It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions!

Two new sets are available today at Taylored Expressions...Doctor's Order and Boys Will Be Boys, along with the Father's Day Key Ingredients and a fabulous Boys Will Be Boys Bundle.


I thought I'd show you another card with the Boys Will Be Boys set. I LOVE this set...with all the boys/men in my family, it's absolutely perfect for several occasions. I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #16 for the layout. 


I stamped the ties with Memento Tuxedo Black twice onto Choice Buttercream. I cut out one of the images with square Nestabilities then coloured and cut out the individual ties and popped them for dimension. I decided to make the frame out of ribbon and I added some screw brads to the corners. 

For the sentiment, I stamped it first then cut it out with one of the shapes from the Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio, then I cut off the ribbon slide part and sanded the edges to round them a little. I like that it looks like a plaque under art work on a wall. 


All the papers, ribbon and screw brads are included in the Father's Day Key Ingredients

Check out the fabulous Boys Will Be Boys Bundle for your manly crafting needs! To see all the new products in one place, click on the Fresh Out of the Oven tab at Taylored Expressions.

Thanks for stopping by!
