We had a WONDERFUL little vacation last week and I’ll try to get back with more about that later, but now it’s time to kick off April Sneak Peeks for Taylored Expressions and I’m excited to play along.  Today we are showcasing two full-sized rubber stamp sets – Treasure Life and Dream Big – along with an A la Carte stamp, the new Stars Impression Plate and a new Taylored Die Set to coordinate with Treasure Life.

My sample today features both Treasure Life and the Apothecary Shelf A  la Carte Stamp (sold separately).

 I took copic markers on vacation with me and this is one of the images I colored while we were gone.  I decided to keep the 5.25″ square card fairly simple to just show off the stamped images.  The little “cloth” hanging over the front of the shelf was cut with a scallop rectangle Nestability and I inked the edges with Not Quite Navy ink on a sponge.

Here are the copics I used:

BG70 worked great to outline/highlight the glass of the jars.  To be honest I had intended to cover all the jars with Glossy Accents, but I needed to take the photo while I still had daylight and just didn’t have time to allow for it to dry.  But I’m happy with it as is.  🙂

Treasure Life includes 7 different jar images of varying shapes and size, plus it has several different “fillers” to play with.  One of my favorite fillers is the blob of balls (yes, that’s a technical term!) that you see in my middle jar.  Those balls could be so many different things!  To make them fit perfectly in any of the jars, you can just simply cut a reverse mask to fit around the jar and then stamp the *blob* right over it.  While I was playing with the set I went ahead and cut masks and reverse masks (at the same time) for most of the images, so now I’ll have them any time I want to use the set.

Here I have them just stuck onto the original plastic that the set came packaged in.  You can see that the one in the upper left hand corner is the one that got the *blob* stamped over it.  I hope that makes sense.

Beyond the pretty images in this stamp set, there are also sentiments for several ocassions all in a beautiful font combo.  Plus there is a new Taylored Die set to coordinate that will die cut 4 of the jars for you.  Cool, huh?  I’m anxious to play with those, but alas I didn’t have my Big Shot in the 5th wheel on our trip.  LOL!

Let’s check out what the Baker’s Dozen has cooked up today:

Everything being showcased today will be available in the TE Store on Thursday morning at 8 am PST.  Full sets will be revealed on the TE Facebook page sometime Wednesday night – so make sure you’ve clicked “like” over there!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you have a fantastic day and enjoy the hop!
