Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peek Day 1




Hi Everyone!!
It's sneak peek time over at Taylored Expressions and we are featuring such a huge release of brand new stamp sets, dies and project pantries!! There are so many new sets that will get your holiday stamping started and so many amazing dies too!! Today through friday we are having sneak peeks and inspiration hops featuring all of the new products all of which will be available for purchase on Thursday, October 4th at 8 am PST. You'll find it all in the Fresh out of the Oven Department at the Taylored Expressions Store

My first project features the new stamp set Rejoice from the Lasting Impressions line from Taylored Expressions, which is a full set of 13 sentiments. This set is perfect for creating mass produced Christmas cards and works perfectly with all the dies and cutting plates introduced. 
I paired up my beautiful sentiment: "Wishing you peace & joy this holiday season" with the new Make a Snowflake die (6 snowflake dies included) and Snowflake border die. I wanted to keep the layout very simple and I love the look of cream and white mixed together. I started off with the Choice Buttercream card stock as my base and then cut the snowflakes from the Choice Snow White card stock

I added the snowflake along one side of the card and then on the other added some white ribbon I had from a few years ago (I found all kinds of stuff from I cleaned my room! LOL!) and added a single snowflake under the bow. I stamped the sentiment onto the Buttercream card stock and then die cut them out and after that popped them onto the card stock. I added a little glitter to the snowflakes and a little pearl to the center. It was fun to mass produced these cards - and really easy too!

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Rejoice from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Bahama Blue (Memento)
Accessories: white ribbon, corner chomper, Snowflake Border die, Make a Snowflake dies, dimensionals, pearls

The second project that I made uses the Best Nests stamp set, illustrated by the super awesome Nancy McKinney- featuring the cutest little birdhouses from all the different seasons and holidays! They are so cute with a touch of whimsy sweetness!! I made this card using the picket fence around the bird house using the papers from the September Key Ingredients Kit (I love this kit!). I also used the newly releasing Quatrefoil Cutting plate - that creates this super cool background to the card. I started by placing different colored card stock and then added the Quatrefoil die on top of it - love the look it created. I stamped the image and then cut it out using the new Label Stacklet dies - Such a great design and then I paper pieced the birdhouse and colored in the rest with copics. 

 I love this set because its perfect for seasonal holiday cards -  or a just because card. I love this sentiment - I do feel grateful for all of my friends and family and its such a sweet sentiment to be able to send out to a dear friend!

And I can't wait to see all the projects that the Baker's Design Team has created with all of these amazing sets - join me and check them out here:

 Join us as a fan on Facebook for an early peek at the stamp sets, as well as a SPECIAL Facebook GIVEAWAY, on Wednesday night beginning at approximately 6 pm PST.

Big hugs,
Sankari :)
