Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 3

Today the Baker's Dozen has three new sets to share: Kid at Heart, Sweet Friends, and A Little Love. All the new products will be available at Taylored Expressions tomorrow, Friday, January 7th at 8am PST.

Let's start with Kid at Heart, shall we? This is a fun set with sweet little images that remind me of childhood toys. All Taylored Expressions stamp sets are made of high quality rubber so these bold images stamp beautifully. There's also a frame image that coordinates with the Take Note Die 3.

As soon as I saw the set I knew I had to use the airplane...and I'm pretty sure that came as no surprise to the rest of the Baker's Dozen! LOL!! I decided to whip up a little Valentine treat box for hubby and I knew the test tubes would be the perfect starting point.

All I did was make a box to fit around 5 test tubes, using papers and embellishments from the Valentine Project Pantry. I stamped the frame image with Colorbox pink pastel and cut it out with the Take Note die 3. Then I used my stamp-a-majig to place the sentiment and stamped the airplane with Colorbox Warm Red. The plane is cut out and popped on foam tape. My medium scallop border die came in handy to create the decorative scallop edge and I added clear rhinestones (from my stash) for a little bling. Finally I finished the box with a perfect little bow, thanks to my bow easy, and a heart pin from the Valentine Project Pantry.

Next up is Sweet Friends. This set is full of sweet little friends for Cuppie to hang out with in the bake shop. And the sentiments are perfectly adorable too!

I used my Make a Wish project pantry to create a fun birthday card to add to my stash. I started by stamping the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black onto orange cardstock then cut it out with my new Frame It Up die. I adore the size and shape of this die...it's so versatile!!! Then I stamped the cake, coloured it with copics and cut it out. The flower is popped for a little dimension and I added a Twinkle to the center, then gave the icing some sparkle with a little glitter. The patterned paper is pretty busy so I opted not to add other embellishments, aside from the pleated ribbon.


Now let's go see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen created with these new sets.


See you tomorrow for release day!
Thanks for stopping by!
