Taylored Expressions Previews: Day Two!

Hi everyone!! Happy Wednesday!!

Today is the 2nd day of previews for the latest release from Taylored Expressions, which will be available on Friday, February 4!!

I have two cards to share with you today using two sets that will be released on Friday, Fashionista and Wreath of Luck!

My first card features Fashionista, the latest addition to the Apple Doodle Ink line at Taylored Expressions!

I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored her with Copic Markers. All of the patterned paper is from the Be Mine collection from Echo Park Papers. I LOVE these papers, and I think Tena does too!

I LOVE the sentiment, "Birthday wishes for a true fashionista" and I cut it out and layered it with Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities. I added four pink Taylor's Tiny Twinkles underneath to make it pop. I also added some of the same Twinkles to the focal image.

The borders were created with the Scalloped Eyelet Border Die and I added tons of stitching and a bow created with the Bow Easy. As always, all the elements are popped up with Foam Tape.

Here is the Taylored Die I've used on my card today:

My second card today features a DARLING new Petite set, Wreath of Luck! I LOVE this set and it will get alot of use in my house...my hubs is Irish so I can make St. Patrick's Day cards for his side of the family now.

I kept this one SUPER simple as I really wanted to focus on the wreath. I started by stamping it in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and then cut it out with the Seasonal Wreath Die. I colored it with Copic Markers and then added some glitter to the shamrocks.

I used the Scallops & Circles Impression Plate to create the pattern on the background, and I thought, with this stamp set, it looked like a Celtic pattern. Some machine stitching and added two Glitter Candy Dots on opposite corners. The glitter and glitter dots are from the Lucky Sampler, which will also be released on Friday! It's chock full of everything you need for your St. Patrick's Day cards!!

Here are the Taylored Dies, and Impression Plate, I've used on my card today:
