Today, the Bakers Dozen have the pleasure of sharing previews with you of an absolutely gorgeous new set called Friendship Blooms! Let me tell you, this set is a must have in your stamping arsenal!
Something else thats a must have? Well, how about GORGEOUS new dies??? This month, Taylor is releasing three different sizes of Scallop Border Dies (I used the Medium Scallop Border on my card today), Friendship Blooms Die (that totally matches the flowers in Friendship Blooms), and my personal favorite, the Leafy Branch Die! Another new product being released on Thursday, (and this is FLIPPIN' FANTASTIC) is the Scallops and Circles Impression Plate! I LOOOOOOOVE this...so be prepared to see it ALOT! LOL!!
For my card, I started by stamping one of the beautiful sentiments from the set, "I'm lucky to have you as a friend" and then stamped the leaf stamp, after stamping off twice, behind it. I cut out and embossed this panel with Circle Nestabilities and layered it over Scallop Circle Nestabilities. I stamped the flowers and leafy branch using fall colors of cardstock to match the patterned paper, which is from Curio by Basic Grey, and then cut them out using the Leafy Branch Die and the Friendship Blooms Die. I arranged them all the way I wanted and popped up the flowers using Foam Tape.
The sunflower has some Coffee Bean Sparkly Fluff added to the center, and the other flowers are adorned with a rhinestone and some of Taylor's Tiny Twinkles. The background was embossed using the new Scallops and Circles Impression Plate (isn't it FABU?), and I sewed all of the layers on my sewing machine. A few brads in the corners and some lace trim finish this one off!
Here are the Taylored Dies and Taylored Impressions I've used on my card:
