Taylored Expressions Release Day: Take Life One Load At A Time

Thursday, March 9, 2017

Happy Thursday Crafty Friends,

Release Day is here! All the craft goodies you have been eying are available for purchase. Wahoo! Today, I am sharing cards featuring Spin Cycle and an addition to the Door to Door collection, a new hinged door, Door to Door 2.

I love mixing several stamps, and this card is no exception. I used a TE classic, Wash.Dry.Repeat, to create the background for this card and to die cut the ironing board, which is paper-pieced together. The card also uses clothing from the Little Bits - Clothing Confetti die. I used the clothing in a previous card, and all that die cutting paid off...EXTRAS. Yippee! The Spin Cycle die can create both a washer and dryer for added versatility and makes a great shaker element. Once all the pieces for the card were die cut, it was time to put the card together. A cute sentiment and an enamel heart, in Cookie Monster, complete this card.

The second card features Door to Door 2 and Door to Door Sentiments, which is both heartwarming and funny (i.e. Knock Knock...).

To create this card, I started by first die cutting all the pieces and then building my scene from back to front. The exception is the porch front. In designing the front porch, I left a 1/4" space from the bottom of the card. This would allow for the step to be attached to the card base front. To create a bricked porch, I used the Subway Tiles embossing folder to dry embossing the tile image onto Poppy Seed cardstock. A white gel simulates the appearance of grout. A couple planters and floral arrangement on the door, add real curb appeal to this home.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have enjoyed this month's release. We look forward to seeing what you create. Head on over to the TE Blog to see if you are the lucky winner of some crafty goodness! Good Luck!

Happy Crafting,
