Taylored Expressions November Sneak Peek Day 2!

Hello! Happy Wednesday! Welcome to Day 2 of Taylored Expressions November Previews! Today we are previewing Spectacular, Totally Tags - Handmade, Signature Style, Moka Wanda, Glasses & Staches, Many Minis - Occasions, Spectacles Dies, and Handmade Charms Dies. All new products will be released tomorrow @ 8:00 AM PST in the TE Store!

We will be having a Preview Party tonight at 6:00 PM PST. This will be your chance to see full sets and there will be a SPECIAL Facebook GIVEAWAY. The party is always fun and fast-paced! Be sure to join along HERE! The Baker's Dozen team will also have new release projects to show you through Friday!

I have two cards to show you today. The first one uses Spectacular, a fun set of images and sentiments illustrated by Nancy McKinney as part of her Whimsical Wishes collection.

I kept my card VERY simple and used no patterned paper. I started by making my own patterned paper by randomly stamping two of the spectacles and the sentiment "Spectacular" on Choice White cardstock. I matted this onto black cardstock and added stitching around. Next, I cut out a window using the new Label Stacklets 2. I die cut the same window on my card base and stamped "Can You See How Wonderful You Are?" on the inside of the card.

Signature Style is the newest TE Sampler set! It was concepted by Baker's Dozen team member, Wanda Guess, and it is full of 17 images (with illustrations from all of our designers) that allow you to sign your stamped creations. I stamped the back of my card with the simple fluttering butterfly (colored with Copics).

This is the new Taylored Die that I used on my Spectacular card:

My second card uses the newest Moka Girl... Moka Wanda and the new Many Minis - Occasions set. Moka Wanda was also illustrated by Nancy McKinney, and this set was also suggested by Wanda, (hence the name Moka Wanda!).

I stamped and colored Moka Wanda. I added of the mini sentiments onto a Mini Tags Die. I stamped the back of this card with the matching stamp from Signature Style (also colored with Copics):
