Taylored Expressions Release Party

Hey, hey!  It's Friday and that means it's the Taylored Expressions release party!  All our new items are now for sale and you aren't going to want to miss anything - lot's of fun items for you and your crafty friends.

For my card today, I'm using the new set, Friendship Blooms along with the coordinating Friendship Blooms Dies.  This blossom set is packed full of different sized flowers and centers to keep your creative wheels turning and is available as a Friendship Blooms, Friendship Blooms Dies, & Leafy Branch Die bundle - convenient one stop shopping, yay!  I stamped the flowers in Warm Red and Yellow Ochre and added a Dark Brown center for the sunflower.  I couldn't resist the polka-dots!  The patterned papers are Basic Grey Marjolaine and I added a fun little olive satin bow using my Bow Easy.  The layout is The Sweet Stop's SSS84.

You can catch all that is new in the Taylored Expressions store today along with all the Crafty Petites, which are available in a bundle package for more than 10% off the original price!  There is more inspiration from the Baker's Dozen - hop on over to see:
