Taylored Expressions Previews: Day Two!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Wednesday!!

Welcome to the second day of previews for the latest amazing release @ Taylored Expressions!!! There is alot on the menu today, but I get to share a FABULOUS new petite set with you, Wreath of Love!! All of the new sets, die and Impression Plate (yep! There is a new one...keep on reading...you will LOVE it!), will be released on Friday, January 7!

Just to remind you, and to let those of you know who do not yet have an TE stamps, they are all made of high quality red rubber that is already trimmed! All you have to do is put them on a block and start stamping!!

For my card today, I started with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch from this past Sunday, SSSc98! It's a great sketch and it was PERFECT for what I had in mind!!

I stamped the new Wreath of Love (LOVE!!) in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and cut it out using the new (and totally awesome) Seasonal Wreath Die! I colored it with Copic Markers and then cut out a bow using the Basic Bow Embossing Die (LOVE) and added it right on top! SO easy and so super fun!

ALL of the cardstock, patterned paper, ribbon, chipboard heart, sparkly fluff (covering the chipboard heart) and heart stick pin are from the MUST have Valentine Project Pantry Kit. Seriously. You NEED this Project Pantry. The patterned paper is the delish (so delish I want to use it every day) Be My Valentine collection from We R Memory Keepers. I created the bow with The Bow Easy.

I embossed the background with the new Heart Impression Plate (you need this too!) and added an AMAZING border using the new Heart Border Die (you really need this as well...lol!). Can you tell I LOVE the new dies and Impression Plate? I added some machine stitching and called it done, popped up all the elements with Foam Tape and called it done!

Here are the Taylored Dies and Impression Plate I've used on my card today! If you are not familiar with the AWESOME way the Taylored Dies work, you can get all the deets HERE:
