Its Release day over at Taylored Expressions - and today Taylor is releasing three new stamp sets, 2 Project Pantry Kits, 4 A La Carte stamps & coordinating sentiments featuring Destination Cuppie designed by Jessie Oleson and a beautiful big background stamp: the stitched plaid background stamp set. That's a whole lot of yumminess to get into the crafting groove!
If you have been hopping around with us this week, you might have already seen some of the A La Carte images of Cuppie visiting various cities in the US - and I am so excited to show you the Destination New York Cuppie and the Destination San Francisco Cuppie stamps and coordinating sentiments! Cuppie is already so cute - but a Cuppie who travels also?! That is beyond cute!!!!! For the Destination New York Cuppie - I immediately thought to make a card full of bling and and with a black and white theme - somehow it feels very city-esque to me :) I tried to keep it clean and simple - really, I tried and can you believe that I used no liquid pearls in this project (kinda stunned myself!)
I love this image of cute little Cuppie eating a hotdog - soo cute! And check out this Cuppie by the Golden Gate Bridge and this sweet sentiment from the Destination San Francisco Cuppie stamp set: It looks just like a postcard:
I adorned the side with these super cute scalloped edged ribbons from Taylored Expressions and then added a little button embellishment on the top. Man, I wish I could travel coast to coast like Cuppie! I can see so many amazing projects created with all 4 Destination Cuppie stamps - can't wait to stamp more!
But wait - there is more :) Today, Taylor is also releasing this beautiful stamp set called In The Park designed by the amazing Nancy McKinny and there is an amazing Summertime Project Pantry Kit that you will DROOOOL over (I promise!!!!!). As soon as I saw these amazing stamps - I knew that I wanted to create a scene and wanted to create something for my children. I love making little projects for them - and I wanted to make something for their room. So I created a little scene using a small shadow box frame. I LOVE the sentiment: "Imagination is the highest kite one can fly." I covered the shadow box with the papers - I created some rolling hills from the DP and the coordinating green cardstock, edged it with some inks and then liquid pearled it :) I covered the top portion with the gorgeous yellow paper and stamped the trees on the hills. I stamped the tree image twice onto some Choice Snow white Cardstock and then colored it and cut it out the leaves and tree trunks onto the stamped images:
I paper pieced one of the kites and added some bling to them and then tied a bow to the middle (love that its a shadow box so that the box won't get squished!). I also cut out the stamped bicycle and bench images (let me tell you my scissors are tired!) and adhered them to the hills. Here is a closer picture of the sentiment and I added a little bling to the bike:
Here is the picture of the scrapbook page that I framed and have sitting on the bookshelf in my children's room.
The BEST part of making this was that as soon as my son saw this, he wanted to know if we could put it in their room - yay! mission accomplished - they like it!! I hope that their imagination always leads them to amazing journeys!!!
