Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks - Day 2!!!!

I made a baby girl card for a dear friend of mine from high school using the beautifully illustrated  Bringing Home Baby stamp set - which is illustrated by amazing talents of the one and only Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line. This stamp set has 23 images and has the cutest images of nursery decor items as well as little mini images that you can use to create a little nursery scene or simple CAS cards - simply adorable!!!

I stamped the window and dresser in this stamp set and colored them with copics and glazed them, before popping them up on dimensionals onto the cardstock sheet. Onto the dresser I stamped, colored. cut and popped up various little decorations that are in this stamp set (seriously - there are SOOO many awesome little yummy stamps in this set!) and created a little scene using the stamps. I used the SCS sketch #330 from last week as my sketch inspiration. The border of the central image panel is bordered by the Scalloped Eyelet Border die from Taylored Expressions.  The buttons are from stash and are weaved and tied with some twine and I used the same twine to tie the sentiment: "It's a Girl!" on the the ribbon. I finished it off with a wee bit of liquid pearls and bit of glitter from my Spica pens. 

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Bringing Baby Home by Taylored Expressions
Paper: Tickled Pink from MME and Snowwhite Choice cardstock
Inks: Memento Rich Cocoa and copics
Accessories: twine, glaze, liquid pearls, satin ribbon, dimensionals, eyelet scalloped die from Taylored Expressions, buttons from stash and chunky glitter.

I really love how this turned out and can't wait to send it over to my friend! And one day soon, I hope I get to meet her little girl! Well, after making this Baby Girl card, I thought I would make a Baby Boy card :) using the second stamp set that we are previewing today called Baby Cakes!

The Baby Cakes stamp set not only has Cuppie but now Cuppie has a baby cupcake!!! Awww!!! This adorable stamp set illustrated by the wonderfully talented Jessie Oleson , has 18 images with sweet Cuppie and mini Cupkins with the sweet est sentiments ever. I have always adored Cuppie and now I love that there are mini Cuppie Cakes in the mix :) For my card today, I used the Spotted Owl DP from Jillibean Soup for a fun boy look :) I stamped Cuppie holding wee cuppie in a sling (which by the way is the only way I survived having my babies - I just carried them here and there and it was so easy and lovely! I was so excited that there was a Cuppie holding baby in a sling image! :) I popped Cuppie onto the From the Heart Frame die.  I used the Taylored Expressions Pennant Border Die with the TE Small Scallop die border on top of the card and finished it off with some hand cut hearts and a poofy ribbon :)

 Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Baby Cakes Home by Taylored Expressions
Paper:Jilibean Soup and Snowwhite Choice cardstock

Both of your cards are so beautiful, sweet girl! The chest reminds me of antique furniture and the cuppie card really looks like a celebration!

Sankari....I think your baby room creation is one of the prettiest and precious baby cards I've ever seen! It shows such craftsmanship. I love the gloss - it really gives it the feeling of polished furniture!
