Today is the big release day over at Taylored Expessions where you can see the two new stamp sets fresh out of the oven - plus a whole lot more.
To celebrate - I made a quick (I am talking 14 minute card) and a coordinating purse!! I loved the colors that Kristina has up for her ColorInspirationChallenge this week - so I used that as inspiration - as well as Taylor's awesome sketch #62. I love these new stamps that Taylor has in her Downtown Diva stamp set - and one of my favorite images is this cute little purses stamp with the sentiment Retail Therapy (and who couldn't use a little retail therapy? I know I could!!).
I created a matching "purse favor box", which is going to be available at the Taylored Expressions store today - it is perfect for Mother's Day or just giving a gift for that special lady!
And here is a shot of the matching card and the purse (I am thinking to fill it up with chocolate - isn't that what we all need - a purse full of chocoalte - forget your driver's liscence or keys!)
I also used the Favor Box with the oval window opening from Taylor's Store (I love all her Favor Boxes - they are sooo convenient to have on hand - already scored - ready to be folded) and covered the opening with some vellum.
I decided to make some mini note cards for my mother's day gift for my mom that she can give out with gifts.
I used one 8 1/2 x 11" paper from the Mother's Day Key Ingredients kit that I folded into a trifold and then cut out the 2 3/16th inches. I paper pieced this new cuppie set with the papers from the Mother's Day Key Ingredients kit - got to love all the rhinestones in this kit! Isn't this image of Cuppie SO cute?
It was so much fun to use this new Cuppie from the Downtown Diva set - that set is so versatile - its perfect for any project! Well, Taylored Expressions is the place to be this morning because the store is ready to be shopped at - talk about Retail Therapy!!!
