Before you head on over to Taylored Expressions and fill up your cart, I have two more cards to share with you!  First up I have a card with one of the new Moka sets available now, Moka Nora!  OMG...I think she is my most favorite Moka so far!  This collection is illustrated by the fabulous Nancy McKinney!

I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream and colored her with Copic Markers.  I cut her out with Petite Oval Nestabilities and drew in the frame with a Copic Multliner, as well as sponging the edges with Memento Cantaloupe ink.  I added Liquid Applique to the trim on her dress and hat and added a bit of glitter as well.

All of the patterned paper is Wonder from Authentique, and the border was created with the Small Scallop Border Taylored Die.  The sentiment, "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" was stamped onto a panel cut with the Fly Your Flag 2 Taylored Die, which is sold with the Fly Your Flag 2 Stamp Set!   I finished this one off with a bow tied with The Bow Easy, and a few pearls created with an Ice White Viva Pearl Pen!

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

Next up I have a card with a gorgeous new Petite set in the Lasting Impressions line at Taylored Expressions, Your Ways.  Isn't it such a beautiful quote?  All of the patterned paper is Blush from My Minds Eye.  I started by stamping the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a piece of patterned paper, and I then stamped the flower from the set behind it in silhouette using Pink Pirouette ink.

The border was created with the Medium Scallop Border Taylored Die, and I used the Leafy Branch Taylored Die, Friendship Blooms Taylored Die and Bugabee Flowers Taylored Die to create the leaves and flowers.  I topped off the flower with a button/twine combo, and added LOTS of dots with a Cream Viva Pearl Pen.  LOVE these pens!

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