We’ve got a fun week going on at the Therm O Web blog. Our friends at Taylored Expressions have joined up with us to bring you a week filled with project ideas, mixing Taylor’s fabulous stamps and dies with Therm O Web’s line up of adhesives and deco foils. Both blogs are hopping with amazing projects to check out every day, and we have some wonderful prize giveaways that you won’t want to miss, too.
I received two fabulous Taylored Expressions sets to play with, and made two cards that are very different in style. Today I wanted to share the first here with you, a mixed-media, shabby sweet thank you card made with Taylor’s beautiful Lavender Bouquet set.
I have a soft spot for lavender. My friend, Paige’s, yard is bursting with lavender in full bloom right now, and it is such a treat to visit. I love the simple elegance of the blooms, but even more, I am crazy for the scent and keep a bottle of lavender oil on me at all times. So no surprise that I couldn’t resist this sweet lavender bouquet, right?
I thought the rustic country feel of the basket would work well with touches of my favorite shabby style. So I added in a bit of natural kraft, twine, and messy paint, along with more elegant accents of gold. Gold sequins from 28 Lilac Lane. Gold deco tape from Tim Holtz. And of course, gold Deco Foil from Therm O Web, applied in my favorite grungy, distressed finish.
The new Deco Foil Adhesive Pen makes it so easy to apply deco foil to almost any surface. I’ve got a full tutorial up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.
Be sure to pop by the Taylored Expressions blog to see how their amazing designers are using Therm O Web’s adhesives and line up of deco foils, too. And get entered to win one of two amazing prize package giveaways, one on each blog, while you are there. Good luck, everyone!
And before I go, I wanted to send a huge birthday shout out to my sweet Momma today!
I love you, Mom! Hope you have an amazing day!
