Taylored Expressions December Spotlight Day: Shine Bright and Max and Muffin

Hello everyone!! Today is the Taylored Expressions December Spotlight Day...this is the day the Baker's Dozen DT pick our favorite stamp sets to play with.  I have to tell you how hard that is because I just love all the new (14 total) petite sets....each one has so many super cute stamps and sentiments!!! I finally decided to use Shine Bright and Max and Muffin. 

The chandelier stamp and sentiment from the Shine Bright set was stamped with going gray on the Choice Snow White card stock. A glue pen was used to add glue all over the image and then it was dusted with glitter. The image was then cutout with the Banner Stacklets 2 die along with the bashful blue mat...they were adhered to the background paper ...MME's  Cupid's Arrow 6x6 paper pad. 

The scalloped layer is from the same 6x6 paper pad and the sewing, distressing, seam binding, and sequins finish it off. 

My next card features the sweet little kitty pair from the Max and Muffin set....they both were colored with copics,  cut out with the Max and Muffin coordinating dies, and popped up on the Taylored Expressions Layering Doily Medium diecut. 

Washi tape was added along with the sentiment flag and the little wood heart  to finish it off. 

Now, how would you like to see some awesome inspiration from the Baker's Dozen will be blown away!!!!

Thanks for visiting me this week....release week is always so fun and full of new toys and inspiration...I'm glad you were able to come along for the wild ride!!!
