Taylored Expressions April Release Day…

Pam Sparks Some Like it Hot 1 Thursday

Welcome to my post for Taylored Expressions April Release! Today I’m showcasing the NEW ‘Some Like it Hot’ stamp set! So many FABULOUS sentiments! Made you smile!

The NEW April release products are in the TE store right now! YAY!

I used the NEW Build a Bookmark die cut from watercolor card-stock for the base and the ‘steam’. Then the NEW Stacked Mugs die cut in black card-stock and coated with Glossy Accents. (the steam too)  The die cuts the card-stock pieces to go behind the mugs too!  I used Red Pepper and Cookie Monster TE card-stock.

I inked the tag a lot with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, then I got the bookmark wet, threw on some Walnut Ink crystals and dried it with the heat tool.  An eyelet, ribbon and brad embellish the top. I love it!  We used to make everything brown and coffee stained, so it was fun to revisit this technique!

Here’s what I used for the bookmark…

Next up, a card…

Another fun sentiment from this NEW stamp set! This time I embossed it with white embossing powder.  The NEW Stacked Mugs is cut from white card-stock three times and glued together.  I used the flowers from the NEW Build a Bookmark to embellish the corners of the frame.
