Taylored Expressions April Release Peeks - Day 2 - Dream Big! You're off to Great Places!

Hi Everyone!!

Welcome to the second day of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions! There are some awesome peeks on the blog hop today and you can see the complete blog roll on Taylor's blog

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. 

My first peek for today's release is one my favorite ones that I made for this week! Its hard to see the variance in the clouds between the cream and the white - but it feels so summery and light with all the clouds! I love these awesome Sky High Hot Air Balloon dies - so many possibilities because you can layer them in different ways!!

Here is a closer peek at the card and the way the dies can be layered! I used part of the super awesome Dr. Seuss quote that is in the Sky High Sentiments stamp set:

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Sky High Sentiments (TE)
Inks: Memento Ladybug Red
Papers: Double the Joy paperpack (TE), Cherry Pop Red (TE, Cookie Monster (TE), Sugar Cube (TE) and Buttercream (TE)
Accessories: corner chomper, Sky High - Hot Air Balloons dies, Rolling Clouds dies (TE), Double the Joy sequins and heart punch, Best Glue Ever and Foam dimensional tape

I was so excited to make this second card using the brand new Shining Star Cutting Plate which cuts out these super cute stars in different sizes that come out radially from the center and works PERFECTLY with the Ray of Sunshine Cutting Plate. This is such a perfect way of creating an alternating color scheme with the stars.


I love how this card turned out - so simple and clean!! And to the center of the card, I added the sentiment "Dream Big" from the Sky High Sentiments stamp set:

Here is a closer peek at the card - I added some stickles to some of the stars - just for fun and then finished it with a line of liquid pearls:
Card Ingredients:
Stamps:Sky High Sentiments (TE)

Papers: Cherry Pop (TE), Sugar Cube (TE), Build a Scene paperpack (TE)

I love it when products coordinate and work with previously released products - so awesome - and I loved making these cards!

Such fun patterns and colors on your balloons! And I love the bright colors of the "dream big" card - you've shown us such a great way to use those two cutting plates together!
