November Stamp of the Month: In the Garden!

Hi Everyone,

Its time for a new Stamp of the Month from Taylored Expressions! The stamp of month this month is called: "In the Garden" and it also coordinates perfectly with the November's Key Ingredients kit and comes with a coordinating die :
This set is perfect paired with the November Key Ingredients Kit: -  and you can get both by checking out the Taylored Expressions Deluxe Subscription Kit here for more details. 
This stamp set is so Festive & Fun! I love the lanterns - and I love the flowers and the dies that come with them. I decided to make two cards for my project today. I wanted to create a simple design (kind of CAS-ish) and then take it one more step with some more additions in the second card - so kind of a simple one and then a little bit more is more on the second one :) Here is the set that I created with the KI kit and the stamp of the month for Nov:

I love how they turned out - and I always need birthday cards on hand - so it was fun to create some bday cards that I could make on a larger scale with the same layout. I die cut the flower into the cardstock and then popped the red flower out of the "die cut window" so that you could see the DP in the background: here is the simple one all by itself:
And here is the "more is more" card - I added a darker mat around the square DP and embossed a blue cardstock with some swiss dots and also added a smaller flower in the middle of the larger flower:

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: In The Garden from Taylored Expressions(November 2013 Stamp of the Month)
Ink: Memento Inks: Ladybug Red, and Tuxedo Black
Paper: November 2013 Key Ingredients Kit from Taylored Expressions (featuring Fancy Pants Happy Go Lucky)
Accessories: foam dimensionals, twine, white gel pen, corner rounder, Swiss dots embossing folder, copics, bling

This set is SO much fun and these papers in the KI kit are simple awesome - makes it so much fun to create when everything coordinates for you! Check out this amazing crew of designers that created projects with the kit and the stamp set:
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
