Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 2...An A-Mazing Love Train

Tuesday, December 6, 2016

Welcome Taylored Expressions Fans,

Today kicks off day two of Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks. How did it go yesterday? Did you have fun viewing all the A-Mazing projects from the Creative Team? Well get ready for more fun! All Aboard!

Today, I am sharing two cards featuring the Love Train stamp and coordinating die, along with the You A-Maze Me stamp set.

This card was so much fun to make. The Love Train is a great stamp and die set that works perfectly for Valentine's Day, birthdays or anytime your want to share a little love =) To create this card, I used my MISTI to stamp and then die cut the images. The curved railroad track was created by bending the rubber cling stamp around a circle die cut from the Stitched Circle Stacklets. I then used the same circular die to cut a circle in pattern paper from Echo Park's Party Time collection. To add a little focal interest behind the M&M treats, I dry embossed a piece of Cookie Monster cardstock using Taylored Expressions Streamers embossing folder. I filled the treat cup with M&Ms and adhered it to the Cookie Monster cardstock base. Once complete, I matted the pattern paper on top and started to build the train scene. A little Glossy Accents added to the hearts and windows of the train cars complete this card.

The second card features the You Amaze Me stamp set.

The script writing from this stamp set is so pretty, I decided to use it to create a fun background to showcase the A-Mazing heart by stamping the sentiment multiple times across a piece of Sugar Cube cardstock. The use of various design elements: layering, heat embossing (Ranger Superfine Black embossing powder), textured background (Loopy Loops embossing folder) and a heart shaker pocket create a visually interesting card. The shaker heart was created using a template die cut from the Stitched Heart Stacklets, Project Life page protectors and the Fuse tool. I left an opening at the top of the heart and filled it with sequins and other shiny pretties. A vellum tag stamped with the word 'Valentine' complete this card.
