Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks Day #2!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Tuesday!! I have another peek for you today of a simply FABULOUS set being released by Taylored Expressions tomorrow, August 5!!

This set is called Chillax...and it is SO awesome!!! For my first card, I stamped the lemons repeatedly onto Choice Buttercream with Memento Tuxedo Black to create my background. I then colored each with Copic Markers.

I used a piece of Early Bird paper from Cosmo Cricket, which I just LOVE with these images, and my main image, the glass of lemonade, was framed with Oval and Scallop Oval Nestabilities.

I stamped the sentiment, "if life gives you lemons make lemonade" directly onto my patterned paper, and finished off my card with double ribbons and some piercing!!



For my next card, I stamped this ADORABLE blender in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers. I used a Sakura Gelly Pen to add some shimmer to the "metallic" looking parts of the blender.

The sentiment, "you're so smooth" was stamped directly next to the blender, and I framed the entire image with Circle Nestablities!!

The paper is from the Girl Friday Collection from Cosmo Cricket, and I finished off my card with some buttons from SU! and a double ribbon of Whisper White Organza and Pink Pirouette Striped Grosgrain!!

This AWESOME set will be available tomorrow, along with Berries & Cherries that was peeked yesterday, and of course, the awesome Berries & Cherries Key Ingredients!!!
