Taylored Expressions December Release Day!


Pam Sparks Picture Perfect Valentine Thurs



Taylored Expressions December release is here!  Time to think about Happy Heart Day!  Valentines! I admit I wasn’t quite ready to myself but once I got started, I was delighted with the new stamps and dies!

I’m featuring the NEW Picture Perfect Valentine Dies today.  I love the TE series of stitched frames and words. I added a little ‘snow’ Frosted Lace stickles to the tops of the words and banners.

The colored images I’m using in my cards today are from the Love Makes the World Go Round  stamp set and with this release there are dies to cut out three of the images from the set too! I fussy cut this penguin by hand though.  It’s colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  There’s a NEW Swiss Hearts Embossing folder and a NEW Banner set called Skinny Mini Valentine Borders and a NEW Love and Be Mine Borders dies set. 




Pam Sparks Love Makes Couple



I was so tickled with how this whimsical scene turned out!  I used the new cardstock color Mint Julep from last month to ‘play’ off of.

The darling couple is part of Love Makes the World Go Round die set that is part of the release this month.  Such a cute stamp set and I had so much fun coloring them in a ‘sketchy’ kind of way, with Copic Sketch markers.

The other TE dies I used are Build A Scene Winter Trees dies, Build A Scene Central Park dies and the Neighborhood Border die.

I swiped Distress inks on the Neighborhood Border die and the background embossing folder is Snowfall. The sentiment is from the TE stamp set Ready, Set, Snow, inked with Shaded Lilac Distress ink.




Pam Sparks Love Makes The World Go Round Pigs



Did you laugh at this one?  What a cute couple!!!  See why I told you I ended up having so much fun with this stamp set?! lol

Some more sketchy Copic coloring…then die cutting the piggies with the NEW die set.  I stamped the background stamp twice but leaving off the sun and cloud on the right.  Carrying over that mint julep influence.  😀

Last one!



Pam Sparks Love Makes House



The House and sentiment are from the same stamp and die sets.  Colored with Copics.  Floral Vine embossing folder with white gel pen highlights and die cut with the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets.  I used the Welcome Home Stamp set and Build a House dies for the banner.
