TE Beary Special Sneak Peek



Hey all! It's sneak peek time at Taylored Expressions. Today we're showing you the incredibly cute Beary Special and Beary Special Accessories sets...they'll be in the store and available for purchase this Friday, June 5th at 8 a.m. Pacific time. The bear and birthday sentiment are from the Beary Special set, the balloons and party hat are from the Beary Special Accessories set.

In my opinion, these are must-have sets! Not only are they super cute, but they're part of the quarterly TE Giving Tree charitable program. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Sick Kids, a healthcare community dedicated to improving the health of children. You can find out more about this wonderful organization by visiting Taylor's blog.

Both of these sets were designed by Nancy McKinney. The Sick Kids charity is very special to Nancy personally, as they directly helped her family. Stop by Nancy's blog today for the story of her son Henri. Also, just a reminder that these sets will need to be trimmed from the sheet of rubber when you receive them. This not only saves costs on manufacuring but it enables TE to donate even more to the charity.

Now, onto some details about my card today...

Both nestie panels are up on foam tape. The balloons were stamped on DP, cut out, and paper pieced over the main panel. I used thread for the balloon strings and secured them with a clear adhesive rhinestone that I colored with a RV34 Copic. The teddy bear and sentiment are both heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Here's the inside of the card with another paper pieced balloon from Beary Special Accessories:
