Taylored Expressions Release Day!

 Hi there everyone!  It's release day over at Taylored Expressions!! Yippee!  That means everything you've seen throughout the week from the Baker's Dozen is now available for purchase!

But don't leave yet!  The Baker's Dozen has another round of fabulous inspiration using all of the sets you've seen this week!  I have two more peeks to share with you using my favorite Cuppie set to date, Udderly Sweet and the fabulous new Hangin' Out At the Beach!


Oh my word.....isn't farmer Cuppie the cutest?  I made this card with my hubby in mind, hence all the love!  I started by stamping the image in Memento Black and coloring with Copics.  I cut the image out with a Heart Nestie and before removing it from the die sponged the sky using a scallop circle as the template and then sponging some dirt at the bottom.  The sun is from Garden Party Blooms.  The sentiment was cut out with a Ribbon Tag Trio die and was sponged with Spring Rain ink before removing from the die.  All of the cardstock, dp and ribbon are from the Udderly Sweet Project Pantry Kit


This next card uses Hangin Out At the Beach and I tried something I'd never done before.....a Shaker Card!  It was so easy and I just love how it turned out!  I followed the tutorial for Shaker Cards here.  I used the darling (wish I could fit into it) bikini.  The shaker portion of the card is filled with sand.  A little twine and a button finishes off the front. 


I didn't have room for the sentiment on the front, so I finished the inside!  Oh, and I used the Corner Chomper again....it now has a permanent spot on my desk!  Never thought I could love a tool as much as I love the Corner Chomper!

Don't forget to cruise around to see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has to showcase today!!
