Let the Sneak Peeks Begin! It’s Release Week at Taylored Expressions and we have so many new things to show you!  We have inspiration to share Tuesday through Friday.  All of the new products will be available for purchase on Thursday, November 8th at 8 am PST. You’ll find it all in the Fresh out of the Oven Department at the Taylored Expressions Store.
The set I am sharing today is called In the Word.  It is a full-size set in the Lasting Impressions collection and it coordinates with the Bookmark Die.  When TE first came out with Mark Your Spot and the Bookmark Die a few months ago, I was excited to play with them.  The first thing that came to mind as I did, was how great it would be to have a Bible verse set to go with the bookmark die.  I immediately imagined making up little gifts and favors for friends and co-workers with it.  I sent of a quick e-mail to Taylor asking if we could have such a set and she said YES!  I absolutley ADORE this set.  I love the variety of fonts and flourishes making these verses perfect for bookmarks, as well as focal points on cards and framed art.  Here’s my first project with this set.
I wanted to start with a really simple bookmark that could easily be re-created and even mass-produced. Here’s a close-up:
Here’s what I did to create this:
  • Die cut the bookmark twice – once out of TE Choice Snow white cardstock and once out of a dark blue cs to use as the backer.
  • Sponged color on the white bookmark.  I used my very favorite sponging color combo: So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Cameo Coral, Regal Rose.
  • Stamped the verse and the flourish images.
  • Covered the whole bookmark in Versamark ink and het embossed with UTEE.  It gives a super shiny and pebbled finish.
  • Attached the backer and the ribbon.  Added the flower embellishment.
This was super simple and would look great in a variety of color combos.  There’s lots and lots to see today, so let’s check out what the Baker’s Dozen has cooked up:
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to get out and vote today!
