Taylored Expressions January Sneak Peek Day 1!


Hello!  You guys are in for such a treat with this month's Taylored Expressions release! The new sets are so fun and the new dies~SWOON!!!  I have had a blast making my projects:)

Today I get to share a peek of the new super cute addition to the Apple Doodle Ink line of stamps called Stuck on You!  ACK, these little hedgehogs are adorable and the set comes with so many fun sentiments.  There are a total of 12 stamps in this set~7 image stamps and 5 sentiments.  My daughter immediately asked if she could have this card for Valentine's Day:) 

I also used a couple of the new dies on this card.  The first one is called Love Tree Dies.  I used the tree from this die set and cut it out twice~once with brown cs and once with red cs.  I then cut all the hearts off the red tree and glued them to the brown tree:)  A little time consuming but so worth it!!!  The other die I used is the new set of  fishtail banner dies called Banner Stacklets 1!  Love them!  Here is a close up of this little fellow:


I used some Bo Bunny dp from the Valentine Project Pantry Kit!  Love it!

Next up I have a Notecard using another another new die called 3x3 Tuck and Close Notecard!  How perfect are these to create fun Valentines?  I kept this one pretty simple so it would be super easy to duplicate.  

I used several other new dies including the "love" which is from the Love Tree Dies set along with the FABULOUS new Hearts Cutting Plate!  I used the Hearts Cutting Plate to cut out a piece of red cs and a darker pink cs.  Then I used the Tuck and Close Notecard to cut the red one to the shape of the notecard.  I added some scattered hearts in a random pattern:


Here's a peek at the inside using the new Graphic Greetings Valentine stamp along with a sentiment from Stuck on You.  I also used another new die to cut out my hearts from the Cupid's Arrows Dies set.  So fun!


Make sure you check out the other peeks from the Baker's Dozen along with our amazing Guest this month~ Anna Wight!

I'll be back tomorrow for more peeks!  Happy hopping!
