Hi everyone! Sorry I’m a bit tardy with my post this morning. My plans to type this up before work were foiled by a bit of wet grass, a curb and 8 stitches in my right knee. 🙁 But better late than never, yes? AND I have some amazing new Taylored Expressions stamps to share with you that I just adore. I hope you’ll love them too.
So first up is the brand new and SO GORGEOUS Calla Lily Bouquet. I LOVE this stamp and this card just happens to be the cards I’m giving to my husband for our wedding anniversary in April. We had white calla lilies and navy blue tulips as our wedding flowers and this stamp is perfect to represent that.
I used Pebbles Seen and Noted paper pad for this card on a Choice Snow White Cardstock base. My layout is based on SSSC177. My lilies are colored with Prismacolor colored pencils and a bit of OMS for blending. I used the Designer Mini Tag die for the sentiment and the little banner at the top is die cut using Banner Stacklets 1. I used a bit of foam tape to separate my layers and twine thread as an accent.
For my second card I used one of the new Graphic Greetings stamps – Graphic Greetings Egg Hunt and I also used the new Easter Doodles set as an accent.
To start my card off I used one of my favorite older Deconstructed Sketches, DS63 and a bit of designer paper from MME’s The Sweetest Thing Tangerine paper pad. I stamped the Graphic Greetings stamp on pink cardstock using Frost White Color Box ink and heat embossed it using white embossing powder. I then stamped and die cut the bunny from Easter Doodles and colored it with Copics. The sentiment stamped off to the side is also from the Easter Doodles set. I finished the card off with a bit of twine thread and some foam tape to separate some of the layers. 🙂
Well that’s it for me today but the rest of the Baker’s Dozen team has a TON of new stuff to show you so be sure to hop around and check out what they have been up to!
