Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 1

Taylored Expressions has done it again with another round of fabulous stamp sets and today I'm giving you a sneak peek of Fresh Flowers. This set is perfect for birthdays, thank you notes, love notes, and of course Mother's Day cards and that is what I'm showcasing today. This card is made with paper and ribbon included in the Mother's Day Key Ingredients Kit, available April 5th for purchase at Taylored Expressions. I absolutely love the patterned paper included with this kit - it is thick, textured, double-sided, and it's the Blue Hill collection from Crate Paper - De-Lish! I also included some rhinestones to the card to give it some bling (mother's like bling, right?).
Here's some exciting news! Taylored Expressions is having a JustRite inventory blow out -- JustRite is discontinuing all of their self-inking stampers! They are also discontinuing their Oval Stamper I Ensemble, Birthday Stamp Ensemble, and Oval Stamper I Blister Pack. Taylored Expressions is offering a 30% discount on these items as long as quantities last. Also, starting Sunday, my beloved Nestabilities from Spellbinders will also be in stock at Taylored Expressions! Woo hoo!
Now stop on by the rest of the Baker's Dozen to see what they've cooked up for you today!
