Taylored Expressions RELEASE DAY!

It's finally Release Day at Taylored Expressions, which means you can purchase these sets as well as the Father's Day Key Ingredients or Boys Will Be Boys Bundle RIGHT NOW!


For today's projects, I have three cards for you! They are all using the Boys Will Be Boys set in the Whimsical Wishes line. Taylor is offering the Boys Will Be Boys Bundle which includes some charms AND some sheets of metal. You can read more about the bundle on THIS POST. When I saw the metal, the first thing I thought about was my husband's dream Stainless Steel grill! :) I stamped the grill on the metal and cut out just the drum part. I would say I paper-pieced, but I guess the correct term would be "metal-pieced". :) The rest of the grill was coloring using Copic markers and Spica Glitter pens. I hung the little spatula charm from the ribbon. The paper and ribbon are from the Father's Day Key Ingredients. I used the Curved Rectangle Nestabilities for the focal image.



For the next card, I made it very simple. I had intended to use the image of ties that is in the set, but once I created my "shirt", it seemed more appropriate to just use the sentiment. . .especially since there was no tie on the shirt! A little paper piercing and some buttons from the Father's Day Key Ingredients made this card come together quickly.

The last card uses the metal along with the screw brads. I thought these would go well with the airplane pattern paper. I used the Labels 1 Nestabilities for the boots image and sentiment. All paper and embellishments are from the Father's Day Key Ingredients.


Make sure you stop to see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has in store for you today!
