Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 1

It's time for sneak peeks at Taylored Expressions!  Everything being seen in sneak peeks this week will be available for purchase on Thursday morning, May 5th, at 8am Pacific!  Today we're featuring lots!  We're featuring stamp sets Welcome Little One, Invitation and Announcements A la Carte stamps, Heart Frame A la Carte and Baby A la Carte, and dies Frame It Up 2 Die and Bracket Die, along with two new Project Pantry Kits

The first project I have for you uses the Baby A la Carte stamp.  I stamped it onto green cardstock and colored in the letters with Copic markers.  The papers are from the Alphabet Soup Girl Project Pantry.  I know it look boy-like with the colors, but I used the colors from the kit that would work more for a boy to contrast with my other project using the same kit!  I used the Heart Frame A la Carte and Frame It Up 2 Die to create the matte for the focal piece.  The focal piece was die cut using the Frame It Up 1 Die

My second project today uses the new TE Giving Tree charitable set, Welcome Little One, along with the Announcement A la Carte stamp.  For the months of May, June and July when you purchase the Welcome Little One set you'll be helping to support Bethany Christian Services, the nation's largest adoption agency. BCS also cares for women facing unplanned pregnancies as well as orphans living on 5 continents. Their comprehensive services include adoption, temporary foster care, counseling, training, and family support knowing that children thrive in safe, loving, and strong families. Taylored Expressions will donate $7.00 to Bethany Christian Services for each Welcome Little One stamp set sold in the next 3 months. 

Welcome Little One was designed and illustrated by Taylor VanBruggen as part ofthe *te* Collection of stamps.  This full-sized set includes 26 images in high quality deeply-etched rubber on EZ-Mount.  It's perfect for birth announcements (in coordination with the Announcement A la Carte as shown) and both pregnancy and birth congratulations. 

Remember that the TE Giving Tree stamp sets come in sheet form and need to be trimmed.  This allows us to donate more to charity. 

For my card, I also used the new Bracket Frame Die to coordinate with the image from the set.  The papers are all from the Alphabet Soup Girl Project Pantry, this time using the more "girly" papers.  The inside of the card uses the Announcement A la Carte stamp along with a photo from when my second daughter was born.  I thought this would be a nice way to announce a new baby. . .in card format. 

Please be sure and visit the rest of the Baker's Dozen to see more of today's featured sets and dies!  I'll have more to show you tomorrow, so please stop back!  Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
