Taylored Expressions Release Party

Today is the day - the new releases are here and available at Taylored Expressions!  Along with 4 full stamp sets, 1 mini set, and 3 A La Carte cuppies, TE is debuting 3 new Card Kits!  Today some of the Baker's Dozen are featuring the Early Bird Card Kit, which is darling!  It includes:
  • 10 Choice Cardstock A2 card bases
  • 10 A2 envelopes
  • 15 sheets of Early Bird patterned paper sized for cardmaking at 4" x 6" (3 sheets each of 5 double-sided patterns)
  • 20 sheets of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cardstock (4 sheets each of 5 colors)
  • 1 package of Kaisercraft Pearls
  • 8 panels of Choice Cardstock sized 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (for images and layering)
  • 5 yards of ribbon (2.5 yards each of 2 different styles)
  • 1 Perfect Package Card Box

I used images from the new set, Let's Do Coffee, a totally fun set filled with a wide variety of whimsical images - I stamped the images in Memento Rich Cocoa and colored her in with Copics and used the papers and ribbon included in the Early Bird card kit.

I used a my 1-1/4" square punch to create the pattern of squares underneath the image - such a fun and easy way to use these cute papers.  And last...

I love this little Missing You images with the empty chair and decorated table - very clever!

Stop on by the Taylored Expressions store to find all that is Fresh Out of the Oven this week.  And don't forget to stop on by the rest of the Baker's Dozen to see what they have for you today as well:
