Taylored Expressions Previews: Day Three!

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!!

Today is the 3rd day of previews for the latest release from Taylored Expressions, available tomorrow!!

I am SUPER excited about the set that the Baker's Dozen are sharing with you today! It's always hard to choose, but if pressed, I would say this is my favorite new set from this release! It was concepted by my sweet friend Iwona Palamountain...may I present to you, It's A Banner Day 1 and the coordinating Banner Day Die!

All of the members of the Baker's Dozen are sharing previews of this set with you in conjunction with a previously released Taylored Expressions set so you can see just how versatile this set it (it's a must have!!). I chose to pair this new set up with For The Love of Cupcakes to create a sweet Birthday card!

I stamped the cupcake from For The Love of Cupcakes three times in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers. I paper pieced the "liner" with the same patterned paper I've used on my card, Little Boy from Echo Park Papers. The frosting was colored with Copics, glittered up with Starfire Glitter, cut out and popped up on Foam Tape.

I cut out and embossed the panel with Rectangle Nestabilities and then lightly sponged it for a bit of definition. I added machine stitching around this panel, as well as the rest of the card, and then it was time for the banner!!

I stamped it first, then added the sentiment, also from It's A Banner Day 1, then cut it out with the Banner Day Die! Easy peasy and I LOVE how it looks! LOVE!

The layout is Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, SSSC102, and I added some white brads and a bow created with the Bow Easy to finish this one off. As always, all the elements are popped up on Foam Tape.

Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on my card today:
