It's Day 2 of TE sneak peeks for November and I'm very excited about the Whimsical Wishes sets and goodies today! Inspiration from the Baker's Dozen continues through Friday and all new products will be available for purchase tomorrow at 8AM PST at the Taylored Expressions store.
I wanted to go with something quick and masculine for my first card using Spectacular! and one of the new Spectacles Dies. My hubby's birthday is just around the corner so I'm ready! The wee heart is cut from the house charm in the new Handmade Charm Dies that are also part of this release. I've used Spellbinders Card Creator A2 Matting Basics to cut the eye chart sentiment and mat. I also added crystal effects to the heart to give just a hint of shine, but I'm not sure that shows in the photo.
I've used the more feminine frames from the Spectacles dies for this card and combined the sentiments "in my eyes" and "you're One of a Kind." The label stacklets make my focal look a little like a face, which wasn't what I intended, but hopefully it's different and cute. I've embossed the pink panel with the TE Hearts Impression Plate and cut the heart from the Tiny Toppers Dies set. And finally, I couldn't post today without showcasing the newest Moka—
Wanda—named after TE Baker's Dozen designer, Wanda Guess.
I totally CASEd the talented Jackie Pedro with my layout and focal tag, but I can't locate the inspiration--anything Jackie creates is incredible. I love the look of characters placed on patterned paper (I've used MME dolled up 6x6 paper for this card). I've combined several TE dies to create my tag—the base is cut with the TE Favor Frame die, the sentiment is cut with one of the new Label Stacklets 2 die and I've used the top of the Mark Your Spot Bookmark Die for the tag topper. The new Lace Chain Border Die adds a touch of pretty. Looking forward to the seeing what the TE Baker's Dozen and friends have cooked up for today.
