It’s time to shop! But first, we have more new stamps and dies to show you. We are featuring Let’s Chat, Up a Tree, Mixed Blooms, Dial in Style Dies, Let’s Chat Telephone Dies.
Today I’m featuring the gorgeous set, Mixed Blooms. How do you not love this bouquet of flowers? I used Circles Background and added a layer of vellum to it for a soft background. The bouquet was colored with Copics and a bit of sparkle was all I needed for it to be finished. I love this sentiment and think it’s perfect for birthdays, thinking of you, and pick me up cards.
Today I’m also showing off a fabulous new die, Bake Me a Cake. This is such a fun die! I used mine on a card but was tempted to make a magnet with it. I added paper glaze and some chunky glitter to bring it to life and used a sentiment from You Take the Cake. I love the shape of the cake and all the fun elements to it!
Here’s Bake Me a Cake:

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I know, Tuesday is an odd “Happy” day but I have a good reason. Two lucky ladies have been added to Taylored Expression’s Baker’s Dozen Design Team and I am one of them! Yay! I can hardly believe it but I was so thrilled to be asked to be a part of this amazing team. The other lucky lady is Shannon White. She’s a genius at coloring and her work shows it! Be sure to leave her some love!
My card today uses Make It Amazing, which simply put, is a gorgeous set and so versatile. I used white embossing powder on vellum and die cut the butterflies with the matching dies, Elegant Butterflies. Frame It Up 3 is another die that matches this set and I used it inside of the square. The background paper is Lily Bee Design Buttercup and is one of my favorite paper packs!
If you’re not familiar with Taylored Expressions, be sure to check out the store. The stamps are rubber and mounted on cling and are excellent quality. If you’re in need of some inspiration, be sure to take a peek at the gallery.
If you’d like to get to know the other team members better, take a look at their blogs. You’re in for a yummy treat!

I received my new Silhouette SD safe and sound over the weekend (Thanks, Michelle!). Wooohooo! This little cutter looks small next to my Maxx, but don’t let that fool you. The dress and heart cut beautifully. I cut the dress out of white card stock and vellum, then embossed the skirt of the dress. The bottom layer of the skirt is vellum. I was impressed with the quality of the cuts and the detail is amazing. I’ll have more to show you later but wanted to get this card posted. I am thrilled with the Silhouette SD and will be cutting a lot more with it. Don’t worry, this in no way takes the place of my KNK Maxx, but rather, is a welcomed addition. Thanks for stopping by!

Can you tell I love this set? I promise I have other projects that don’t use these butterflies, but humor me while I share yet another butterfly card. This card was made using Oh Hello Flutter, cut in different sizes. The smallest butterfly has glitter glass for some sparkly texture. I used Nestabilities to cut the frame and used vellum for the window. I love the light the vellum lets through. Thanks for looking!

A sympathy card for a close friend. I stamped the image using Ruby Red and Old Olive and added some vellum. A tiny ribbon completed the detail. I added the two bottom brads when the vellum layer started to curl and refused to lay flat (forgot that I had vellum tape!).
