Taylored Expressions November Release 45

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, November 4, 2010 @ 12:00 AM | ,

*** I have TWO posts today*** Please click HERE for my Waltzingmouse Stamps November Release Day #1 post.

Here to share what I created for the Taylored Expressions November release using stamps from both From the Heart and What's Cookin'? sets. BOTH of these sets are NOW available for purchase at the Taylored Expressions store.

First up, is a lil' jar full of white chocolate covered pretzels adorned with a tag and some very colorful DP from the Doodlebug Welcome Home collection  Using the pretzel stamp that is in the From the Heart set, I inked it up with VersaMark ink then embossed with fine white embossing powder, repeating these steps to create a nice little border.
To create the tag, I first inked up & stamped the circular sentiment then stamped/embossed the pretzel Up close you see the nice solid pretzel image that was stamped using VersaMark then embossed with fine white embossing powder. Amazing how adding just a lil tag really dresses things up! BOTH these sets are packed full of so many versatile fun images!
Next up, is a sweet card showcasing the beautiful apron image and fun sentiment from What's Cookin'? I LOVE this sweet apron :) What do you think? To add color, I pulled out the Copic R83 Rose Mist and R81 Rose Pink markers. After coloring, I trimmed around the apron & pocket, inked the edges, embossed the pocket & skirt then using a very sharp scissor, trimmed around the perimeter. What do you think of that sentiment??? PERFECT for any crafty friend!
Here's a better look at the sweet apron:
That's all I have for today, I hope you head on over to see what Taylor and the Baker's Dozen DT have created:

Thank you very much for visiting! I hope you have a terrific day :) Be Sweet!
