It's the first day of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions and you're in for a real treat!  Today we're featuring Build a Treat, Build a Treat Borders, Birthday A la Carte, Sweet Party and the coordinating dies! 

My first project uses the Build a Treat set.  Build a Treat (and Build a Treat Borders) is an adorable idea concepted by sweet, sweet Sankari!  It's like "Build a Bear" except with cupcakes and ice cream!  :)  They were illustrated by Nancy McKinney and are part of the Whimsical Wishes line.  Both sets have coordinating dies!  They are both full sized sets too!  Build a Treat includes 30 images and sentiments and Build a Treat Borders includes 5 borders, each approximately 6" long, both line art and solid images. 

I used the Life of the Party Collection from My Mind's Eye for my card.  I stamped the cupcake bottom onto patterned paper and stamped the top onto white cardstock and I die cut them using the Build a Treat Tops and Bottoms Die along with the Tiny Toppers for the cherry! 

My second project today uses the Sweet Party set.  Sweet Party is a cute petite set that is reminiscent of our very first stamp set, Sweet Celebration and it is to help celebrated TE's 3rd birthday!  It was illustrated by Jessie Oleson for the Stamp a Sweet Impression line.  It contains the party scene image plus 3 cute sentiments.  You can purchase this petite stamp set for $7.95 or get it for FREE with a purchase of $100 or more in the TE Store Thursday-Monday! 

I used papers from the Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky Collection from My Mind's Eye.  I stamped the image onto white cardstock, colored it with Copic markers and die cut it using the Frame It Up 1 Die.  I tied a bow with some Hot Pink Double-Edged Polka Dot Ribbon
