Howdy everyone!!! Can you believe April has snuck upon us so quickly? I'm still wondering what the heck happened to March...are you with me??
Well, I'm excited for the new month because that always means I get to present to you some sneaks to the new Taylored Expressions release for the month! I've been having a ball playing with all of the new sets and accessories and dies, oh my!! :) Today is a jam packed sneak and I get to introduce you to:
Treasure Life: A full sized stamp set of deeply etched rubber housed on it's own panel. This set is filled with all things Apothecary...I love it! Plenty of apothecary jars and plenty of doo-dads and treasures to stamp inside of them just as you would fill in your home. :) And of course, what fun would a stamp set be without coordinating dies, right?? See where I'm going here??...
Apothecary Taylored Die Set: As if the name doesn't already give itself away...these little lovelies coordinate with all of the different apothecaries...LOVE IT!!!
The rest of the team will also be sneaking:
Dream Big full sized stamp set
Apothecary Shelf A la Carte
Stars Impression Plate
All designed by the ever talented, Nancy McKinney under her Whimsical Wishes line of stamps.
So without further ado...check it!
Just lovely, yes??? :) I simply stamped two of the apothecary jars andmatchedit with the sentiment, "I Treasure You." Just perfect!!! I used the MME Stella Rose Gertie papers on my card and some trim and seam binding I had in my stash to put this card together. For a little added sparkle, there are some Taylor's Tiny Twinkles on both the jars and my tag, because, you know, glass sparkles. :)
And I just couldn't stop there. I thought that the coordinating Apothecary Dies would be perfect as a tag. Like so....
The "love" sentiment comes straight from the stamp set and fits perfectly onto my "tag." What do you think?? I've already set this up in my little daughter's room and it just looks so lovely!! I merely took a craft bird nest and just filled it with some vintage lace trim, vintage button, embellished chipboard bird from Love Notes Chipboard set with a wing from the Pink Mini Rose Trim, a Scalloped Sparkler, and some seam binding from my stash. Easy Peasy!
And that's all I have for you today. Tomorrow I have quite a bit to share so I hope you will join me back here tomorrow...same place, same time?? :)
In the mean time, I hope you check out what the rest of the Baker's Dozen plus a couple of guests have to share with you...lots to see!!!
