Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Summer Afternoon and Care & Comfort

Hey everyone! Glad to see you back here again for Day 2 of sneaks for Taylored Expressions! You're definitely going to want to check out what the Baker's Dozen has in store for you, because HALF of us are sneaking two sets (me included) and the other half are sneaking a whole 'nother set! *hint hint* Cuppie has returned!

This first set I'm sneaking for you is a gorgeous set for summer...think along the lines of Discover Your Wings.... gorgeous images that you'll NEED in your stamping arsenal. :) The set is called Summer Afternoon and it's built around this fantastic focal frame that I stamped with here...


Ahhh...this set just has so many possibilities! I went with something that could be stamped and be put together very quickly (shocking, I know!) But you could definitely make this vintagey, grungy, or beautiful and clean! So with a quick swift stamp, stamp and some patterned paper, you could literally churn out a bunch of these babies! I used October Afternoon's Thrift Shop patterned paper and some super cute Maya Road Ruffled Trim coupled with some olive grosgrain ribbon and flower and was done! Sinfully simple, I know! I still think it packs a pretty punch though. :)

The next set is called Care & Comfort and this is another have-to-have set! If you're always searching for a beautiful sympathy and Bible verse sentiment set, look no further! Many of these sentiments fit perfectly within the frame of Summer Afternoon, so they make a great pair! I chose to go a different route and not use the obvious but still managed to use both sets together.


Beautiful, yes? I hope you like them because I'm thrilled to have another set like Discover Your Wings...but for summer!

Now, be sure to check out what everyone has created! Remember...some of us are sneaking a different set, so you'll want to see that too!

See you back here tomorrow for more sneaks!! :)

So pretty, Melissa! I LOVE the summery colors you used in the top card and that frame is gorgeous stamped in red!

And how do you get that shriveled ribbon look? Do you heat it? So cool!
