Taylored Expressions - Day One of Sneak Peeks!!!

Good Morning Everyone, 

I am so excited to be able to show you some sneak peeks from the newest release at Taylored Expressions! The sets being released this month are so perfect for some important occaisions. These projects are made with the set called Doctor's orders. I love this set for the versatility that it offers in making cards/projects for get well soon cards and these images are sooo perfect for children too!

I didn't have a chance to play along with this sketch from Taylor's Friday sketch Challenge 55 - so I thought I would use it for this card. (You can find all of Taylor's sketch challenges from the past at this link). This is one of my favorite images from this stamp set (I say that about each image!lol!) and its of Cuppie in bed with a little thermostat. How cute is that - that Cuppie is in bed with his fluffed up pillows catching up on some reading? Love this cute image!!!

I used the March Key Ingredients kit to make this card (the Key Ingredients kit comes with DP and coordinating cardstock, ribbon and accessories they are really such an easy way to pull a card together :) I paper pieced the bed spread and pillows and then used dimensionals to pop the bed up. I am so excited to have some cards on hand that are get well cards - because I never have any when I need them. I love these cute cuppie images - its nice to be able to make some get well cards for kids from this set. 


. Here is another card that I made using another image and sentiment - I lOVE these too (see they ALL are my favorite :). As you guys know - I love working with bright cheery colors - and thought that they would work well together for a get well card. I simply adore this tissue box - I stamped it a few times on orange and pink and then paper pieced them - cut the top open to insert a little bit of actual tissue paper :) and then lined them up in a row... I also paper pieced the lozenges with the blue DP.

And then I thought - it might be fun to decorate a real tissue box and put these two together as  gift set - so I got a little extra tissue box and started to decorate it up:

I can't tell you how much fun I had making this little tissue box - isn't this little image of Dr. Cuppie sooo cute (wouldn't it be great if the Doctor insisted that eating more chocolate was the best thing to get you healthy again!) I paper pieced the cuppies and adhered them on a Spellbinders nestie set and decorated with some liquid pearls, faux stitching and buttons from Taylor's Bag O'Buttons. 

Here is a picture of the whole gift set:


Well, I totally had a blast making these - love these sweet images for get well cards - they would totally bring a smile to my face if I was under the weather :)
