Taylored Expressions December Sneak Peek

It’s sneak peek time at Taylored Expressions and we've got a lot to show you over the next few days!  This month we're doing a Petite-a-Palooza featuring sets from all our illustrators.  They make great gifts for crafty friends and are a great way to "get started" with TE if you've never tried our stamps before. 

I am featuring two sets today.  The first is called You Take the Cake and it is a full size set that was first introduced as a free promotional item during our September Birthday Bash but now it will be available for sale!  It features images from all of our designers and is great for birthdays! 

For my card, I stamped and colored the present and balloon image with Copic markers and then cut it out.  The papers are from the 9 to 5 Collection from October Afternoon.  For the little scalloped piece, I used the Small Scallop Border Die.  For fun and some sparkle, I added some Glitter Tape!  I used Spinach and Rouge

My second project today features the Love Bugs set.  Love Bugs comes with 2 dies and is the beginning of a fun new series of all sorts of canning jars and contents.  It was concepted by Jami and illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line.  It's an adorable set and I just LOVE the little bugs!  :)

I stamped the jar and then die cut it using the coordinating dies.  I stamped the bugs inside and colored the jar and bugs.  I paper pieced part of the lid.  The sentiment was stamped in white craft ink and then embossed in white.  The papers are from the Happy Day Collection from Simple Stories.  I stamped a little "hello" on the jar tag with the Many Minis - Occasions set.

We have inspiration to share Wednesday through Saturday.   All of the new products will be available for purchase tomorrow, Thursday, December 6th at 8 am PST. You'll find it all in the Fresh out of the Oven Department at the Taylored Expressions Store.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has for you today!  Hope to see you again tomorrow!!
