TE Sneak Peeks: Bringing Home Baby

Hello Everyone!  Woo hoo!  Today is Day Two of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions.  All of the crafty sweetness we have been sharing will be available for purchase Thursday at 8:00AM PST at Taylored Expressions.  We are back today with more baby goodness, in particular we are showcasing Bringing Home Baby and a new Cuppie set called Baby Cakes!


For my card today I am using the Bringing Home Baby set.  This set, illustrated by Nancy for the Whimsical Wishes line of stamps, is jam packed with all kinds of baby decor perfect for cards, altered art pieces or home decor.  I used the darling baby carriage from the set to create a pretty pink baby card.


I stamped the carriage on Snow White cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  I’m betting you can guess the next part – I trimmed the image, added Glossy Accents and dusted with glitter. ;)  I then die cut a pink frame using a Labels 18 Nestabilities.  I added pink Liquid Pearls and then stamped the sentiment on matching cardstock, trimmed and adhered to the frame with dimensionals. 

The rest of the layout is simple… just rectangles cut from designer paper, matted on gray with stitching around the edges.  A bit of twine and a couple of brads and I was all done! :)
