HI Everyone,

We are continuing with release week sneak peeks at Taylored Expressions with more full sized stamps and more A La Carte stamps and more dies!! Today I have two projects to show - the first is from the Totally Tags Spring collection - which is a new set of tags to coordinate with the Totally Tags dies - perfect for cards, scrapbook pages and for little treats for Easter and Spring! This stamp set also perfectly coordinates with the Hello Spring and Easter Joy stamp set

Project 1: Totally Tags Spring

I love making little treats and the best part is creating little tags to go with them. It makes even the simplest little treat even more special to have a handmade tag. 

I created a little tag tin to hold the treats using the Clear Topped Hinged Tin and decorating it with one of the tags and papers from My Mind's Eye (Dwell): I used the Frame it Up 1 die and the Totally Tags dies for the front of the box:


I made 4 tags to fit in the box (you can fit a lot more - but with the layers and dimensional tape - four fits perfect :) I used the Tag Treats (set of 10) for my tag bases (you can pick any color card stock you want - and get 10 per color!!) Here is what it looks like when the tag box is opened:

And here is a closer picture of the tags - I love these sweet bunnies and the cute Spring Images:


Can't wait to package some treats and make more tags!!! :)


Project 2: Tip Toe Through the Tulips Dies from Taylored Expressions:
Taylor will be releasing so many fun new must have dies on Thursday - and one of my favorite is the die set calledL Tip Toe Through the Tulips!!! These dies are simply awesome - seriously!!! I made today's card just using the dies - the sentiment is "Happiness Always" and is from the Spring Cottage stamp set. Here is what this die looks like - it comes with one large tulip , one small tulip and coordinating stems and a leaf... SO many possibilities with what to create with this die set!

  

I used the dies and cut out the tulips from DP from the the My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Dilly Dally paper collection and die cut the leaves out of regular white card stock that I inked green. I created a little scene using the Clouds Border Edge die to sponge some clouds and used the Medium Scallop border die to create the grass. 


I  sponged the edges, chomped some corners and then popped up the tulips and their matching stems in the field of scalloped grass. I love how this turned out - and it was so easy with these gorgeous dies that already come with the groove for the tulip petals - so sweet!!

 I can't wait to see what the rest of the DT has created!! Please hop over and check out the gorgeous creations:
Big hugs,
Sankari
