Hey, crafty friends! Before we get started today, I want to remind you that tomorrow is the very last day to order your own personalized stamp from the Personalized Pop-Up Shop in the Taylored Expressions webstore.
You can choose from 4 Taylor-made designs and customize the stamp with your name, website, etc. A personalized stamp is perfect for making your handmade cards even more personal and special than they already are! They are a wonderful tool to have when you are mass-producing cards as you can load your personalized stamp into your Mini MISTI to quickly and easily add your mark to the back of your handmade cards.
Click below to visit the Personalized Pop-Up Shop and order your own personalized stamp today. You only have through tomorrow, February 3rd to order!
Now let’s take a look at some gorgeous notecard inspiration from TE Creative Team Member Kim Singdahlsen!
How pretty is this collection of cards that Kim created? Kim used the same formula that most of the other TE Creative Team members used to create her collection of notecards. Each card has the same layout and she switched out a few elements to create a variety of looks.
Kim used several different embossing folders with Sugar Cube cardstock for the backgrounds on her cards that feature the Simply Stamped – Wreath stamp set. I love how the different sentiments are stamped onto the Double-ended Flag Stacklets die cut and tucked into the wreath – so fun!
Kim created some coordinating envelopes using the Sweet A2 Envelopes set. She stamped the wreath once in an ink color that coordinates with the envelope and then stamped it again over the top of the colored ink with Sugar Cube. A Mini MISTI will be an essential tool for recreating this beautiful and subtle effect.
Finally, Kim used her personalized “handstamped by” stamp from the Personalized Pop-Up Shop to add her mark to the back of the cards. She used ink colors that coordinate with the colors on her cards!
Don’t forget that it’s “Soup”er Bowl weekend at Taylored Expressions! In honor of the 53rd edition of the big game, Taylored Expressions will donate 5.3% of sales now through Sunday, February 3rd to the Food Bank of Iowa.
