Hey everyone! I love the beginning of the month! Why, you ask? Well, because I get the privilege of sneaking the shiny new Taylored Expressions stamp sets!!! :) I probably say this every month, but this time I mean it like no other!! LOL! I LOVE THIS RELEASE!!!
Ok, there are two sets that I am sneaking for you today...that, and a card kit that will be available for purchase. Do you like shabby vintage like me? Then you are going to LOVE this card kit! I couldn't stop making cards with it!! Let me just shout this from the rooftop...."the paper is from the Girl's Paperie!!!!" Remember in a post earlier when I said it nearly brought me to tears to cut it up? LOL! Almost the same here...thank goodness Taylor had it all cut and ready for me!! :) I have LOTS to show today, so I'll just get it started and interject with the photos. :)
This is the whole shebang! A sampling of cards made with the kit AND my embellished card box. Oh yes....the kit comes with a beautiful card box with magnetic closure!! LOVE IT!! I heavily embellish my cards and when they stacked in there, there was definitely room for more!
I used scrap everything on this!! Scraps from the kit, fabric scraps, you name it! Don't throw any of your scraps away from this kit...this paper is just tooo pretty to do so! :) The pretty flower on top is one of the new pink Apple Blossoms in the store...you know I'm stocking up on those, right? :)
For the sides, I simply grabbed some vintage paper (Medical Journal from the early 1900s) and mod podged it on....so lovely!
I can't even begin to tell you how awesome this kit is! Let me give you a little rundown of what you get...
10 choice snow white cardstock bases (for you card)
15 pieces of the Girl's Paperie cardstock *drool drool drool* (this alone is worth any price!) 4x6 in size with all the different sheets....AND DOUBLE SIDED!!! Soooo many options with all the gorgeous papers...seriously
20 sheets of coordinating cardstock in 4x6 size...pretty pastels :)
Ribbon....lots of ribbon! :)
You DEFINITELY could make many more than 10 cards with this kit...trust me on this one!
Oh! You will also receive a downloadable inspiration sheet filled with card ideas to use with your kit once your purchase it...kind of like the cards I have to show here.....CASE away people!
Were you looking at that and wondering..., "Melissa, is that a stamp that fits inside a Labels 9 die???" Oh yes, my friend....your eyes are not deceiving you...and I LOVE IT!
A little Miniature Motifs on this one...stamped in white on the blue cardstock....sooo pretty!
Again with the scraps....I had little leftover pieces of the pretty floral pattern and the other side was this cute yellow gingham. I just punched little circles from them (they aren't even full circles) and adhered them atop each other! I cheated and used some of the pretty pink silk ribbon that Taylor carries on this one....I couldn't resist!
This time I wanted to highlight more of the Miniature Motifs set....used on the background white panel AND, if you look closely, there's another motif stamped and paper-pieced on my teacup. Scraps my friends....use 'em all!!!
Have you liked what you've seen so far? I REALLY hope so!! I had a blast working with these sets and the card kit....I definitely plan on making more! And you know what I'm going to say next, right? There is even MORE samples to see with this set and the rest of the Baker's Dozen wants to share!!! Please stop by and visit Taylor and the rest of the crew!
Taylor VanBruggen <------she has a video to share with you too!
See you tomorrow for MORE sneaks!!!
