Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

Hello everyone and welcome to the Taylored Expressions April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!!! The Baker's Dozen DT is teaming up with the Key Ingredients DT to showcase the April SOTM called Made With Love, the coordinating dies called Stitched With Love, and the April Key Ingredients Kit which contains patterned papers from Carta Bella's Sew Lovely 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 April  SOTM called Made With Love,  the Key Ingredients  kit, and the coordinating dies called Stitched with Love which are sold separately. 

My card featured the sewing machine stamp and the sentiment from the Made with Love stamp set and the coordinating sewing machine, dress form, and button dies from the Stitched With Love die set. 
The KI kit patterned paper was adhered to the background layer and sewing was done along the top edge. The sentiment was stamped and the bling was added to the word Love. The buttons were cut out of the KI patterned paper as was the dress form and they were popped up with foam tape.

The sewing machine was stamped with pink pirouette, cut out with the coordinating die, and adhered to another die cut sewing machine cut out of the navy card stock.....the twine is the finishing touch.

Now, how about a little inspiration from the Baker's Dozen DT and the Key Ingredients DT...they have created some awesome projects to share with you today!!!

Thanks for stopping by....have a great day!!!!

I am in love with your sewing dies! Used to make all my clothes and they never wore out! Had to throw them away... Your sentiment is perfect with them and the colors and cut out buttons are wonderful with them too! Love what you did with the O in 'love'.
