Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day One!


Hi there!!  It's the first day of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions and I can't wait for you to see the fantastic things Taylor is coming out with this month!  Today the Baker's Dozen is peeking the new set, Friendship Blooms along with it's coorinating Friendship Bloom Dies and Leafy Branch Die!  I don't know what I did before dies were invented!  LOL!

My sample uses the Friendship Bloom Dies so let's get to the card....shall we?


I stamped the flower stem image in Lime Pastel ink and cut it out with Circle Nestabilities, layering it on a Kraft Lacey Circle Nestie.  I stamped three of the flowers from Friendship Blooms in Tangerine ink and cut them out with their coordinating dies.  Each flower was popped up on foam tape and a button from my stash finish them off.  The patterned papers are from the Cosmo Cricket Pixie-Licious 6x6 pad. And do you see those sweet purple scallops just next to the ribbon?  That's a new die from TE!!  I used the Medium Scallop Border die!! Each layer was sewn with my sewing machine and some satin ribbon finishes it off.





Don't forget to see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has cooked up for today!
