Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!!
Today is release day @ Taylored Expressions, but before you run over and load up your cart, the Baker's Dozen have one more day of samples for you!!!
Today I am again working with the AWESOME Mom a la carte from Taylored Expressions, and I created a little card and gift card holder combo. So.Much.Fun.
This time, I decided to paper piece the entire image. I used the delightful Melissa Frances Kitschy Kitchen Collection as my paper choices...I just LOVE the red check pattern! Before adhering the paper pieced portions to the images, I sponged them a bit with Memento Potters Clay for a bit more definition.
I started by stamping the image in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock. I colored the heart and the portion of the mug that I didn't paper piece with Copic Markers. For the gift card tin, I cut out the panel with the Gift Card Frame Die. It makes decorating these tins a BREEZE!!!
For the card, I cut out and embossed the panel with Rectangle Nestabilities. I added a border with the Small Scallop Border Die and added a sweet Jenni Bowlin Cream Vintage Button and some Baker's Twine. On both, I added TONS of Espresso Dimensional Pearls around the focal panel for some more *oomph*.
Here are the Taylored Dies I used on this ensemble:
