Taylored Expressions: 1 Product 3 Ways!

Happy Saturday!!

Today, I am sharing with you how to use 1 product, 3 ways! ๐Ÿ™‚ This saves time, shows off different uses for the products you have, and creates multiple projects in the end.

Let’s get started!

I used the Taylored Expressions Presents Cutting Plate to create three different themed cards (birthday, wedding, Christmas). I also took advantage and utilized TE Inside Scoop stamp series to use coordinating sentiments on the front and the inside. All supplies used are listed below, with the exception of a sneak peek (let’s see if you can guess what it is).

Here are the inside’s of all three cards. I love how TE creates such wonderful stamps for those who like to design the inside as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

Below, I will explain how each card was created.

  • Create an A2 sized cardbase from TE Sprinkles cardstock.
  • Also, create an A2 sized panel one eighth of an inch smaller for the inside panel. Ink and stamp (tone-on-tone) with TE Sprinkles ink and TE Twinkle Twinkle Background stamp.
  • Die-cut TE Sprinkles cardstock with the TE Presents Cutting Plate. Also, stamp/ink this die cut with TE Sprinkles ink and TE Twinkle Twinkle Background stamp for a continuous tone-on-tone look. The front of the card will match with the inside of the card. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Die-cut several colors of cardstock to fit behind the presents. Also, cut down a piece of patterned paper for the background of the shaker card.
  • Adhere a piece of acetate behind the TE Presents Cutting Plate, while at the same time place the sentiment strip (this way you can hide the edges under the cutting plate).
  • Adhere foam adhesive around the edges to create the shaker window. Place in shaker material and adhered to the cardbase.
  • Viola! The last bit one has to do, is stamp/ink the inside sentiment!

  • This wedding themed card was made similar to the first one with a few exceptions.
  • Instead of a shaker card, the background panel is a heat embossed panel using the TE Happy Flowers Background stamp. I thought this gave a nice elegant touch to the card, keeping a nice white-on-white color scheme.
  • You may be asking yourself where the sentiments to this card come from?! I am sneak peeking a new stamp set called, TE The Inside Scoop – Wedding. You will be able to view this entire stamp set during TE April Release week!!! It’s coming soon!

  • This last card was created in a similar fashion to the wedding themed card.
  • The background was a piece of patterned cardstock from the TE Build a Scene Christmas 6×6 paper pack. I added additional gold lines with a gold glitter pen and straight ruler. This added a bit of sparkle to the background!
  • The inside sentiment was stamped first and then die cut with the same cutting plate as the front so that it was a cohesive look. I also like adding in different techniques here and there to add more interest to the eye. ๐Ÿ™‚

In the end, I used the same cutting plate and similar techniques to create three different themed cards and saved myself a lot of time doing it all together! I hope this has helped your creative journey if you’re looking for a new and fresh idea with older (or newer) products you have at home! Please share your projects with me if you create some!

Have a fabulous day!

Taylored Expressions: Stamp Joy West Coast 2019

Good Morning, Everyone!

It is still cold here in the Midwest! Mother nature is undecided on the weather, but I look forward to Spring! Speaking of potential warmer weather, Taylored Expressions is moving their well-known and popular event, Stamp Joy, out to the West Coast in Irvine, California! How exciting is this?!

I wanted to share my past Stamp Joy 2018 experience with you all and share more details on the upcoming Stamp Joy West Coast 2019 event!

SJWCClassPic

I will be teaching a class called, “Shake ‘Em & Slide ‘Em“, which showcases how to make shaker cards and secret reveal cards! I love interactive cards and this is a fun way to show you my tips and tricks. You will create four cards in total, two shaker cards and two secret reveal cards. These cards are full of depth, dimension, and techniques! You will be in for a treat!

Below is a slideshow of each card individually with close ups! :D!

Here are just a few personal pictures I took from my phone to scrapbook later! ๐Ÿ™‚

Stamp Joy 2018 was my very first Stamp Joy experience, and it was amazing! I was extremely nervous to be teaching for the first time, but the entire TE crew made me feelย  warm and welcomed. I think that’s the best part of TE…the people. They make you feel like family, which then makes the word, “work”, seem effortless. I was super impressed by the set up and organization of the entire event! Even though I was part of the staff, I was secretly wanting to be a customer. TE had so many make-n-take stations, giveaways, classes, food stations, and an entire store set up to purchase brilliant products! It was most definitely a crafter’s paradise!

Whether you live near by or are traveling to Irvine, CA, for this wonderful event…I hope to see you there! Please say hi and let me know if you have any questions!

Have a beautiful week,

-Noriko

 

 

 

Taylored Expressions: Big Blooms – Hollyhocks

Happy Day!

How is everyone doing?! Hopefully, absolutely smashing! :)! Today, I have a project for you that I have slowly been working on since last summer. Boy, time flies when you’re having fun!

I took an online class for the first time, and it was fabulous! Self-paced and very detailed, which fits right up my alley with working shift hours in a hospital. I was so excited, I started by making backgrounds right away…but then I didn’t use any of them to create a card.

This is where saving inked backgrounds comes in handy, especially when you are crunched for time!

Let’s get started…
