Hello everyone! Guess what today is?! The first day of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions and we have plenty of goodies to share today: Dream Big Stamp Set, Treasure Life Stamp Set, Apothecary Shelf A la Carte Stamp, Apothecary Taylored Die Set and the Stars Impression Plate. Oh nicey nice!
For my sample today I focused on the Dream Big stamp set which contains 26 stamps and is perfect for all of your graduation needs: congrats cards, invitations and so forth). The fabulous Nancy McKinney illustrated this set for the Whimsical Wishes line of stamps. I'm also using the neato Stars Impression Plate (love!).
From the set I used the big circular sentiment and then combined the "Class of" sentiment with the current year - the set comes with a set of numbers so you can customize the year. Of course this assumes that you can remember how to spell the year... yeah, the first time around I stamped "2001". What's up with that?!
But I got it right the second time around... and then I decided to cut the numbers out and use dimensionals to give 'em a little extra pop so I stamped them yet again. ;) I accented the card with a bit of stitching, dots of Liquid Pearls, some fun ribbon and my current fixation: Glitter Candy Dots.
Before I forget, all of the fabulous stamps set and dies that the team are showcasing today will be available for purchase at Taylored Expressions on Thursday at 8:00AM (PST).
So what do you think? I tried to keep my card simple (ha ha ha! - total fail!) and suitable for a guy or a girl. Hmm... but unless guys like glitter, scallops and pearls I may have failed at that too! ;)
