Today's Featured Card is . . .

Sundry Sentiments ... a new Taylored Expressions sentiment set!


I don't know if you know this about me but my degree is in computer science. My first job out of school was as a Computer Graphic Artist for General Motors in Michigan. During that job I learned to love fonts. Like I have an obsession with them 😬!!! Why am I telling you this? Because I am IN LOVE with the Sundry Sentiments font! It is by far my favoritest font that TE has come out with ... just sayin'. So be prepared as I'm sure you're going to see it A LOT on my projects 💕 and to get you started, here are a couple of cards I created to show off that gorgeous font!



I don't know if it's the trees in bloom and the Spring flowers popping up out of the ground here in Southwestern Utah, but I'm drawn to Springy colors right now so grabbed Spearmint and Mint Julep inks and card stock to make these 2 fun and whimsical cards.


On the card on the Left I used the Flower Fields background stamp that was released this past February with the Easter products. I lightly swiped/rubbed my Mint Julep ink pad over the stamp to create a striation effect (see photo below). Using this technique creates darker streaks of ink in some areas which gives the card lots of visual interest.

I wanted something to bring the eye in towards the sentiments so for that curved piece I did direct to paper with Mint Julep ink onto a scrap piece of card stock then rubbed VersaMark ink over that, covered it with clear embossing powder then heat embossed it. Once it was completely cooled I used the Build a Scene - Rolling Hills dies to cut just the right curved piece to compliment my two sentiments. (In this photo I'm placing things and making plans ... nothing is tacked down yet.)

And once again I'm staring at my card-in-process and it still needs something so after some contemplation and playing with flowers and butterflies, I opted for butterflies!

I actually ended up making 2 butterfly panels using the Taylored Expressions Butterflies background stamp and stencil combo set. These colors were SO pretty together that I decided to make 2 cards while I had everything out. And with a little splatter and cutting some frames, I assembled these two beauties using that new Sundry Sentiments set.


Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you grab some of your favorite inks and stamps and dies and make something beautiful today! Feel free to tag me on your projects in the Fans of TE Facebook Group. I'd love to support you and see your creations!


xoxo, Deby 💕
