Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks: Made in the Shade 2 and In Other Words: Travel Stamp set

Hi Everyone!
Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the TE blog each Sneak Peek Day this week for details on how you can enter to win!! 

Today, I am excited to share two sneak peeks - the first being a stamp set that perfectly coordinates with the Shade Tree Cutting Plate that was previously released. This stamp set has such cute images and I loved the one of this cute little puppy dog at a picnic with a kite all ready to go! I stamped the image, colored it and then added the Shade Tree from the Cutting Plate over it and voila - instant scene! Here is another look at the card:

I cut a cardstock to 5" by 3 x 3/4"and cloud sponged the cardstock with the Cloud Border die - making sure not to sponge too many clouds close to the bottom. To this I stamped the image to the bottom side by measuring where a the shade tree would go and then where the grass would go. After stamping the image and coloring it with copics. I die cut the shade tree twice, once with brown and another with green. The green side was adhered down first and then the brown cardstock (I trimmed out the brown leaves so that when it was laid downwards, it would cover the leaves). I added a strip of green grass using the Grass Border die and a sentiment and loved the way it turned out!!! Such a simple way to create a complex layered card!

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Made in the Shade 2 (Taylored Expressions)
Paper: Choice Snow White (TE), green and brown card stock from (Bazzill)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black 
Taylored Dies: Shade Tree Cutting Plate, Cloud Border and Grass Border Die
Accessories: Copic markers and foam dimensionals

For my second project, I used the stamp set: In Other Words - Travel from TE, to create this card. I think this is one of my absolutely favorite cards ever! I love these fun suitcases - and stamped and colored them in with copics and then added a little glaze to them for a slightly weathered look. 

Here is another closer peek at this card: the corners are rounded, both from the card and sentiment - and the different areas of the card are popped up for a little bit more fun and play :) I added a small amount of faux stitching around the edges for a bit of finishing:
