Taylored Expressions 10th Birthday

Come celebrate Taylored Expressions 10th anniversary.

Good Wednesday morning.  Today I’m joining forces with 40 paper crafting designers to celebrate the 10th year birth of Taylored Expressions business.   You can find all the information about this fun celebration and the full list of designers on the Taylored Expressions blog post.  Taylor’s September release is full of fun birthday stamp and die sets and you can find the complete release listed here.

Come check out how I made this fun die cut tropical scene birthday card with flamingos.

I had lots of fun creating this tropical scene using the Build a Scene Tropical Die Set and Tropical Trio Stamp and Die Set.  I loved using all the different foliage and palm tree dies to create the base of the scene.  The flamingos were fun to feature in the scene along with the “Happy Bird-Day” sentiment place on the sun.

I have enjoyed using Taylor’s products for years.  When I began writing my post I decided to go and check out my Taylored Expressions category and found 54 projects using her products over the years.  There are way too many TE projects for me to share on my blog today so I decided to share two that I made when I was a guest designer on Taylor’s blog. 

KC Taylored Expressions Shade Tree Cutting Plate 2 center

I loved creating this fun shade tree window scene for one of my guest designer posts.  I created a see thru window and modified the Shade Tree cutting plate by removing the frame and trimming the leaves.  I knew the window scene would not be complete without a few flower pots and a garden of flowers around the base of the tree and window.

KC Taylored right

I had a wonderful time making this fall project for another of my guest designer appearances on Taylor’s blog. I’m sure you’ll agree with me that Taylor creates the most wonderful cutting plates.  I have so many of them in my stash and I can’t even imagine trying to pick a favorite.  This project was made using several different die sets and I love the outcome.

Share Joy Campaign

At the heart of Taylored Expressions is a mission to share joy through the gift of handmade cards. As part of their 10th birthday TE is continuing that mission with the launch of a special Share Joy campaign focused on providing birthday cards to those in nursing homes and assisted-living facilities across the U.S. To make as deep an impact as possible TE is inviting card makers everywhere to join the campaign. Will you join us? Find out how to participate by viewing their Share Joy page here: https://tayloredexpressions.com/share-joy.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my Taylored Expressions project and I know you will love hopping over to the TE blog to see the complete list of designers taking place in this wonderful family reunion to celebrate Taylor and her business

Die Cut Woody and Surf Boards for DTGD Day 5

My project today is a die cut Woody and Surf Boards card made for Dare To Get Dirty Day 5 of the Splitcoaststampers Dare To Get Dirty week long challenge event. This event is a special thank you to all of the fan club members who support the site all year long. Have you had a desire to be on the Dirty Dozen design team? This special week of challenges will give you tons of opportunity to be inspired and to show off your wonderful and creative projects right along with the current Dirty Dozen team as well as the alumni team members.  Are you a member of the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club? If not go here to check out all the benefits of being a member. If you are a member hop right on over the special challenge forum here.

I woudl like to invite you to come see how I made this sunny die cut woody and surf boards card.

The Sand, Water and Sky Background

The sand was created using Antique Linen ink, a stylus tool and foam tip.  Next, I used Tumbled Glass ink to create a darker shade for the  water and attempted to make it look like high rolling waves for surfing, and then applied a lighter shade of blue using the same ink and a cloud template.  I heat dried the ink and then applied white embossing paste to the water area to create the appearance of sea foam and then sprinkled it with clear glitter to add sparkle.

The Frame

The frame was cut using the Impression Obsession Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames.  I turned the frames face down and attached the two pieces together using double stick tape.  Next, I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it over the beach scene background.

I woudl like to invite you to come see how I made this bright and sunny die cut woody and surf boards card.

The Woody and Plane

The Woody was cut using both red and woodgrain cardstock.  The different sections were turned face down and attached together using double stick tape.  I wanted the tires to look a little oversized so I used a circle punch to cut two black circles and then attached the red die cut wheels with glossy accents. I cut the surfboard twice in yellow and blue and attached to the top of the car with double stick tape.

The plane was cut using bright yellow cardstock and the banner was cut using white cardstock.  I cut two thin strips of red cardstock and attached them to the plane using glossy accents to add interest and break up the yellow.  I used a black marker to hand write the Surf’s Up sentiment on the banner.

Assembling the Die Cut  Woody and Surf Boards

I cut one section of the beach fence and applied Vintage Photo ink to color it.  I cut a few sections of the Small Grass using green cardstock.  I cut the beach fence in half and gently bent the sections to create an old appearance.  I tucked the fence sections in behind the frame and attached them in place with glossy accents.  Next, I tucked the grass sections behind and around the fence sections and attached with glossy accents. The Woody, plane and banner were attached to the frame using mounting tape to complete the scene.

I woudl like to invite you to come see how I made this bright die cut woody and surf boards card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut Woody and surf boards beach scene card.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Beach Scene Card With Die Cuts for Dare To Get Dirty Day 1

Dare To Get Dirty Day 1

I have a fun beach scene card with die cuts to share with you today made for day one of the Splitcoaststampers Dare To Get Dirty week long challenge event. This event is a special thank you to all of the fan club members who support the site all year long. Have you had a desire to be on the Dirty Dozen design team? This special week of challenges will give you tons of opportunity to be inspired and to show off your wonderful and creative projects right along with the current Dirty Dozen team as well as the alumni team members.  Are you a member of the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club? If not go here to check out all the benefits of being a member. If you are a member hop right on over the special challenge forum here.

Come see my sparkling beach scene card with die cuts, embossing paste and glitter.

The Frame, Sand, Water and Sky

I started by cutting the frame, two hand cut sand layers and the water and sky scene layer.  I applied Antique Linen and Tumbled Glass inks to the frame with ink blending tools and cloud templates.  I wanted the scene to carry seamlessly from the frame to the background scene. I applied the tan ink to both hand cut sand sections.  Next I used a background stamp and Vintage Photo ink to stamp a bit of texture to the hand cut sand pieces as well as the frame.

I applied tan ink to the scene base to create the beach, masked off the water line and applied the blue ink to create the ocean.  I removed the mask and created the cloudy sky using blue ink and a cloud template.  I finished the scene base by dabbing white embossing paste to the water using my finger to create sea foam and then applied clear glitter to add shimmer to the scene.

I applied double stick tape to the lower back portion of the frame and attached one of the hand cut sand sections.  Next I applied mounting tape to the back of the frame, attached it to the scene base and then attached the whole frame scene to the white card base.

Come see my relaxing beach scene card with die cuts, embossing paste and glitter.

Assembling the Beach Scene Card with Die Cuts

I cut the chairs, birds, umbrella, grass, flip flops and bucket.  I cut the umbrella two times, once in blue and again in yellow to create the colorful layers.  I repeated the same colors for the bucket, flip flops and bucket.  The chairs and birds were cut using white.  I applied Pumice Stone ink to the birds using a mini applicator.  The grass was cut using green cardstock.  

The front sand sections was attached to the frame using thin strips of mounting tape.  The chairs and umbrella were attached in behind the sand using pieces of mounting tape.  I secured the grass sections in around the chairs and attached with glossy accents. The birds were attached in the sky using pieces of mounting tape.  The flip flops were attached with glossy accents and the bucket was tucked in behind the sand and attached with mounting tape.  I cut a few strips of blue cardstock, attached it to a piece of yellow cardstock, frayed the edges to create the appearance of a towel and then attached it over the arm of the Adirondack chair with glossy accents and mounting tape.

Come see my sparkling and relaxing beach scene card with die cuts, embossing paste and glitter.

I had so much fun making my beach scene card with die cuts.  I hope you have been inspired to get out your paper, inks and dies and come join the fun over at Splitcoaststampers Dare To Get Dirty week.

Essentials by Ellen Beach Lady and Color Trend

Good Wednesday morning. My project today was created using the brand new Color Trend from Ellen Hutson LLC, the Quietude Color Palette. 

Color Trend July Quietude (003)

I used several colors from the color palette to create a fun summer scene card made using the Essentials by Ellen Beach Lady and Pattern Play.  I used the Impression Obsession All-in-One Frames Rectangles 2.

Come see how I made this fun scene card using the Essentials by Ellen Beach Lady.

The Framed Background

I hand cut two sections of cardstock using my deckle scissors to create layers of sand.  I applied Antique Linen ink to the layers using a mini applicator, then applied glue and clear glitter to add a sparkle to the sand.  The two frame layers were attached together using double stick tape and then both sand layers were attached to the back of the frame with double tick tape.  I finished by applying thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it over the blue sentiment layer.

The Beach Lady and Accessories

I stamped the lady on hot press watercolor paper and all the accessories and the lady’s dress on white cardstock.  I used black versafine ink to stamp the images and then embossed her with clear embossing powder.  I used reinkers and a watercolor brush to color the lady skin and hair.  I applied purple ink to the pattern stamp using a marker and stamped the image on the dress.  I colored in the flowers using a rose pink marker.  All the accessories were colored with the pink and purple markers.  I hand cut all the images and paper pieced the dress.  The hat and towel were attached to the lady’s hand using glossy accents. The shells were attached to the basket using glossy accents.  The lady and accessories were attached to the scene using pieces of mounting tape.  I finished the scene with a few shore birds.

Come see how I made this fun card using the Essentials by Ellen Beach Lady.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Beach Lady project and I sure do appreciate you coming by.

Die Cut Flip Flops Beach Scene

Good Monday morning.  I have a fun die cut flip flops beach scene to share with you today using the Impression Obsession Better with Flip Flops as the focal point.  I paired it with Flip Flops, Beach Fence, Small Grass Border and Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames.

I hope you'll come check out how I made this die cut flip flops beach scene.

The Sand, Ocean and Sky

I have to admit that the colors for the sentiment and ocean were chosen to match the flower designer paper that I used for the flip flops.  I used a stylus and foam tip to apply tan ink to the sand area of the scene.  I cut an additional strip of sand using my deckle scissors and and colored it to match the scene base.  I cut a piece of Eclipse masking tape, placed it across the middle of the scene layer and applied the navy ink with the stylus and foam tip.  The mask was removed and I used the stylus and foam tip along with a cloud stencil to create the clouds.  I dabbed the stylus foam tip on scratch paper several times before using it with the stylus since the ink was so dark.  I wanted the same shade of blue for the sky but only wanted light touches of it.

The Sea Foam

I heat dried the scene so the brown and blue ink would not seep out onto the white embossing paste.  Then I dabbed embossing paste on the water area of the scene to create the sea foam and sprinkled it with glitter before it dried to add sparkle.

Come check out how I made this die cut flip flops beach scene card.

The Frame, Grass and Fence

I used double stick tape to attach the two largest frame sections together and then attached the sand layer to the back bottom of the frame.  I applied thin strips of mounting tape all the way around the back of the frame and then attached it over the scene card base.  I colored the fence sections and bent them a little bit to make it appear old.  I tucked the fence and grass in behind the sand layer and attached using glossy accents.

Finishing the Die Cut Flip Flops Beach Scene

I cut the sentiment using dark blue paper to match the ocean and flowers in the flip flops.  Oooops…..it was a little to large to fit inside the sky area of the scene without overlapping the dark blue water and making it so you couldn’t read the last word.  I had no choice but to secure some of the sentiment to the top of the frame.  I rolled up a long strip of 1/4″ double stick tape and attached pieces of it to the back of several keys letters and attached it to the scene. 

rolled double stick tape 2

I cut the flip flops out of retired designer paper and attached the pieces together using glossy accents.  I finished by attaching the flip flops to the frame with pieces of mounting tape. 

I hope you'll come check out how I made this fun die cut flip flops beach scene.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut flip flops beach scene with the deep blue sea.  It is a bit unusual but I really like how it pops against the pure white frame and card base.

Framed Beach Scene with Kittie Kits Stamps

I had a fun time today creating a framed beach scene with Kittie Kits Stamps using the Beach Master by Rubbernecker Stamps.  The frame was made using the 5132D Rectangle Combo #2 OPC frame.

Come check out my framed beach scene with Kittie Kits stamps.

The Sand, Water and Sky

I started by applying the sand to the scene using  Antique Linen ink with a stylus and foam tip.  I applied a strip of Eclipse tape across the scene to create a mask for the water line and then applied Tumbled Glass ink with a stylus and foam tip.  I removed the mask and used a cloud stencil and an ink blending tool to apply Tumbled Glass ink to the sky.

The Fence and Sea Grass

I used Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo Distress markers to apply ink to the fence and sea grass stamps and stamped the images around the scene.  I used one of the sand images and Vintage Photo ink to stamp texture around the sea grass and then used a mini applicator to sponge brown to the areas around the sea grass and fence.  I wanted to keep the center of the sand lighter to give the impression of a path out to the ocean.

 

Come check out my summery framed beach scene with Kittie Kits stamps.

Completing the Framed Beach Scene with Kittie Kits Stamps

I applied touches of white embossing paste with my finger to create sea foam in the water and washing up on the sand.  Then I sprinkled the embossing paste with clear glitter to add a touch of sparkle to the simple scene.  I finished the scene by attaching the frame to the scene using strips of mounting tape.

Come check out my framed pretty beach scene with Kittie Kits stamps.

Rubbernecker produced the Kittie Kits ” Cause a Scene” Beach Master set back in 2008 and I had such a wonderful time playing with the images.  Although I mostly use dies in my crafting now I still love creating a framed beach scene with Kittie Kits stamps.  You can take a look at my step by step beach scene tutorial if you would like to see how I made this scene. I hope you are enjoying your weekend and I appreciate you coming by.
