It's A Spring Spectacular!!!

Hi everyone!!! Happy Thursday!!! I am SOOOOOO super excited to share something TOTALLY awesome with you today!!!

You all know how much I LOVE the Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions right? Well, Taylor has done it again! You have to check out the fabulous Spring Spectacular Key Ingredients Kits being offered in limited quantities at a spectacular discount! And I mean SPECTACULAR discount!!!

Today my cards feature the Delightful Kit!!! I had SOOOOO much fun playing with this kit for SO many reasons!! The colors and papers are DELISH in this Key Ingredients, and I LOVE how well they work with my cuppies!! Of course, these Ingredients will work perfectly with any image you can think of!!!

For my first card, I used these darling cuppies from Downtown Diva, and stamped them on Choice Buttercream Cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored them with Copic Markers and then cut them out. I then adhered them onto this SUPER cute label, which is part of this Key Ingredients! I stamped my sentiment, "Friends Like You Are Priceless", directly onto the label!!! I used a flower die cut in the corner for some interest, and before adhering it to my card, I punched two small holes into the center with my Crop-A-Dile and threaded this GORGEOUS ribbon right through it! I just LOVE the way this came out!!!

For my next card, I used this ADORABLE cuppie from A Year of Sweets 2, and I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock (this is the neutral cardstock that comes with this Delightful Key Ingredients!!) and colored him with my Copic Markers!!

I framed him in this FABULOUS frame die cut from the kit, and the layout I used shows more of the GORGEOUS patterned paper in this kit!!

I added a row of scallops to my "belly band" and finished off this card with some paper piercing and double ribbons, also from the kit!!!

The sentiment is from A Year of Sweet Sentiments and I punched and layered it on Small, Large and Scallop Oval Punches!!!

For my last card, I used one of my favorite cuppies ever, this little cutie pie (er...cuppie...LOL!) from Doctor's Orders!!

I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black onto the Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers.

I created a layout with some circles as I really wanted to show off the GORGEOUS papers in this kit!!! Aren't they just AWESOME????

I finished off my card with TONS of piercing and a double ribbon knot!!!

So...of course you need to know all the details right?? The Key Ingredients being released today are slightly different than the normal Key Ingredients, and you can check out Taylor's blog post today to see all the information!!

There are FOUR, yes, FOUR new kits being released!! Enchanted, Dazzled, Brilliant, and the one I showcased today, Delightful and each kit is only $12.95!! How COOL is that?????
