Deco Foil Fun with Taylored Expressions & Therm O Web!!



Good Morning!!  This week, the Taylored Expressions Creative Team is teaming up with our friends at Therm O Web !  Today, Jean and I are sharing our projects (I have 3 for you!)  PLUS — we’ve got two amazing prizes up for grabs…read on for all the details!  Details on how to enter can also be found on the Taylored Expressions blog and the Therm O Web blog.

I have three projects to share with you today using the Therm O Web products!  I had so much fun creating, I just couldn't stop!!  This first card uses Deco Foil in Lime and Opal along with the Leafy Vine Cutting Plate from TE!!  


I used the DecoFoil Toner Sheets to die cut the sentiment, butterflies and leaves and then ran them through my laminator with the foil.  

SUPPLIES USED:



My next two projects go together simply because for the second, I used the "left over" piece from the first!  If you notice the dots on the black cardstock of this card, I used the Deco Foil Adhesive Pen to add the dots and then foiled them with black foil.  

I LOVE using the foils with cutting plates that are adhered across a window I've cut in the card.  It gives such a nice touch!

SUPPLIES USED:



This last card uses the left over piece from the previous project.  I put adhesive all over a piece of white cardstock and then used the foil from the previous card to get the "negative" image onto the card.  It ends up looking a little more distressed than the traditional way of foiling, but I like how it turned out!

SUPPLIES USED:



Be sure to come back every day this week for more inspiration and more chances to be entered into our prize drawing! We’ve got TWO prizes up for grabs this week. Our buddies at Therm O Web have got a $50 Gift Certificate to the TE Store to give away, so be sure to visit the Therm O Web Blog each day this week.

The second card I have to share uses the Love Everlasting set along with the Everlasting Heart Die set and the Copper Blush Sequin Mix.  I stamped the heart repeatedly with an ombre ink.  I think it gave the card  toile look.  The little hearts and the right edge of the card are foiled in Rose Gold Foil.  I added some sequins to give a little more sparkle.  Next on today's hop is Christyne!  Thanks for stopping by all week and Happy Shopping!!

Everything previewed this week will be available to order in the Verve online store on Friday, May 20.  If you've come from visiting Betty, you're in the right place!!

Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Everlasting Love stamp set, Everlasting Heart Die Set and the Copper Blush Sequn Mix.  I die cut the heart out of some pink cardstock and then stamped and embossed the coordinating image in white.  I added the little hearts and some Shine Bright Sequins.  The sentiment was stamped before dry embossing the background.  Next on today's hop is Christyne.

Verve May Spotlight Hops - Day 1


Welcome to Verve's May Spotlight Hops! A new release is just around the corner and for the next couple of days we'll be shining our creative spotlights on the new Verve sets and dies releasing this Friday, May 20.  If you've come from visiting Betty, you're in the right place!!

Today we're sharing our first projects featuring the Beautiful Things stamp set, Beautiful Flowers Die Set and the Stitched Pennants Die Set.  I just LOVE the Beautiful Things stamp set and Beautiful Flowers Die Set and have loved creating with them.  For my card, I stamped and embossed the flowers in white onto blue cardstock and then die cut them.  I colored the centers with Copic markers to darken the cardstock and give some dimension to the flowers.  "Beautiful" was die cut in gold along with some white foam behind it so that it would stand up.  Next on today's hop is Christyne.
