Good morning SCT friends! We are pleased to welcome Taylor VanBruggen, owner of Taylored Expressions, to Card Cafe Thursday! Taylor is here to share a sweet card she created exclusively for us but also to share a brand new product! And we're very excited about this new product 🙂

SCTMagProject1Supplies (all Taylored Expressions unless otherwise noted): Stamps: Fresh Florals; Dies: Fresh Florals, Frame in Frame 2 Cutting Plate; Embossing Folder: Garden Party; Ink: Cookie Monster, Jelly Donut, Peapod, Strawberry Milkshake, Lollipop, Oreo; Cardstock: Sugar Cube, Lollipop, Cookie Monster; Other: Build a Scene Matched Sequins, Foam Tape (3M), Best Glue Ever (ScraPerfect)

"I love arranging small bouquets of stamped florals! I began by filling an entire sheet with stamped images from the Fresh Florals set in various colors of coordinating ink. Then I die cut everything with the coordinating dies. I used the Garden Party Embossing Folder to emboss the frame around the outside of a piece of Sugar Cube cardstock. Next, I stamped the leaves in Peapod directly on the inside of the embossed frame. The scalloped frame die-cut provides the perfect place to house a lovely bouquet and fits exactly in the open space of the embossed design. I then adhered the frame (cut from Lollipop cardstock) to the inner portion and began building my bouquet from there. Note: Give your bouquet dimension by choosing a couple blooms to elevate with foam tape. Finish by stamping the sentiment at the bottom and adhering the panel to a Cookie Monster card base!" ~ Taylor
