Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks - Day 2

Good Morning Everyone,

Its another day of sneak peeks over at Taylored Expressions and today the Baker's Dozen and I are featuring the stamp set: Sweet Indulgence that Taylor will be releasing tomorrow!!! I LOVE the name of this stamp set and every single image is all about indulging and pampering - and who doesn't need that!!! Taylor is also releasing Spa Ingredients to coordinate with this set - which has 5 different Prism cardstock colors (Intense Mint, Intense Pink, Frosted Kiwi, Razzleberry Light, Frosted Teal) with coordinating Designer Paper, ribbon and the cutest brads and embellishments!!! These stamps coordinate perfectly with the stamp set that we peeked yesterday's stamp set called Luxurious Labels.


Cuppie goes to the Beauty Salon:
For my first card - I had to make this one of Cuppie at the Beauty Salon!!! I started out using Mercy's sketch #46 - but it kinda started to become a whole other kind of sketch card :) LOVE this image and these fun colors and ribbon and hair dryer embellishments that come with the Spa Key Ingredients kit are beyond cute!

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Spa Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions
Ink: Rose Bud Memento
Stamps: Sweet Indulgence from Taylored Expressions
Accessories: Martha Lattice punch, spellbinders, liquid pearls, glitter, circle punches, dimensionals


Cuppie's Pep Talk:

The second card that I made had me giggling the whole time I was making it because it is just the cutest sentiment!!! Do you remember Stewart Smalley from SNL?? And his pep talks to the mirror for increasing his self-esteem??!! Well, look at Cuppie giving himself a pep talk in the mirror!!!! LOL!!! I adore this stamp and sentiment!!!!

After paper piecing cuppie - I colored that portion over with B00 andC3 copic markers for a blue- gray mirror look - I had fun adorning Cuppie's mirror with bling and the sentiment: "I;m good enough, I'm sweet enough and doggone it, people love me!" is just still giving me the giggles :)

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Spa Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions
Ink: Rose Bud Memento
Stamps: Sweet Indulgence from Taylored Expressions
Accessories: spellbinders, stickles, bling, liquid pearls, glitter, corner rounder, dimensionals


Cuppie's Bath Time Soak:
The last project that I made is a little mini gift set for pampering and the gable box contains some dead sea salts to add to the bath: (isn't Cuppie adorable soaking in the bath :) !!!)

Here is a closer look at the card using Taylor's sketch #89: I love these flowers that come with the Spa Ingredients kit - it adds just the perfect finishing touch:

and here is a closer look at another stamp from this set that can be punched out with a 1 and 3/4 circle punch: there are other smaller stamps that can then fit inside the circle!!! LOVE the versatility that this provides!!

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Spa Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions
Ink: Aquamarine from Memento
Stamps: Luxurious Labels stamp set and Sweet Indulgence from Taylored Expressions
Accessories: spellbinders, stickles, dew drops, liquid pearls, glitter, corner rounder, dimensionals

I had sooo much fun making all these fun cards and can't wait to give them to my friends and family!!! Its so nice to be able to make some pampering gifts and cards for them to let them know how much they mean to me :) AND speaking of pampering -- CHECK OUT what all is in this yummy bundle that Taylor is releasing tomorrow!!!

That's right - a Chenille Gel Neck Wrap - that you can keep for yourself while you craft away or of course can give as a gift set combo!!! LOVE it!!! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog - and make sure to check out all the indulgent and yummy cardmaking genius from the lovely ladies on the Baker's Dozen :)
