Taylored Expressions RELEASE DAY!

It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions!  You can now purchase everything you've seen here in the last few days!  Today I have quite a few projects for you!  The first uses the Summer Afternoon set.  I just love how delicate this set is.  This frame is such a beautiful image and I decided to go "old school" with it and use the Poppin' Pastels technique.  I stamped the image in Versamark ink and used my chalks to color the image.  After I colored it with the chalks, I added some Flower Soft to the vines to give some extra detail.  The sentiment was stamped, punched out and mounted on foam tape and adhered to the center of the frame.  I used the Blue Hill Collection from Crate Paper.

I added a little "gift" box using one of the Scalloped Purse favor boxes

Here's a totally different take using the Summer Afternoon set.  I used the Free Bird Collection from My Mind's Eye. 

I did some silhouette stamping in colors that matched the patterned paper.  Finally I added some Tiny Twinkles to the flowers. 

This next creation uses the Summer Afternoon set along with Care & Comfort.  I thought this little card would be perfect for a Christening.  I usually make all white cards for baptisms, but I thought this sentiment was perfect for the occasion and I just added some color!  :) 

Finally, I have to show you a project using the 4th of July A la Carte images, Celebrate Freedom.  The 4th of July is my FAVORITE holiday.  I just LOVE it.  I love the colors associated with it, the fireworks, the memories growing up (I always thought the fireworks were in celebration of my birthday!  LOL)  I made a card and coordinating star box.  These use the coordinating 4th of July Project Pantry as well as the Big Scalloped Ovals.  The images are embossed and lots of glitter and Tiny Twinkles stars were added! 

So, there you have it!  You can go to the Fresh Out of the Oven category to locate all of the new release items!  Be sure to stop by the rest of the Baker's Dozen blogs to see what they have cooked up for you today!  Thanks for stopping by and happy shopping!
