fabulous fall blog hop!

I'm excited to participate today in the Taylored Expressions Fabulous Fall Blog Hop! Taylor has put together some really sweet Key Ingredients Kits at an incredible discount. These kits are in limited quantity and slightly different from the regular KI's. For details see Taylor's blog post today. My cards today feature the Penelope's Potpourri Kit. It was fantastic to work with because the rub-ons are super thick and really pop on colored card stock. The papers are so fun and cute, not to mention they have some tulips, which are my all time favorite flowers! I love the assortment of ribbon included in this kit - each ribbon fully compliments the paper's pattern and color.

There are 4 kits available for a limited time: Penelope's Potpourri (which I'm showcasing today), Winnie's Walls, Paisley & Polka-Dots, and Morning Meadow and each kit is only $12.95!! Quantities are limited for these kits, so don't miss out on this exceptional deal.
Included in each kit is a full color inspiration sheet with 6 samples created by members of the Baker's Dozen - so not only will you have a great coordinated kit, you will have amazing samples and layouts to give you loads of inspiration.

All of my cards feature the glorious Penelope (SEI) Rub-ons and ribbon from the Penelope's Potpourri Key Ingredients and I love all the little flower accents included - In this card, I used the circular flowers to create a nice little border along the edge of the card and the sentiment really stands out on the red card stock. I really love how bold the images are on dark card stock.

In my next card, I layered 2 different rub-ons, the flower and the sentiment.

Finally, I used my Small Oval Nestabilities to cut out the tulip rub-on and then added the little "Thank You" sentiment from Beary Special Accessories.

Taylor has really picked out some great treats for you in these kits, so hop on over to the other Baker's Dozen members who have wonderful samples to show you today!
Thanks so much for stopping by ~
