Taylored Expressions Previews: Day One!


Hi everyone!!  Happy Monday!  Welcome to Day 1 of Taylored Expressions Previews!  Taylor has an AMAZING release in store for you this month!

Today I am sharing a card with you using an AWESOME new addition to the word a la carte set from the te Collection at Taylored Expressions, Love A la Carte!  I adore all of the word A la Carte stamps at Taylored Expressions, and this new stamp is perfect for Valentine's Day, anniversaries, weddings...or any occassion! 

Like all of the stamps at Taylored Expressions, this stamp is made from a high quality rubber in a cute shade of pink.  They really stamp like a dream!

For my card today, I started with last week's Sketch Challenge at SCS, SC365.  All of the patterned paper is the new Love Me from My Minds Eye...one of my favorite paper packs right now.  I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers.


For the border across the card, I used the FAB new Jumbo Heart Border Taylored Die, and I cut it twice...once from grey cardstock and once again from patterned paper.  I then added the patterned paper hearts over the grey ones and then added silver brads between each.  Love the look of this!



In the sketch, there is a horizontal panel behind the focal panel.  Instead of doing a full panel, I used two hearts cut with the new Hearts A Plenty Taylored Dies.  LOVE these dies!  I finished off the card with two more silver brads on the bottom, which are layered over circles punched with a 1/4 Circle Punch.  All of the elements are popped up with Foam Tape for dimension.

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