VIDEO | Taylored Expressions | 4 Cards feat. Triple Slim Celebrate Layering Stencils + Happy Hooray Sentiments

Taylored Expressions has released the next in the Triple Slim Layering Stencil Series and you're going to love it! If you're already a fan of the Create-in-Quads Layering Stencils, then you're sure to fall in love with this new addition. I'm thrilled to be introducing Triple Slim Celebrate Layering Stencil, the third of the Triple Slim series. These work exactly like the Create-in-Quads but result in three mini slim cards, as opposed to four A2 cards.

I'm sharing four cards in my video. They all feature the Triple Slim Celebrate Layering Stencil and coordinating Triple Slim Celebrate Candle Dies. Two of the cards feature a vertical design and two have a horizontal design. Also featured is new Happy Hooray stamp set with coordinating Happy Hooray Dies. I selected Cupcake, Cherry Pop, Candy Corn and Passion Fruit inks for my stencilling. The colours are perfect for fall birthday cards!

The Triple Slim Celebrate Layering Stencil features three designs -- confetti, balloons and candles. The first card features the paler of the two confetti panels shown in my video and I added details to both ends of the panel using the smallest of the Diagonal Stitch Rectangle Stacklets.

I heat embossed the sentiment using gold tinsel embossing powder on Passion Fruit cardstock and layered it on a Cupcake shadow to coordinate with the mini slim card base.

My second card, also in the vertical format, features the falling balloons and I absolutely love the way the inks overlap. I framed this panel using the second-largest of the Mini Slim Thin Frame Cutting Plate, cut from gold glitter cardstock.

To create the sentiment, I stamped it first with Passion Fruit ink on Sugar Cube cardstock, then stamped it a second time using watermark ink and heat embossing it with sparkle embossing powder. I added a second layer of the die cut sentiment for a bit of dimension and attached everything to a Passion Fruit card base.

I love all the design possibilities using these three stencils. The coordinating Triple Slim Celebrate Candle Dies and Triple Slim Celebrate Balloons Dies can also be used to add varying amounts of dimension, whether it's by using liquid glue to stack layers of cardstock or by using glue dots and foam tape.

These next two cards feature two of the stencilled panels with a horizontal design. The different heights and patterns on these candles carries the eye across the whole length of this mini slim card and I love that you can use the coordinating Triple Slim Celebrate Candle Dies for even more options.

I kept this card simple and white heat embossed the sentiment on Cupcake cardstock and added gold pearls to some of the flames. The panel was added to a Candy Corn card base.

This final card features the darker of the two confetti panels and the second of the candle panel, die cut with the coordinating Triple Slim Celebrate Candle Dies. I layered the candles two stacks high, then glued them directly on to the panel.

As with my second card, I stamped this sentiment first with Passion Fruit ink on Sugar Cube cardstock, then a second time using watermark ink and heat embossing it with sparkle embossing powder. I added a gold glitter shadow, then attached the panel to a Cherry Pop card base.

I hope you enjoyed all of these ideas for the Triple Slim Celebrate Layering Stencil, coordinating Triple Slim Celebrate Candle DiesHappy Hooray sentiments and coordinating Happy Hooray Dies.

Thanks so much for watching!
