Welcome to Day #1 of sneak peeks for the Taylored Expressions September Release!  I’m super excited to be playing along with the Baker’s Dozen today as we have peeks for two full sized stamp sets – Make a Wish and Borderlicious, plus a new backgrounder – Bubbles Big Background all illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line.  In addition, we have a fantastic Project Pantry kit (patterned paper, cardstock, ribbon, and more) that is perfect for birthdays and celebrations.  And if all that weren’t enough there are two new sets of Taylored Dies being shown today.  And this is just Day #1!  WOW!!

We’ll have peeks today, Wednesday and Thursday.  Everything will be available for purchase on Friday morning at 8:00 am PST as we celebrate TE’s 2nd birthday with a big Birthday Bash!  You’ll want to check in every day this week so you don’t miss anything!

And now on to my sample for today which features Make a Wish.  I love the show Ace of Cakes and the Food Network Challenge make-a-wish-sun-jami-custom.jpgfor themed and extreme cakes (I can’t stand the Cake Boss, but I digress) so I was immediately drawn to this topsy-turvey cake image.  Isn’t it fun?  This is the quintessential birthday stamp set that everyone needs!  It also includes balloons and banners and plenty of birthday sentiments.

And to make this set even sweeter, it is the newest in the TE Giving Tree program which donates partial proceeds from a different stamp set each quarter to a chosen charity.  For the months of September, October and November Taylored Expressions will donate $7 from the sale of each Make a Wish stamp set to the Make a Wish Foundation. Their mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.  What could be better than getting super cute new stamps and supporting a wonderful charity all at the same time?

All of the papers, cardstock and ribbon on my card are from the Make a Wish Project Pantry kit.  The cake was colored with Copic markers and then I added lots of stickles so it is super sparkly in person!  I cut my cardbase a little narrower than usual so I would have room for the border piece I punched with the Martha Stewart picket fence punch.  Then I added a boatload of Taylor’s Tiny Twinkles to the fence!  Spellbinders die is Curved Rectangle and I added some doodles with a chocolate Spica glitter pen.

I decorated the inside of the card with more images from Make a Wish.


Now it’s time to go for a hop to see what the rest of the Baker’s Dozen has cooked up for today.

A huge welcome to the new Baker’s Dozen members –

Also joining today is Whimsical Wishes illustrator

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I’ll be back tomorrow with something I’m especially excited about!  *GRIN*  Hope to see you tomorrow!
