Taylored Expressions January Sneak Peek: Bless Your Nest/Hugs & Kisses


I can't believe it's time for another Taylored Expressions Release!  I think you're going to LOVE what we have to show you the next few days!  Today I have two projects to share using two new stamp sets!!

My first project uses the Bless Your Nest set.  Bless Your Nest is the newest in the Whimsical Wishes line and is just sweet as can be.  There is a coordinating Bless Your Nest Die Set sold separately.  I started by diecutting a piece of Buttercream cardstock with the Labels Stacklets 2.  Next I stamped the branch/leaf outline, then I went back with my Stamp-a-ma-jig and stamped leaf filler image.  The bird and the nest were die cut using the Bless Your Nest Die Set.  Another new products I used on this card is the Banner Stacklets 1!!  The papers are all from the new Valentine Project Pantry!  :)

I love that this set can be used for someone getting a new home/apartment, for new babies or for birthday wishes!  With the adorable bird and nest, I can definitely see myself using this set a lot!  :)

My second project today uses the Hugs &Kisses set.  Hugs & Kisses follows up the Love Bugs set from last month and comes with a coordinating die as well.  It's another adorable jar that you can "contain" your love in!  I decided to fill mine with hearts.  I stamped and die cut the jar and then colored it using Copic markers.  Again, I used the Valentine Project Pantry for my card along with the Banner Stacklets 1 for the sentiment. 

With all of the chalkboard technique I've been seeing, I decided to make my label look like a little chalkboard label.  Preserves was stamped in white craft ink and embossed in white. 

I hope you've enjoyed today's projects and can't wait to see more!  ;)  Tomorrow is RELEASE DAY, so if something has caught your eye, it will be available for purchase tomorrow at 8am Pacific!!  For now, though, you can hop around to the rest of the Baker's Dozen to see what they have to share today!!  Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you again tomorrow!
