Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 1

I have a lot of information for you today and you are not going to want to miss a beat, so please be sure to read my entire post today and you'll have a chance to win a brand new TE set! Are you ready to see some absolutely amazing new stamps from Taylored Expressions? I'm so very excited to show off the first of 3 new sets available for purchase on December 4th! Discover Your Wings, designed by Nancy McKinney, is the next set to be part of the TE Giving Tree Program - every three months Taylored Expressions designs a new stamp set to support a charity for 3 months after the release. I love taking the opportunity to help different charities through the purchase of a stamp set - it is helping others while supporting a hobby I love. For this release, $7 will be donated to Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep for every Discover Your Wings set purchased. The Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation is a charity that administers a network of almost 7000 photographers in the US and 25 other countries who volunteer their time to gently provide a helping hand and healing heart to families who have suffered the loss of an infant by offering gentle and beautiful photography services in a compassionate and sensitive manner. NILMDTS is there for parents and families to help them in their healing, bring hope to their future, and to honor their child. They believe that it is through remembrance that a family can truly begin to heal. Taylored Expressions is honored to help support the work of this wonderful charity. I encourage you to go to their website and learn more about their wonderful work.


I started by stamping the flower silhouettes in Rich Razzleberry and sponged the edges with Crushed Curry ink. The butterfly is stamped in Melon Mambo and popped up on a dimensional. I used MOJO115 for the sketch.

Come blog hoppin' with me to see what the Baker's Dozen girls have cooked up with Discover Your Wings today.

  7. I love this card Karen. I have a long drive to and from work every day, so I do a lot of thinking during this time. Last night I was thinking of ways to use my Razzleberry designer paper and here you have a gorgeous card using it.
    Thanks for the inspiration.
