Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks Continue!!

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! Welcome to Day #2 of Sneak Peeks for the amazing new Taylored Expressions release!

Today, the Baker's Dozen get to share peeks of TWO fabulous new sets with you, Favorite Peeps & Easter Blessings! LOVE these sets!!

For my first card, I used Favorite Peeps, which just may be my FAVORITE TE set ever (I say that alot don't I?). This set is SOOOOOO super cute, I just cannot wait for you to see the set in it's entirety!!

ALL of the cardstock, patterned paper, ribbon, button and flower on my card are from the Easter Key Ingredients, and the Rhinestones and the Pink Sparkly Fluff are from the Spring Sampler, both of which will be released on Friday!

So, this card was SO fun to make! I stamped the big egg twice in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White and cut them both out. I cut out the circle opening of one of them and then colored both with Copic Markers. I stamped the chick onto the back egg, and then stamped him again, colored him with Copics (how cute is he!) and then popped him up on Foam Tape. I added Pink Sparkly Fluff all on the bottom and I LOVE the look of it!! I then popped up the top egg with Foam Tape onto the bottom egg. It is super dimensional in real life!!

Isn't this paper GORGEOUS??? It's the Kioshi line by Basic Grey and let me tell you, this Key Ingredients is PERFECT for all of your spring/summer projects! The colors are a DREAM and the patterns of Kioshi are just gorgeous! Add to that fabulous ribbons, buttons and flowers and you can't beat it!

For my second card, I used the beautiful Easter Blessings set. This set has stunning sentiments and the most gorgeous cross images, as well as several other images too!

I really wanted to focus on the cross and the gorgeous quote from Matthew, "He is not here; He has risen, just as He said". Isn't that beautiful?

I started by stamping the cross in Memento Lulu Lavender and Memento Pear Tart onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and cut it out with Classic Oval Nestabilities. To keep with my white theme, I layered it onto Classic Oval Nestabilities.

My Choice Snow White Background was texturized with the Flowers Impressabilities (LOVE these) and the lavender cardstock, flowers and ribbon are all from the Easter Key Ingredients!!

You can check out the fabulousness of the rest of the Baker's Dozen right here!!
