Taylored Expressions Preview Day 1


Welcome to Day 1 of Taylored Expressions June Sneak Peeks! I’m excited to be playing along with the Baker’s Dozen again this month!

June Release At a Glance

  • We have sneak peeks to share Monday through Wednesday.  All of the new products will be available for purchase on Thursday, June 7th at 8 am PSTYou’ll find it all in the Fresh out of the Oven Department at the Taylored Expressions Store.
  • Join us as a fan on Facebook for an early peek at the stamp sets, as well as a SPECIAL Facebook GIVEAWAY, on Wednesday night beginning at approximately 6 pm PST.

My card for today uses Moka Betsy, illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes collection at Taylored Expressions.

I’ve always been a big fan of the Moka line and Betsy is right up there among my faves!  She’s all decked out for the big celebration!  The set comes with Betsy, a star, a starred and striped heart plus three sentiments.  Love this set!

I colored Betsy with Copics, adding in ground/grass with pencils. I used the star and Antique Linen Distress ink to stamp a bit of a background pattern onto the kraft paper.

All papers and ribbon are from this month’s Project Pantry kit featuring American Crafts’ Let Freedom Ring Collection. (Details on Taylor’s blog here.)

On the ribbon, I threaded two star buckles die-cut using Shaped Buckles Taylored Dies.  (These are so cute!!)

MFT Preview Day 6 – Let Freedom Ring

It’s time to share this month’s Pure Innocence releases with My Favorite Things! I especially love this month’s PI’s.   :)

Meet Lady Liberty.  Sooo cute.

I colored her with Copics, added ground with pencils and tucked a short strip of new Notched Border Die-namics along the left edge of the focal panel.

On the inside, I stamped a silhouette of Lady Liberty in Bamboo Leaves ink and added a second sentiment from the set.
