Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients - Happy Birthday!


Hi everyone!!  Happy Saturday!   

I am excited to share another project with you using the FABULOUS February Key Ingredients Kit from Taylored Expressions!  Here is a glimpse at this amazing kit!

Perhaps you stopped by yesterday when the Baker's Dozen and the Key Ingredients Team previewed this kit along with the exclusive Vintage Dreamer stamp set?  If not, I'd love for you to head on over to Taylor's Blog to get all the deets...it's such a fabulous value!

For my card today, I started with the current Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge, TESC152.  I flipped the sketch to accommodate the image I wanted to use today...the ever darling Moka Taylor!  I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored her with Copic Markers.  I then "fussy cut" her out and popped her up onto panels cut with Petite Oval and Petite Scalloped Oval Nestabilities.  I impressed the kraft oval with the new Houndstooth/Damask Taylored Impression Plate (swoon!).

The scallop panel was cut with the Medium Scallop Border Taylored Die, and all of the cardstock and patterned paper, Rosy from My Minds Eye, are from the February Key Ingredients Kit.  I added LOTS of distressing, something I don't often do but just LOVE the look of), and lots of stitching.  The sentiment, "Happy Birthday" is from Labels Of Love, and I stamped it onto a panel of patterned paper cut with the Fly Your Flag 2 Taylored Die.  I think this die is invaluable...I use it ALL the time.

Here is a closeup of sweet Moka Taylor.  LOVE her.  You can also get a good view of the panel impressed with the Houndstooth/Damask Taylored Impression Plate.

Using ribbon and a GORGEOUS Prima Fairytale Rose, both from the February Key Ingredients Kit, I created this bow with The Bow Easy and added the flower on top of it.  LOVE the look of this...and I MUST get more of these roses...they are SO gorgeous!  All of the panels are popped up with Foam Tape for lots of dimension.

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

My sweet friends Charmaine and Jessie (over on the KI Blog) have more inspiration for you today using the February Key Ingredients Kit!
