Hey there,'s finally first Sneak Peek for Taylored Expressions!  I'm excited to share two projects with you today!  The first uses the new Oh What a Holiday set.  This set comes with a whopping 16 stamps in all...nice, right?  *grin*  I think every holiday is pretty much covered.  Sooo gotta love that!  The Valentine image was stamped on Neenah, die cut then colored with Copic markers.  The layered banners add a fun element and a little bling completes the card.

Here's the inside...

The second card features the set called Hugs & Kisses comes with it's own coordinating die!  The image was stamped on Neenah, cut out with the die then colored with Copic markers.  A Copic Multi Liner was used to fill in the gap around the edge and the space above the lid was paper pieced to blend in with the background paper.  The entire glass jar (not the rubber gasket) has Glossy Accents on it.  The sentiment was die cut using the Designer Mini Tags and the Key to My Heart dies coordinate perfectly!  The paper and ribbon are from the Valentine Project Pantry Kit.  Love!
