  • Hi Everyone!
Welcome to release week from Taylored Expressions! Today, I am so excited to sneak peeks from some super cute stamp sets that Taylor is going to be releasing on this Thursday! This first card is from the Fruity Friends stamp set that was concepted by our very own Wanda Guess- I love all the sentiments in this set - especially the one: "Thanks from the whole bunch" and so I made a little fruit bowl then stamped the different fruits, colored them with copics and arranged them into the bowl. I love all these sweet fruit faces :

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Fruity Friends from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black
Paper: scrap pieces from MME and sheet of cork from Taylored Expressions
Accessories: Circle Nesties, ribbon from May Arts, EK success scallop punch, liquid pearls, copics, glaze, sponger and dimensionals


The second card I made uses the stamp set: Make It Amazing illustrated by Nancy McKinny- it is such an elegant stamp set - and there are so many different kinds of stamp sets that you can make with this set - from Mother's Day cards to inspiring card - and so many images and combinations! I used the London Market Project Pantry for all the papers and cardstock in this card and used these three new Taylored Expressions dies to create the card:



 I love the new Frame it Up 3 die - so elegant - I stamped them twice and created two window panels with this frame - one for the butterfly and one for the sentiment. After stamping the butterfly, I die cut it out using the Elegant Butterflies dies that coordinate with this stamp set and then used one of the Fancy Buckles dies to layer the sentiment over (I LOVE these new Fancy buckles - how cute are they!!). I distressed the edges and then on the smaller panels, I tied some ribbon through the eyelets from the Project Pantry kit:


Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Make it Amazing from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Ink: London Fog, Rich Cocao, Angel Pink
Paper:London Market Project Pantry Kit from Taylored Expressions
Accessories: Frame it Up 3 die, Elegant Butterflies dies, Fancy Buckles dies from Taylored Expressions, dimensionals, liquid pearls, Photo corner punch and bling.


I can't wait to see what all the lovely ladies on the DT have created using these super cute stamp sets and dies!! Please hop on over with me and check them out!!!



Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Sankari
