Taylored Expressions Release Party

Good morning, friends!  Today is the day when ALL of the new Taylored Expressions products are now available in the Fresh Out of the Oven Department.  AND be sure to check the TE Current Specials page!

Today I'm showing off a super cute little set called Welcome Gnome.  Doug Applegate has illustrated another adorable set for the Apple Doodle Ink line, and this one is packed full with 22 delightful images and sentiments.

I stamped the images on Choice Snow White Card Stock and then colored them with Copic Markers and paper pieced them with some Gnome Sweet Gnome 6x6 Paper from My Mind's Eye.  I used the new Label Stacklets 2 Dies to cut the image panel and then added some Grass Borders for her little garden.  She's so sweet!  I also used an Inkssentials Opaque Pen to add some little white dots on her rosy cheeks.

And of course, I had to add my Signature Style on the back of the card too!

Be sure to stop and see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen have whipped up for you on release day!

  1. This card is adorable Karen. I love these images and even though I have a gnome stamp set from there she goes, I just put this set in my cart from T.E. I figure you can't have enough gnome sentiments and images. Those smiling flowers put me over the edge and I love the matching papers you used. Great card. I think I'll be casing this one for sure once my set arrives.

  2. Love this Karen! Love the layout and the paper-pieced dress and everything!
