Crop & Create Fall 2022 – Taylored Expressions

Main class #3 taught by Taylor VanBruggen was a fun one. I’m not a fan of slimline cards, either full size or mini, so this was an interesting one for me. I really love the look of the finished cards, but I’m not sure if I’ll do them again in this particular card format – I need to play with them some more to maybe use them individually to create A2 card panels instead of creating the three slimline cardfronts at the same time.

Things I enjoyed:

  • I really love the design of this stencil set, and that it has a coordinating stamp that adds some detail to the leaves by stamping the mid-rib and veins.
  • Irrespective of not being a fan of mini slimline cards, I do love the idea of these stencils to create multiple cardfronts at once – in fact I may do more in the future but use them as ‘strips’ on an A2 card.
  • I really adore the colour scheme Taylor use for these cards. Not my usual choice as we don’t really celebrate ‘fall’ in Australia, but it’s one of my favourite seasons and I personally love the autumn leaf colours – it was a really great change from my normal blues and aquas that I like to create with, and I should do more of this.
