Taylored Expressions is bursting at the seams with so much sweet rubber that we couldn’t fit it all in the regular monthly release.  I’m super excited to get to play along with the Baker’s Dozen today as we reveal 3 new stamp sets – Labels of Love, You’re My Type – Upper and You’re My Type Lower.  And as if that weren’t enough, you are going to LOVE the fact that these new sets are designed to coordinate with Spellbinders Dies!  Everything we are showing you is available NOW in the TE Store – no waiting!!

We also want to take this opportunity to express a HUGE thank you to Spellbinders who generously provided our team withh Grand Calibur Die Cutting Machines.  WOW!!  The large format of this machine makes it perfect for the Grand size dies as well as running multiple dies for a project through all at the same time.

My sample today is a set of cards that showcases the brand new stamp set Labels of Love designed by Taylor Van Bruggen as part of the *te* Collection of stamps.  Labels of Love coordinates perfectly with Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio Three die set.  It includes a whopping 31 images (7 frames, 6 flourishes, and 18 sentiments.)  I really think that once you get your crafty little hands on this set, it’s going to be left out on your stamping table as your go-to set for sentiments!  Click here to purchase the Labels of Love Bundle including the matching dies.

To get started today I pulled out the Emma’s Shoppe Taylored Card Kit and played with it until I got the papers and cardstocks I wanted to work with for this set.


There are so many choices in these TE Card Kits, that I like to narrow them down a bit before I start even though I do sometimes change my mind as I go along. After making a set of 6 cards, I stillhave tons of materials left and am anxious to see what else I can create.  Using this kit and Labels of Love, here’s the card set I came up with. Click on any photo to see it larger.

There are 2 basic designs, with 3 of each of those (with some variations.)   I used 2 different frames from Labels of Love along with several different sentiments that fit in those frames – Just a Note, With Love, Missing You, Thanks so much!

For the top set above I let the fame and sentiment be the focal point.  These cards would be super quick to make in multiples for gift sets.  On both designs I used the large Scallop Border Taylored Die.

For the top set in the above photo I layered Spellbinders Labels 18 (red) on top of Labels 13 (yellow), then stamped a focal image and punched it with 1 3/4″ circle punch and layered that on top.  I love the look of layering different shapes like this – such a simple technique to add a little pizazz!  Focal points were stamped from Branching Out, Fresh Flowers and CreativiTea and colored with copics (tea cup was paper-pieced.)

This set is also for the TE Card Kit Challenge I posted in the Taylored Expressions Forum.  Have you purchased either the Emma’s Shoppe or Hello Luscious Card Kit?  If you haven’t, you still have time.  You have through April 29th to show us your card set (4 cards or more) made from either kit and be entered to win the TE stamp set of your choice!  It’s easy and it’s fun and you’ll end up with a wonderful gift for Mother’s Day or Teacher Appreciation or an upcoming birthday,  Or maybe you just need a stash of birthday or thank you cards.  Come play with us!

The Baker’s Dozen will have lots more samples of Labels of Love as well as the two new Alphabet sets You’re My Type Upper and Lower.  Let’s go check it out!

One more piece of news you’ll want to know – TE has the brand new Spellbinders Nested Pennants Dies and Lacey Pennants Dies available  at 30% OFF while supplies last…that’s only $13.99 a set….WOWZAS!!!  Get ’em while you can!

Thanks for stopping by.
