Hi everyone! Welcome to Day 1 of Taylored Expressions May Sneak Peeks! I’m so excited to have been invited to play along with the Baker’s Dozen for May and June!  It’s an absolute honor to stamp along with such an incredibly talented group of ladies!  🙂

My card for today uses All Aboard illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink line at Taylored Expressions.

This set is absolutely adorable!   With 20 images and a wide variety of sentiments, there are so many fun scene-building possibilities to fit many different occasions!

After stamping and coloring my image with Copics, I adhered strips of Train Track Border beneath the train and sentiment.  I added brads in the train wheels and popped up my little engineer on foam tape.

Papers are from this month’s new Project Pantry Kit which features the Loyal collection from Authentique.  Love these!  How convenient to have patterned papers along with matching cardstock and more all in one collection!  (Spice it Up coordinating products will be available as well.  So easy!)  🙂

I quickly finished the inside of my card using a second image and sentiment from the set as well as another strip of Train Track Border.

Be sure to check out what the Baker’s Dozen have created today!

Thanks so much for visiting!  I’ll be back tomorrow with another TE preview!  (So excited!  *squeal*)  🙂
