VIDEO | Taylored Expressions | With All My Art Cardmaking Kit

It's the last Tuesday of the month and Taylored Expressions has a new cardmaking kit! Ever since I started cardmaking, I've been obsessed with paint swooshes and brush strokes so I was delighted when I saw the adorable With All My Art Cardmaking Kit! Not only are there both stamped and stencil strokes and splotches, there are layering dies for two sizes of cute paint brushes!

As you'll see in my video, I made four cards (thankfully, ha) but almost only had three and still could've made five. LOL It's impossible to stop once you start playing with all the kit ingredients. Both simple and busy card designs look amazing with these products.

The colour palette featured in this video include Rose Water, Watermelon, Mint Julep and Cilantro. I also featured basics such as Sugar CubeButtercream FrostingToffee, Black Licorice and Silver Foil. I love this fresh colour combination for spring! 

The first two cards are in the A2 size and feature the Splash of Color stamp set, as well as details from the Abstract Accents Stencil & Clear Combo, which was part of the original In the Abstract Cardmaking Kit and now available for purchase individually. The first card was framed with the A2 Thin Frame Cutting Plate in Black Licorice and Silver Foil.

The second card also features the Rays Pierce & Cut Plate, which I used to add even more detail to the stamped panel, as well as highlight the marvellous sentiment. All of the sentiments in this video are from the With All My Art stamp set and were white heat embossed on Black Licorice cardstock. The coordinating With All My Art Dies are sold separately and I love how closely the dies cut around the letters so they don't cover any of the backgrounds. 

The other two cards are in the horizontal mini slim orientation and they feature the Paint the Town paint brush dies. These dies feature two paint brushes and four layers for each size. I love all the details in those brushes, including that little hole to hang the brushes and the metal pieces that hold the bristles to the handle. They're super cute and you'll love assembling them!

My third card features the Bold Brushstrokes Layering Stencil. This two-part stencil is meant to create and cover an entire A2 card but I customized the strokes for my mini slim layout. After ink blending the strokes, I cut out the centre of the panel using the Stitched Mini Slim Stacklets and added a cute scalloped edge cut from the Petite Scallop Mini Slim Stacklets.

After botching what would've been the fourth card in my video, I decided to create this bolder design and I really love it, especially the two-colour base panel in Mint Julep and Cilantro which coordinates with the singular Mint Julep and Cilantro brushes.

With All My Art will not be restocked so grab this adorable kit while supplies last. Thanks so much for watching and, if you're inspired, please shop my affiliate links below!
