It's Taylor! *grin* As Nancy was designing the initial Moka girls, this one was my favorite so she named it after me! I love her sweet ruffled dress and cute little headband. I started by stamping her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, paper piecing her dress with patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky patterned paper, and coloring the rest of her with Copics. I decided to make a little door knob hanger (perhaps for our little girl's nursery!) using one of the fun acrylic shadowbox frames by Darcie's. This one is the Bella Medium frame. They're easy to use and your project will look really professional once you put it all together (oh... and they're on sale!). I added a few Split Pea rhinestones along the grass lines, but other than that it really didn't need much dressing up with the help of the acrylic frame!
Memento Tuxedo Black ink, paper piecing the hoodie with patterned paper from the Echo Park Little Boy collection, and coloring the rest with Copics. I cut the image out with Spellbinders Labels Seventeen and sponged around the inside with chalk ink. The Seeing Stars die set and the Star Border die that we showcased yesterday with the circus set look great with Justin too! Then to finish it off I added the 'dude' sentiment and embossed the birthday sentiment with white embossing powder. Here are the dies I used on my Moka Justin project:
Mom, Welcome Baby, and Wow You're Engaged too. I found the most perfect telephone patterned paper in the Alphabet Soup Girl Project Pantry kit. I colored the letters and telephone image to match the patterned paper and then added a denim flower from my stash along with a rhinestone center and some Crystal Stickles on the telephone to finish it off. It was a super quick and easy card (and I think pretty cute too!).
So there you have our July sneak peeks! All of the new products will be available at the TE Store tomorrow morning at 8am PST! And if you're looking for something to keep you busy in the meantime, make sure you check out the rest of the Baker's Dozen blogs (and leave some comments along the way for a chance to win a gift certificate!). I just know they're gonna blow you away with their creativity!
