HI Everyone,

Welcome everyone to Day 3 of Sneak Peeks over at Taylored Expressions, where today the Baker's Design DT will be showing sneak peeks from the stamp set called: Enjoy which was the concept of the lovely Jami Sibley and is illustrated by the awesome Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line at Taylored Expressions. This stamp set is designed to make it easy to create year-round gift card giving with such lovely versatile images for any giftcard that you might want to give! All the images fit into a 3/4" circle punch, into so many of the Spellbinder's die shapes and Taylored Dies. Speaking of which, this stamp set has a cool stamp which is an awesome frame - that can go with a coordinating Gift Card Frame - which is one of the brand new Taylored Dies which will be released along with all the stamp sets - this die and frame fits PERFECTLY on top of a small hinged (altoid style) tin - love that!!!

This stamp set ENJOY has 18 images (including the frame), 11 gift icons and 6 sentiments and so it makes giving that perfect gift so much easier! I love giving giftcards (esp. to teens since I don't usually know what's "cool" that they might be wanting) - I know that this Christmas - alot of giftcards are going to be given. But the one thing that I don't like about giving them is that they are kinda boring to open - so I love that you can really personalize and make opening a gift card fun!

For my project today, I decorated a small-hinged tin using the popcorn and movie reel image - I LOVE this cute image!!! I made this for my friend's daughter for whose birthday I had promised to take her to the movies - but wasn't in town to do it - so I wanted to give this to her with tickets to the movie of her choice:
I stamped the frame image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored in the circles with my copics and then used the GiftCard Frame Die to cut it out. I stamped the popcorn and movie image and colored it in with my copics and then finished it by adding a gloss to the frame and then added the sentiment. I created some glitter paper by adding some raspberry soda glitter onto some Best Glue Ever and then letting it dry - and then punching it out with a heart punch. Here is how it looks when you open it:

I created a little movie reel by cutting some black cardstock and then adding some white cardstock squares and then finishing it with some liquid pearls - I covered the whole reel with some Glossy accents.The bottom part of the tin has a little box glued down to it (made by folding some pink cardstock and having the sentiment "enjoy" stamped to the top). When you open the "Enjoy" box:

When you open the "Enjoy" box within the tin, there are some Jr. Mints ready to be eaten and I created some tickets which I added the sentiment to: "A Gift For You" and then underneath I stamped the sentiment: "I owe you". I popped the tickets onto the bottom of the tin with some dimensionals. As soon as she tells me what movie she would like to see, I am going to put our tickets in the tin for her to open :) And afterwards, she has a little tin to put other little knicknacks and little treasures :)
