RELEASE DAY -at Taylored Expressions!!!!!!!

Good Morning Everyone,

Today is Release Day over at Taylored Expressions and it is HUGE!!! Today Taylor is releasing 4 full stamp sets, 1 mini set, 3 A La Carte Cuppie stamps and 3 new Card Kits!!! Getting inky just got more fun!! Today I am So excited to peek a new set from the Apple Doodle Ink Collection from Taylored Expressions featuring the super sweet cutie: Tena :) who is visiting a coffee shop in this stamp set called: Let's Do Coffee!

I wanted to show the versatility of these stamps and how you can add an element and change the sentiment for a different feel of the card. So I pulled out my stamp-a-majig and created this series of adding a stool and Tena with different sentiments and used the awnings from the Window Shopping stamp set:


To keep it simple, I kept the layout and colors all the same (the papers are from Cosmo Cricket and Martha Stewart). I love sweet Tena (her name is pronounced Tina, its just spelled TEna for TE or Taylored Expressions ;) isn't she cute!

Card #1 - One Table and Two Stools :)
I started out with some Buttercream Choice cardstock and stamped a table and then with my stamp-a-majig, I spaced out and stamped two stools - after coloring it - I added the sentiment: "Missing You" :

Card #2 - One Table, One Stool and Tena:
I stamped the table and then used a stamp-a-majig to stamp Tena so that her elbow rested on the table and then paired it up with the sentiment: "What's brewin?"

Card #3 - One Table and Two Stools and Tena:
I stamped the table and then used a stamp-a-majig for Tena and to stamp another stool and paired it up with the sentiment: "Let's do Coffee" (I am so excited to give this card to one of my dear friends with whom I used to have regular coffee dates - but recently we have been a bit busy so we haven't had our coffee dates... Love this sentiment!

It was so much fun to create this series :) I love the versatility of this set (there are so many different things that you can do with all the super cute coffee images and sentiments that it makes my head dizzy!)
