It's the big day! All of the Taylored Expressions
products that you've seen through sneak peek week are now available - and I have a few more to show you. Be sure to head over to the Taylored Expressions blog
for a few more peeks - and to see if you've won a prize!
If you are lucky enough to have guys in your life who appreciate fancy-schmancy cards, count your blessings. My guys stand over my desk, watch me put three little sequins on, and proclaim "too much bling". If you know my cards, I am not heavy on the bling!! (Thank goodness for my new house with a craft room with a door that closes!
So I do struggle creating cards for my guys that are very simple yet still unique and interesting. I love the Caps Lock series of products for this - with Caps Lock - Love
being the newest.
You'll notice that I still stuck three little sequins on this card!! Although I'm sure my guys will notice, the sky really just needed some sparkle. The Caps Lock dies are a nice simple font and are perfect for eclipse cards - but also for other clean-lined looks. When I saw the Caps Lock Companion - Love sentiment stamp set included "is in the air" - I envisioned the letters floating on the clouds. Luckily, Taylored Expressions has Build a Scene - Rolling Clouds and Build a Scene paper pack to help me accomplish that!
And now I have one of those difficult masculine Valentine's cards done!!
Here's the supply list for this card and keep reading because there's one more sneak peek.
Continuing on the masculine theme - there's a new addition to the Cutting Edge series. It's Cutting Edge - Hearts. At first glance, I didn't think it could be masculine because of all of the frills and details. But then I realized two things. (1) I had not yet shown you two of the new colors - Gumball and Mushroom (which is lovely with Sea Salt - be still my heart!) and (2) my goal for my guys is unique and interesting and the idea of dozens of hearts "bursting with love" doesn't get much better.
I heat embossed and cut three of the border dies in the masculine colors, then layered them up. I wanted a bit more blue, so there's a single heart too that I added at the top.
No more chatter from me - the TE store is open!
