Card Cafe Thursday with Taylored Expressions (new product alert!)

Card Cafe Thursday with Taylored Expressions (new product alert!)

Good morning SCT friends! We are pleased to welcome Taylor VanBruggen, owner of Taylored Expressions, to Card Cafe Thursday! Taylor is here to share a sweet card she created exclusively for us but also to share a brand new product! And we're very excited about this new product 🙂

SCTMagProject1Supplies (all Taylored Expressions unless otherwise noted): Stamps: Fresh Florals; Dies: Fresh Florals, Frame in Frame 2 Cutting Plate; Embossing Folder: Garden Party; Ink: Cookie Monster, Jelly Donut, Peapod, Strawberry Milkshake, Lollipop, Oreo; Cardstock: Sugar Cube, Lollipop, Cookie Monster; Other: Build a Scene Matched Sequins, Foam Tape (3M), Best Glue Ever (ScraPerfect)

"I love arranging small bouquets of stamped florals! I began by filling an entire sheet with stamped images from the Fresh Florals set in various colors of coordinating ink. Then I die cut everything with the coordinating dies. I used the Garden Party Embossing Folder to emboss the frame around the outside of a piece of Sugar Cube cardstock. Next, I stamped the leaves in Peapod directly on the inside of the embossed frame. The scalloped frame die-cut provides the perfect place to house a lovely bouquet and fits exactly in the open space of the embossed design. I then adhered the frame (cut from Lollipop cardstock) to the inner portion and began building my bouquet from there. Note: Give your bouquet dimension by choosing a couple blooms to elevate with foam tape. Finish by stamping the sentiment at the bottom and adhering the panel to a Cookie Monster card base!" ~ Taylor
