What's Cookin' at Taylored Expressions?!





Today’s the first day of sneak peeks for the November release at Taylored Expressions. You’ll want to get all of the details on Taylor’s blog and visit the Baker’s Dozen for inspiration! I have two cards to share using the newest Whimsical Wishes set I illustrated, What’s Cookin’. What’s so cool about this new set is that we’ve also designed dies to coordinate with five of the images. I’m showing you four of them today—the tea kettle, oven mitt, apron and measuring spoons.


My first card shows the apron die, but also some paper piecing. I’ve followed Karen’s Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC90) for this one. The white eyelet lace is from Fabricland. I wanted the ribbon to coordinate with the colour scheme, so I pulled out a length and

coloured it with the same copic marker I used for the apron strings and measuring spoons. I used my bow easy to create my sweet little apron bow from the extra custom coloured ribbon.

Next, I went back to TE Sketch 126 for my inspiration. The tea kettle and oven mitts are die cut and coloured with copics and prismacolors. I stitched the green panel behind the images to coordinate with the stitching on the oven mitts. The rolling pin and ‘punny’ sentiment are two different images but work perfectly together. The frame is just cut with my paper trimmer and the opening is with a portion of a nestie.



Here are the links to the fabulous Baker’s Dozen. Can’t wait to see what they’ve created today!

Thanks so much for looking...
