Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 2

Hi everyone and welcome back to Day 2 of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions! Don't forget that the big release will be bright and early Thursday morning, April 7th at 8:00 AM PST, so mark your calendars and be prepared to shop!!!

I have a LOT to share with you today and let's get right down to business, am I right?? :)

Today I get to share with you one of TWO card kits that are releasing along with the new stamps and dies. I just love these card kits and this is definitely no exception! You see, you will receive all the cardstock, patterned paper, accessories, and Taylored card kit box you need to make yourself a nice little collection of cards... at minimum, 10 cards!! I made 4 completely different cards and embellished my box to match. :) Check it out....


I present to you...the new stamp set, It's a Banner Day 3 with coordinating die along with the Emma's Shoppe Card kit!!! This new banner set is the 3rd in the series concepted by the very talented Iwona Palamountain. The It's a Banner Day 3 is a mini stamp set, still on that high quality deeply etched rubber on EZ Mount, pre-trimmed and ready for immediate use, and has 11 images... and I used a nice selection of them right here on my cards!

This is just the cover of my box, which assembles lightning fast!! No glue or master's degree in engineering is required!!! :) I simply painted some acrylic paint right to the top and sides of my box and let it quickly dry. After that, I placed one of the patterned paper sheets (included in the Card Kit), right onto the top of my box and then added an entire layer of Mod Podge all over to set. It also makes a really nice smooth appearance, as if the top layer is actually a part of the box! I made a zipper flower with the new Maya Road Cloud White Zipper trim available right in the store!

Here is 1 of the 4 cards I created. Believe it or not, these really do come together so quickly!! I added some Maya Road Love Notes Chipboard to my kit (also available right in the store) as an added embellishment to my cards. The doily is just from my stash (we all have these in our stash, right?), and the pink ruffle rose is sold out from the store currently but there are plenty more in different colors in stock!

And another....

One more...


A nice little sampling of SOME of the sentiments in the set with the different types of ways to stamp the banner. :) I also added the medium scallop border die on this last card as it created a perfect little border panel.

And all of the cards nestled in their pretty home. :)


Love it right?!? Good gosh, I sure do!!! And just to let you know real quick, here are all of the elements included in the Emma's Shoppe Card Kit:

10 Choice Buttercream Cardstock A-2 card bases
10 A-2 envelopes
15 sheets of patterned paper sized for cardmaking at 4" x 6" (3 sheets each of 5 double-sided patterns from the Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe collection)
20 sheets of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cardstock (4 sheets each of 5 colors)
