It's no secret that I LOVE the Key Ingredients Kits from Taylored Expressions, and this month's kit is AMAZING!  You can make SO many cards with each kit!  I have created this set of four cards today...and you can see that I added layers...these are not CAS cards!  I still have TONS of cardstock and patterned paper left to make ALOT more cards!

I've used the gorgeous new Vintage Dreamer set!  I LOVE the bold patterns and this darling typewriter!  I started with the kraft cardstock in the kit and stamped the large flourish stamp in a pattern.  I then impressed the panel with the new and GORGEOUS Houndstooth/Damask Taylored Impression Plate.  I think this is my favorite Taylored Impression Plate so far!

I cut Choice Buttercream paper from the kit with the Large Layering Doily Taylored Die and then cut the circles of cardstock and patterned paper with Circle Nestabilities.  I arranged them where I wanted them on the card and then cut it down to where I wanted it.  I sewed around each circle...stitch by stitch.  That took awhile but I really love the look of it!

I stamped the typewriters twice for each card...once in Kraft and once in Choice Buttercream.  I added sentiments to the buttercream "paper", cut it out and popped it up so it looks like the paper in the typewriter.  I rolled it a bit for a more realistic look.  I cut out the typewriters as well and they are popped up with Foam Tape onto the circle panels.

I added matching ribbon from this Key Ingredients kit to each card, and created the bows with The Bow Easy.  I added a Prima Fairytale Rose (LOVE these) in the center of each bow.

I added black pearls in the top corner of each, and more stitching finishes them off!  Here is a closeup of one of the typewriters.  LOVE them!

Both the Baker's Dozen and the Key Ingredients Team are playing along today!  Check out more inspiration from:
