My project today uses the new Labels of Love II, which is a follow up to the popular Labels of Love. Labels of Love II is a new set of labels/frames and sentiments that cover almost every holiday throughout the year.  This will be a great set for any stamper to add to their stamping arsenal. This will also make a great Christmas gift for your stamping friends!  It is a set of 27 stamps and coordinates with Labels of Love and Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio 3 Dies. 

The Labels of Love II is part of the TE Giving Tree program, designed to raise funds for a different charity each quarter.  For the months of November, December and January, Taylored Expressions will donate $5 from the sale of each Labels of Love II stamp set to the Union Rescue Mission.
In part the URM's Mission Statement reads:
We embrace people experiencing homelessness with the compassion of Christ – giving hope and healing for a changed life – helping them find their way home.

By Embrace we mean to welcome, to encircle with our arms.
By Compassion we mean to love and touch others, as Christ loved us.
By Hope we mean providing encouragement and resources for a new start.
By Healing we mean being restored in body, mind, and spirit through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
By Changed Life we mean going in a new direction and to realize our God-given purpose.
By Home we mean having the opportunity to earn a living, secure housing, and be a healthy family again.
The Union Rescue Mission (URM) was founded in 1891 and is one of the largest missions of its kind in America--bringing help and hope to men, women, and children experiencing homelessness in Downtown Los Angeles. Taylor's husband, Jon, served at the Union Rescue Mission when they lived in California and saw first hand the impact it had on the lives of the homeless.  Visit the Union Rescue Mission website at http://urm.org/.


My card used one the great sentiments and frames included in Label Of Love II Stamp set. I stamped the darling snowflake label, add the "Warm Wishes" sentiment and cut the frame out with the coordinating die from the Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio 3 Dies. I used Medium Scallop Border Die for my border. 


I added ribbon, Doodle Bug Twine in Swimming pool, and some machine stitching.



I also made a tin to hold hot chocolate packages and some sweet treats using on of the Clear Top Hinged Tins from the TE store.


Thanks for stopping by! I will back tomorrow with another new stamp preview.  Be sure to stop by all the designers blogs today for lots more inspiration.
