I have a set of three cards to share with you today using some of the new goodies from Taylored Expressions

I am just IN LOVE with the new Green Acres set...I think that the images and sentiments are ADORABLE and hysterical, and I wanted to create a set of Clean & Simple cards using them!  These were seriously SO fun (and simple!) to create!   This set was illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink line and includes a whopping 24 stamps!!

For all three, I started with Kraft cardstock which I embossed with the Chicken Wire/Woodgrain Impression Plate.  The Embossing Pad Kit gives a great impression when paired with Impression Plates and Taylored Dies!   I rounded the bottom corners on all three with the Corner Chomper.  LOVE.  All of the images were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored with Copic Markers.  I cut out and embossed all the focal panels with Rectangle Nestabilities and added Baker's Twine to each as well.

This first card is my personal favorite of the set. I LOVE this tractor (it reminds me of the ones in Cars) and I paired it with the "Oh Crop" sentiment.  Wouldn't this be perfect for an "I'm sorry" card, or even a "whoops" card if someone hurts themselves? 

For the second card, I went with the pile of hay (how cute!) and the awesome "Hay There" sentiment.  Love the mix of fonts on this one!

For my last card, I just had to ink up this cute little pig!  I also stamped his nose twice and popped it up on Foam Tape.  The sentiment, "Hogs & Kisses", totally cracks me up!

Here is the Impression Plate I've used on my set of cards today:
