We are happy to introduce to you all a brand new illustrator!  Emily Burger has created the most adorable set full of trees for all seasons and holidays called Love Grows Here and it's part of the new Embracing Grace line of stamps.  All of Taylored Expressions stamps are made from deeply etched rubber, which is die cut for you and mounted on EZ Mount cling foam and ready to use with an acrylic block.  

Love Grows Here is a full set of 18 images, 7 of which are these amazing trees.  I started by stamping the heart tree image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Choice Buttercream cardstock and colored it with Copic markers.  I added a horizon line and then colored in the grass and drew the frame.  I can't stamp a tree and not use the Picket Fence Border Die, so I added that in Stella cardstock.  So cute!  The patterned papers are 6x6 Lost & Found Blush and the layout is Sweet Stop's SSS129.



Next up is another gorgeous stamp in the Moka line, illustrated by Nancy McKinney - meet Katie!  
I just ADORE this image - especially since I have a Katie in my house, who happens to love pink - so I made her a pink card with a Katie on it.  LOL!  I started with the layout from TESC148 and stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored her with Copics and paper pieced her clothing.  I used the Frame It Up 1 die as the main panel and then added a Small Scallop Border


Here are the dies I used in today's cards:



The rest of the Baker's Dozen have much more in store for you - please stop on by and see:
Thanks for stopping by!
