Totally Pandas...Taylored Expressions Day 3!


It's LOVE WEEK here on day three of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions! I have two projects to share today, beginning with this first one, a clean and simple Valentine's Day card using the new A la Carte set, Pandas in Love. (Keep reading for information on some really fun GIVEAWAYS!)


For this card, I stamped and colored in the darling pandas on cream cardstock. Then, very carefully with a sharp hobby blade, I cut around the bamboo and mounted the panel on some pink cardstock. 
Enabler Alert! TE is running a special on these darling Animals in Love sets! Buy any of the three new sets and receive one released in 2011 for free! Check out Taylor's blog below for details.


Next, I created a set of mini Valentine's cards using the oh-so-fab new set, Totally Tags Valentine. Yes, you can make some really cute tags with this terrific set (and coordinating dies,) but I used some of the images to create some easily reproduced V-Day cards.

 


The new Valentine Project Pantry includes these absolutely adorable heart-shaped adhesives and coordinating ribbon. I added some glitter to each mini-card for some sparkle, too.



I just love all the sweet images in this set. I finished each quick and easy card with some Liquid Pearls.
