Hi Everyone,.

Today marks Day 2 of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions - where today we are introducing the newest TE illustrator Emily Burger and her collection Embracing Grace! We start of this new TE collection with the gorgeous stamp set: Love Grows Here featuring 7 vignettes that is perfect for every season year round! This is a full sized set and like all of Taylored Expressions stamps - this set is a beautiful pink rubber that is deeply etched pre-cut on EZ mount and ready to be stamped using an acrylic block. All the TE stamps can be stored in the Mini Binder Boxes (4 sets fit into one binder). 


This stamp set is so gorgeous - I love all of the different trees in this set and also that they are perfect for cardmaking size - cute and sweet! Each of the sentiments and fonts are lovely - but this one: "Happy Everything" is my favorite I think - it makes me happy just to stamp it :) I created a little oval using the Frame It Up 2 die from Taylored Expressions and then cut an oval into it and popped it up over the stamped image of this darling tree with a tire swing (which I used to love to get dizzy on when I was a child!). I rolled a rose and then used the Mini Leaves Taylored Die (designed by Nancy McKinney - to be released on Thursday) to cut out leaves for the rose. I added some grass with the TE Grass border die and popped up the frame with some dimensionals and added a little row of liquid pearls around it :

Card Ingredients; 
Paper; Bazzill cardstock, MME Fly a Kite collection
Stamps: Love Grows Here from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento: Ladybug Red (Memento) and copics
Accessories: Mini Leaf die, Frame it Up 2 die and Grass Border die  from Taylored Expressions, pearl from Want2Scrap, liquid pearls, Spellbinders flag and oval die, ribbon and dimensionals

This is such a fun set - and there are so many many possibilities with all of these cute trees - it makes my mind dizzy just thinking of all of the different projects that I can do! Today Taylor is also introducing 2 new Mokas to the Moka Collection - please welcome Moka Morgana (inspired by Nancy McKinney's daughter who loves to dance) and Moka Kate (perfect for any celebration!) along with the Petite set: Life is a Dance! These sets go perfectly with each other or on their own! I created my Moka Morgana card today especially for my little ballerina who loves to flit and float and twirl down the aisles of the grocery store or at home:

Card Ingredients; 
Paper; Bazzill cardstock, Aunthentique Uncommon paper collection
Stamps: Moka Morgana from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento: Rose Red (Memento) and copics
Accessories: Mini Leaf die, paper crimper, liquid pearls, Spellbinders dies, ribbon from stash, grey felt flower, EK success wave border punch, stickles and dimensionals

I used used Taylor's Sketch # 149 for this card an the Aunthentique Uncommon paper collection - perfect for every pink ballerina and give her tutu a little flow by stamping it on vellum and then adorning it with stickles. I used the  Mini Leaves Taylored Die  to add a leaf sprig to the grey felt flower and the lovely sentiment: "You are so beautiful" - I love this sentiment and this sweet ballerina - and was so happy to make this for my little ballerina :) I can't wait to see al all the projects in store today that the Design Team has created  - please hop with me and take a look:

THank you so much for stopping by today!
Please stop by tomorrow for more sneak peeks!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
