Happy Monday!  Did you see Taylor’s news on Friday?  I am over the moon with excitement for her and Jon!  And to add to that excitement, Taylored Expressions has a new release coming this Thursday at 8 am – a large portion of it dedicated to everything baby!  You can see in the graphic above a list of everything being peeked today by the Baker’s Dozen.  The main thing is a full-sized set called Welcome Little One designed and illustrated by Taylor herself.  I know she’s been looking forward to designing her own baby set for a long time and I couldn’t be happier to play along in the peeks today!  Here’s the card I created featuring Welcome Little One.

I know that Taylor’s idea for the set was a little more of a clean graphic style, but i just couldn’t help but channel our friend Melissa just a little bit when I was working on this card.  Designer Paper is by Girls Paperie.  Along with Welcome Little One, I incorporated Hangin’ Out (the pennant image) and the brand new You’re My Type – Upper.  The 4 images on the focal panel are separate so you can configure them in lots of different ways.  I put the 4 stamps on 1 block and stamped them in Kiwi Kiss ink.  After rounding the corners with my Corner Chomper and sponging a little ink to age it a bit, I covered the entire panel in Versamark and heat embossed with 2 layers of clear embossing powder.  Here’s a close up:

Hopefully you can get an idea of how shiny it is IRL.  I used Want 2 Scrap Baby Bling all around the edge of the Labels 1 Nestie die cut mat. I pulled the flowers from my Primas collection and added a new Websters Pages Whimsy to the center, plus I added Smooch Illuminate to the flowers for some sparkle.

Welcome Little One is the next stamp set in the TE Giving Tree Program which supports various charities for 3 months at a time.  For the months of May, June and July when you purchase this set you’ll be helping to support Bethany Christian Services, the nation’s largest adoption agency. BCS also cares for women facing unplanned pregnancies as well as orphans living on 5 continents. Their comprehensive services include adoption, temporary foster care, counseling, training, and family support knowing that children thrive in safe, loving, and strong families. Taylored Expressions will donate $7.00 to Bethany Christian Services for each Welcome Little One  stamp set sold in the next 3 months.  I’d encourage you to check out this wonderful charity!

This set (along with the companion A la Carte stamps and dies) are designed to have so many possibilities!  I can hardly wait to see what the Baker’s Dozen has cooked up today!
