Today we have three fantastic stamp sets to show you today: Thankful, Sunflower Wreath, Thanks A la Carte. I had the great pleasure of working with Thankful which is a full sized set including 15 stamps. This set was concepeted by our very own Jami Sibley and illustrated by Doug Applegate. All Taylored Expressions stamps are made of premium red rubber mounted on EZ Mount and are precut so they are ready to use the minute you get them. Taylored Expressions sets come on a full color plastic panel perfect for storage in a mini binder box.
For my card I started with the Accordion Card tutorial at Splitcoaststampers. I altered the shape of the card just a bit from the tutorial but everything else is pretty much the same. The base of the card is made from kraft cardstock and cream cardstock. I used a Spellbinders Label 8 die for the shape of the card and layered that with Echo Parks Times and Season’s paper (I LOVE this paper!!). The sentiment panel is cut using Spellbinders Label 18 and stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and sponged with brown ink. To finish the front I added some black Want 2 Scrap rhinestone swirls and some dots around the inside edge of the sentiment panel with Platinum Liquid Pearls. To tie the card closed I used cream organza ribbon.
On the first two pages of the inside of the card I used two more stamps from the Thankful set, the cornucopia and another fantastic sentiment. I stamped the cornucopia on Choice Buttercream cardstock and colored it with Copic markers. I die cut the image with a Spellbinders Label 18 and sponged inside the die with brown ink and added some Platinum Liquid Pearls around the outside edge. I also added a few Kaiser rhinestones to the corners. On the second page I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black onto more Choice Buttercream and cut it out with Label 18 and sponged inside with brown ink and added Liquid Pearl dots in Platinum. The leaves at the bottom are the brand new Taylored Leaf Dies (I LOVE THESE DIES!!!!). I sponged the leaves with brown ink to give them a realistic feel. The designer paper background on these two pages are from Echo Park’s Times and Sesaons 6×6 set.
The next two pages have a base of more Echo Park Times and Seasons paper and are decorated with Spellbinder’s dies. The left page uses a die from Spellbinder’s Floral Doily Accents, brown ink, green Kaiser rhinestones and Platinum Liquid Pearls. The right page has a spot for writing and is decorated with a Label 18 die cut sponged with brown ink and edged with Platinum Liquid Pearls.
