Hey, crafty friends! It’s Taylor here on the blog today and I’m excited to be joining you again to share another card I created using products from our new release that just launched yesterday! Did you have a chance to check out all of the new goodies?
If you haven’t done your shopping for this release you can click the graphic below to check out what’s new this month! The design team and I have been busy whipping up projects and I hope you find them inspiring!
Even though the release launched yesterday, we’ll continue sharing inspiration through the rest of this week! Here’s an ‘at-a-glance’ look at this release:
- The release includes 15 new products: red rubber stamp sets, a clear stamp set, a Cling & Clear combo, and several new dies!
- Everything is available at the TE webstore RIGHT NOW! Right now we are shipping orders on Mondays and Thursdays. We are working hard to get your orders out to you as soon as we can and keep our TE employees as safe as possible. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.
- Each day (Monday – Thursday) will feature a new how-to tip, technique, or process video.
Our Cling & Clear stamp sets include the best of both worlds with a large cling-mounted rubber background stamp and a small set of clear stamps designed to easily fill the outline of the background images with color. Simply stamp the images in a variety of ink colors for endless possibilities!
Here’s a closer look at the new products that I used in the video:
In addition to the Scribbled Rose background, I also used the Building Blocks – Her stamp with the coordinating Building Blocks die and our easy alignment squares. With one trip through the die cut machine, you’ll have 22 words that can be used to create a variety of personalized sentiments.
The background of the card has lots of depth and dimension, but it’s actually just one layer! I used both the positive and negative of the Oval Masking Stencil to create the oval rose pattern and the herringbone pattern around it.
I started by stamping the roses with Sea Salt ink (a very light grey) and then used the light grey outline as a guide to fill the images with color using the coordinating clear stamps. With my background still in the same spot in my MISTI, I stamped over the top of the colored flowers with Sugar Cube ink and the light grey ink underneath disappeared from view.
The two patterns needed to be set apart from each other so I created a frame by stacking two of our stitched oval stacklets together to die cut the frame from Mulled Wine cardstock. I wanted to personalize this card for my grandma in hopes that it will cheer her up during these tough times. I used the word ‘grandma’ from the Building Blocks – Her set cut with the coordinating die.
Here’s a bit more inspiration using the new release products from a few of our Creative Team members:
Gayatri Murali created this colorful pair of cards using the Scribbled Rose set, Building Blocks Her stamp, and Building Blocks die. She created Mother’s Day cards to celebrate a mother and another to celebrate a grandmother. I love how she stacked up the words on top of the main sentiment on each card! Embossing the words and sentiments in white on Oreo cardstock really makes them pop on the colorful backgrounds!
Big Blooms – Fuchsia is the newest addition to the Big Blooms collection. The pretty image fills up the majority of your card front and the large size makes it perfect to practice your coloring and shading with any medium!
Melody Rupple created a slimline card to showcase her colored fuchsias. I love how she has them coming down from the top and up from the bottom to fill all the space. She framed a sentiment from the Penned Pretty stamp set in the center of her card and finished it off with a sentiment from the Inside Scoop – For Her and a tone-on-tone fuchsia on the inside.
Jen Shults expertly watercolored the fuchsia with TE’s liquid watercolor! I love how the pretty pinks and purples really pop over the top of the teal watercolor backdrop!
That wraps up the inspiration for today, but there’s still one more day packed with inspiration tomorrow! Thanks so much for stopping by today and for all of your excitement over the new products for this release!
