Taylored Expressions Second Chance New Release Inspiration

Hi Friends and Happy Tuesday! Taylored Expressions just released several 2022 Gift With Purchase + a few Card Kit Supplies for purchase in the store along with several new coordinating products! Today, I’m sharing projects using the Dutch Garden and One in a Melon Layering Stencil.

One in a Melon Layering Stencil

The One in a Melon Layering Stencil & Clear Stamp Combo is such a fun set (I even saw a few designers turn the melons into pizzas & tacos!) and the new coordinating dies have all the pieces to create watermelon die cut slices.

For the Mini Slim Card Design, I used the layering stencil to create the mini slim stitched rectangle background in Lollipop, Key Lime and Oreo. I stamped the Punny Sentiment in Lollipop Ink and die cut using the coordinating die along with a piece of hot pink fun foam for extra dimension and combined it with the black and white embossed “Have the Sweetest Birthday” from the Hello Summer Mini Strip Set. To finish the card, I stacked the watermelon panel to a Key Lime Petite Scallop Stacklet and Lollipop cardbase.

The background on the A2 Thanks a Melon Card, was stenciled in Poppy Seed Ink using the Wonky Dots Mini Slim Stencil (they look just like watermelon seeds) and the panel was cut down and adhered to a Lollipop card panel. The Watermelon Slices were die cut using the One in a Melon Dies in Sugar Cube cardstock that I ink blended using TE Bitty Blender Brushes in Fruit Punch, Lollipop and Key Lime Inks. Using two heights of 3D foam squares, I adhered the Watermelon Slices to the Sugar Cube+Key Lime+Lollipop Circle Stacklet Layers. The sentiment was stamped in VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. To finish the card, I added all the layers together and adhered Lollipop Tiny Diamonds to the Wonky Dots background for a little extra pop.

Dutch Garden Layering Stencil

The Dutch Garden Layering stencil is the perfect background to experiment with color that I had to create two card with two very different color combinations. I finished each card with a ”Thanks” and “Hello” Framed Script Die Cut in Fruit Punch & Lavender Glaze and a coordinating black and white heat embossed sentiment from the Hello Add On and Thanks Add On Mini Strip Sets.

For the first color combination, I used Blueberry (stems & leaves), Cherry Pop+Fruit Punch and Cookie Monster. I layered the Dutch Garden Background to Cookie Monster & Cherry Pop cardstock using the A2 Layering Stacklets.

For the second color combination, I used Tropical Punch (stems & leaves), Dried Fig+Macaron and Honey. I layered the Dutch Garden Background to Lavender Glaze & Dried Fig cardstock using the A2 Layering Stacklets.
