Bugs & Kisses

Welcome and thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are getting ready to bring in the New Year! 

I am popping in today with a card I made with some new products from Taylored Expressions


I love a cute mason jar! This one is created with the new Mason Jar Stamp Set and the coordinating Mason Jar Dies. I cut out the center of the Mason Jar and added acetate and form tape to form the shaker. 


The image inside the jar is stamped with the Bugs & Kisses Stamp & Die Combo and colored with Copic Markers. The sentiment is also from the Stamp Set. Behind the jar I added a doily and a circle cut from vellum. The sweet banners are cut with the Skinny Mini Valentine Borders Dies. 

Have a Happy New Year!! Be sure to stop by on New Years Day for the Seasons Giving Blog Hop. I will have a nice prize package to give away!

Here are the products I used to create my card:

Sugar Pea Designs

If you are like me you are running around this week finishing up all the holiday preparations! I have two more days of work and then I am off until after New Years. Yeah! It is my year to host Christmas Dinner, 27 people! 

But I did want to pop in and share my last card as a Guest Designer for Sugar Pea Designs. It has been an honor to design along with the Sugar Pea Design Team and work with some fun, new products. Thanks so much for having me! 


I created this card with the Whisky Business Stamp Set and coordinating Whisky Business Sugar Cuts.  I colored all the stamped images with Copic Markers.


The great sentiment is from the Whisky Business Stamp Set and die cut with the SugarCuts – Zig Zag Stitched Circles. Sequins, twine, and a doily finish off the card. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Simply Stamped Roses

Hi and thanks for stopping by today. I posted my last Christmas card a couple of days ago which always makes me a little sad, but today I have a pretty birthday card to share using some new products from Taylored Expressions.



The background is embossed with the new Swiss Hearts Embossing Folder. The sentiment, roses, and leaves are stamped with the new Simply Stamped - Roses Stamp Set. The roses are stamped in three steps starting with the lightest ink. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, and Festive Berries. The leaves are done in two step with Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint.


The flowers and leaves are die cut with the coordinating Simply Stamped - Roses Dies. I used the Stitched Circle Stacklets to cut out the sentiment. A little twine bow and a couple of stick pins finish off the card.

Thanks! Here are the products I used to create by card.

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Milk and Cookies

It's the 15st of December  and time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge! I can't believe Christmas is almost here! This is my last Christmas card for the year! I love creating at this time a year. 

I hope you get a chance to play along. The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!


Here's my take on the challenge. You can see the little gingerbread men playing in the snow! 


The background is embossed with the Winter Flurry Embossing Folder from Taylored Expressions. The sky background is watercolored and the die cut with the Scene It: Basic Backer Die from Papertrey Ink and layered on the Scene It: Doily Tag Base Die.


The cute scene is created with the Petite Places: Holiday Lane Stamp Set and coordinating Dies. The 4mm Clear Droplets are from Pretty Pink Posh

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you get a change to play along!

Taylored Expressions December Release Day!

It's release day at Taylored Expressions!!  All the new December products are available at the TE web store NOW!

Today I have card to share using the new Stitch by Stitch Stamp Set and the Embroidery Hoop Die. 


I will admit I have slight obsession with any sewing and stitched themed products! I was pretty excited about an embroidery hoop. 

I stamped the cross stitched owl with Distress Makers. I used my Misti Stamping Tool and added the colors one step at a time. The embroidery hoop is cut from Toffee Card Stock and I used silver card stock at the top. 


The embossing at the bottom is done with the new Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. The sentiment is included in the Stitch by Stitch Stamp Set. I created the flower with the Bloomers 1 Die and Raspberry Felt. 

Thanks for visiting! If you'd like to see more projects and new product information, please head over to the TE Blog for a complete list of our participating designers!

Here are links to products I used to create my card:
