Taylored Expressions March Sneak Peek: From My Window and Vintage Dreamer


Welcome to the first day of sneak peeks here at Taylored Expressions!!  We have some exciting new products to show you over the next few days, so stay tuned!  Today I am featuring the set From My WindowFrom My Window is a set of 14 that consists of "window scenes" and coordinating sentiments.  There is a coordinating Arched Window Die that is sold separately. 

For my project, I created a "wall" of a house on my card.  The papers are from the Family Ties Collection from Pebbles.  I used the patterned paper to create wallpaper and then scored the white cardstock on bottom to look like wainscoting.  The window was created with the Arched Window Die.  I added a piece of transparency to the window.  The scene was colored with Copic markers.  I used one of the negative pieces from the window to create the picture frame on the wall.  I added a small piece of patterned paper and used a brad and some hemp to "hang" it on the wall.



My second project is one I created when Vintage Dreamer was a Key Ingredients Subscriber Exclusive.   I stamped the box with the flourish image from Vintage Dreamer before assembling it.  To see how I created this box, you can view this blog post.   

And here is another previous project using the Vintage Dreamer set.  Vintage Dreamer is a beautiful set of 13 perfect for vintage cards.  I'll have a new project using this set later in the week!  ;)
