Happy Birthday!

Hi everyone!  Happy Saturday!!!

I have a sweet Birthday card to share with you today using some delightful new goodies from Taylored Expressions!

The set I used today, Treasure Life, along with the coordinating Apothecary Jars Dies, were part of the last release, and I just love them!  This stamp set AND die set, along with the Apothecary Shelf A la Carte,  is also available in a bundle!  You can find it HERE.

I started by stamping the jars from Treasure Life in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock.  I then stamped the lemons, also from Treasure Life, in each one.  I cut out each of the jars using the Apothecary Jars Dies.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy (get it...lemons?  No?).  Curious to see how Taylored Dies work?  You can check out all the info HERE.  All of the jars are colored with Copic Markers and then I gave each jar a few coats using my Clear Glaze Pen.

The patterned paper that I used today is the gorgeous Portrait Collection from Crate Paper.  LOVE the patterns and colors in this collection.  I arranged my jars onto a piece of graph paper from this collection that I cut out with Rectangle Nestabilities and attached them with Foam Tape.  I then layered this panel onto  Kraft cardstock cut with Scalloped Rectangle Nestabilities.

A simple bow of a pretty lace that I created with The Bow Easy, a Prima Flower and two Kaisercraft Pearls are the finishing touches for this card, and the beautiful script Happy Birthday was stamped directly under the focal panel.

Here are the Taylored Dies I've used today:
