Good Morning Everyone!!!

Its Day One of release sneak peeks over at Taylored Expressions where this month, Taylor is releasing 3 wonderful Christmas and Holiday sets!!!!! woo-hoooo!!!!! Today the Baker's Dozen are featuring the beautiful stamp set: Christmas Blessings which will be available on October 3 (seriously, can you believe its October already!?!) This is such a beautiful and versatile stamp set and is full of lovely sentiments and scripture. I love the beautiful images and sentiments in this set - there are so many possibilities for cards, LO's, etc. As soon as I saw this set, I totally fell in love with the sweet bird in the set, so I created this little star card with the beautiful sentiment Joy - I love this font!

Card Details:
Paper: Making Memories (Mistletoe) and Prism Island Mist
Ink: Brilliance Gold ink, Brocade Blue and Not Quite Navy from SU!
Stamps: Christmas Blessings from Taylored Expressions
Accessories: Kaiser Rhinestones, star template from Kristina Werner, Stream color Adirondack liquid pearls, sponger, dimensionals, circle and scallop punch from SU!

I love this image of the manger and for this second card, I made a little glittery frame that is popped up on dimensionals over the silhouette. I wanted to keep it simple to show the beauty of the sweet image.

The papers for the next two cards are from the elegant SEI Christmas Mint Patterned papers which will be available October 3 at Taylored Expressions. These papers are shimmery and beautiful and add such a nice touch of holiday elegance. I used the SCS sketch 248 from this week for the card below and double inked the sentiments and of course had to go a little liquid pearl crazy :)

Ink: More Mustard and Old Olive SU!
