Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks - Day 2: Crafty Petites

Hi Everyone,
Today is Day 2 of Sneak Peeks from Taylored Expressions December Release and today Taylor is releasing a new "size" of stamps: The Petites!!!!!!!! They are 3" x 5.5" and they are waaaay too cute! 
These are full color panels just like the larger sets and there are 4 stamp sets in this size that Taylor will be releasing tomorrow at 8am PST, designed by the amazing Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line for Taylored Expressions! Each of these stamp sets will retail for $7.95! PERFECT for stocking stuffers or to give to your crafty friends (or for yourself!!! :) Taylor has a great video that introduces all the different size stamp sets that Taylored Expressions has to offer - check out the Video here!

Taylor is also releasing.....drumroll please..... some AWESOME new scalloped border dies - that are a definite MUST HAVE!!!! Seriously - scalloped dies are my fave - and now they are in all kinds of coordinating sized scallops.... I am so excited and now that I am about to get scallop happy on all my cards!!! Yes, that is a new term! :) Check out all the three size die shapes here!!! SERIOUSLY, I am in LOVE!!!!

 For my project today, I used the beyond cute cute cute stamp set called: Knit Wit (hahahaha! HOW cute is that name!!!?!) to create a little giftbasket for my crafty SIL who loves to knit! I went with some christmas reds and greens for her Christmas present and found this amazing blend of cashmere and wool yarn in her favorite color red! I can't wait for her to see it!
Here is the card that made using the sweeeeeeeet sheep image - seriously - isn't this little lambie SO cute??? I wrapped some twine around the card - and love this sentiment: Wrap yourself in wool - SO cute and perfect for all your knit crafty friends - (wait till you see all the sentiments - they are awesome for this set!!)

I created a little strip and added a little sheep image to the strip and wrapped it around the yarn before putting it in the basket:
Here is a close up of the sheep - isn't he soooo cute??! I wanted to cover the packaging on the yarn - so I cut a strip of paper, outlined it with liquid pearls and put a ribbon down the middle. I then stamped the sheep three times, colored him and covered him with liquid pearl droplets and then added him to a scalloped green mat with a red bow that I adhered to the strip and then wrapped around each ball of yarn. here is a closer peek at this cute little Lambie:

And here is a close up of the sheep and all the different scallop dies that Taylor will be releasing - - I made the sheep a little ball of liquid pearl yumminess :))))) and finished the edges of the scallops with some liquid pearls too :) I cut the large scallop size out of the red and then the medium scallop die out of green and then put the small scalloped die out of red on top of the green one. They layer ontop of each other PERFECTLY! I

These images are from the Knit Wit stamp set. Taylor will also be releasing 3 other stamp sets in this size that you don't want to miss out on. These 4 stamp sets in this new size are:
