Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks Day 3

Welcome to day 3 of sneak peeks with Taylored Expressions. We have two more great sets to share today and all the new products will be available in the TE Store starting tomorrow, Thursday, March 3rd at 8am PST.

As you hop along you'll see samples using A Tweet For You and the Pennant a la carte stamp and coordinating pennant die. And you might just see some of the previously "peeked" sets popping into the Baker's Dozen creations too. I know I used a couple on my projects.

Let's start with A Tweet For You. This mini set is part of the *te* collection and is the third in the favour/tags series. You might recall Fright Night Favours and Tag You're It from previous releases, and like those sets, A Tweet For You coordinates with the Favour Frame die.

When I was first looking at this set I thought "hey, the frames look like just about the right size to wrap around a Hershey Nugget". So I gave it a try and they fit perfectly on the address labels used to wrap the nuggets. Sweet!!! It made for a really quick way to decorate these tasty treats.

Then I put the chocolates into a mini pail and set to work decorating that. I used supplies from the Spring Project Pantry and cut out the scalloped strip with my small scallop border die. I jazzed up the tag with the flower from Spring Wreath...it was so fun to colour! This really was a quick little gifty item to whip up!

Next I have a card using the new Pennant a la carte set and the pennant die, which are illustrated by Nancy McKinney as part of the Whimsical Wishes line.

The Pennant stamp includes both a solid and a polka dot image. The coordinating die can be used either with the stamp or on it's own with patterned paper. I used it both ways on my card.  :-)

I also used an image and sentiment from Hello Spring. It's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto choice buttercream and coloured with copics. Then I cut it out with square Nestabilities and layered it onto a lacey square...love!! The rhinestones were coloured with copics to coordinate.

The patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Stella Rose Hazel collection. I added a medium scallop border of blush red light and some brown polka dot ribbon. I just love all the fun polka dots on this card!

Now it's time to keep hopping around for even more inspiring sneak peeks from the rest of the Baker's Dozen.


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