Iron Craft Season 2 Episode 19

Hey folks!

Isn’t time just flying by? Its only 2 episodes to the FINALE now! And this episode is one of them!! But you’ll LOVE my guest today!



We used Taylored Expressions stamp set and dies ofcourse! The one we used is really special because its Taylor’s favorite set and hydrangeas were her wedding bouquet!

The set is called Forever in Bloom and the co-ordinating dies are called Hydrangea Blooms.



Here is what we created! My card on the left and Taylor’s on the right.



Today Taylor is sponsoring an awesome giveaway! One lucky winner gets a $25 gift certificate to the TE store!!

To win, just leave a comment here answering Taylor’s question and I’ll pick a lucky winner for the giveaway! Here is the question for you!

What do you think is missing from your stamp collection?

Thanks for watching the episode folks! I’ll be back with more next week!


  1. Kailash

    Both gorgeous cards using that lovely flower image!
    A great question, I realized I don’t have any scene builder stamps in my collection:-)


  2. sharrilou

    My first thought is not much. Lol. I’m missing sentiment stamps, they just aren’t as much fun to buy. But, these hydrangea stamps would-be a great addition go my collection.


  3. Sherry Hammond

    I am missing sympathy stamps, wording, etc. it’s hard to find good stamps for this sad subject. Glad to know how Taylored Expressions began as I have enjoyed how well those stamps stamp.


  4. BarbGhig

    Your cards are just beautiful, ladies! What a lovely stamp and die set!
    I really need to get more ‘Sympathy’ sentiments for my collection. Thanks so much for another great interview! Have a wonderful week!


  5. Eileen L.

    Great video. Nice to meet you Taylor very enjoyable interview. Loved both of your cards very much. I would also enjoy some scene builder stamps which I dont have in my minimal collection.


  6. Mary-Anne V.

    Such a fun video…beautiful cards. I loved the use of vellum for the vase on Taylor’s card. I feel out of my stash I am missing sentiments that can be carried from the front to the inside of the card and also more masculine images.


  7. Maureen Hayes

    What a great episode! Taylor is so much fun, and of course Chai I always love you! As far as what is missing from my stamp collection, it is sentiments! I always buy images I love and then forget to buy the appropriate sentiment I need to go with the occasion! Thanks so much for the interview as well as the chance to win!


  8. karenladd

    Wow, these hydrangea stamps and dies are wonderful! Love how you can get such a variety of looks from the same stamp set! As to what I am missing in my stamp collection, that would be humorous sayings. I have quite a few of the usual, but most of my family and friends like funny cards and I am sorely in need of those!


  9. Lynda

    I am missing background stamps. I want to buy only clear stamps anymore. Background stamps are never clear. Consequently, I have none! why can’t they be clear?


  10. andrenesmith

    Great interview and beautiful cards! I am so lucky that I have such a large collection of stamps but I would like sets like the hydrangea (bouquets not single flowers), reverse background stamps and build a scene sets.


  11. KatieP

    Although I cannot purchase anything right now, when I am able, I am sure there are many things that My Favorite Things and/or Amy Rysavy(you need to interview her!!) or Jennifer Mcguire(Also would be a great interview!!) have demoed. I would like some more of the background type stamps. Thanks for these interviews Chaitali.


  12. Denise Bryant

    Missing from my stamp collection… well, besides the tree stamp that I am searching for and can’t find, would be sentiment stamps. Especially ones for the inside of the cards.


  13. mysweet6

    I have boxes and boxes of stamps, yet, whenever I am looking for an anniversary stamp, I can hardly find one! So many sets have Happy Birthday, I would like more that include Happy Anniverary, plus some verses for anniversaries as well.


  14. shartl

    I’m sure my hubby would say that I’m not missing any stamps from my collection, but I need more birthday stamps! Seems like most manufacturers only offer cakes, cupcakes and balloons…and I’m always looking for something a little different!


  15. Cynthia Berquist

    Ladies, your cards always inspire me! My stamping addiction or better known as collection is missing sincere sentiments beyond just a simple Happy Birthday, Would love to find phrases for inside and outside for all occasions.


  16. Shona Chambers

    Where do I start!! I have a very small ‘well used’ collection. I need an alphabet set, background stamps, more graphic stamps and more sentiments. Let’s just say my birthday and xmas list for the next 10 years is very full!!


  17. Vicki Smith

    It was very nice to meet Taylor and hear how she started paper crafting. I’ve recently purchased a lot of clear stamps so I’m having a hard time coming up with an answer but I think I’m lacking in Christmas greetings and stamps. There are some beautiful ones I’ve seen lately.


  18. Joan

    Would love to see more realistic open style stamps suitable for watercoloring or Copic coloring – not so whimsical or cartoonish. Thanks for the interview, they are always interesting and informative!


  19. Laurie

    I’m currently trying to find stamps that are good for making cards for men. That and “sympathy” were the first thoughts I had when I heard the question. Great interview. Love your video series.


  20. Vithya

    Nice to know about Taylor. Taylored Expressions is new to me, and thank you Chaitali for introducing me to an awesome company and crafter.

    Beautiful cards by both of you!

    I don’t have a lot of stamps, so I miss(rather want) a lot of standard ones.

    But the one I want most is a good outlined floral image suitable for coloring.


  21. Kristen V

    I love the stamp and die set you both used to create a card with. I’ll have to say that’s what is missing and I would love to add them to my collection. The images are beautiful and I love florals.


  22. Connie G

    I can’t wait to add some skyline images and dies to my stamp collection. I have not even one!!! Great interview with Taylor. Fun getting to know her a bit more.


  23. c

    Taylor’s effervescent personality is infectious; a smile on my face from beginning to end! She’s funny, creative, and so ‘real’…and I love hearing that she loves cupcakes, donuts and candy! Sweet! You, as always, Chaitali, are a top-notch hostess! The photo of Taylor with the mustache..brilliant! My collection is missing a lot, even though I have a lot! I’d like background stamps, as well as mat dies that cut in more increments than those I have now…those ‘inbetween’ sizes. Thank you both for a most delightful, engaging interview!


  24. Pat McCleary

    Thanks so much, Chaitali, for a terrific interview with Taylor. Hers is the very first on line store I purchased stamp sets from & I’m still using them. Both of your cards are lovely too. My missing pieces are backgrounds & balloons. I wonder why I have none. Thanks again for this fun episode & a chance to win.


  25. irene G.

    I love hydrangeas! Both are beautiful cards.

    I have so many stamp sets, I’m not really sure there’s much that IS missing. lol Probably more people stamps. I’m nervous about coloring skin, so I tend to stay away from people. Also extended sentiments — longer quotes that can be used as the focal points.


  26. Teresa

    Great video! Love Taylored Expression stamps/dies. My stamp collection is missing sentiments that have something for the outside of the card and inside the card.


  27. Amy

    One thing for women of my age, 60ish, (come on it’s the new 40’s!!) working and crafting. Something more simple and spare and elegant.
