Taylored Expressions Release Day: Sending Sunshine and Flowers Your Way

Thursday, February 9, 2017

Hello Taylored Expressions Fans,

Wahoo! Today is Thursday! Release Day! All the goodies you have been eyeing all week are now available for purchase. Today, I am showcasing the Bloomin' Background stamp and Rainboot Bouquet stamp and coordinating die.


Normally, I am a winter type of lady, but these beautiful flower stamps and dies are making me long for warm weather and the beauty of spring. To create this card, I heat embossed the Bloomin' Background stamp with Ranger's silver pearl embossing powder onto heavy weight vellum. I then used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens to color the image. I love the bold colors on the vellum. The floral bouquet framing the sentiment was created using greenery from the Spring Florals and Fresh Florals stamp and die sets. I stamped the images in Plum Punch, Lavender Glaze, Strawberry Milkshake, Candy Corn, Sprinkles and Sweet Basil dye ink. I completed the card by matting the vellum onto an A2 sized Jelly Donut top-folding card base using Diamond Glaze (a great liquid adhesive that minimizes the look of adhesive on vellum).


Card Size: A2
Card Supplies: Ranger (silver pearl embossing powder), Diamond Glaze



The second card features the Rainboot Bouquet and coordinating die paired with the Walking On Sunshine embossing folder.

I like the sentiment "Sending Sunshine" and loved the idea of it complementing the rainboots. The Walking On Sunshine embossing folder provided the sunshine backdrop I was looking for. I dry embossed the image using heavy weight vellum and then used colored pencils and Gamsol to color the sun and the rays. I stamped, colored (with Copic markers) and die cut the Rainboot Bouquet. A heat embossed sentiment and enamel shapes in Jelly Donut and Lollipop complete this card.
