Hello again everyone and welcome back to Day 2 of sneaks for Taylored Expressions! There are just a ton of items to show and so, once again, the Bakers and I are all splitting up and showing you bits and pieces so be sure and hop on over to everyone's blog to get a taste of everything. :)
Today I get to share with you a Petite set called Wreath of Love. Not only that, this set features a coordinating Wreath Die AND Basic Bow Die!!! For being a smaller set, it sure does pack a big punch. I just loooove the images and sentiments in this one and you are going to love it for making adorable Valentine's or your general "love" themed projects!
For my project, I added a little homemade plushy heart pushpin to coordinate with my card. I'd been wanting to incorporate some muslin fabric into a project and this was just a perfect opportunity to! I think they really do make a gorgeous pair. :)
For my card, I started with using some Choice Snow White cardstock for my base and the new Echo Park Valentine Be Mine papers (that will be available in the store on Friday!) I took a piece of Muslin fabric and then die cut that out with the new die, Frame it Up. I stamped the pink hearts from the set in Memento's Angel Pink right onto the fabric and it made the perfect image...I just love the way rubber stamps perfectly onto fabric! I then stamped my wreath from the set and easily die cut it out with its coordinating Wreath die. Now, I gotta mention, this lovely little wreath set was concepted by our very own Jami Sibley and joined Nancy in her Whimsical Wishes line of stamps. :) The wreath was then quickly colored in with my Copic markers and I added some Stardust Stickles to the hearts for sparkle. And that cute little paper bow was also cut with the new Basic Bow die that cut AND embossed! You may not see it as well here on my card because I smothered it in glitter too, lol. :) Oh! And those pretty pink flowers are available in the store... Pink Mini Rose trim...thank me later!
And my little pretty Valentine pushpin was sooo easily made! I took two pieces of muslin and die cut those out with the Classic Scalloped Heart Nestabilities and then I stamped the heart images from the set randomly all over. After that, I just stitched by hand all around the border leaving a small section open to stuff in some Polyfill and done!
Now, it's time to check out what the rest of the Bakers have cooked up for you! I hope to see you back tomorrow with a VERY FUN post of more sneaks!!
