Taylored Expressions: Sneak Peeks - Day Two

Good Saturday Morning,

Welcome to the second day of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions!!! YAY!!Yesterday we got to show you some of the images from the stamp set Fresh Flowers, today we are showing sneak peeks from this awesome set called Downtown Diva - and you are going to LOVE it!!!

These images are sooo cute!!! I have so many ideas spinning in my head from this set that I am dizzy! LOL! Both of these stamp sets are just full of images and sentiments that are perfect for Mother's Day, Thank you Cards, Let's Shop (Girlfriends cards), Happy Birthday Cards, and Just Because cards! Can't wait to ink them all up - and the images that I HAD to ink up as soon as I saw it was the one with these sweet buildings! I inked these up on Stazon Black and then pulled out my watercolors and had so much fun painting. I also added a little dimension to the awning by popping it out on dimnsionals.

I used Taylor's Sketch # 59 for this card and the sentiment reads: People who say money can't buy happiness, don't know where to shop!!! I was sooo psyched when I saw that because my GF and I just had a shopping spree a few weeks ago and had so much fun hitting the shoe stores, craft stores and don't forget the dessert stores!! This card is made for her and I can't wait to give it to her!

For both the outside and inside, I used the Mother's Day Key Ingredient's kit that comes with heavy cardstock in beautiful colors with coordinating DP, flowers, ribbon and rhinestones. I decorated the inside of the card to read: "Shop till you drop!" LOVE IT!!! I have so many GF and SIL's who love to shop (I like to browse) and I can't wait to make a few of these cards for them! Aren't those cupcakes so cute holding purses!!

I also made a little coordinating Favor Box for my buddy that I am going to fill with her favorite chocolate!! I used another stamp in this awesome stamp set that reads: Sweet Shoppe. I used the the matching coordinating papers and ribbon from the Key ingredients kit. You have to check out all the amazing Favor Boxes that Taylor has in her store - they are just amazingly wonderful to have on hand because you can fix up a coordinating gift set in just a few minutes!

Card Details for the Card and the Gift set:
Paper: Mother's Day Key Ingredients Kit and Choice Buutercream cardstock, Favor Boxes
Ink: Chocolate Chip SU!, Stazon On Black, Water Colors
Accessories: All accessories from the ribbon to the rhinestones are in the Mother's Day KeyIngredients Kit - other supplies include: corner rounder, SU! Circle punch, dimensionals silver marker and liquid pearls

I totally have LOVED using the images from both of these stamp sets (you can see the sneak peek from yesterday here) and can't wait for the big release day!!!
