Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks Day 2!!


It's day two of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions and on the menu today are two new sets!  Fashionista from the Apple Doodle Ink line and Wreath of Luck, concepted by Jami Sibley and designed by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes Line!  Both sets are fantastic and I have a sample from each set.....So let's get started!


First up is Fashionista!  Tena is back with a love of shoes!  Fashionista is a set of 24 deeply etched red rubber stamps mounted on cling foam.  I used just two of the 18 stamps on my card today.  I am a lover of shoes, although now that I have kids I can't always indulge in that love!  LOL

I stamped the sentiment three times, cutting it out with a circle punch.  I then stamped the darling pump three times, colored each with Copics, adding some sparkle to the flower with a Red Copic Spica Glitter pen.  Each shoe was punched out with a circle punch and finished with an adhesive gem in the center of the flower.  The papers are Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934.  Some machine stitching, crinkle ribbon and two heart pins finish it off!


This card was made with the new Wreath of Luck Petite set!  Wreath of Luck contains 9 images just perfect for St. Patrick's Day! Taylor is also releasing a Lucky Sampler, a sampling of many embellishments and papers that are green and perfect for St. Patrick's Day, or if you just love green!  The glitter candy dots on my card are from that kit!

I used a mix of October Afternoon papers on my card.....I just chose all of the green patterns!  I stamped the wreath from the set in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored it with Copic Markers and cut it out with the coordinating Wreath Die.  It was popped up on foam tape for dimension.  Some machine stitching and baker's twine finish it off.  The sketch is last week's Mojo Monday sketch, Mojo175.


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


Thanks for stopping by!
