Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Begin!!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! Welcome to Day #1 of sneak peeks for the latest (and simply FABULOUS) Taylored Expressions Release!!

Today is all about pampering! With the holidays coming up (soooo fast!), this set is PERFECT for those spa gifts so many of us like to give!! The Bakers Dozen are sharing peeks of a GORGEOUS new set today, Luxurious Labels!!!

For my first project, I created a little gift set!! I started by stamping this DARLING bubble frame twice in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers. I then stamped "Pamper Yourself" in the center of each one (although this is just one of many options in this set) and added a coat of Star Dust Stickles to all the bubbles after I cut them out!!

I used one of my bubble frames for my card, and the other for a bottle that I filled with some bubble bath! Wouldn't this make a great gift? The possibilities are simply endless!

All the cardstock, patterned paper and ribbon on my card/bottle are from the Spa Key Ingredients (this KI is DELISH! The patterned paper is Whirlybird from My Minds Eye...SO yummy!!). The brads on the card are from my stash and I added some sewing to my card too!!!

You know I can NEVER just stop at one project, so for my next card, I wanted to show how VERSATILE this new set is! It's not just for can use it to make gorgeous cards too!!

For this card, I went with a Black/White & Intense Pink combo, and I started my stamping this scalloped frame from Luxurious Labels in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and then cut it out. I then stamped this GORGEOUS flower image, also from Luxurious Labels using two different colors of Memento Inks (I am OBSESSED with these inks lately...they are all I ever reach to use anymore!), Rose Bud and Cottage Ivy. I then cut this out with Classic Oval Nestabilities and added some sponged Rose Bud ink around the edges (this ink is SUPER easy to sponge...I find that I don't get a spotty look like I do with other inks!)

I stamped the sentiment, "Indulge", in Memento Tuxedo Black right in the midst of my flowers! I must admit, I love the look of this!!

I ran my Intense Pink cardstock through the Cuttlebug with the Diamond & Stars Impressabilities and the patterned paper is the retired Rockabilly from SU! I finished this off with some paper piercing (grin!) and a double ribbon of Whisper White Organdy and Black Twill!

You can check out the goodness from the rest of the Baker's Dozen right here!!!
