Taylored Expressions Preview Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of Taylored Expressions June Sneak Peeks! I’m excited to be playing along with the Baker’s Dozen again this month!

June Release At a Glance

  • We have sneak peeks to share Monday through Wednesday.  All of the new products will be available for purchase on Thursday, June 7th at 8 am PSTYou’ll find it all in the Fresh out of the Oven Department at the Taylored Expressions Store.
  • Join us as a fan on Facebook for an early peek at the stamp sets, as well as a SPECIAL Facebook GIVEAWAY, on Wednesday night beginning at approximately 6 pm PST.

My card for today uses Moka Betsy, illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes collection at Taylored Expressions.

I’ve always been a big fan of the Moka line and Betsy is right up there among my faves!  She’s all decked out for the big celebration!  The set comes with Betsy, a star, a starred and striped heart plus three sentiments.  Love this set!

I colored Betsy with Copics, adding in ground/grass with pencils. I used the star and Antique Linen Distress ink to stamp a bit of a background pattern onto the kraft paper.

All papers and ribbon are from this month’s Project Pantry kit featuring American Crafts’ Let Freedom Ring Collection. (Details on Taylor’s blog here.)

On the ribbon, I threaded two star buckles die-cut using Shaped Buckles Taylored Dies.  (These are so cute!!)

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