Yowza! How fast is this year flying by? You know how I know how fast a month goes by?....because it's time for Taylored Expressions Release Week again! Yep, it's time for four days of fun and sneak peeks and contests and all kinds of good stuff, courtesy of the Bakers Dozen Design Team and Taylored Expressions! Are you ready?
Today I am sharing two cards with you. They are totally different in styles, and showcase at least six new products that will be released on Thursday morning. (All the April Release items will be available in the TE store at 7am on Thursday!)
First up is a clean and simple watercolor card made with the new Sketched Blooms Stamp Set and new Labels Stacklets 8. I am really into watercoloring right now...and these flowers were the perfect thing to watercolor with Distress Inks.
Pretty and sweet and feminine! I love these flower stamps. I used the new Labels Stacklets 8 to make my layers. I popped the focus layer on some foam tape instead of doing the traditional layering. I kinda like it. Here you can see that my watercoloring was free and messy. No need to be a perfectionist here. I used my Distress Ink Pads and a watercolor brush.
This would be pretty as a set....so maybe I need to make some more of them! LOL. Perfect for any occasion with that sweet sentiment.
My second card for today features the cool new Various Vases Dies.... It's funny...when I get ready to sit down and make all my Design Team Projects each month, I lay all the new products out on my table and kind of stand there and see what 'speaks' to me. As soon as I saw these vases and the new Silhouette Stemps dies...a whole Palm Springs, Mid Century vibe came to me... That's what I tried to create in my card - a retro vibe. What do you think?
I used the Spotted Cutting Plate to make a cool background and then made the vases out of fun and funky 70's colors.
I layered two vases in order to avoid them being bumpy because of the circles layer. I put foam tape in between my layers. I lightly inked the edges of my vases with some Linen Distress Ink. This helps them pop off the page a bit more.
