Hi everyone! It’s day two of Taylored Expressions September birthday celebration and release sneak peeks! Everything we share this week will be available for purchase Thursday, September 7, 2017 at 9 am PST.
My first project today uses the new Thanks Script die. I kept things pretty simple and paired the die up with my favorite color scheme – grey, red and light blue. I used the Earl Grey dot paper from TE’s 6×6 paper pack – Playful Patterns – Haunted in the background.
I die cut two sizes of Bloomin’ Stacklets 2, the larger one from Salt Water Taffy and the smaller one from Sugar Cube. I sponged the smaller one with Cherry Pop ink, gently fading it to the middle. I die cut three Thanks Script cuts from Earl Grey and layered them together to give the die cut some dimension. I layered all of these elements together with foam tape and finished the card off with a Sugar Cube Enamel Shape.
For my second card I used Sitting Pretty – Fall Accessories with a bunch of previously released Sitting Pretty products. I have to laugh because my husband really liked this card then promptly asked why I don’t decorate the house to look like this. LOL!
We have very light colored walls in our house so I decided I wanted to emulate something I might be able to create at home so I went with a Sugar Cube background and began pulling in colors from our living room – brown and light blue then I added fall colors to go with the fall theme.
I added a bit of gold metallic embossing powder to some of the items because I like to decorate here and there with a bit of metallics.
This was such a fun card to put together – I had fun decorating and experimenting with arrangements. Now I just need to have my husband install some shelves like these in our kitchen!
