Today there are four new petite sets being previewed, and I am SO excited to share with you one of the newest in the Moka Collection, illustrated by Nancy McKinney, Moka Princess Penelope!  Isn't she SO sweet?   I adore her!  I also adore the Petite Storage Cases, which is how I store all of my petite sets.  I already have four full of Mokas...that makes me happy (grin).

I stamped Moka Princess Penelope in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream and colored her with Copic Markers.  I added tons of glitter to her dress...a Princess needs a sparkly gown right?  I then fussy cut her out and popped her up with Foam Tape onto a panel of patterned paper cut with the From The Heart Frame Taylored Die.  All of the patterned paper is Dolled Up from My Minds Eye.  After I cut out the frame I traced the die onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and then cut it out for an additional layer.

I used the new, and AWESOME, Majestic Border Taylored Die for the border (LOVE this), and the sentiment, "Wishing You A Lifetime Of Dreams Come True" was stamped onto a panel cut with the Fly Your Flag 2 Taylored Die.


Here is a closeup of her super sparkly dress:


I created a little crown banner on the top of my card.  This was FUN to create!  I started with a base cut with the Fly Your Flag 2 Taylored Die, and then two circles cut with Circle Nestabilities.  I finished off with crowns cut with the new Royal Treatment Crowns Taylored Dies.  All of the layers are popped up with Foam Tape and tied with some twine.  I added tons of stitching with my Janome Sew Mini and called it done!


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!
Thanks SO much for stopping by!  I hope to see you back tomorrow for more previews!
