Happy Monday and welcome to Day #1 of Sneak Peeks for the Taylored Expressions October Release. Everything will be available for purchase on Thursday morning October 7th.  Until then put on your seat belts as you’re in for quite a ride!  Today I’m thrilled to be joining the Baker’s Dozen in offering up peeks of FOUR upcoming new stamp sets…yes I said FOUR and it’s only day #1!

The set I’m working with today is called Penguin Pals and anyone who knows me, knows this would be the first set I would reach for.  My very first rubber stamp images were of penguins and so may years later I am still drawn to them.  This set is the newest in the Apple Doodle Ink line at Taylored Expressions and I think you’ll find these little flightless fowl to be quite charming!

The layout I used for today’s card is the SCS Sketch Challenge (#300) and the patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather 6×6 pad.  To coordinate with that paper pad I also purchased the Mitten Weather cardstock pack at TE which takes the guess work out of trying to find good cs matches.  I added a little punch of black which I almost always like to do when using penguin images – seems to help focus attention on the cute little guys! Here’s the funny thing about coloring this image.  I really wanted to watercolor it (haven’t done that in awhile) so I stamped with black craft ink and heat embossed with clear powder on a white shimmer cs.  Then I proceeded to match up copic colors to my patterned paper and started to color.  Ummmm…what?  D’oh!  I totally forgot that I was going to watercolor!  What a dork!    Oh well!  This was a quick, easy image to color and I love how it turned out. (Copics: G82, G94, YG45, R14, R37, Y21, YR23, BG09)

For some added interest, I covered the lights with Ranger Glossy Accents, the star with yellow stickles and the white parts of the hat with white liquid applique and starfire glitter and puffed it up with the heat gun.

For those of you who are new to TE or have never purchased TE stamps, I wanted to mention that these stamps are the highest quality deeply etched rubber around.  Not only that, but they come already trimmed out and on EZ Mount so that when you receive them you can just slap them on an acrylic block and start stamping! They come on a 5.5″ x 8.5″ storage panel (think half sheet of cardstock size) which is larger than the sets that many companies offer and have a full color index on one side.

Penguin Pals has a total of 14 stamps (images and sentiments) and some sets with smaller images have as many as 22 stamps in a set.  At $21.95 per set you really can’t  beat that value!

Oh my goodness – there is going to be so much to see today!  Are you ready to hop?  Let’s go see what the Baker’s Dozen has cooked up today:

Thanks for stopping by.  I’d love to hear which set is your favorite of the 4 today!  Let me know what you think so far!


PS I apologize for the slightly weird layout of this post.  Ever since the big upgrade a couple of weeks ago I have been unable to get the text wrap to work correctly.  Crossing my fingers that this gets fixed soon.
