Monogrammed Note Cards

Good Afternoon! If you haven't already noticed; I love Taylored Expressions...LOL!!! Not only am I a loyal customer, but I'm also a Key Ingredients Subscriber. If you are not familiar with Taylor's Key Ingredients Subscription, you can read all about it HERE. With that being said, I'm just now getting around to posting what I made with February's Key Ingredients. I thought I better post this now before my March Ingredients arrive this week and I start creating with those.

February's Key Ingredients featured the classic black and white color combo and Taylor's challenge for the month was to add a crisp pop of color into our black and white cards. I decided to create a set of 8 (2 of each color) monogrammed cards for the most important woman in my life; my Mom. Since I was mass producing, I decided to keep the layout very simple. I pulled out my JustRight Curlz Kit and stamped the monograms with Memento Tuxedo Black in. I punched them out and then layered them to a scalloped circle. I also decorated a Perfect Package Card Box to put the cards and envelopes in. I kept that pretty simple as well, so that my Mom can reuse it once the cards are gone.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Happy Heart Day

As you can see by today's card, I'm a little behind on posting...LOL!!! This is another Valentine's Day card I made using the Love Everywhere set and Valentine Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions. There's not much to the card; it was pretty simple and quick to make. The tree, hearts, and dog are all separate images from the Love Everywhere set and I stamped them on Choice Buttercream cardstock. Then, I stamped the heart image again, cut a few of them out, popped them up and added some Stardust Stickles.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #59

Well hello there and happy Tuesday! I hope everyone is having a good week so far. Today's card is one I made for Taylor's Dragonfly Card Drive. If you're not familiar with the card drive, you can check out all the details HERE. I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #59 for my layout and the November Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions.

The dragonfly stamp is from the Patterned Bugs set by Inkadinkado and is stamped in Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink. I cut the image out with my Curved Rectangle Nestabilities and added a couple of rhinestones to the center of the dragonfly. For the background, I used the smaller dragonfly stamp from the Patterned Bugs set, stamped the image numerous times with Versamark, and embossed the images with clear embossing powder. The "With Sympathy" sentiment is from the Warmest Regards set by SU!.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful day!
