Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks - Day 1 !!!

Hi Everyone!

It's release week over at Taylored Expressions (wooooohooooo!) and today, the Baker's Dozen are welcoming the warmth and sunshine of spring with some major cute and adorable stamp sets and dies!!! I know that I am so ready to be done with winter and I absolutely loved creating my cards with these super happy sweet spring stamp sets and using the new Spring Project Pantry kits:  All of these super sweet sets today and this week will be released on Thursday, March 3 at 8am PST!

This first card is made using the Spring A La Carte stamp set - I love that you can purchase just one stamp and this stamp has sentiment and image combined. I colored in the sweet lettering of Spring and popped up the little birdie :) I paired this stamp sentiment with the frame from the New Beginnings stamp set and used the Frame it Up die and the  picket fence die from Taylored Expressions. I created a matching tag using this stamp frame and die with the Spring A La Carte stamp set and used it as a tag for a present of sweet chocolate :)

Here is a pic of the card with the sweet little butterfly that is cut from the Spring Project Pantry using the Butterflies (set of 3) dies from Taylored Expressions:

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Spring A La Carte stamp set and frame from New Beginnings stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Paper: Spring Project Pantry
Inks: copics, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Chalk ink - Rouge and Memento Ladybug Red
Accessories: All ribbons and brands and DP are from the SPring Poject Pantry, Butterflies (set of 3) dies from Taylored Expressions, Frame it Up die and the  picket fence die from Taylored Expressions, grass punch MS, and dimensionals

This second card uses the brand new to be released stamp set: It's a Banner Day 2 which has a coordinating die and some super super awesome sentiments that can be stamped into the banner. I used this stamp set with the sentiment: Happy Anniversary with the previously released stamp set: Favorite Peeps. I cut out a heart and matted it and stamped the image of the sweet birdie from the Favorite Peeps stamp set inside with the hearts from the Kid at Heart stamp set. I added the Banner Day 2 swirl at the bottom of the heart and finished it off with ribbons and papers from the February Key Ingredients kit. 
Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Favorite Peeps, Kid at Heart (hearts) and sentiment and banner from Banner Day 2 from Taylored Expressions.
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Angel Pink
Papers; Feb. Key Ingredients kit from Taylored Expressions
Accessories: liquid pearls, copics and dimensionals

JustRite Stamps: Our Friendship is Priceless

Hi Everyone!

JustRite Stamps is introducing so many amazing and beautiful new stamp sets - one of which is this gorgeous stamp set called Vintage Oval Labels. This stamp set is simply gorgeous and has these gorgeous oval frames and comes with different embellie stamps that you can stamp around the card for embellishment. I loved the frames and wanted to focus on one of the large frames. 

Card Ingredients: 
Paper: Kraft Cardstock
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Bahama Blue
Accessoires: Liquid pearls, bling, rose from Prima, stickles, dimensionals and copics

I stamped the frame onto kraft cardstock and then stamped the same oval frame again on a different piece of kraft cardstock. I cut out the center after stamping the sentiment: "Our Friendship is priceless" in the middle and popped it up on the frame. I colored in the edges with copics with blue and brown and finished it by adding a bit of glitter to the top of the frame and lined both edges with a border edge punch. 

There are some amazing new stamps that are being released this month that are joining the fantabulous JustRite Family - please check out all the details here at the JustRite Stamp site and you can check out all the creations with all of these stamp sets over at the JustRite blog here.

Together Forever!

HI everyone,

One of our dearest friends became engaged to another dear friend and I am so excited for her wedding coming up later this year! I wanted to send them a congratulations card that was bright and happy and full of our happy wishes :) I used the VLV sketch #3 from January that Teresa had created for this card and used the Up, Up and Away stamp set with the sentiment: Together for Ever from the Love Notes stamp set from Verve stamps and used one of the sweet little hearts from this stamp set along with the heart from the Text Objects stamp set from Verve. I love all of the balloons from the Up, Up and Away stamp set and its always hard to decide which one to use - but I used the circle one because then I could paper piece it with one of the DP's from the MME Love Me Do papers. I added a little heart from the Love Notes stamp set and added a little glitter to it and put it on the center of the balloon. 
Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Up, Up and Away stamp set, Love Notes stamp set from Verve (sentiment) and stitched heart from the Text Objects stamp set from Verve.
Paper: MME Love Me Do papers and PTI cardstock
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Ladybug Red ink
Accessories: liquid pearls, bling, dimensionals, baker's twine, dimensionals, chunky glitter and corner chomper

I love this sentiment "together forever" and I love all the different fonts in the Love Notes stamp set. I stamped the sentiment and created a little tag by chomping some corners and punching a hole that I added some twine too and attached to the ribbon. I finished it off with some bling, liquid pearl dots and some glitter on the clouds. I really had fun putting this card together and the best part will be to mail it to them (hopefully, I can actually get it in the mail before they get married - I am notoriously bad for making cards and never sending them out - so hopefully on monday - I can get to the post office and actually mail it off!)

Thanks so much for stopping by today - also - please be sure to stop by the Verve blog for more Verve-y goodness - and the SCS Verve forum for all the new March sketches!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)

JustRite Stamps: Song in my Heart Borders & Centers: A Friend is Someone....

Hi Everyone,

Today JustRite stampers are featuring a gorgeous new stamp set for our March release called: Song in My Heart (Borders and Centers, Interlocking). This stamp set features the oval sentiments with gorgeous oval borders and the sentiments are simply beautiful - so uplifting! I chose to use one of my favorite sentiments: "A Friend is someone who knows the Song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words." I love this sentiment!

Card Ingredients:
Paper: CC DP and kraft paper
Ink: Memento Inks Grape Jelly
Accessories: flower, liquid pearls, EK success punch and ribbon from stash (and dimensionals)

Because the sentiment is oval - I wanted to create lots of oval frames and so I popped up the DP with the oval frame cut out and popped up the oval frame and sentiment with different dimensionals in the center. I went for a purplely color scheme with a little bit of peachy orange like the CC papers and added a little liquid pearl to the edges. 

I finished off the card with a little border and a liquid pearl border and glittered sugar flower on the bottom corner. This is such a wonderful sentiment and perfect for any occasion for friend (birthday, thank you, friendship, thinking of you, etc.). Please check out the JustRite blog for more details and samples of this gorgeous stamp set!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)

Blast From the Past Blog Hop #8 from Taylored Expressions

 HI Everyone,

Every month, Taylored Expressions hosts a customer and fan blog hop where we feature all of the wonderful previously released stamp sets from Taylored Expressions. This month the theme was to GO GREEN! Well, I love green - it is one of my most favorite colors and I was all set to make a Lucky CHarms card, but then I saw one of my favorite sets lying out: Hangin' Out  - and so I switched gears and couldn't wait to play with this set! I used the sketch that is optional for this blog hop and got my "green" on!

Cloud Duo DieWhat was funny - is that I started to make my card, forgot about the sketch and then remembered at the last moment before putting it together - phew! :) I love this dress stamp that is in this stamp set and paper pieced this dress with one of the DP's from the Feb. Key Ingredients kit. I also used one of the new dies: Clouds Duo from Taylored Expressions to create the clouds and finished them off with some liquid pearls and finished the whole thing off with a little white gel pen.

I added some rolling hills and then added a little glaze and finished them off with some dotted liquid pearls. The top right corner was corner chomped (1/2") and I added the sweet sentiment: "Let's Hang Out" at the bottom. I love this stamp set and loved playing with the greens and black combo:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Prism cardstock, Buttercream Choice cardstock and DP from Feb Key Ingredients kit
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Accessories: white gel pen, liquid pearls, white glaze, twine, Cloud Duo die from Taylored Expressions, Spellbinder's circles, star punch from MS, bling from Bo Bunny bling

JustRite: Heart to Heart Stamp Set: Loving Thoughts

Hi Everyone,

There are some amazing JustRite stamp sets that are brand new and full of gorgeousness! One beautiful new stamp set is called Heart to Heart Borders and Centers (Interlocking) and is part of the JustRite Cling family of stamps and features a mix of oval borders with rectangle centers. I love the details of each of the borders and each of the sentiments are gorgeous and interchangeable with the border.

The sentiment: "Loving Thoughts" really caught my eye - it is so multi-purpose with how you can use it and I thought that I would create a simple card that could be for any occasion (sympathy, friendship, thinking of you, get well, etc.) I chose to have a simple palette: black and white and a soft color. 
Card Ingredients:
Paper: scraps of black and white DP, pink scraps
Stamps: Heart to Heart stamp sets from JustRite stamps
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Ink and Stazonwhite and Versamark (with WHite EP)
Accessories: liquid pearls, pink bling, butterfly punch, scallop from EK and ribbon from stash

I embossed the border in white and then popped up the center sentiment on a piece of rose colored paper and finished off the oval border with some white liquid pearl droplets. It was so simple and quick to create and thought it would be sweet to add a little butterfly to the bottom corner and a little liquid pearl scalloped row.

You can find so many beautiful samples that are on this JustRite blog that feature this gorgeous stamp set! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day!
Big hugs,

JustRite Stamps: Fancy Tags: HEartFelt Thanks!

Hi everyone,

I wanted to make a quick thank you card for a dear friend of mine who has gone above and beyond the call of friendship - she has always been there for me and I wanted to make a special card for her to thank her for everything she has done. I used the Fancy Tags set (Cling stamps from JustRite Stampers) for making this card. I LOVE all the sentiments in this set - and the possibilities of combining the different sentiments and tag images is endless! I love that there is a sentiment for every occasion! I used the Heartfelt Thanks sentiment for this card :
Card Ingredients:
Paper: Be Mine from Echo Park
Stamps: Fancy Tags (Cling) from JustRite Stamps
Ink: Tuxedo Black and RoseRed ink from Memento 
Accessories: EK success border punch, liquid pearls (platinum), ribbon frill, and dimensionals

I stamped the tag twice and then stamped the sentiment in one of the tag frames. I cut out the sentiment and popped it up on the fancy tag that I stamped in RoseRed ink. I added some embellies and liquid pearls and a little butterfly to the side. I also punched out a border on the bottom and added some liquid pearls to the border. I love how this card turned out! It was so quick and simple and that is always a plus!

I love these Cling stamps from JustRite - they stamp so beautifully - you can check out all the Cling stamps that JustRite has over here!

Sometimes the smallest things.....

Hi Everyone, 

Hope you have been having a great weekend! I had to take a little time off this week to get back to 100% - I was pretty sick last week - and this week was feeling so drained in my energy - had to take a little break and I am so happy to feel good both in mind and body :) Speaking of bodies, one of my dear friends just welcomed a new little somebody! She and her husband and son just welcomed a beautiful little girl who was born on Valentine's day (what a sweet present for Mummy!)

Here is a little scrapbook page made for the little Valentine when she was in her mother's belly and I used the Be Mine Echo Park papers for this 8x8 scrapbook page along with one of my most favorite sentiments from Verve's Plain Janes: Smallest Things which says: Sometimes the smallest things, take up the most room in your heart" (by Winner the Pooh). I love this saying and placed it next to my friend's beautiful belly :). 
I wanted to keep the palette more grays and pinks - and so I went with some different heart motifs punched from the different DP and added some cherry blossom embellies to her hair and bottom corner.
This beautiful photo was taken by my dear friend Juliet Jarmosco who is an amazing photographer and  simply an amazing soul! I love the silhouette that she captured as well as the contrast of light and dark. So sweet :)

Here is a close up of this beautiful sentiment - I love the font that Julee has created and I love that it perfectly pairs with the Classy Label Die from Verve that goes with the Love Notes Stamp set. I stamped the Label from the Love Notes Stamp set in black and then stamped the sentiment in pink and cut it out with the Classy Label die and then popped it up on the sentiment panel and finished it off by adding some hearts to the whole scrapbook page:

I then Framed the 8x8 scrapbook page in a shadowbox - it was hard to take a picture where the reflection did not glare - so I am sorry about the angle of the photo. I love that there are a lot of dimensions in this page and I love the muted baby girl colors - but most of all I love and adore this picture and am so glad that her little baby girl is here! yay!
Card Details:
Paper: Echo Park: Be Mine
Stamps: Love Notes stamp set and Smallest Things (Plain Jane) stamp set from Verve stamps
Verve Dies: Classy Label die
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and RoseRed
Accessories: liquid pearls, grand label dies, dimensionals, flower embellies, MS heart punch, Doodlebug Designs glitter, stickles, ribbon from scrap and 8x8 frame.

I loved the whole process of making this present for my friend and I am so excited for her in this new journey that she is beginning with her little girl :) Now, I can't wait to make a little scrapbook page of her little baby girl!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hope you have a wonderful rest of the weekend!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)

VLV FebSketch #3 - You're So Amazing!

Hi Everyone,

Every Friday over at SCS, there is a new Viva La Verve sketch to play along with and this week the VLV Sketch #3 for Feb 2011, is hosted by the lovely Teresa Klines with this beautiful sketch! I love all the fun elements in this card and couldn't wait to sit down and create a little somethin' somethin' :) But the only problem was that once I started creating a card, it kinda took a mind of its own and then when I looked down I realized that kinda interpreted the sketch kind of "loosely" :D .
I used the lovely Sweet Treats and Amazing Wishes stamp set from Verve Stamps and created a little background using the Jotted Heart Die from Verve. It was fun to create the little envelope and then have the sentiment fly out from it and then surround the sentiments with some glittered hearts:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Create Paper and PTI stamps
Stamps:  Sweet Treats and Amazing Wishes stamp set from Verve Stamps
Ink: Rich Coco from Memento
Accessories: liquid pearls, ribbon from stash, Jotted Heart Die from Verve Stamps, heart punch from MS, EK success punch, dimensionals, bling, glitter and hat pin

I really loved making this card - it was sooo lovely to get some stamp therapy today and I can't wait to see all the lovely creations that have been created with this great sketch over at the gallery.

Check out this post to get the scoop on how to play all 4 sketches this month and how if you do that - you could win some yummy Verve stamps!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
YOU guys are so amazing!!!
Lots of happy wishes for a wonderful weekend!

Color Throwdown #128: Dreams

Hi Everyone,

It's been so long since I have played along with the lovely ladies over at the Color Throwdown and as soon as I saw this awesome and fun color combo, I totally wanted to play along and couldn't wait to play.
I loved the different tones of red and pink and then the pop of purple with the black was really such a cool color combo!
I decided to make a CAS card - very simple and I tried to keep it really clean and have more white space with the strong colors:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: From stash and Taylored Expressions SNow White choice cardstock
Stamps: New Beginnings stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Ink: RoseRed Ink and Tuxedo Black ink from Memento
Accessories: liquid pearls, bling from Bazzill, corner chomper, Frame it Up Die #1 from Taylored Dies, Big Scallop die from Taylored Expressions, copics and dimensionals. 

I used the sweet sentiment: "If you can dream it, you can do it" from the New Beginnings stamp set from Taylored Expressions and used the Frame it up Die #1 to cut out the frame in this stamp set. The butterfly is stamped in RoseRed ink and then cut out and the rose is colored with copics and then glitterized and popped up on the bottom of the frame. I used different color papers from my stash for the different colors in this challenge and tried to keep everything very simple (no ribbon! --- gasp!!! :)

I love how this turned it out - I would have never combined colors like this and that's what I have always loved about playing the different color challenges - to have fun combining the different colors out there and seeing what comes out! I can't wait to look at everyone else's different color combination - you can see everyone else's creations for this color challenge #128 over here

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hope your day is warm and lovely!
Big hugs,

Happy Birthday Cupcake :)

Hi Everyone,

Frame It Up 1So it is officially freezing here - because its in the minus degrees! My sinuses are frozen along with my bones! Time for some warm tea and cupcakes to warm up :) lol! Speaking of cupcakes, I made a little cupcake card and coordinating gift tag for her present using one of my favorite Taylored Expressions stamp sets: For the Love of Cupcakes :) I adore all the cupcakes and sentiments in this set and I used the frame from the New Beginnings stamp set and coordinating Frame It Up die to create the tag and used it for the image panel as well. I love this panel (love love love love it :) its big enough for a tag or for holding both sentiments and images in an A2 card :) love that :) It was hard to figure out which of the awesome sentiments to use, but i had to go with the sentiment: "Happy Birthday Cupcake" - love that!
I stamped the cupcake twice and then colored it with copics and covered the chocolate with expresso dimensionals and cut it out for both the tag and card. 

Here is a close up of the card - I added some chunky glitter to the edges of the frame and added a strip of edged punch border along the center of the frame and some glittered hearts here and there and finished it off with some bling on the bottom:

Here is a closer picture of the tag that I created using the frame and the die and the same sentiments and cupcake. I added a little eyelet to the top to tie the ribbon in the gift:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: October Afternoon
StampsFor the Love of Cupcakes and New Beginnings 
Inks: Cottage Ivy and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
Accessories: heart punch, eyelets, chunky glitter, MS edge punch, rhinestones, liquid pearls, expresso liquid pearls, may arts ribbon

I had a fun time creating this little coordinating  gift set and the best part was seeing my friend open the gift and reading her tag :)

My heart is yours.....

HI Everyone,
Hope you are having a lovely start to your weekend! Let's just say, our weekend here can be summarized by one word: s-n-o-w ! It's everywhere  - just an ocean of white and can I just say that I can't wait for the greens of spring! Can I just say that as much as I love the white magic of snow - I have to say that I am SOOO ready for all of this white wonder to melt!!!! Bring on the greens of spring! Speaking of greens - aren't the greens/blues of this VLV sketch created by the lovely Amber for the VLV sketch for the first week of February so lovely? I love the sqaures and rectangles mixed in with the circle in the front - so cool! So I thought I would make a mini-ish Valentine's Day card with this sketch using the lovely new stamps from Verve Stamps :)
I used the super cool heart from the Love Notes stamp set from Verve with the sentiment from the Swirling Hearts stamp set. I love the different fonts in both stamp sets and I had fun be-jeweling this card with bling and liquid pearls :D

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Echo Park and Bazzil
Stamps: Love Notes stamp set , sentiment from the Swirling Hearts stamp set from Verve Stamps
Ink: Rose Red and Tuxedo Black stamps from Verve Stamps
Accessories: liquid pearls, MS heart punch, bling from Bazzil, dimensionals and ribbon from stash

It was so fun to create this mini- ish card (3.75 x 3.75) and it was really quick and simple - gotta love the quick cards! Can't wait to make more of these and change the sentiments around a little :). I love this sketch - and you can check out more of the details on how you can play along with this sketch and the rest of the VLV sketches for Feb. and how you can win some yummy Verve stamps!!!

Are you getting ready for SuperBowl Sunday? My DH is so excited - but I have to be honest that I more excited that I get to stamp during the SuperBowl :)

Hope you have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks - Day 3 !!!!!!

HI Everyone,

Today is Day 3 of sneak peeks over at Taylored Expressions where today the Baker's Dozen is featuring an awesome new stamp set called: It's a Banner Day 1, which comes with a coordinating Banner Day 1 die!! I love brand new dies! This stamp concept comes from the amazing Iwona Palamountain! This stamp set comes with 3 awesome banner shapes and all-around sentiments that coordinate with all stamp sets - so I chose to coordinate my banner project with one of my favorite stamp sets: Sprinkled With Love.

I made this card for a very dear friend of mine - she is simply the best! I can't even express how dear she is to me and I feel so lucky to have such a great friend and I can't wait to send this to her (I know you might be reading this - so please pretend to be surprised when you get it in the mail :) I used the Be Mine papers from EP and added a little blue ribbon for pop.
I stamped the banner and then stamped the sentiment "You're the Best"  inside it. I used the new Banner Die 1 to cut it out and then colored the edges in with black to create a border. I used the frame from the Kid at Heart stamp set to put the image of the hot fudge sundae from the Sprinkled with Love in the center. I have to say that I made myself a hot fudge sundae while making this card (which is a crazy thing to do in a blizzard, but coloring in this sundae made me so hungry!) :)

I used a little Expresso liquid pearls for the chocolate over the ice cream and some Fruit Punch stickles for the strawberry and some Christmas Red Stickles for the cherry

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Be Mine from EP
Stamps: Banner 1, frame from Kid at Heart and Sprinkled with Love stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Rose Red ink
Accessories: star pins, ribbon and bling from stash, dimensionals, copics, Expresso liquid pearls, Fruit Punch stickles, Christmas Red Stickles, EK success scallop punch and Banner 1 die from Taylored Expressions.

I finished it with a frame of white opal liquid pearls popped up the image over the DP and added some star pins to the ribbon. I can't wait to send this to her and I can't wait to check out the amazing creations from these amazing artistes with this super awesome stamp set - hop over with me and check them out:
