Hi there! Taylored Expressions is hosting a blog hop today to showcase the new Crafter's Workshop templates now available at the Taylored Expressions store! I have a list of all the participating Baker's Dozen at the end of my post!
The Crafter's Workshop templates are so cool! My card showcases the new Star Shower Template.
Here are some details on how I made my cards. I started with my template, a sponge dauber and some pigment ink. I bought some Claudia Helmuth Sticky Back Canvas awhile back at my Local Scrap Store and have been itching to use it, so I thought I would give it a try with the template! Oh. My. Word......I am in love with the outcome! You can click on the picture to get a better view of the texture of the inked canvas! I simply taped the corners of my template to the canvas and sponged on the ink in circular motions with a sponge dauber until I got the coverage I desired. It looks so amazing....just like fabric! I used Sweet Blush and Spring Rain pigment ink (PTI).
I paired the canvas with one of my favorite Taylored Expressions sets, Beary Special, to make two simple baby cards! I stamped the bears in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored in with Copics, cut out with Square nesties and then layered on a Big Scallop Square Nestie. I then went back and paper pieced the patch, feet and ears with Bitty Box DP by PTI. The large embossed scallop is from EK Success. A little ribbon and I called it done!
All of the girls have used different templates, so be sure to stop by their blogs for more inspiration!
