Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks Day 2

Today we're continuing with the baby theme with two sweet new set, Baby Cakes and Bringing Home Baby. I'm showing Bringing Home Baby, illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line. All the new products will be available at Taylored Expressions on Thursday, May 5th from 8am PST. 

You'll find a wonderful variety of images, perfect for cards or personalizing a home decor or gift item. As with all TE stamps, this set is made from deeply etched red rubber and comes already trimmed, ready to pop onto an acrylic block and start stamping.

I went with a card and used TESC137 for the layout. The carriage was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream and coloured with copics. Then I decided to paper piece parts of it using the polka dot pattern from the Alphabet Soup Girl Projec Pantry. The main panel was cut out with oval Nestabilities then I traced and stitched around the edge.

I used my medium scallop border die to create the three scalloped layers on the left and dotted it with pearls. I finished the bow with a pretty mini rose and added the fun banner sentiment along the bottom of the image.

Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen created with Bringing Home Baby and Baby Cakes.


Thanks for stopping by!
Karen
