Today we are previewing Love Grows Here, Life is a Dance, Moka Morgana, and Moka Katie!! I get the great pleasure of working with Love Grows Here designed by a brand new Taylored Expressions artist, Emily Burger and Live is a Dance illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line. All Taylored Expressions stamps are made of premium red rubber mounted on EZ Mount and are precut so they are ready to use the minute you get them. Taylored Expressions sets come on a full color plastic panel perfect for storage in a mini binder box.
First up is Love Grows Here, this full sized set of 18 images is just too adorable. I love the coordinating sets of images and sentiments and the whimsical feel to these fantastic stamps. For my card I started with a card base using Intense Pink cardstock and Echo Park’s Happy Days patterned paper. I stamped the image onto Choice Snow White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the image with Copics. I die cut the image using a Spellbinder’s Label 8 and traced around the inside of the die with a Sharpie pen. For the sentiment I again stamped the sentiment onto Snow White cardstock with Tuxedo Black in and cut it out with Spellbinder’s Classic Circle die and the pink border with a Spellbinder’s Blossom die. I cut the pink border panel (that hiding) with a Medium Scalloped Border die. I layered everything together and popped the sentiment up on foam tape.

For my second card today I used Life is a Dance designed by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line.
To start my card I used a kraft cardstock base and Echo Park’s Happy Day’s paper again. I LOVE this patterned paper… such different looks for two different cards from the same stack. I paper pieced the ballet dress and popped a second skirt up on foam tape after cutting the first layer out with a Spellbinder’s Classic Circle Large. I stamped the sentiment only Snow White Choice cardstock and cut it out using a Spellbinders Pennant die. I sponged everything with a bit of brown ink and then added some white, ribbon, twine and a few dots of Liquid Pearls in White Opal. Done! I LOVE how this card came out!! 🙂
Well, whew! That’s it’s for me today. It’s been a busy one! I hope you’ll be back around tomorrow to see what else we have in store for you and be sure to check out all the other lovelies the rest of the DT made for you!
