Taylored Expressions January Release Day: Marley and Dies Galore!!

Hello everyone and welcome to the Taylored Expressions January Release Day....Woot!!!! Today all the fabulous stamps and dies are for sale in the New Section of the Taylored Expressions Store!!!!! 

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays because it's so full of love, happiness, and chocolate!!!!! Check out the Valentines I made today.....

Our son, David, and his wife, Stacy, have two Basset hounds  so I made then a Valentine from our dog, Pumpkin, with the Marley set....I know Marley is a Dachshund but we will pretend he is a Bassett for today...LOL!!!

He was colored with Copics and cutout with the Marley coordinating die....he was popped up over the washi tape and the little paw from the same set was stamped with Memento Lady Bug. The sentiment was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and the hemp cording and enamel shapes finish it off. 

My second Valentine features several new Taylored Expressions dies to include the Heart Stacklets, Tag Stacklets 2 dies, Tag Reinforcements,  the 3x4 Pocket - XOXO and the Love Makes The World Go Round Stamp set was used for the sentiment. 

The Tag Stacklets 2 was used to cut out the beautiful MME Heirloom papers. The Tag Reinforcements die was used over the hole and then the twine was added. The hearts were cut out with the  Heart Stacklets dies and the XOXO Pocket Die was cut out of dark red cardstock and adhered over the tag and doily. The sentiment is from the Love Makes The World Go Round set  and the small wood heart and arrow  finish it off. 

Now, how about a little inspiration from the Baker's Dozen...I can't wait to see what they have created today!!!!

Thanks for joining us this week for all the Taylored Expressions January Release fun....I hope you found a little inspiration along the way!!!!

After seeing these two cute cards I am inspired to get off my tush and stamp stamp stamp. I love how how you mounted that cutie beagle. And then there's the wonderful die cuts and layers on the second! How you used the arrow and heart is just so much fun!
