Good Morning Everyone!!!
Today marks Day 2 of Sneak Peeks over at Taylored Expressions, where today the Baker's Dozen will be showing you another exciting development at Taylored Expressions:.... drum roll please!!..... Stamps A la Carte! Taylored Expressions will now be offering you a single serving of sweetness in the same top quality deeply etched pink rubber you love! For February we have 8 irresistible Whimsical Wishes Animals in Love! There is also a full sized sentiment stamp set that coordinates with all of these different animals and probably with other stamps that you might already have! The sentiments are perfect for Valentine's day - or any other occasion!
What that means - is that you can buy which ever of the 8 animals in love stamps that Taylor will be releasing on Friday - individually, a la carte - along with the sentiment stamp set that coordinates with all 8 animals in this set. Love that flexibility!
Today I will be showing off the cutest little elephants and owls in love :) This first card uses the elephant stamp set with the sentiment "Big Love":
Here is a closer peek - I LOVE all of these hearts coming out of the elephants - and love that you can color them in different colors or just monotone colors (I covered mine in a glaze) :
The second card that I made with these sweet elephants uses the fun bright colors of MME papers - it had a fun carnival feel and I loved adding some puffy heart embellishments to the center of the hearts:
Here is a closer peek at the hearts and the lacquered elephants :)
The second set of projects today involve the cutest little owls ever!!! I mean seriously - these owls have such a sweet feeling of love between them - love it! - and there are so many sentiments that you can mix and match with this set. I made this card using the owlies and then for the background tore some paper to resemble bark - I love the different possibilities with this sweet little set :)
I think my most favorite sentiment - is "Owl Always Love You" - these owls are sooo cute and they reminded me of my two cuties when they snuggle :) We had finished story time - where we all snuggle on the couch and when I went to get another story - I saw my two little wee ones snuggling with each other - so I had to quickly get a picture - its one of my favorite moments - and I LOVE how it goes with the two owlies snuggling up with each other.
I used the On the Grape Vine chipboard that Taylor has in her store to create this frame. I sponged the chipboard and then I doodled over the sponging with a gel pen and then added the elements in the center of it... I love how it turned out - and the best part was seeing their faces when I showed it to them this morning :))) I hope that they will always be close with each other - always take care of each other - I can't believe how big they are getting - makes me feel weepy!
I put it in a frame to hang up in our hallway and can't wait to make more - I love the verstatility of these stamp sets that they can be used with scrapbook pages, valentine's day or everyday kind of projects!
I can't wait to surf around to the Baker's Dozen blogs this morning to see all of these cute animals in love!!! These ladies are absolutely brilliant and fantastic!!! Check out the amazing creations that these amazing ladies have created!!!
