I have a little sneak peek at a new set called Royal Digs, which is the next Adorable Adobe set illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Appledoodle Ink line of stamps.  All of the Taylored Expressions stamps are made of cling mount rubber and each set is stored on its own full color inspiration panel and 4 sets will fit in the Mini Binder Box for easy storage and accessibility.

I decided to make a cute little wedding or anniversary card and used this Got Sketch layout for my 5x5 card.  The castle and sentiment are both stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and I decided to keep the image simple and just have it sort of in the background on a sheet of Miss Caroline Dolled Up paper.  I added some dreamy clouds using the Cloud Duo Die and the big puffy cloud the castle sits on is made from the Clouds Border Die, so very Jack and the Beanstalk.  I also used some new dies - the crowns are from the Royal Treatment Dies, which is a set of 5 different crown dies, and then the fun crown border is the Majestic Border Die.  The twinkling stars in the sky are actually the star cut-outs from the Majestic Border Die.

There is plenty more to see today!  Please stop by and see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen have whipped up for you.
Here are the Taylored Dies I used on today's project:



Thanks so much for stopping by!
