Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 3: Happy Mail

Wednesday, November 1, 2017

Oh Dear Friends,

It is Wednesday! One more day until release day! How are you? Have you been inspired to make a few handmade gifts this holiday season? Today, I am sharing with you the new Bubble Greetings stamp set and the Envelope Liner die.

I know that lettering/typography is all the rage right now, so this stamp set is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. To create this card, I started by creating a floral background using the Simply Stamped-Roses and coordinating dies. Once I had my background in place, I inked around the floral composition using Salt Water Taffy (my favorite ink color) to mute the starkness of  the white background. I heat embossed the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment using black embossing powder. A few vellum butterflies adds dimension to the one-layer card.

My second project is a trio of stamped envelopes paired with the new Envelope Liner die.

After all the time you spent designing and making your card, does the card not deserve a fitting envelope for mailing? The new Envelope Liner die beautifies the inside of the envelope, while the mailing stamps, an expanding collection, adds a touch of whimsy to the outside. To create my trio of envelopes, I used the new Playful Patterns-Bold and Savory pattern papers for the liners and the Merry Mail 1 stamps for my images. I colored the stamped images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens to minimize bleed through while coloring.
