Snarky New Year Blog Hop ft. Taylored Expressions!

Hello, friends and welcome back to our monthly blog hop for Scrap N Stamp Canada! This month we have a fun one..snarky/sarcastic cards!

I've used a bunch of Taylored Expressions goodies on my project. This brand has some of the best (and cutest) stamps and dies out my humble opinion:).

When creating a card with a snarky or sarcastic sentiment, I always like to pair it with super cute critter images or florals. I think this combination works well and adds to the humour of the card.

I white heat embossed the Rainbow Waves Background onto a piece of white cardstock. I made my own stencil by using a Stencil material I found on Amazon along with a heart die set.  Taylored Expressions has a new, amazing line of masking stencils like the Oval Set but I really wanted a heart shape!

I lined up my homemade stencil over the heat embossed panel and using sponge daubers, I added a rainbow of colours. I used:  Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks. After pulling off the stencil, it revealed this gorgeous heart rainbow!!

The super cute pegasus (I think) image is also from a stamp and die set from Taylored Expressions called Dreamer. I coloured that sweet thing with Copic markers.

I used one of the awesome sentiments from the TE stamp set called Shenanigans. This little set has some of the best sarcastic sentiments in it!! This particular sentiment is one stamp but I was easily able to trim it into small strips. It was a toss up on white on black or black on white but this won out in the end!

I trimmed the inked panel down before foam mounting the critter and the sentiment strips. I used a grey card base and added some Nuvo Glitter Pen and Crystal Glaze to portions of the pegasus!

I had so much fun with this card that I made a VIDEO!!  You can watch it HERE!!
