Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peek Day 1

Hello and welcome to Day 1 of sneak peeks for the Taylored Expressions October Release!!  We have LOTS of wonderful new things to show you from now until Friday, so I hope you'll stop by each day to take a peek!!

For my first project today, I am featuring the new Best Nests set along with the new Quatrefoil Cutting Plate!!  Best Nests is an adorable all-occasion stamp set featuring bird houses for different seasons.  It was designed by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line.  The Quatrefoil Cutting Plate was also designed by Nancy!  It was designed to cover the front of a card and measures 4" x 5.25".  It adds such a touch of elegance to any card! 

I chose to use a bird nest that is just plain cute and perfect for any everyday "hi!".  I colored the image using Copic markers.  I also used another new item on this card, the Label Stacklets 1 Dies!!  You're going to love these. . .I know I do!  I think I've used them on about every card I created this release!  :)  I also used the Miss Caroline All Dolled Up Collection from My Mind's Eye on this card. 

For my second project, I used the new A Bushel & a Peck stamp set!  A Bushel & a Peck was designed by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink line and coordinates wonderfully with our previously released All Aboard and Loads of Fun sets.  I chose to use the basket along with the pumpkin image to create a Fall "thinking of you" card.  I stamped the pumpkins twice. . .once on the die cut piece for the card and once on a scrap piece of paper.  I colored the pumpkins using Copic markers and then cut out one of the pumpkins from the scrap piece and mounted it on top of the "real" image with foam tape.  Next, I stamped the basket on a scrap piece of cardstock, colored it, cut it out and attached it over the pumpkin image.  It gives a real dimesional feel to the basket.  Again, I used the Label Stacklets 1 Dies on this card. 

I hope you've enjoyed today's peeks!  All of the new products will be available for purchase on Thursday, October 4th at 8 am PST. You'll find it all in the Fresh out of the Oven Department at the Taylored Expressions Store.  And don't forget, an early peek at the stamp sets, as well as a SPECIAL Facebook GIVEAWAY, on Wednesday night beginning at approximately 6 pm PST.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you back tomorrow!
