Welcome back to day two of the Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks! Today the Baker's Dozen are showing you samples of a brand new set called Make The Grade, plus sneaks of a new mini set called Extra Credit and the new A la Carte Cuppies!!! Everything you see today coordinate with each other or stand alone perfectly!! There is lots to get to so I'll stop gabbin'!
This first set showcases the fantastic new set Make The Grade. I decided to make a gift set for one of my daughter's teachers. I made this adorable apple basket and a coordinating card. The basket is simply four Nested Apple dies from Spellbinders (the largest apple) that were embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and attached to the bottom of a 3x3 notecard box (tutorial here). The leaf is from another TE set, Luxurious Labels, and the DP is October Afternoon Report Card! The scallops on the handle were done with a Scallop Edge Punch. I intended to fill my basket with some chocolates, but it seems two young girls who shall remain nameless ate most of them!! So it looks like I'll need to head to the store so I can fill it up!
The card is 5x5 and was made with the same elements I used on the basket. The report card is part of Make the Grade and was stamped with two of the sentiments from the set in Pure Poppy ink. I roughed up the edges a bit with some scissors and added some stitching, New Leaf Twill Ribbon and a Pure Poppy button that was threaded with vintage twine.
This card is the last I have to show you today. It is an easel card that was made with one of the new A la Carte Cuppies and the new mini set, Extra Credit. Since I had all of the materials out on my desk from the above set, I decided to use them on this card! I paper pieced Cuppie's liner and used the smallest Nested Apple. The sentiment is from Extra Credit and was cut out with Spellbinders Labels Trio. Doesn't Cuppie look so cute? Also, if you haven't made an easel card yet you MUST! They are super simple and so much fun!
