July TE Sneak Peek Day 1!


Happy Tuesday honeymuffins!!

It's time for our Taylored Expressions Sneak peeks to begin, and I
couldn't be more excited!!!  Of course, as always the stamps and Project
Pantry Kits are nothing short of gorgeous, but this month I am so thrilled about the versatility in this month's fabulous new
goodies!  There is truly something for everyone, and I just know you're going
to love it all too!!

I am kicking off my previews with a look at TWO of the new A La Carte
series of stamps featuring my personal favorite...Cuppie!!!  Today our
new Destination Cuppie has packed his bags and taken off across the US
for some much-needed jet-setting!!  Fasten your seatbelts ladies and
join me while I bring you:

Seattle Destination Cuppie!


Isn't he gorgeous???  I just looove Seattle..I mean how could I
not?? It's the homeland of Starbucks,
the birthplace of Jimi Hendrix, and
more importantly the place where my husband, Dr. McSteamy


Okay, technically he
doesn't really work there (and he sure
ain't my husband either
) but those are just minor pesky details right?? Smiley<br/>from millan.netAnyhoo,
as you may know I have a slight obsession with Grey's Anatomy so I
jumped at the chance to get to show you my little version of Seattle:


For my card I decided to watercolor
my image since I wanted kind of muted "rainy" tones.  I used some
gorgeous plum Prima flowers and some cute little Clear Crystals to add a little glam to my
card...sigh, don't they just look like pretty little raindrops???  I
also added a little lace trim
to add to the very vintage, and "cool" feel that is clearly part of the Seattle's charm!

My next card is SO very near and dear
to my little heart because it features none other than the gorgeous,
beautiful, trendy, chic, and super-fun city that I am proud to call

Destination New York Cuppie!

Don't you just love that NYC skyline??  This cuppie is just perfect for documenting your unforgettable trips to the city that never sleeps!! 

Forgive me, I'm totally gushing, but I do love my city!  sure, it's rather costly and noisy, and yes, you have never truly experienced "New York" until you ride the subway in the summertime, where you have the delightful choice of either getting your rump groped by random strangers, or having your nose pressed up against some smelly, greasy man's armpit (you know who you areSmiley from millan.net), but truly, that can only build character right??

Seriously though, I am so delighted to offer you a little bite of my Big Apple:


Is this too stinkin' delish or what?? I firmly believe you haven't lived until you see NYC at night, and that was totally the look I wanted for my card!  I colored my Destination Cuppie using Copic Markers, and added my city lights using Stickles all across the skyline and on my windows too!  I made my own ruffles using some gingham ribbon, and used some small foam squares to add my image panel and my sentiment to my card.  For my actual card I used a rough little template I made a couple of years ago for a Teacher's Card, and you can download it there as well.
