Taylored Expressions Release Day!

Today's the day when all the new stamps, project pantry kits and dies are available at Taylored Expressions! But before you rush off to fill your cart with goodies, the Baker's Dozen has a round-up of all the sets for this release.

I made a delish Christmas card with Merry Little Christmas and paired it with the Snow Day Project Pantry. I love all the drinks in this set...so fun!!!

I stamped the martini with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured it with copics. Then I coated the glass with my clear Glaze pen for a glassy look. The image is cut out with circle Nestabilities and layered onto a scalloped circle. I stamped the sentiment onto purple before running that layer through my embossing folder. I stitched the patterned paper then added a strip of ribbon. The focal image is popped on foam tape and I added two clear rhinestones for some sparkle.

You'll get plenty of ideas and inspiration using all the new sets as you hop along to the rest of the Baker's Dozen today. Happy hopping!
and Nancy McKinney our illustrator extraorinaire
