Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 2!!!!

Hi everyone!!! Happy Monday!!

Welcome to day #2 of sneak peeks for the newest release at Taylored Expressions!! It has been SOOOOO hard keeping this set quiet!! O.M.G...I LOVE this set!!!

Here is a peek of a set being released tomorrow called Boys Will Be Boys!!! WOO HOO! This set is PERFECT in my world!! Both my husband and my Dad are hard working kinda guys, so this image ROCKS for both of, the other images in this set are AMAZING for any kind of man in your life!!!

My card also features cardstock, patterned paper and embellishments from the Father's Day Key Ingredients, also being released tomorrow!!

I must admit, this is my absolute FAVORITE Key Ingredients thus far...the papers in this kit are AWESOME and I have been using them over and over!!! The patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket and it is from their Lil' Man line.

You will notice that on my card, I used a metal sheet (this is SUPER cool!!!), which I ran through my Cuttlebug with the Harlequin Texturz Background from Sizzix/SU!, and I also hung a super cute hammer charm onto my ribbon. These two items are not included in the Father's Day Key Ingredients, but they are part of the Boys Will Be Boys Bundle!!!

For my card, I stamped the tool belt from Boys Will Be Boys in Memento Tuxedo Black onto the Choice Buttercream cardstock from the Father's Day Key Ingredients. I then colored it with my Copic Markers, and I added small highlights of my Clear Atyou Spica pen to the "metal" parts of the tool belt.

I LOVE the brads that come in the Father's Day Key Ingredients, and I highlighted mine by punched a 3/4 Circle with a punch and placing same under the brads.

The sentiment, Happy Father's Day, is not a curved sentiment, however, I just placed it on my acrylic block and curved it before I inked and stamped it, so that it follows the lines of my circle.

I am thrilled with how this card came out! I think this is going to be my Dad's Father's Day card!!!
