Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 2

Today the Baker's Dozen has two more fun new stamp sets to share, Fashionista and Wreath of Luck. All the new products will be available at Taylored Expressions on Friday, February 4th at 8am PST.

Let's start with Fashionista. This set is chock full of fun images and sentiments for the diva in your life.

I made a birthday card and I know exactly who this one is going to...I won't say here though just in case she's reading. I stamped the shoes and boxes with Memento Tuxedo Black onto choice buttercream and coloured them with copics. I added sparkle with a Spica glitter pen and a crystal Twinkle. Note the red-bottomed shoe...totally stylin'! I used my Take Note 3 die to cut out the curvy shape before running it through my swiss dots embossing folder, then I adhered the image with foam tape.

The patterned papers are from the KI Memories Paisley Parade collection. I used my small scalloped border die on some suede brown dark then dotted it with more Twinkles. Plenty of stitching is the perfect finishing touch. The layout is SC315.

Next up is Wreath of Luck, the second mini set in the wreath series, which coordinates with the seasonal wreath die that was released last month. I used products from the Lucky Sampler to create this little favour bag.

I chose to use the hat image instead of the wreath and I coloured it up with plenty of shades of green. The hat buckle is all sparkly thanks to my pitch black Spica pen. I stamped the shamrock image with Memento Cottage Ivy all over the little bag and added two green sparkly candy dots. Inside is a cello bag filled with Hershey Kisses...yum!

I can't wait to see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen cooked up with Fashionista and Wreath of Luck!

SO cute, Karen! I just went onto Melissa's blog and called her Karen, so maybe I should call you Melissa to make up for it, LOL. Seriously, though, I love your bright Fashionista colors and the hat on the gift bag is darling! XOXO
