Lots to ENJOY! at Taylored Expressions




Get ready for more exciting peeks for you to ENJOY today from Taylor and her team! I’ve got two using another new Whimsical Wishes set I illustrated, Enjoy! Guess what? There’s another coordinating die with this one too!!

My first project is just simple stamping (with masking but no colouring). When I was illustrating this set, I kept thinking...this is one my husband would actually use. He’s a great one for the I.O.U. So with this in mind, I kept my project simple and more masculine—no ribbons or frills...just black and kraft. The set is designed to work with the adorable small hinged tins Taylor has in her store. The die cuts the dotted frame to make quick little cards. I’ve used an assortment of images and sentiments on the six cards I’ve included in the tin. ENJOY!

Next, I used the fashion icons from the set for this card:

I’ve masked the stands and images and also popped up the shoes and purse that I coloured with copics and prismacolors. The ribbon is a gathering attempt gone wrong that I kept and decided to finally use. I think it looks like a whimsical rosebud. The patterned paper is from the basic grey june bug paper pad.

Can’t wait to see what the Baker’s Dozen has created with Enjoy! today...

Thanks so much for looking...
