Taylored Expressions March SOTM and Key Ingredients Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the Taylored Expressions March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!!! The Baker's Dozen DT is teaming up with the Key Ingredients DT to showcase the March SOTM called Take a Spin, the coordinating dies called Spin It To Win It, and the March Key Ingredients Kit which contains patterned papers from the Simple Stories Daily Grind collection and  coordinating card stock 

The Stamp of the Month and the Key Ingredients Kit are monthly subscriptions with three options. You can read all about it here in the Kit Department of the Taylored Expressions Store.  

Here are the March  SOTM called Take a Spin,  the Key Ingredients  kit, and the coordinating dies called Spin It To Win It which are sold separately. 

The spinning wheel die was used to cut out the patterned papers and the card stock from the March Key Ingredients kit. The arrow was adhered to the wheel and an enamel dot was used in the center. Banners were hand cut and adhered behind the wheel and sewing was done around the edges of the background paper. 

The sentiment was stamped on Choice Snow White card stock and the hemp cording and enamel dots finish it off. 

I just love the Key Ingredients Kit because it has so much paper....since I had lots of scraps left over from my first card I decided to make another card.

This time I created the wheel with the wheel stamp from the Take a Spin set. I stamped three wheels, one red, one mustard, and one green. They were all cutout with the Spin It To Win It die and adhered to a solid card stock circle background. The arrow and it's circle base were cutout with dies from the same set and adhered with foam dots. The enamel shapes were added along with cork circles that were cut out with the same circle die. Sewing was done on the patterned paper strips and background and the bunched up twine finishes it off. 

Now, how about a little inspiration from the Baker's Dozen Design Team and the Key Ingredients Design Team....I can't wait to see what they created with these super fun stamps and dies!!!!

Thanks for stopping by...have a great day and be sure to stop by the Taylored Expressions Store to check out the SOTM and KI are going to love them!!!!

Amazing cards, Joan. I love all the little details that went into each of one. Love the banners and the addition of textured embellishments. The turquoise paper really makes your spinners pop! Thank you for the inspiration.
