Taylored Expressions RELEASE DAY!

Today's the day! All of these sets are available for purchase NOW at Taylored Expressions!

The final set being released is called Cuppie Love Scenes. The idea for this set came from our very own Donna Baker! Isn't it adorable? I have three cards for you today since I couldn't decide which image was my favorite! I just LOVE them all!

The first card uses the Cuppies on the couch with the sentiment "thanks for always being by my side". I paper pieced the couch and then shaded it using a Copic marker. The patterned paper is meant to look like the wallpaper. Two little added extras that you might notice on this card are the heart rhinestone above the Cuppies and the heart stick pin in the ribbon. Both of these items are part of the Valentine Accessory Add-on available at Taylored Expressions.

My second card uses the movie theater image in the set. Can you stand how cute this image is? I can't! LOL I paper pieced the curtain and mounted it using foam dimensional adhesive. All of the coloring was done using Copic markers. Another new item at Taylored Expressions are these Polymer Clay Buttons created by Jamie Pyles. Aren't they just the cutest? Jamie created these exclusively for Taylored Expressions. These buttons were designed to coordinate with the cardstock and patterned paper in our Valentine Key Ingredients.






The last card I have to share with you uses the hot air balloon image in the set. I paper pieced the balloon and sponged Burnt Umber ink on the edges to give it some depth and contrast. You'll notice two "different" items on this card as well. The first is the frame. This also was created by Jamie Pyles. They are called Frameabellies. These frames were designed to coordinate perfectly with Spellbinders dies. Just cut out your cardstock panel and adhere the frame directly over the cardstock. Isn't it amazing what Jamie creates with polymer clay? The second item on this card is the Velvet Heart Trim along the bottom. This is part of the Valentine Accessory Add-on. I think it adds a really neat touch, don't you?
I hope you like this set as much as I do! Be sure to stop by and see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has to show you today!
