Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks Continue!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Thursday! Welcome to day #2 of sneak peeks of the latest release from Taylored Expressions!!!!

Today the Baker's Dozen will be showing you another exciting development at Taylored Expressions - Stamps A la Carte! TE will now be offering you a single serving of sweetness in the same top quality deeply etched pink rubber you love! For February we have 8 irresistible Whimsical Wishes Animals in Love! These stamps can be yours for only $6.95 each!

There is also an AMAZING new sentiment set, Animals In Love Sentiments, that coordinate perfectly with these new Stamps A la Carte!! I LOVE all of these animals, and they are SO perfect for so many occassions...Valentine's Day, Love, Anniversary, Birthday...any occassion at all!

I have two cards to share with you today! These animals are SO fun! For my first card, I used the snakes! Aren't they so super cute? I stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers.

I cut them out with Classic Circle Nestabilities and sponged the edges with Memento Canteloupe. I wanted to keep this layout super simple to showcase the snakes, so I went with a Suede Dark Brown panel with a strip of Nook & Pantry by Basic Grey to dress it up. The sentiment, "You Rattle My Chain" (giggle...love that!) is from Animal Love Sentiments, also being released tomorrow!!

For my second card, I could hardly wait to ink up these darling elephants! I just love them! I stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers. I then, with my Quickie Glue Pen, added Crystal Transparent Glitter to all of the hearts...it's super sparkly in real life!!

The sentiment, "Smooches" is also from Animal Love Sentiments, and I stamped it directly onto my Pretty Please paper by My Minds Eye. I added some stitching to each panel and finished this off with some pearls and a double ribbon!!!
