If you are not familiar with Taylored Expressions stamps, they are made of deeply etched cling-mount rubber that you can place on an acrylic block. All of the full size and petite stamps come on a full color image panel, which is 3-hole punched so the stamps can be stored easily in a TE Mini Binder Box. Each Mini Binder Box fits up to 4 full-sized stamp sets.
First up for me is this darling set of 25 stamps called In the Clouds, illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line.
Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copic Markers. The banner is also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. Did you notice the blue background? All of those embossed clouds were made with TE's new Clouds Impression Plate, which is double sided to allow for the clouds to be arrange for both a horizontal card and a vertical card - it's 2 impression images for the price of one! I used the vertical side of the impression plate for my background. Another fun Taylored Die that goes perfectly with In the Clouds is the new Cloud Border Die - it's long enough to run the entire length of a standard A2 card and you can cut out multiple die cuts and layer them up! I chose to use the Cloud Border Die as a standard border and just added it underneath my cardstock layer. I added the Medium Scallop Border Die at the bottom, which really continues that puffy cloud look. You may recognize the little clouds on the image panel too - they are made with the Cloud Duo Die. I added some Baker's Twine around the center of the card for a little extra punch and the layout is MOJO195.
In the Clouds is a perfect companion set to the It's a Banner Day 1 & It's a Banner Day 3 sets as well as the Cloudy Days background stamp. Imagine the possiblities!
Up next is a new delightful set of 17 images illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink line.
Warm Red, Yellow Ochre, Lime Pastel, and Pumpkin Spice. Life is a Circus also has a coording Stars Die set that you can layer and arrange in endless ways! I added more Baker's Twine and Crystal Twinkles for accent and the layout is Deconstructed Sketch 7.
Here are the Taylored Dies I used on today's projects:
