Taylored Expressions January Spotlights: Happy Spring and XOXO!!!

Hi Everyone!

Yesterday, Taylor released a whole bunch of yummy goodies and today the design team is doing some fun spotlight hops to show case the newly released stamp sets! Today, I am showing samples from two super super cute sets called: "Oh What a Holiday" and "Stuck on You"! So cute!!

My first card uses the "Oh What a Holiday" set (which is perfect for all the holidays through the year with sentiments to match!) Love it! I used the sweet little bunny for my card with the sentiment "Happy Spring" - as much as I am enjoying the winter (said with just a touch of sarcasm) - I am truly looking forward to spring - one of my favorite seasons (the favorite one being autumn). I used the Love Tree die that I showed on yesterday's post and created little spring leaves for the tree and put it behind the little bunny (don't you want to sing... "little bunny foo foo " now :)
I used the Banner Stacklet dies to create my sentiment hanging off to a side - I also popped up my tree and bunny - here is a closer peek at the dimensions:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Scraps of green, brown and pink cardstock and Choice Snow White paper
Stamps: Oh What a Holiday from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Bamboo Leaves
Accessories: Banner Stacklet dies, Love Tree dies, MS grass punch, corner chomper, copics, dimensionals

It really felt so refreshing to create a spring card - and I love that this image could be used for easter, birthdays or to weclome spring - love this sweet bunny!! And speaking of sweet little animals - check out the sweetest Hedgehog in the Stuck on You stamp set - seriously - seriously - SOOOO cute!! So cute, that I made 5 little notecards using the Scalloped Notecard die that Taylored released yesterday to create 5 little mini Valentine's for my little nieces and nephews - here they are all in a line:
And because I couldn't decide which picture I like better - here is another one of them :
I cut out the notecards using the die and then started a little factory - stamping and cutting the little sweet hedgehog, creating a sky background, cutting all the grass and the string of hearts (which is a stamped image from the set) - I then added a little twine and glitter to heart balloon as a finishing touch - and the whole time I was making this project, I was SOOOO happy and in love with this little cutie - here is a little close up !

Card Set Ingredients:
Paper: Choice Snow White paper and some green cardstock for grass
Stamps: Stuck On You stamp set from Taylored Expressions
