Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks - Day 1

Welcome to the first day of sneak peeks for the next stamp release from Taylored Expressions! I think we have some really awesome images to show you this month and I can hardly wait to share more with you! Today the Baker's Dozen and I are showcasing the newest addition to our Stamp a Sweet Impression collection, Doctor's Orders. The images in this set are sure to cheer anybody who's feeling a bit under the weather! I decided it might be fun to stamp the Dr. and patient image onto lined paper. I used a piece that I've been storing away (a.k.a. hoarding) from the October Afternoon County Fair collection. I colored the image with Copic markers, with the exception of the stethoscope which was colored with silver paint pen. Then I adhered some yummy red gems to top each little cuppie. The polka dot patterned paper is also from the October Afternoon County Fair collection and I used some brown and cream double-edge polka dot ribbon. To finish it off, I stamped the sentiment onto lined paper, popped it up with foam tape, and attached a brown polka dot binder clip to the top.

It's always hard for me to stop at just one card so I kept going! I wanted to create something a little softer this time so I pulled out an old favorite, the Cosmo Cricket Little Girls Collection. I started with Sketch Challenge 225 for inspiration. I stamped the image onto Choice Buttercream cardstock and colored everything but the comforter with Copic markers. Then I paper pieced the comforter with patterned paper. The image was cut out with a Spellbinders rectangle die, layered on the coordinating scalloped rectangle, and popped up on 1/8" foam tape. I added a Red Rain Dot to the cherry and the ribbon is Caribbean Satin from the store. I used my Stampin' Up 1" circle, 1 1/4" circle, and Label punch for the sentiment.

I know a lot of you are new to Taylored Expressions so I wanted to take some time to tell you about our stamps. If you're already a proud owner of TE stamps, then you know the wonderful quality and value coming your way each month! Our stamps are unmounted, deeply-etched rubber in a *cute* shade of pink! You can see just how deeply etched our stamps are in this picture. This means you get a perfect impression the first try...every time! The rubber image is attached to EZ Mount cling cushion allowing you to use our stamps with an acrylic block. Just peel the image from the storage panel, place it on the acrylic block, and stamp. Our EZ Mount has a lifetime guarantee and if any of your images lose their stickiness, we'll replace the EZ Mount absolutely free. Perhaps the most valuable feature of our stamps is that they are already die cut! Each set will come closely trimmed so there is no need to spend your time cutting out the images from a sheet of rubber. Each stamp set is packaged on a heavy-duty laminated storage panel (pictured here... yes, I'm giving you a big sneak peek!)with a full-color index. The stamps stick to the back of the panel that's ready to be stored inside our mini binder box. The binder box will store up to four stamp sets. The front and back cover can be customized in any way you choose, but it also comes with a Taylored Expressions insert for the cover and spine. The cover insert has four spaces for you to write the names of each set you've stored inside. Hopefully this description and these photos will answer most of your questions about our stamps. If you have further questions, please feel free to email me or leave a comment on this post! Thanks for stopping by during our first day of sneak peeks! Hope to see you right back here tomorrow when the Baker's Dozen and I show peeks from the next stamp set in the Whimsical Wishes collection!
