Baby Gift Tag, Card, and Box with Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions

Hello friends!!  I was featured on the Taylored Expressions blog last week with these fun projects that I created with the April Key Ingredients kit.

I created this for a neighbor that recently had a baby.  For the stamps and dies on the card and tag, I used the April Stamp of the Month called Made with Love and the coordinating die set called Stitched with Love.  I made the box with simple cutting and scoring along with the Bloom Where You're Planted dies.  Take a closer look at these projects......

You can find the tutorial for how I made the box above over on the Taylored Expressions blog HERE.

Do you want a peek at the baby afghan that I croched and wrapped in the brown paper package??  Take a look......

Don't forget to get your Key Ingredients and Stamp of the month kits from Taylored Expressions by the end of the month, because they won't be available after the 30th.  You can also get them both combined into the Deluxe Kit for a discounted price.

I hope you have a great Easter weekend!!

Poppy Sketch #2 : From The Kitchen Of

Hello and welcome!!  Today I am sharing a card that I created for Poppy Sketch #2 that just went up today.  I am so glad to see that many of you participated in the last Poppy Sketch....I hope that you will also find time to join us for the second one as well.  

I got to work with some fun stamps from Stampendous!  Here is my take on the sketch with a POP of color added for the challenge........

I stamped the image in London Fog ink from Memento.  I added some pencil coloring to the silverware in the middle of the image and also a little bit of Copic to the little pepper in the bottom corner.  I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the white and red cardstock for added texture.  I finished off the image with some brads and some stitched ribbon.

Take a look at the sketch from Laura for this challenge......
I hope you can hop on over to the Poppy Sketches blog to join us for this fab challenge....I can't wait to see what you create.
