My first card today, features Make it Amazing - a full size stamp set of 19 images and sentiments, illustrated by the very fabulous Nancy McKinny for the Whimsical Wishes line.  The set is full of beautiful butterflies, flower, and greenery and there are even coordinating Taylored Dies!



I used the Twiggy Branch Die and the Frame it Up 3 Die here on my card.  I've also used one of the new Fancy Buckles Dies and tied a bow around the center of it.  All of the papers and ribbons are from the London Market Project Pantry Kit, which gives you all the basics you need to create beautiful cards using the London Market 6x6 paper pack and coordinating cardstock and ribbon.  Please hop on over to Taylor's blog for all of the specific details and photos.

Next up is Fruity Friends, which is a full size stamp set of 20 images and sentiments and our very own Wanda Guess who came up with the idea.  Fruity Friends is illustrated by Emily Burger for the Embracing Grace line.



I stamped the peach in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic Markers.  I used the Medium Scallop Border Die to create the scallop rainbow and the layout is Clean & Simple Stamping's FTL184.

Be sure to stop and see the rest of the Baker's Dozen today:
     Here are the Taylored Dies and Copic markers I used on today's projects:
