TE Sneak Peek Day 1: Bakery Business and Window Shopping

window of sweets
The Baker’s Dozen Design Team has something EXTRA exciting to share with you today - a whole new line of rubber stamps called Apple Doodle Ink! We are launching this FUN new line with two stamp sets designed to coordinate perfectly together; Window Shopping and Bakery Business. Taylor is working with a new illustrator on this line and I'm loving the whimsical/cartoon-like quality style!
The first card combines both sets for a fun and sweet store front shopping experience!  I love the sentiment, “I’ve never met a cupcake I didn’t like” and I concur** with that!  I used January key ingredients for both of these cards, with papers from Basic Grey’s Nook & Pantry line!  In the front of this card, I used acetate for it to really be a window!

On my second card, I just used images in the Bakery Business set which can stand alone or be paired with the fun window shopping set!  I started to use the fall-to-layout sketch 76 but I flubbed with the sentiment and didn’t leave enough room for my four-square of images.  So, I improvised and still love how the card turned out!  No accidents with stamping – I love this craft!!  It leaves a LOT of room for creativity to be at work!  I put a few red rhinestones in between the inchies for more color.

I love these gals and miss ‘em already! 
Be sure to check out what the Baker’s Dozen (BD) gals have to share with you and be sure to check back tomorrow for more sweet creations!!
