Taylored Expressions June Spotlights - It's a Patriotic Day!!!


Hello everyone!!! Today is the last day of the Taylored Expressions June Release....I hope you enjoyed all the fabulous samples from the Baker's Dozen Design Team this week!!! What is your favorite stamp set???  I don't think I could pick a favorite because I love everything...the stamps, die cuts, the cutting plates, and the project pantry kits!!!! You can find all the June Release goodies in the Fresh Out of the Oven section of Taylored Expressions!!!

Today is Designer Spotlight Day and we were able to choose whatever product we wanted to feature today.  I just love the papers, card stock, and ribbons from the Patriotic  Project Pantry Kit so I made two patriotic cards. 


The kit includes Doodlebug papers, card stock, and lots of yummy ribbon!! Check out the card in the middle of the bottom row...that was my card from Tuesday....Whoohoo!!!! 

My first card features the sweet little bird from the Delightful Day set...it was paper pieced with the aqua paper from the kit and the flag was also made from one of the kit papers.....a toothpick was used for the handle. The banners were made with papers and ribbons from the kit and the sentiment is from Taylored Expressions 4th of July Wreath set



The Graphic Greetings - Patriotic stamp was stamped with Versamark onto red card stock from the Patriotic Project Pantry kit and then it was embossed with white embossing powder. The edges were distressed along with the white and blue matting layers. The Ray of Sunshine Cutting Plate was cut out of the blue card stock in the kit and adhered to the background dp also from the kit. The ribbon was wrapped around the background layers and the crimped star, button, and twine finish it off.  

Now, are you ready to see some awesome inspiration from the Baker's Dozen Design team??


Thanks for visiting ....have a super special day!!!!
