Good Morning Everyone!
Its been a busy week over here - my parents are visiting and every day seems like it is jammed packed with oodles of family outings, meal and fun :) And speaking of fun - today, half of the Baker's Dozen and myself are showing some samples using the brand new April Key Ingredients which features the yummiest paper from Cosmo Cricket: Material Girl (with a name like that, I had to get out my 80's music mix to make these cards :) If you aren't familliar with Taylor's Key Ingredients' you can read more about it here. The reason that I can't get enough of them is because everything is already coordinated for you (ribbons, embellishments, cardstock, etc.) and so you don't even have to think about finding and matching all of the coordinating accessories! This month Taylor has included coordinating buttons, super cute (I mean SUPER cute chipboard, coordinating cardstock, and an amazing variety of ribbon to get your mojo going!)
In this month's Key Ingredients challenge - we wanted to do something other than A2 cards - any other shape and to also use any kind of sewing in our cards! Well, as soon as I saw these papers and the sewing challenge, I decided to make an early Mother's Day gift for my dear MIL who is an amazing amazing amazing seamstress (Its the sweetest thing to see the kidlets wearing Grandmas' creations :) So I decided to use this circular tin can to hold some cards that she can give away to people.
Here is the gift card holder: the circular tin can with the sentiment: "You warm my heart" from the Year of Sweet Sentiments stamp set from Taylored Expressions.
Here is a picture of the tin opened (I created three circle cards (they are 4" circle cards and so will fit into an A2 size envelope).
One of my FAVORITE ingredients in this month's kit is the sewing/themed chipboard! From needles, to thread, to dress holding mannequins - the chipboard in this set is BEYOND cute! I decided to keep the layout the same using the different Designer Papers for each of the cards. Here is a picture of all the cards. I used a safetey pin chipboard on the tin holder, a dress holder mannequin chipboard piece, a spool of thread/needle chipboard piece and a hanger chipboard piece.
Here are some pictures of each card. This first card has a dress holder mannequinwith the yummiest ribbon - isn't that meausrement tape for ribbon SO cute?! Love it! I added the sentiment: "Thank You" from the CreativiTEA stamp set from Taylored Expressions.
Here us a picture of the second card: I colored this little hanger and used some thread to "hang" the sentiment Missing You (from the Let's Do Coffee stamp set from Taylored Expressions.) off of the hanger.
Here is the last card using a the chipboard spool of thread that comes with the Key Ingredients, around which I wound some embroidery thread and then I sewed a little bit and attached the sentiment: "You're Sew Sweet" from the Crafty Cuppie stamp set from Taylored Expressions.
I loved these papers and I love all variety of the ingredients in this kit that really make it fun and easy to create cards. I can't wait to give this to my MIL and I can't wait to see all of the beautiful and amazing creations that my fellow Baker's Dozen Design Team Members have sewn up! Hop along with me!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hope your day is sew sweet! (sorry, couldn't help it :)))
