Hi there! Today is the first day of the Taylored Expressions sneak peeks and we have two brand new product lines to share with you!
The first is the launch of the new TE stamp line designed and illustrated by Taylor Van Bruggen herself! She is kicking off her new line of stamps with 2 adorable coordinating sets, Garden Party Blooms and Garden Party Critters and our first ever Big Background Stamp, Cloudy Days! These sets are SO CUTE and are what the Baker's Dozen will be showcasing today!
We are also introducing the Project Pantry. When you are looking for just the right ingredients to create a new recipe where do you look? In the Pantry of course! Taylored Expressions is introducing a new line of kits called the Project Pantry with just the right ingredients for your cardmaking and paper crafting projects. These kits will be a variation on our Key Ingredients and our Taylored Card Kits. We will introduce them each month at Release time and you will have the option to purchase them with or without stamp sets included.
I'll have all the details of the Project Pantry Kit at the bottom of this post. So let's get to the cards I made, shall we?
My first card uses the new Garden Party Critters! I decided that the bee hive from the set would look cute hanging from a tree or a branch, so I used a branch and some leaves from Branching Out to do just that! I stamped the bee from the set three times, cut them out and placed them around the hive. The bee hive itself was popped up for dimension with foam tape. The cardstock, designer paper and ribbon are from the new Garden Party Pantry Kit. The cork is from my stash and was cut with an EK Success Large Scallop Punch.
This card uses Garden Party Blooms and this week's Card Positioning Systems Sketch #165 sponsored by Taylored Expressions! All of the cardstock and designer paper are from the Garden Party Pantry Kit. I paper pieced the flower and added some grass with a Martha Stewart Grass Punch. I then cut the image out with rectangle Nestabilities, rounded the corners with a Corner Chomper and layered it on a Big Scallop Rectangle Nestability. The sun and the butterfly were stamped in Summer Sunrise ink and cut out with paper snips. A little machine stitching and I called it done!
