Taylored Expressions October Release Previews – A Flurry of Winter Wishes

Hi everyone! I’m back today to share two more samples of Taylored Expressions‘ upcoming October 5 release. Do you have a favorite so far? If so, I’m curious to know.  :)

My first card uses beautiful Winter White stamp set with Snowed in Sayings. Winter White is definitely one of my favorites from this release.  The snowflakes are just so beautiful.

I first stamped the snowflakes onto Arches 140 lb. coldpress watercolor paper using Sugar Cube pigment ink.  I white embossed then loosely watercolored over the snowflakes using Mermaid Lagoon and Shaded Lilac Distress inks. It’s such a pretty color combo, I think.

Once the watercoloring was completely dry, I stamped the sentiment and rounded the corners. I adhered foam tape to the back then adhered to a Sprinkles card base.

As a finishing touch, I decided to adhere a super sparkly Swarovski crystal to each snowflake center.


My next card uses new Big Blooms Poinsettia with Peace Script.

The poinsettia was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card then colored with Copic markers.  I die-cut Peace from new Gold Foil card stock (which is LOVELY) and adhered that to a block of vellum.

Copic markers – R24, R29, R89, Y17, YR14

I strategically placed tiny dots of Multi Medium Matte to inconspicuously adhere the vellum over the colored image, then layered that over gold foil. I tied the gold twine (which also helps to hold the vellum in place) then adhered all to my card base.Stamped envelope detail

To quickly and easily dress up a coordinating envelope, I used Delicata Golden Glitz ink to stamp a poinsettia border from new Merry Mail 2.
