Welcome to the second day of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions where we are peeking some samples from the October release of awesomeness from Taylored Expressions all of which will be available for purchase tomorrow (woohoo!!). Today I am featuring the stamp set: Very Merry - which is illustrated by the talented Nancy McKinney - and is full of images that make it easy to create the cutest mittens or socks and coordinates with the Very Merry Outlines dies and the Very Merry Scallops dies which all the images to be cut perfectly and then adhered to a scalloped mat - soooo cute! Check out these cute dies:
I love the cute little mittens in this set - so fun to have polk dots and stripes - and it makes for quick stamping because you can just ink, stamp and die cut! I thought to make a fun clothesline using the Project Pantry Merry & Bright - love the fun papers and card stock in this kit - makes it so easy and fun to make cards! I stamped the clothesline image and then "hung" it up with some Baker's Twine and then hung the mittens and sock with some clothespins. I cut the scallop mat with some Vellum and then added some glitter to the mittens and socks
On the inside of the card, I used the new word die: "Merry" and die cut it with some of the DP from the Project Pantry and then stamped the word Christmas from the Very Merry Stamp set. This set also has some cute solid dots - which I thought would be fun to stamp on the inside of the card in different colors. The "Merry" die will be sold WITH this stamp set!!! How AWESOME is that!! Its perfect or creating sentiments with the word Merry - like "eat, drink and be Merry", etc.
