Happy Wednesday! Today is the third day of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions and I have a very fun set to share with you today. It's called Glad Tidings and, like all of Taylor's stamps, it comes on high quality pink rubber, cut and ready to use with your acrylic blocks. I got to play with this darling and fun set from the Appledoodle Ink line and created a sweet nativity scene to help celebrate my favorite season!

The set comes with a very cute donkey, which paired up perfectly with previously-released animal images from Green Acres  and the sweet lambs from Hello Spring. Mary and Joseph and baby Jesus are all on hand, along with a manger and a terrific palm tree that could be used on non-Christmas inspired projects! This card was actually very simple to make. I used a circle die to cut a window and simply filled it with all this adorable images!
I used the new Holiday Wonder Pantry kit on this card and Taylored Expressions is offering a Basic Recipe Kit along with optional Spice it Up Ingredients that you can pick and choose from to build the kit just the way you want it.
