TE Sneak Peeks Day 2: Bear Hugs

January2012ReleasePostBanne

Hey Crafty Friends!  Welcome to Day 2 of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions!  Today we have peeks of 3 new stamp sets.  Form my card I’m using the new Buddy Bear Petite stamp set!

Buddy Bear is a sweet bear illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink line!  The set includes 8 images and sentiments and comes on a mini storage panel.  BTW – all TE stamps are pre-trimmed rubber mounted on cling foam.  All you need to do is mount the stamp on an acrylic block and you are ready to stamp.

For my card I stamped Buddy on Choice Snow White cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  I added just a touch of Glossy Accents to the heart flowers and dusted with glitter.  I was in the mood for shabby so I distressed a lot of edges before adding stitching.

I stamped the sentiment on a piece of ivory cardstock and sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  After adhering in place I added a little heart cut from cardstock using the new Hearts a Plenty die set.  I decorated the heart with a clear button and a bit of twine.
