Yep, after hardly blogging at all for the past two weeks I actually have two posts today!  And I’m excited about both of them.  This is post #2, so be sure to scroll down if you haven’t already seen my first post for today.  In this post I have not 1, not 2, but 3 cards to share with you!  No wonder I haven’t been blogging – I’ve been saving everything up for one day – LOL!

All three of the cards I have to show you feature elements from the Dazzled Key Ingredients Kit being released today at the Taylored Expressions Store.jami4-te-spring-dazzling-custom.jpg

There are four different kits being offered as part of the TE Spring Spectacular which debuts today.  These kits are in limited quantity and are an incredible steal at only $12.95 each!

My first card showcases My Mind’s Eye patterned papers, coordinating die cuts, solid color cardstocks plus ribbon all from the Dazzled Key Ingredients.  No stamping here at all – just a scrappy card.  The only things I added not included in the kit were a jumbo white brad and some liquid pearls.  The only punch used was my SU scallop border punch.  Easy-peasy 10 minute card.  Well…ok…did I actually make it in 10 minutes?  Probably not, but you could re-create it in less than 10 minutes!  LOL!

My second card is slightly larger than standard because I really wanted to use this fun frame die cut.  I thought it would be a great way to show off this cute Cuppie image from A Year of Sweets 2.


The image is colored with Copics and I just added some doodles and some Stickles for a sweet little scene.  This frame would also be super fun to create a shaker!

And here’s jami2-te-spring-dazzling-custom.jpgmy third card created with the Dazzled Kit.  The flower is a cardstock die cut and I covered it with Versamark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder to give it a thick shiny coating.  Again all the cardstock, patterned paper, die cut and ribbons are from the KI.  I added the sentiment from Branching Out punched with SU oval punches and some green and orange crystals.  The cardstock layer behind the flower was cut with a Spellbinders Label Two die.  One again super easy-peasy.


One of the super cool things about these kits is that each one comes with a full color sample sheet featuring cards created by the Baker’s Dozen girls, me and of course Taylor!  So you’ll have lots of ideas to spark your own creativity! To get all the details on these fun kits please check out Taylor’s blog.  And to see lots more samples let’s do a little blurfing: 

  • Charmaine Ikach
  • Dawn Easton
  • Jodi Collins
  • Karen Motz
  • Laura Fredrickson  
  • Sankari Wegman
  • Oh and in my earlier post today I said I’d give more details about the supplies used on my Kona card….well have you realized yet that the patterned paper, cardstock and ribbon are all from this same kit?  It was sitting out when I started my Kona card and seemed perfect.  Plus there’s so much there, I could make a ton more cards before running out of stuff.  Anyway, it didn’t dawn on me till later that I kind of cheated since the Kona post was going up before this one.  Oops!  Well, it just shows even more so how versatile these kits really can be!

    For those of you wondering about the pup in my post from a few days ago….she’s sitting in my lap as I type this.  More about her later.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
