Taylored Expressions Release Day!

Hip Hip Hooray!!! It's Release Day!!!! I know you've all been waiting for today to head over and fill your cart at Taylored Expressions, but the Baker's Dozen has a few more samples to share today, using more of the Stamps A la Carte - Animals in Love and Animal Love Sentiments.

My first card uses the sssssssssssssweet Snakes and papers from my August 20th Key Ingredients.
I'm not sure what colour snakes should be (I don't get close enough to them to find out!) but I went with pink for the girl and yellow for the boy...I think they're a cute pair in these colours! The heart is coated with my clear Glaze pen, and I have to say, I opened a new pen and wowzers, is it flowing well!!! This was only one coat! The layout for this card is my go-to layout when I'm stumped for a layout or not feeling particularly creative, but I really like how it works with the Snakes. And the sentiment from Animal Love Sentiments fit perfectly too!

This next card using the adorable Dogs...LOVE them! They totally remind me of my sweet Mini Schnauzer Shadow.
All the papers are from my Valentine's Key Ingredients for this card. The image is coloured with copics and I used my clear Glaze pen again on the heart. I can't seem to put that thing down! I ran the striped paper through my Swis Dots Cuttlebug folder then gave it a light sanding to reveal the white core.

I coloured the two chipboard hearts with copics then covered the red one with glitter before adhering the blue one. Doesn't it look like suede? Three Tiny Twinkles finished the other side of the sentiment perfectly.

I have a rule when it comes to coloring stamps....images don't have to be the colors they are in real life....and frankly I could care less what color snakes are because they are disgusting....There you have it....coloring rule by Jacks, SNORT!

Love your cards, Saucy, especially the Ca-Yute puppies!!!
