I’m so excited about this month’s Taylored Expressions release and I’m sure you will be too!
Nancy has illustrated the prettiest tea set and miniature motif background sets that stand alone and coordinate nicely together! I have a pretty gift set to share with you that I made to give my sweet friend and design team member, Carolina for her birthday! I bought some ultra soft ivory knit material and stamped one of the background images in the Miniature Motifs in the set on it with old olive craft ink (heat set it), then hand sewed on a little crochet trim I got in the TE store (it’s sold out right now but there are some wonderful trims you can see here).
Here is a closer view of the card I made, it’s a little more frilly and feminine than I usually make (I’m no Melissa Sauls after all) but I like how quickly it went together and how it looks! The label in the set coordinates with Spellbinders Labels 9. I stamped one of the background images in the Miniature Motifs directly on some Basic Grey Origins paper. I love the flower in the Creativi-TEA set, I used the paper-tole technique on the centers. These sets will make wonderful cards & gifts for Mother’s Day, anyone who loves feminine images, tea and more!!
Available this release will be some Here’s a close up of the top of the tin so you can see the pretty scallop square I added a Missing You sentiment to along with a few tiny pearls.
