Get Well Soup-er Soon!!

How has the year stared out for you??  Can you believe that we are at the end of January already??  Well, it seems like everyone around here has some kind of cold or flu bug.  I thought this card would be a fun and humorous way to wish someone well.



I used the new Souper Soon stamp and coordinating die set from this month's Petite-A-Palooza release with Taylored Expressions and colored in the little soup can image with my Copic markers.  I added some white pen details to him and then added him to my card.  Here is a closer shot of this fun image.....

I used the new Rainbow Brights paper pack along with some Sugar Cube and Cherry Pop cardstock.  The bottom part of the card is embossed with the Diagonal Stripe embossing folder.

I hope that if you are not feeling well, this card will brighten you day and that you have a great weekend!!

Hugs,
Amy

A Little Birdie Told Me.....

As I scroll through my news feed on facebook, I see lots of birthdays this month.  I thought it would be a good time to share this fun birthday card I created with some of the new release over at Taylored Expressions.  I used the new Paw-some stamp and coordinating die set on this card.....take a look....

I colored in my stamped image with Copic markers and added some white pen details.  I mounted the stamped and die cut image onto a piece of Sugar Cube cardstock that I cut with the Instant Photo Frames die and then stamped the sentiment on the bottom.  The banners are cut with the Party Banner Border die.  Here is a closer look at the image....

The patterend papers on my card are from the new Rainbow Brights paper pack.  I finished off my card with some stitching with my sewing machine.  You can see this and all of the newly released items from Taylored Expressions HERE.

So, if you have recently had a birthday or have one coming up, I hope your Birthday is wonderful!!  And, I hope that you all will have a great day!!

Hugs,
Amy

January Release Day with Taylored Expressions

Hello friends!!  Today is the January Release day over at Taylored Expressions.  It is also one of my favorite releases because it is Petite-a-Palooza.  You have got to check out these fabulous new petite stamp sets.

Today I am sharing a card I created with the new Ships Ahoy stamp and coordinating die set.

I colored in the cute little ship from the Ships Ahoy stamp set with my Copic markers and then added some white pen details.  The clouds are from the new Build A Scene - Rolling Clouds dies and I used the negative space on the Medium Scallop Border die for the waves.  I topped each wave with a snow writer pen from DecoArt.  The sun is die cut with Spellbinders Circle Nestabilites from the new Rainbow Brights paper pack.  The sequins are from the Rainbow Brights sequins.  Take a closer look......

To finish off the card, I added a sentiment from the Ships Ahoy stamp set.  If you haven't had a chance to check out the full release, hop on over to the Taylored Expressions blog to see all the new sets....don't forget to check out the other designers blogs to see what they have created with the new yummy sets as well.

You Make My Heart Sing

Hello everyone!!  Well, I have made it through most of the holidays and we are almost to the New Year.  I thought I would take a bit of a break and share another new card I created with the December release from Taylored Expressions.

I created this card with the new You've Got Mail - Valentine stamp along with the new Formula For Love papers and the Diagonal Stripe embossing folder.

I colored in the image with my Copic markers and added some white pen details.  I used the Banner Stacklets 1 dies to put my image on.  The sentiment comes from the Splish Splash stamp and die set.  Take a closer look at my card.....

To finish off my card, I added some stitching with my sewing machine and tied it all up with some turquoise ribbon and a button.

So, how has your December been??  Did you keep busy or have a relaxed month??

Hugs,
Amy
