Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day One!


Hi there and welcome to the first day of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions!  Today the Baker's Dozen has samples from two new sets, Spring Wreath Petite Stamp set and It's a Banner Day 2 with coordinating Banner Day 2 die, plus the new Spring A la Carte stamp!  There is so much to see so I'll get right to it!


My sample here uses the new Spring Wreath Petite set.  This set is the 3rd in the seasonal wreath series concepted by Jami Sibley and beautifully illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes Line.  It's a set of 7 stamps consisting of 5 images and 2 sentiments on deeply etched red rubber mounted on EZ Mount already trimmed and ready to use.  This set also coordinates with the Taylored Dies Seasonal Wreath and Basic Bow.

I used the adorable whimsical flower from the set paired with the three stem image from Friendship Blooms.  The flowers were colored with Copics and Copic Spica Glitter pens, cut out and popped up for dimension.  All of the patterned paper, cardstock and brads are from the Spring Project Pantry Kit.  I am in love with these fun bright papers!!  The sentiment is from It's a Banner Day 1.  The banner was stamped in Berrylicious Fluid Chalk Ink and cut out with the coordinating It's a Banner Day 1 die.  Some machine stitching finishes it off.




My next sample uses the new It's a Banner Day 2 and coordinating Banner Day 2 die.  It is the.
2nd set in the It's a Banner Day series concepted by Iwona Palamountain (Chupa) and illustrated by Taylor for the TE Line.  It is a set of 9 images (3 banners and 6 sentiments) made from deeply etched red rubber mounted on EZ Mount.  It coordinates with the new Banner Day 2 die.

My sample today uses It's a Banner Day 2 paired with a flower from an Easter set from last year, Favorite Peeps.  Again, all of the patterned papers, ribbon and cardstock are from the Spring Project Pantry Kit.  The flower was colored with Copics, cut out and popped up on foam tape.  I actually cut a little window in the patterned paper to frame the flower.  The banner was stamped in Berrylicious Fluid Chalk Ink and cut out with the coordinating Banner Day 2 die.  Some ribbon and machine stitching finish it off.


It's time to hop around to see what the other girls have cooked up with today's sets:


Thanks for stopping by!
