Taylored Expressions - Thinking of You! 8-)

Hi all! And a Very Happy Thursday to you! 8-) Hope you all had a Wonderful week so far! 8-) Well, today I'm back with a quick post, to share my latest Taylored Expressions creation inspired by TE's Awesome New Simply Stamped - Zinnias Stamp set, TE's New Simpy Stamped - Zinnias Coordinating Dies, TE's  previously released Fame in Frame Cutting Plate & TE's Harlequin Embossing Folder as well, to create this Sweet Thinking of You card that can be used for Soooo many Just Because, Encouragement type of occasions...8-)
I had a lot of fun stamping these Sweet Zinnias! I just love how these stamps layered so perfectly for such Wonderful shading and dimension, not to mention I definitely got to put my Stamp-a-ma-jig to good use with them too! 8-)  My Simply Stamped - Zinnias were stamped with  Clorox Lilac, Heliotrope & Violet inks and for their stems I Chose Clorobox Lettuce and Lime inks.   I cut them out with the help of TE's New Simply Stamped - Zinnias Coordinating Dies and Adhered them to my Focal Panel BG adding a bit of foam tape to my pretty Zinnias for some fun dimension...8-)
My Focal Panel BG was created with the help of TE's previously released Harlequin EF and Frame in Frame Cutting Plate as well.  Next I just popped up the whole ensemble onto my card base with a bit more foam tape & my Mats and BG Layers were created with TE's Rainbow Brights Matched Kit. To finish it all Up, I stamped TE's Many Minis - Occasions sentiment onto a TE Mini Tags Die cut and topped it all off with a cute little bow created from some skinny lavender ribbon I found in my stash... 8-)

Here are the items I used for my project today...

Hope you all have a Fantastic day & Thanks so much for stopping in! 8-)
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Oh, such pretty color on those Zinnias! Love all the purple on this. So bright and happy and sure to give smiles to whoever receives it. I sure do love receiving hand stamped cards and I know you're very good about sending them. These layered kind of stamps are so fun to work with. My Stamp-a-Ma-Jig is my most used and loved tool.

  2. This is really pretty Shannon. I didn't know TE had anything other than cutesy stamps. Thanks for sharing. Would love to see more stuff like this from them.


I truly Love receiving your comments, they always make me smile... Thanks so much for taking the time to visit today... 8-)
