Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks Day One!

This is my third post today!  To see Verve or The Cat's Pajamas posts, please scroll down!  Thank you!



It's the first day of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions and I'm so excited to share with you the new set New Beginnings with the coordinating Frame It Up Die and Butterfly die!

This set was concepted by our own Sankari Wegman and for the TE line, illustrated by Taylor herself!  It's gorgeous.....so let's get to it!


I paired New Beginnings with Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 papers and got to work.  I stamped the frame image from the set in Versamark and heat embossed it with black embossing powder, then cut it out with the Frame It Up Die.  Three butterflies were stamped in Yellow Ochre Fluid Chalk Ink and cut out with their coordinating Butterfly Dies.  I ran some baker's twine on either side of the main image and finished it off with two black buttons from my stash.  Some machine stitching and black adhesive gems finish the card!





Don't forget to check out what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has cooked up for this peek:
