Taylored Expressions "Field Notes 2 Kit" Continued

Hello, friends! Ever since I purchased the "Field Notes 2" kit from Taylored Expressions, I have had the desire to keep making cards! So, I decided to make a few birthday cards to replenish my stash.

For my first card, I used the Taylored Expressions Rectangle Masking Stencils to add blue distress ink behind the floral image (note that this kit came with a stencil mask for the flowers...brilliant!). It just so happened that the Stampin' Up "tulip border" embossing folder fit perfectly around the stenciled background!  The sentiment is from the Taylored Expressions Simple Strips Background stamp and matching die set. I watercolored the flowers using my Zig watercolor brushes.

For my second card, I used a few Taylored Expressions stencils together, including Oval Masking Stencils and Here Comes the Sun over the masking stencil of the flower image. The sentiment is again from the Simple Strips Background stamp and matching die set. I lucked out again, as the Darice oval embossing folder fit perfectly! The flowers were watercolored using distress inks.

My final card features the "Field Note 2" flowers masked and background inked and features a Taylored Expressions sentiment from the Handlettered Sentiments set. Such a simple one-layer card!

It's a shame that this kit is sold out, I do hope it comes back in stock soon. It is definitely one of my favorites!

Thank you for stopping by!
