Taylored Expressions December Sneak Peeks: Petite-a-Palooza Day 1

Hi Everyone!

Happy December! Can you believe it - the end of the year is just around the corner! With a new month, comes a new release from Taylored Expressions - all of the stamps being released today are petite stamp sets! This is the 3rd Annual Petite-a- Palooza celebration and this year there will be 14 new petite stamp sets that will be released and they come with coordinating dies!

For my first stamp set , I used the new to be released stamp set called Light A Feather ad it comes with coordinating dies!!! I love this stamp set - there are so many different lovely sentiments and three  gorgeous feathers! I stamped mine in different ink colors and then die cut them out and ted them all with some twine -  a little bouquet !

Here is a little close up of the card - I created a banner using the Party Banner Border Die and then arranged them overlapping and then tied it together with some twine. I LOVE the sentiments in this stamp set - so positive and lovely for the heart!

Card Ingredients: 
Stamps: Light as A Feather by Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Bahama Blue, Teal Zeal, Canteloupe, Ladybug Red 
Papers; Snow White Choice card stock and Simple Stories DP
Accessories: May Arts Twine, EK Success scallop border punch, corner chomper, Party Banner Border die, Bling and gray ribbon

For my second project, I made a little card set using another new petite that will be released on Thursday called: Oh Happy Day! And first of all can I just say that I love the title of this stamp set - just love it - and suddenly, I have this song stuck in my head :) I tried to keep the card set simple so that it can be duplicated easily. 
I created a little scene using the Build A Scene: Rolling Hills dies and Cloud Border Edger die. 

After die cutting the hills twice, I used different combinations of the hills to create these four cards and used a paper crimper on one of the hills with some sponging for a little dimension. This petite stamp set has four fun flowers - and each card has one of the flowers (with a little bit of the glaze on it) and some of the different sentiments - here are two of the four cards:
I die cut the Banner Stacklets 1 dies to create a flag in the background and then die cut the scene sizes using the Pockets and Pages: 3x4 Essentials die and then added a little bit of linen ribbon to the top corner and And here are the other two cards in the set:

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Oh Happy Day! from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Ladybug Red
