Are you a Downtown Diva?

Well, I sure am ;)
(well, at least I like to think I am!! LOL!)

Hi everyone!! Happy Saturday!! Welcome to Day 2 of sneak peeks of the Taylored Expressions Release!! Tomorrow is the big day and you will be able to get your hands on Fresh Flowers, the set you saw yesterday (which I LOVE LOVE LOVE), and this AWESOME new set, Downtown Diva (which I LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!).

OK...seriously, these cuppies just get more and more fabulous with each release, and DIVA cuppies...NO WAY!! LOVE them!!!

For my card, I stamped the row of shops (how cooooool are they!!) in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice White Cardstock (my ALL time favorite cardstock to use my Copics on!!), and colored the entire scene with my Copic Markers. I must admit, I had WAY too much fun coloring this!!! I then stamped my little diva cuppie, also in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice White Cardstock, colored her with Copics (did you see that flower in her hair??? LOVE that!!), and punched her out with my 1 1/4 Circle Punch! I paper pieced her cuppie *liner* with the same DSP I used on the rest of my card, Sweet Slumber by SU! I then layered her with another circle and a Scallop Circle that I punched with my Crop-A-Dile to get the holes.

The sentiment, "People who say money can't buy happiness, don't know where to shop!" was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black directly onto the DSP! How FUN is this sentiment (and SO true...ask any stamper, we know that money buys stamp happiness right???)

I finished off my card with TONS of piercing (what can I say...I just LIKE to!!), and a double ribbon of So Saffron and Riding Hood Red!!

You can see all the other delicious goodness from the Baker's Dozen Ovens right here!!!

For all you Twinkles fans out there, there are TWO new tiny twinkle carousels being released!!! One is all clear rhinestones in varying sizes and the other is Multi-colored Twinkles in various shapes (stars, hearts, flowers, teardrops, squares, etc.)! AND, when you purchase one each of the two new Twinkles, receive the multi-colored round twinkles FREE! Yes, I said free!!

Another tidbit of information for you! JustRite is discontinuing all of their self-inking stampers!
