Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!

 

I made two cards on Friday to share today using Taylored Expressions stamps.

 

Here is the first one using Light Up the Night.  Do you see Mickey?  I didn’t even notice at first but there is a Mickey head out of the 3 big fireworks! I colored the fireworks using several Stampin’ Up! markers – Raspberry Ripple, Midnight Muse, Island Indigo and Lost Lagoon.

 

2016 Card 68 - Taylored Expressions Light Up the Night

 

The plaid paper was cut using an MFT Cover Up die – the Stitched Cover Up companion – Vertical. I added a few star brads from my stash to complete the card.

 

Here is the second card using the 4th of July Wreath.  I stamped it on a tag cut from Build a Tag #1 and colored it with copics. I added twine and a star brad from my stash to finish it off.

Birds of a Feather

Happy June!

 

I made this card last night for a bird house/bird cage swap.  I’ve had this Taylored Expressions Birds of a Feather stamp set for years and never used it until this card.

 

I stamped the bird cage in SU Summer Starfruit and the bird in MFT Berrylicious.  The papers are from Pink Paislee Citrus Bliss.  I added several rhinestones to embellish the card but they didn’t photograph too well.

Hello Friend – RS#196 & Matchup with a Twist #2

Hello Friend – that is the theme of today’s card 🙂

 

I used Retrosketches #196 and for my Matchup – Taylored Expressions stamps, American Crafts paper and the twist: background dies.  I didn’t have any TE background dies that went well with my card so I pulled out an MFT Cover Up die.

 

2016 Card 2 - TE Lets Chat

 

The stamp set I used is called Let’s Chat and I used the coordinating die to cut out the telephone.  The telephone dial was punched out with a Creative Memories circle punch.  I used American Crafts Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic paper…not really a favorite of mine but hey I bought it, so I need to use it! That’s what I like about my matchup challenge. It’s forcing me away from my favorite go to items and to dig in my stash for other things.

Double Pocket Card

Tonight’s creation is a double pocket card. I joined a pocket card swap since I haven’t made one in ages. Instead of going with the fold I know, I decided to try something new. I found a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers for the double pocket card

  
I watercolored the teacup bouquet stamp from Taylored Expressions with my Zig Clean Color brushes since I haven’t used them in awhile. 

Here are the tags I put in the pockets~
