Taylored Expressions Previews: Day Two!

Hi everyone!!  Happy Wednesday!!  Today is Day 2 of Taylored Expressions Previews!!  

I am SUPER excited about this month's release...the new Taylored Dies are AH-mazing!!!  Today, I've used three new Taylored Dies on my card, and the sweet new Moka Gwen is helping me showcase them!!

Check out the Library Pocket!  ACK!  LOVE LOVE LOVE!!  I created it with the new Library Pocket Taylored Die which I LOVE!!!  I created the library card inside using the new Library Card a la carte stamp!  LOVE!  I stamped "You're an A+" from the new Doodle Notes set in Red Currant Fresh Ink.

All of the patterned paper is 9 to 5 from October Afternoon, and I am loving the argyle pattern with this new Moka Gwen!  I separated the patterns of paper with a border of Choice Buttercream cut with the new Notepaper Border Taylored Die.  I added a few buttons and the bottom button was placed on top of two layered hexagons that I cut with the new Hexagon Stacklets Taylored Dies.

Here is a closeup of Moka Gwen.  Oh my.  I LOVE her, and I super love how her hair came out.  I REALLY wanted to blend it in, but I resisted the urge and I love the contrast.  I stamped her onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored her with Copic Markers.  I then cut her out and popped her up with Foam Tape.

Here is a closeup of the hexagons.  You can also see that I stamped a pattern onto my Library Pocket, and I used the new Hexagon Big Background and stamped it with Paper White Fresh Ink.

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