Taylored Expressions Previews: Day Two!

Hi everyone!! Happy Thursday!

Welcome to the second day of sneak peeks for the amazing new release from Taylored Expressions!!

Today, the Bakers Dozen are sharing peeks of FOUR new stamp sets in a new line @ Talyored Expressions called Petites!! This month, we are sharing Crafty Petites with you! SO.MUCH.FUN.

I made a set of cards today, and each card uses a different Crafty Petite set! They all share the same layout and papers, only the images and sentiments differ. As you can see, I embossed each black background with the RIDICULOUSLY awesome new Scallops and Circles Impression Plate (I totally LOOOOOVE this), and the border was created with the new Small Scallop Border Die. I snuck in a flower, from Friendship Blooms, cut using the Friendship Blooms Die, to anchor my sentiments and added one of Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to the center of each (of course, my Embellie Gellie made this a snap!). I just LOVE these dies!!

All of the images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and then colored with Copic Markers. I cut out and embossed each panel with Rectangle Nestabililites and sponged the edges with Memento Cantaloupe & Memento Tangelo. The gorgeous patterned paper is Circa 1934 from Cosmo Cricket!

This card uses the Kitchy Kitchen Crafty Petite. I ADORE this stove image and the sentiments are so darling!!

This card uses the Sew Happy Crafty Petite! Another set with darling images and sentiments!!! This was so fun to color too!

This card uses the Knit Wit Crafty Petite. I think this is my favorite sentiment...LOVE it!!

This card features Crafter's Anonymous...there is a show for hoarders, and when it comes to my stamp supplies, I should certainly be on it!

Here are the Taylored Dies and Taylored Impressions I've used on this set of cards!

Check out what the rest of the Baker's Dozen have cooked up with the Crafty Petites right here!
