made this fun Rosy any occasion card. On the front I combined the wreath from the Rose Wreath with one of the roses from Rosy Posey (they match perfectly) and colored them both with Copics. I cut the wreath out using a Spellbinders die and distressed the edges with a Tonic distress tool. I cut the rose and leaves out using the coordinating Rosy Posey dies. Under the wreath I added a die cut of the new Layered Doily Dies (I used the heart die). I have to say I was very impressed with the cutting of this die… it cuts very fine lines and details perfectly and the die released the paper very easily without any trouble with catching or tearing. I layered this on top of a Frame It Up 1 die cut. Matte this layer I traced the die in pencil onto black cardstock and handcut the matte. The rest of the card is made of matted and distressed paper from the MME Lost and Found Blush collection.

The inside of the card consists of Choice Snowwhite cardstock matted in black and simple strip of MME Blush paper matted on pink. In the middle is a sentiment from the Rose Wreath set that says Happiness Always and is die cut using a Spellbinders Oval and distressed a bit on the edges. All images on this card are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Choice Snow White Cardstock.
