Taylored Expressions Release Day & Birthday Bash!!


good witch bad witch mojo102

I’m so excited for today!! It’s release day for all 4 new stamp sets at Taylored Expressions as well as the BIRTHDAY BASH on the Stamp a Sweet Impression blog!!

Today I have a project to show you using the 3rd Halloween set being released called Punchy Potions, illustrated by Nancy McKinney! The 4 large ‘punchy’ images are specially designed to coordinate with the Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Large Oval dies. There are also 4 small circle punchy images to coordinate you can punch with a 3/4" circle punch. I made a card using the Halloween Key Ingredients and this week’s Mojo Monday sketch 102, which was a stretch for me with all the elements but I like how it turned out. See the jelly bean filled potion bottle? Those are soda pop Jelly Bellies, which coordinated so nicely with the colors in the designer paper by Basic Grey! It’s Orange Crush, Grape Crush, 7up, Cream Soda, Root Beer and Dr Pepper! YUM! The potion bottles are so fun, and are part of the bundle Taylor is offering this month! I love that she comes up with these fun bundles full of savings for you!! Included in the bundle is some sticker paper you can stamp directly & color on, die cut & peel the backing off to fit perfectly on the potion bottle! EASY!

Here is a close up of the sparkle I achieved using my Copic atyou spica glitter pens I got in the TE store! She has set A and B and they are a great sale price and now I have a ton of colors!! I can’t help but use these pens on nearly every card I make! If you’d like to try them but can’t commit to the whole set of pens, I would suggest you get a clear pen to start with so you can see how much sparkle it adds to your project. You may or may not notice, but my ‘witch’ has a cute outfit on, in which she has a ‘belt’ and bling belt buckle! I drew on the belt with my pitch black glitter pen and added a square rhinestone for her belt buckle. I think it adds an element of complete fashion sense! I also put the same rhinestones on the acrylic button that comes in the Halloween key ingredients.
