Release Day @ Taylored Expressions!

Hi everyone!!  Happy Thursday and Happy Taylored Expressions Release Day!  Yippee!  All of the new stamp sets and Taylored Dies are available for purchase right now, right HERE in the Fresh Out Of The Oven Catagory!

But wait!  Before you go fill up your cart, I have one last sample to share with you today!  Take a gander at the ever so fancy Moka Cherie!  Isn't she just a doll?  I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored her with Copic Markers.   Don't forget the FABBY new Petite Storage Cases!  They fit SIX Petite sets in each box!  All of the cardstock, patterned paper and ribbon are from the Valentine Basic Recipe Project Pantry Kit and the sweet little button (it has an adhesive back!) is one of the optional Spice It Up Ingredients.  LOVE these!

I impressed the background panel with the Hearts Taylored Impression Plate.  I always use the Embossing Pad Kit to get a nice, crisp impression.  I cut a piece of Choice Buttercream Cardstock using the AMAZING new Layered Doily Medium Taylored Die for my circle element and stamped the sentiment, "Be Mine!", also from Moka Cherie, right onto it.  The bow was created with The Bow Easy and the double hearts were cut with the new (and totally essential) Hearts A Plenty Taylored Dies.  LOVE these.  As always, I popped up all my layers with my beloved Foam Tape.

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

Did you happen to see the FANTABULOUS new resource available tomorrow at Taylored Expressions?  Check out the sofabulousIcan'tlivewithoutit new Moka Hair Color Chart!  There were illustrated by Nancy McKinney and there is an uncolored version as well as a version colored by our very own Copic master, Jen Shults, with her suggestions for hair and skin color combinations!  

The best part?  Taylor will be offering Hair Color Copic Kits, on sale today!  YAY!!  This chart really made me go out of my comfort zone when coloring Moka Cherie.  Not only do I LOVE the results, I realized that there are now more Copic Markers that need to come live at my house (wink!).

Please head on over and visit with the rest of the Baker's Dozen and see what they have cooked up for you today!
