TE December Sneak Peeks Day 2:

I'm a Hugger by Jen Shults

Hi everyone! I’m back with day two of Taylored Expressions December Sneak Peeks! All of the goodies you’ll see today will be available Thursday at 7 am PST in the Taylored Expressions store!

Today I have three fun projects for you! My first project uses my favorite stamp set from this release: Lookin’ Sharp Stamp & Die Combo! I just LOVE these little cactus stamps!!

I kept my first card pretty clean and simple letting the stamp and the embossing folder do all the work. 🙂


Card Details:

I used these adorable stamps a second time to create little treat matchbooks filled with Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Raspberry squares.

It was TOUGH keeping everyone’s hands off the chocolate while I was putting these together. I created a simple matchbook from cardstock and added the die cut stamps and sentiment. These would be very quick to mass produce if the coloring on the images was simplified!

I added a circle of scrap cardstock from Rainbow Brights 6×6 Paper Pack behind the images and heat embossed the sentiment on Earl Grey carstock.

My last card today uses the new Birds and the Bees stamp set and coordinating dies. I also used the new colors of TE inks to create a sunset in the background behind the adorable birdies.

These birds fit perfectly on the On a Limb Branches and On a Limb Leaves dies that were previously release!


I colored up the birds with Copics on TE’s Sugar Cube cardstock and die cut them with their coordinating dies. To add a bit of sparkle to the finished card I added some Stardust Stickles to the hearts.
