It’s Day 2 of the January Sneak Peeks for Taylored Expressions and I’m excited to play along with the Baker’s Dozen today.  I think this may be the BIGGEST TE release ever and I know you wan’t want to miss a thing!  Everything being shown this week will be available in the TE Store Friday morning at 8 am PST.


Today we’re showing you 4 new Petite stamp sets.  Those adorable Apple Doodle Ink Penguins are back in 3 different Valentine sets and several of the girls will be featuring them.  The 4th Petite set is called Wreath of Love and I’m especially excited because this is one of my concepts amazingly brought to life by Nancy McKinney in the Whimsical Wishes line.  I thought it would be fun to have a wreath die and lots of seasonal wreaths to all fit in the one die.  So we’re starting off this month with an adorable heart wreath that’s perfect for Valentine’s Day or to express love year-round.  And to coordinate is the Seasonal Wreath Die and the Basic Bow Die too!  I have 2 projects to share today.  I have to apologize for the photos – had to take them late in the evening and struggled with getting decent lighting.  ETA: I’ve retaken the photos outside – although it’s quite dreary out, so not sure how much better they are.

My first project is a very simple tag.  I stamped the wreath in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and die cut it with the wreath die before coloring it with copics.  The wreath was layered onto a Spellbinders Label 9 and I highlighted the hearts in the wreath by covering them with Ranger Glossy Accents.  The papers I used are from the MME Fine & Dandy Tickled Pink collection.  I used the butterfly dies introduced yesterday to accent my wreath.  They work wonderfully with patterned paper – I didn’t even stamp them first.  I used the Basic Bow die at the bottom of the tag, but it also looks great on the wreath itself!

My second project is a mostly-white card…so not typical for me and yet it was the first thing I wanted to make when I got the staamps and die.  It has been floating around in my head and I’m honestly just tickled with how it turned out.  Aren’t those little birds so cute?  I always love it when Nancy does birds!

The TE Choice White Cardstock is the perfect weight for a card base.  I scored a frame with my Scor-Pal and added some sticky tape and StarFire glitter around 3 sides.  That adorable little heart border is another new die!  Isn’t that fun?  The wreath was stamped, die cut, colored with copics and Smooch and popped up on foam dots.  Really – thinking about this card probably took more time than actually making it!

Let’s see what the Baker’s Dozen has cooked up today!
