ReLEASE DAY -at Taylored Expressions!!!!!!! and Happy World Card Making Day!!!!!

Good Morning Everyone!!!

I am SO excited that it is release day over at Taylored Expressions and today the Baker's Dozen and I are bringing you a whole lot of yumminess from sneak peeks to all the ways that Taylored Expressions is celebrating World Card Making Day !!! So first things first - how about some sneak peeks? Today we are showing sneak peeks from the last of three stamp sets that Taylor is releasing today called: Holiday Wonder - and I seriously LOVE this set (I know I say that about every set - but seriously - this stamp set is SO cute!!!). I ADORE all the sweet images in this set and it coordinates perfectly with the Christmas Key Ingredients cardstock and DP and embellies that Taylor has put together!

This first card uses the seriously awesome designer paper from the Christmas Key Ingredients - and I LOVE LOVE LOVE pink for Christmas and holiday cards - somehow - its just so sweet and jolly all at the same time! I cut out the wave part of the designer paper as kind of hill and then stamped these super cute trees, copically colored them, and then popped with foam tape from Taylored Expressions. And my fave part was stamping the snowflakes in Brilliance silver. I ADORE the glittery ribbon and snowflake chipboard (which is smooched with Smooch :) and then blinged up :) - seriously the Christmas Key Ingredients and Very Merry Christmas Bundle that Taylor has is amazing-ly FILLED with amazing holiday YUMMINESS!!! (seriously so yummy - that i HAVE to write in CAPS!!! lol!)

Card Ingredients Details:
Paper: Christmas Key Ingredients
Ink: Rose Red from SU! and Brilliance silver
Stamps: Holiday Wonder from Taylored Expressions
Accessories: Everything is from Taylored Expressions: snowflake chipboard, smooch, corner chomper, foam tape, adhesive and of course my favorite: liquid pearls (white opal).

This second card is from the same set and I seriously LOVE this sweet house in the stamp set - it is so sweet and so fun to color. I wanted to create a little holiday scene and so stamped everything in the card and then cut everything out and moved it around to create a little scene. The background paper is a sheeny and opalescent paper that kind of shimmers and I stamped this super cute Santa and the Reindeer flying over the house and then blinged up Santa's path :)

Card Ingredients Details:
Paper: Making Memories, white cardstock from stash
Ink: Bahama Blue from Memento
Stamps: Holiday Wonder from Taylored Expressions
Accessories: copics, foam tape/adhesive from Taylored Expressions, wave cutter from Creative Memories, glitter from Martha, snowflake chipboard from Taylored Expression
