Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 1

Are you ready for some sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions!?  Today, we're featuring three new sets that will be released, Friday, September 3rd at 8am Pacific.  They are Make A Wish, Borderlicious and Bubbles Big Background, all illustrated by Nancy McKinney.  Today I have a project for you using Make a Wish and a bit of Borderlicious

The Make a Wish stamp set is the next set in the TE Giving Tree series of special stamp sets to help support various charities.  For the months of September, October and November when you purchase this set you'll be helping to support a national children's charity that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

 Remember, charitable stamp sets are sold as a sheet of rubber and will need to be trimmed before using. We do this in order to reduce the cost of manufacturing and be able to donate even more to charity.

Here is a card and gift ensemble I created with the Make a Wish set.  Do you notice the balloons on the treat package?  Well, they were cut out using coordinating dies!  You will LOVE the balloon dies!  They make it so simple! 
On the card, I used two dies that were released last month, Take Note Die 1 and Take Note Die 2.  They layer very nicely together!  The paper in this project is from the Make a Wish Project Pantry.  I colored the sentiment in using Copic markers and then added some Stardust Stickles on top.  The banner was hand cut and then some bling was added along the top.  If you notice along the bottom of the card, there is some "stitching".  That is one of the stamps in the Borderlicious set!  You know how much I LOVE my faux stitching, so this stamp REALLY excited me!  :)

I created the box for the treat and filled it with Jolly Ranchers.  The balloons are attached along with the Baker's Twine that came in the Make a Wish Project Pantry

Be sure and check out what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has created using these sets:  (oh, and a HUGE welcome to Danielle, Regina and Tori!!!)

Loving that banner with the bling - super cute! And your treat box is darling - you always make the most amazing 3D items. Love it. What a wonderful treat for your nephew to have met Mickey Mouse through Make a Wish - such a cherished memory.
