It's Release Day!!! WOO HOO!!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Sunday!! Today is the day! Release day at Taylored Expressions! I am SO excited for you all the see the new sets in their entirety, PLUS all of the exciting new products available at Taylored Expressions (can you say nesties?????).

For my card today, I used Fresh Flowers, which I just LOVE! This set is SUPER versatile, perfect for Mother's Day as well as Birthday Cards, Thank You cards...it's a must-have, in my opinion!!

I stamped my image onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I colored the vase and flowers (how GORGEOUS are these flowers? LOVE them!), with my Copic Markers.

ALL of the cardstock, patterned paper and embellishments on my card are from the Mother's Day Key Ingredients, also being released today! I LOVE the Key Ingredients. It is SO nice to be able to sit down and create, and in ONE place, have all the cardstock, patterned paper and embellishments that actually GO together!! You can even join the Key Ingredients Subscription, and choose either a 3 month or 6 month subscription and receive a new Key Ingredients kit each and every month!!

I did NOT pierce on this card (I know...crazy right??), but I still just could not leave my image alone (clearly I have issues!!), so using a ruler and my Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Marker, I created a frame around my image. I also added two Chocolate Chip lines on my vertical panel. I added a border of Choice Buttercream to my vertical panel which I punched with my Eyelet Border Punch, and I stamped my sentiment onto the patterned paper, which is Crate Paper Blue Hill Collection, and punched it with my Circle Punches. I finished off my card with some bling, Kaisercraft Rhinestones, which are INCLUDED in the Mother's Day Key Ingredients!!!

You can see the delicious-ness from the Baker's Dozen ovens right here!!

Taylor always has FABULOUS specials with her new releases, and today is no exception!! Check out the Special Lady Bundle!! This is such a fabulous deal!!

Today, I also have a sample of the Scalloped Purse favors for you! These are SOOOOOO much fun!!

For mine, I once again used Fresh Flowers! I chose one of the flower stamps in this set (and there are tons!), and I stamped it in Versamark ink all over the purse BEFORE I assembled it.

I then stamped the same flower in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream cardstock twice, colored it with my Copic Markers, cut one out and popped it up!

For the purse, I chose to use the Happy Birthday sentiment, and I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black. I added TONS of bling two different ribbons, both from the Mother's Day Key Ingredients, and that's it! SO super simple and so much fun too!!!

These Scalloped Purses come pre-scored, so they go together SUPER fast!! I love that I can use this to present a birthday gift now...perhaps a pretty piece of jewelry for my mom or my daughter's Godmother.

Thanks SO much for stopping by! Make sure you head on over to Taylored Expressions to pick up all the new goodies!!!
