Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek | Day 1


We're getting ready for another fabulous release at Taylored Expressions and Taylor is giving away a fun TE prize too - so be sure to read all the way to the bottom of this post for all the details, you don't want to miss a thing!

If you are new to Taylored Expressions, all of the stamps are deeply etched rubber cling-mount stamps and are packaged on a full color inspiration panel, which stores easily in the Mini Binder Box, and our Petite sets store nicely in the new Petite Storage Box.

Today we have peeks of 2 new stamp sets, 2 new A la Carte stamps, 7 new dies and die sets, plus a brand new Project Pantry.  I'm here to give you a little preview of Rosy Posey, a perfectly fabulous set of 19 images and sentiments illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line.



I really love the elegance of this set and the images are both solid and open, so it gives you lots of different possibilities.  I started by stamping the rose in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Choice Buttercream cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers.  The rose is cut out with the coordinating Rosy Posey Dies and then I added the Mini Leaves Dies underneath.  See that gorgeous doily??  Taylor has 3 new Layering Doily Dies, which are sold separately in different sizes - Large, Medium, and Small.  I'm using the Layering Doily Large on my card, and it measures approximately 4" in diameter.  It's absolutely stunning!


I finished the card with some Black Pearls and the papers are all from Stella & Rose Hattie by My Mind's Eye.  The layout is MOJO221.

Wow, what a fabulous card. Love this doily die and the shaped card that you made. I know that I have to have the Rosy Posie stamp set and, of course, if you get the stamps you have to have the dies. Oh boy--can't wait to shop. patnbobcuddy at gmail dot com
