Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek | Day 2

Hello and welcome to day 2 of Taylored Expressions release week sneaks!  Today the Baker's Dozen is showcasing two coordinating sets, which were designed and illustrated by the fabulous Taylor for the *te* line of stamps - From the Heart and From the Heart Funnies.

My first card uses the cute little mixer included in From the Heart as well as the coordinating sentiment in From the Heart Funnies.  I stamped the mixer once on Choice Buttercream cardstock and again on a scrap piece of Fly a Kite and then paper pieced the images together.  Did you notice the cork die cut?  I used the new coordinating From the Heart Frame Die as a background and then layered the scalloped circle on dimensional tape.

My next project really shows how beautifully matched the From the Heart frame image nests inside the From the Heart Frame Die.  I just love this unique shape!  These images are perfect for creating beautiful cards and tags, and for my tag, I simply stamped the frame shape in Dark Brown Fluid Chalk ink first, then using the stamp positioner, I stamped the round phrase inside.  I used the same paper-piecing method to create the mixer for the tag and then attached it to the bag with dimensional tape.  I ran a ribbon around the outside of the bag and then used my handy Bow Easy to create the bow and attached it with a glue dot.  Inside the bakery bag is my favorite no bake cookie - chocolate, peanut butter, oatmeal.  MMM!  Love them!

The rest of the Baker's Dozen have much more to show you - there are 19 different images in From the Heart and 16 sentiments in From the Heart Funnies, so don't miss a single one!

See you back soon!
