Taylored Expressions Previews: Day One!

Hi everyone!! Happy Monday!

Today is the first day of sneak peeks for the latest release from Taylored Expressions!! There is SO much goodness On The Menu today!

The Baker's Dozen are sharing peeks of four new sets with you today, and I get to share a peek of the newest set featuring everyone's favorite Cuppie, Gobble Gobble!!

As you may know, I ADORE Cuppie, and each of the images in this set are total cuteness!! For my card today, I decided to feature these ADORABLE pumpkins...their cute little faces totally make me smile!

I did a bit of paper tole on my card, and I started by stamping the pumpkins three times in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers.

I then cut out the medium & small size pumpkins and popped them up on Foam Tape. I then cut out the small pumpkins again and popped them up again on more Foam Tape. This card is VERY dimensional...LOL!!

I cut out and embossed the focal image with Oval Nestabilities and I sponged the edges with Memento Cantaloupe & Memento Tangelo to make it pop a bit. I stamped the sentiment, "You're the pick of the patch", also from Gobble Gobble, directly onto the focal panel.
The patterned paper on my card is from Matilda by Cosmo Cricket. I just LOVE the patterns in this collection! I added a border of Choice Buttercream Cardstock using the Scalloped Eyelet Border Die, and I sewed each layer on my sewing machine. A bow of twill ribbon, created with the Bow Easy, finished this one off!

Make sure to check out the rest of the Baker's Dozen to see what they have created from what's On The Menu today!
