Taylored Expressions Previews: Day Three!

**PLEASE SCROLL DOWN A SMIDGE FOR MY MFTWSC POST.  THANKS!**


Hi everyone!!  Happy Wednesday!

Today is Day Three of Taylored Expressions Previews and I am SUPER excited to share some new goodies with you today!!

I know, I know...yesterday I mentioned that Love Shack was probably my most favorite set of this release...but, it may be a VERY close tie with the first set I've used today...Love Monsters!  This is a full sized set of 19 images and sentiments and was illustrated by Emily Burger for the Embracing Grace line at Taylored Expressions!  The expressions on these monsters just make me so very happy!  This set is perfect for just about any occassion or reason!

I could not put this set down, and so I decided to create a set of little note cards, they are 3X3, since I could not pick just one monster to work with.  I created them all in the same way.  I started by stamping the monsters in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers.  I then "fussy cut" them out.

Here is a picture of all of them together:


I then cut out circles of Kraft cardstock with Circle Nestabilities, which are layered over another panel cut from Choice Buttercream Cardstock using the new (and drool worthy imho) Layering Doily Medium Taylored Die (swoon!).


The monsters were then popped up with Foam Tape onto the layered circle panel.  I then added two hearts per card, all created with another AMAZING new die...the Hearts A Plenty Taylored Dies.  LOVE these!


All of the sentiment panels were hand cut after I stamped the sentiments.  The hearts anchor the sentiment panel to the card.


Did you notice those fabby little heart boxes under my cards?  Talk about swoon!  They were created with the FAB new Heart Favor Box Taylored Die!  These are a BREEZE to make...Meredith and I have plans to make 23 of them for her class this Valentine's Day!


Here are the Taylored Dies I've used for these:




Next up I have a card to share with you using the previously released Animals In Love Flamingos!   There are three new Animals In Love A la Carte stamps being released tomorrow from Taylored Expressions!  Would you like to get the Animals In Love Flamingos for free?  Find out how on Taylor's Blog today!!

For my card, I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC149.  All of the patterned paper, cardstock, and ribbon on my card are from the Valentine Project Pantry Kit Basic Recipe.  Here is what is included in this amazing value:

Valentine Basic Recipe Project Pantry Kit includes:
20 sheets of double sided patterned paper (American Crafts With Love Collection)
12 sheets of 8.5 x 11 solid cardstock
6 yards of ribbon (2 yards each of 3 different styles)

I stamped the Flamingo A la Carte in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and cut it out.  I then layered it onto a panel cut with Circle Nestabilities, layered over a panel cut with the new Layering Doily Medium Taylored Die.
The sentiment, "My Soulmate" from Animals In Love Sentiments, was stamped onto a panel cut with the Fly Your Flag 2 Taylored Die.  I then anchored it to my card with hearts cut with the Hearts A Plenty Taylored Die.  The bow was created with the Bow Easy and all the layered popped up with Foam Tape.


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