Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 2:You Make My Heart Pop!

Tuesday, December 5, 2017

Happy Tuesday Crafty Friends,

I hope you enjoyed Taylored Expressions first day of Sneak Peek Week. Are you excited about February? Are you ready to share a little LOVE? Today, I am sharing projects featuring the new Matchy Matchy-Foodie Friends and All Tucked In die.

Oh, yes! This stamp set is too cute for words. The minute I laid eyes upon that popcorn image and sentiment, I was in love. To create this card, I used the Stitched Heart Stacklets dies to create my popping heart. I embossed the heart using the Loopy Loops embossing folder, which perfectly matches the new Playful Patterns-Valentine pattern paper from TE.  I carefully cut the heart into four quadrants using a craft knife. By spritzing a little water on the Red Pepper cardstock, I was able to gently fold back the four pieces. Next, I used the Fresh Florals dies to create the popcorn pieces using Sugar Cube cardstock. I then embossed the faux popcorn with the Twirls and Swirls embossing folder and inked the edges with Dijon and Potato Chip dye inks. After stamp and coloring the popcorn image with Copic markers, I assembled the popping, popcorn heart with foam adhesive to add dimension. Twine, pattern paper and a funny sentiment complete this card.

My second project features the All Tucked In die.

The All Tucked In die creates cute little gift boxes, which are perfect for hiding a little treat for your loved one or friend. To create these boxes, I utilized some of my favorite cardstock colors: Red Pepper, Lollipop, and Salt Water Taffy. With the Red Pepper and Lollipop boxes, I used the Brushed Hearts Background stamp and white embossing powder to create a fun, but simple pattern paper. The Salt Water Taffy box, features an embossed texture and a floral arrangement to add a little visual interest.

The boxes can be used to hold chocolates, trinkets, Post It Notes and other small items.

A sentiment on the back sweetens the deal. =)
