I am SO excited to share a DARLING new Petite stamp set with you today from the Apple Doodle Ink line at Taylored Expressions, illustrated by Doug Applegate.  Meet the ADORABLE new Polar Pete!  LOVE him!
All of the patterned paper, cardstock, ribbon and embellishments on my card are from one of the new Taylored Card Kits being released tomorrow!  Each kit includes 10 solid colored cardstock card bases,10 neutral cardstock image panels, envelopes, patterned paper, ribbon, KaiserCraft rhinestones or pearls - all packaged in a Petite Storage Case!  I've used the October Afternoon Sidewalks Taylored Card Kit today!  I must mention how AMAZING the new Petite Storage Cases are!  They can hold six Petite Sets and I LOVE how the are the same height as the TE Mini Binder Boxes from Taylored Expressions, so they look fabulous on my shelf!

I stamped this cutie in Memento Tuxedo Black on Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers.  I cut out the panel with Circle Nestabilities and then added dots all around with the fabby Viva Pearl Pen in Cream.  Love.  I added some Crystal Stickles to the iceberg for a shimmery, icy look.

All of the patterned paper is Sidewalks from October Afternoon, and I added a border with the Small Scalloped Border Taylored Die.  For the sentiment panel, I started by cutting patterned paper with one of the dies from the Totally Tags Taylored Die, then put the die down on Choice Buttercream Cardstock, traced it and cut it out.  I love a layered look.  

I then took Fly Your Flag 1 Taylored Die (which is sold with the coordinating Fly Your Flag 1 Petite Stamp Set) and stamped the sentiment, "Floatin' by to say hi!".  I added some pearls and the bow was created with The Bow Easy.  The focal panel and sentiment panels are popped up with Foam Tape. Wouldn't a Taylored Card Kit, paired with perhaps a new Petite set or two, make an awesome gift for any stampy friend? wheels are turning!

Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on my card:

Please head on over and visit with the rest of the Baker's Dozen and see what they have cooked up for you today!
