Cards for Fall
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2015
Hello Members and Friends. While fall comes slowly to the desert, making fall-themed cards helps me believe cooler weather will soon arrive. Taylored Expressions has some darling new stamps and dies for fall and here are some cards featuring these new sets. To see the complete die and stamp sets I used with prices, click over to the What’s New Page, categories A What’s New and Fall.
Gobble – Taylored Expressions stamp and die set If Turkeys Could Talk; TE dies Fine Feathers and Grass Border; design inspired by Shelly Mercado
The "If Turkeys" stamp/die set features a turkey stamp with matching die and 9 different faces!! Plus it has lots of cute sayings for the sign and sentiments for your cards.
Not a Turkey – Taylored Expressions stamp and die set If Turkeys Could Talk; TE dies Stitched Clouds, Rolling Hills and Little Bits die Leaves; Memory Box dies Puffy Clouds and Twiggy Tree; design inspired by Taylor VanBruggen
Notice the different face and wording on the sign versus the card above. Cute! I used the stitched clouds die for hills -- stretch your dies!
I love this new door die and the companion sets that work with it. You can make cards with doors for any season, welcome home, welcome to the neighborhood and many other occassions like Happy Thanksgiving. The Door to Door Decor set includes a solid wreath that can be the foundation for leaves (see card above left) or the included twiggy wreath (see card above right). Cut the steps and mount the urns with topiaries to complete the scene. The turkey is all decked out in fall colors and ready to welcome guests.
Door with Leaf Wreath – Taylored Expressions dies Door to Door, Door to Door Décor and Little Bits Leaves; TE embossing folder Bead Board; TE stamp set Welcome Home; design inspired by Courtney Kelly
Door with Turkey – Taylored Expressions dies Door to Door, Door to Door Décor and Little Bits Leaves and Turkey; TE embossing folder Brick; TE stamp set If Turkeys Could Talk; design inspired by Charmaine Ikach
Autumn Border – Memory Box dies Autumn Border and Stitched Pumpkins; Taylored Expressions Little Bits die Leaves; TE stamp set If Turkeys Could Talk (sentiment)
For this card I cut the Autumn Border and Stitched Pumpkin then inked them in fall colors (Memento Inks). A few sequins and an appropriate sentiment complete the card.
Lots of new things in stock so please stop in soon and shop!
