Your Next Stamp April Release Sneak Peek!

12:00 AM 1 Comments

Hello!  Tomorrow is new release day at Your Next Stamp and today the DT is sharing some sneak peeks!  I made a fun little tag using two of the new dies-the Flower Fun Two Die Set and the Stitched Fishtail Tags Two!  Don't you love these fabulous shapes?!  For my flower, I cut it out twice with Black and then Pink cs.  I adhered the flower to white cs and then cut it out.  Now that I look at it, I probably should have adhered it to black cs LOL!  The sentiment comes from the YNS set Mommy to Be and I stamped it onto a YNS Fishtail/Banner Die.  

Check out the Your Next Stamp Blog for a list of designers who have peeks for you today:)  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month!

10:06 AM 0 Comments

Hello!  I'm back with another card that I made with this month's Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month stamp set called Made With Love! I also used the coordinating die set called Stitched With Love!

I am having so much fun with this stamp and die set! For my card today I used the Deconstructed Sketch #146 (LOVE Jen's sketches!!!) along with some Doodlebug Sugar Shop dp.  I cut the fishtails with a Banner Stacklets 1 Die and cut the buttons out of some chipboard and then some dp which I adhered to the top. The sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. 


That's it for me!  We are going to paint our bedroom today (again!)  I just got some new bedding which of course calls for new colors:)  My hubby is thrilled LOL!  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Easter weekend!

Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

10:00 AM 4 Comments

Hello!  It's time for the Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! I LOVE this month's adorable stamp set called Made With Love and the coordinating die set called Stitched With Love!  So fun!  I am also loving the colors in this month's Key Ingredients Kit which contains dp from the Carta Bella Sew Lovely Collection.

For my card today, I used the Stitched With Love die set to cut out this gorgeous sewing machine.  I stamped the spool of thread and cut it out so I could pop it up with Foam Tape.  The Sew Lovely sentiment and the stitching were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and I used Copics for coloring. I had to add some stitching and I also used the Lace Chain Border Die to cut the pretty border.  The layout is the Deconstructed Sketch #145



The rest of the Baker's Dozen and Key Ingredients DT have inspirational projects to share with you today, so make sure you hop along and check them out!  I can't wait to see what they came up with:)

The Baker's Dozen each have one more project to share with you today:)  My card uses the new Care and Comfort II stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black and cut it out with a Banner Stacklets 2 Die.  I then stamped a silhouette from the TE set Discover Your Wings over the sentiment.  The pretty bow was cut out of Sunflower Taylored Felt with the new Mini Mix and Match Bows Dies-love them! I used Simple Stories A Charmed Life dp and the layout is The Deconstructed Sketch #140. The base of the card was cut with a Bloomin' Stacklets 2 Die.


I used another sentiment from Care and Comfort II on the inside of the card and once again stamped the silhouette from Discover Your Wings.
