Speaking of new stuff, the design team has a lot to share today. There are three fab stamp sets designed by Nancy McKinney: Make A Wish, Borderlicious and Bubbles Big Background. There is also a fabulous Make a Wish Pantry Kit and two new dies: Scalloped Lace Eyelet border die and a set of balloon dies that coordinate with the Make a Wish stamp set. All of these fabulous new goodies will be available for purchase Friday, September 3rd at 8:00 am PST at TayloredExpressions.
Today I am sharing a couple of cards made with the fabulous Make a Wish set. This set is the latest addition to the TE Giving Tree series. For the months of September, October and November when you purchase this Taylored Expressions will donate $7.00 to a national children's charity that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions!
My first card focuses on one of the great sentiments included in the set and the tasty cake image (nom nom nom). I stamped the cake stand and the cake on Choice White cardstock and colored with Copic markers. I cut the images out and applied some Crystal Effects and a dusting of glitter to portions of the image. I stamped the sentiment on another piece of Choice White cardstock and used a square punch to notch the ends (big notches). I sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink and added a little piece of cardstock die cut with the Scalloped Lace Eyelet Border Die. The designer paper, cardstock and ribbon are all from the Make A Wish Project Pantry Kit.
My second card uses a couple of the fun balloon images and the banner image. I die cut the ballons using the matching Balloon Dies and colored them with Copic markers. You can do a lot with these balloons - use your markers to create your own pattern or stamp the balloons on designer paper and paper piece. I stamped the banner image with a dark teal on the textured side of a piece of the cardstock included in the pantry kit. I cut the image out, coated with VersaMark and heat embossed with an iridescent ice embossing powder. I finished the banner with dots of Liquid Silver Liquid Pearls. I attached the banner to the cardbase with dimensionals but thought some of the baker's twine included in the kit was also needed! :)
