Oh Nuts....It's Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks Day 2!


Hi there!!  Welcome back to day two of the Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks!

On the menu for today are the new Belated Birthday A la Carte stamps!  These stamps and sentiments were concepted by our own Jami Sibley and illustrated for the Apple Doodle Ink line!  There are seven different A la Carte stamps with coordinating sentiments.  The stamp I'm using today is called  Belated Birthday - Oh Nuts!  I can't wait for you to see it, so let's get started!


I told you it was so cute!!!  LOL!  I started with Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try for this week and pulled out some new Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather DP (not just for winter or Christmas!).  I stamped the adorable squirrel in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored him with Copic Markers.  I popped him up on foam tape on a Circle Nestability.  The smaller patterned circles were punched with a 1 3/4" circle punch and layered on a Circle Nestability.  The "Oh Nuts" sentiment was cut out witha Spellbinders Label Trio and while still in the die was sponged with red ink.  A button from my stash and some Farmer's Market Twine finish it off.  The second part of the sentiment is one long stamp.  I merely cut out each word separately and then popped it up on foam tape around the main image circle.  Some machine stitching and I called it done!

Now it's time to see what the Baker's Dozen has cooked up with today's stamps!
