I have two new sets to share with you today, and first up is a set of cards I created using the GORGEOUS new Faith In Bloom set! This set was illustrated by Emily Burger for the Embracing Grace line at Taylored Expressions and includes Bible verses and words of encouragement paired with beautiful flowers!
Here is a picture of my set of four cards. These were a snap to create and would be easy to mass produce...love that! I started with Kraft card bases for each, and on each one I stamped a Bible verse or phrase along with a flower from Faith In Bloom. I then impressed the front of each card using the new Houndstooth/Damask Taylored Impression Plate.
All of the patterned paper is Dwell from My Minds Eye, and I added a strip of patterned paper to the top of each card.
I adorned the patterned paper panel using the new Majestic Border Taylored Die. This is one of my all time favorite borders and I LOVE how it can go with any style card.
I added twine and buttons from my stash along the top of each card. Love the little pop that gives.
The bottom corners were all rounded with the Corner Chomper. LOVE that tool!
Here are the Taylored Dies and Taylored Impression Plate I used on my card set:
Next up I have a card using one of the four new a la cartes illustrated by Taylor for the te line at Taylored Expressions! Today, I've used Hope a la carte, and also being released are Faith and Grace, along with Lucky from the Whimsical Wishes line illustrated by Nancy Mckinney. LOVE the word a la carte stamps...they make creating a card SO easy!
Once again I used Dwell from My Minds Eye. I really loved the bright fun patterns with this stamp. I stamped the stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers. I cut out the panel using the Take Note 3 Taylored Die. I then traced the die onto Kraft cardstock and cut it out for an extra layer.
The layout is MOJO229 and the flowers were cut using the Bugabee Flowers Taylored Dies. I also used the Leafy Branch Taylored Die for a fun accent under the flowers. I popped up the focal panel and flowers with Foam Tape, and silver brads in the center of each flower, as well as on the side of the card, complete this one!
Here is a closeup of the flowers/leafy branch. LOVE them.
Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on my card:
