TE Release Day: Father’s Day A La Carte and more Cuppie in the kitchen!


It’s release day at Taylored Expressions!  Today the Baker’s Dozen and I are sharing creations made with 2 new stamps in our Apple Doodle Ink line; Father’s Day A La Carte images!!  The one I am sharing is a fun way to display a man’s tools – in the form of the word Dad – how cool is this?!? It’s called Dad Tools and there is also Real Classic with a cool classic car!  They each come with an image and 2 sentiments for just  I used the Garden Party Project Pantry kit for my card, in addition to some screw brads (how PERFECT are these for this image?) and hemp twine (the manly ribbon).  The image was colored with prismacolor pencils blended with odorless mineral spirits.


Next up is Cuppie in the Kitchen again!  I just love these images!  This one has cuppie wearing a stylish apron (paper-pieced with the In the Kitchen Project Pantry kit (you can see this post of Taylor’s with complete details and a picture!).  I also added some lime green stickles to cuppie that also comes in the kit.  I had a lot of fun making this card and stitching with some red thread (sometimes white gets a little boring to me).  I even tried my hand at stitching in a circle (not too bad but I messed up a little of the right – oh well!)

All the products are available for purchase now; remember the specials (project pantry and coordinating stamp set bundles are available at a discount for just 3 days).  Also don’t forget when you go shopping, you can see all the NEW products that are FRESH OUT OF THE OVEN all in one place. 

Here are links to all the inspiration the design team have to share with us today, be sure to check it all out and leave some love for us all (especially our guest designer, Sandra)!

I will have a special post/news after my finals next week (I have tests on Mon, Tues and Weds evening); please bear with me while I take about a week’s break from posting to crash – HA!  I can hardly believe I made it through the semester working full-time, going to school 4 nights a week, studying and keeping up with my design team work for almost 4 months!   Thank you to EVERYONE for your support, prayers and for continuing to visit my blog when I haven’t had much time to leave y’all some love *smile*
