I have two cards to share with you today!  YAY!  The new sets and Taylored Dies are SO fun...let's get right to it!

First up is the ADORABLE new Far Out set, illustrated by Emily Burger for the Embracing Grace line at Taylored Expressions!  I just LOVE this new set...I think it may just be my favorite of the entire release!  I stamped this sweet robot in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers.  I cut out and embossed the image with Circle Nestabilities.

All of the cardstock, patterned paper and ribbon are from the Loyal Project Pantry Kit.  The patterned papers are Loyal from Authentique...YUMMY!

For my card, I used the April SFYTT for the layout.  I added some fun embellishments using the new Sprockets Taylored Dies.  These are SO fun!!!  You can also see a bit of yummy ribbon peeking out, which is also from the Loyal Project Pantry.  The sentiment, "Happy Birthday" was stamped onto a panel cut with the Fly Your Flag 2 Taylored Die, and I tucked it under the sprockets.


Here is a closeup of the sprockets!  Super fun no?


Here is a peek at the Loyal Project Pantry Kit along with some info about this kit:



When you want to bake up a yummy dessert you head to your pantry for the ingredients.  When you want to create a sweet papercrafting project, you can head to a Taylored Expressions Project Pantry for all the coordinating elements.  We've found that some of the best cake and cookie recipes are the ones based around a basic batter or dough recipe with lots of options to spice it up according to your tastes.  Taylored Expressions is offering the Loyal Basic Recipe Kit along with optional Spice It Up Ingredients that you can pick and choose from to build the kit just the way you want it.

The Loyal Project Pantry Basic Recipe Kit is $13.95 and includes:
Authentique Loyal 6x6 pad of 36 of sheets
12 sheets of coordinating solid cardstock
5 yards of ribbon (1 yard each of 5 different styles)

Spice It Up Coordinating products will be listed in the store under this item.

Here are the Copic Markers I've used on my card:


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



Next up is a SUPER adorable set called All Aboard!  This set, and a coordinating set, Loads of Fun, were concepted by our very own Jen Shults and brought to life by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink line at Taylored Expressions!  This set is SOOOOOOOO fun!

For my card, I started with an older SFYTT sketch, and the patterned paper is all Baby Jane from Cosmo Cricket.  I stamped the conductor (isn't she cute???) and the engine in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock, colored them with Copic Markers and then fussy cut them out.  They are popped up with Foam Tape onto circles cut with Circle Nestabilities.

I added a fun vertical accent using the AWESOME new Train Track Border Taylored Die!  The sentiment, "Choo! Choo!" was cut out and layered with Circle Nestabilities again.


Here are the Copic Markers I've used on this card:

  2. Your cards are always amazing and today's are no exception. I just want to say that I think it is wonderful that you are taking the extra effort to show what Copics you are using on your projects. As a new Copic user, I struggle with what colors to use so I really appreciate it!!
