Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks - Day 2 - Chillax

Good Morning Everyone!

 Welcome to the second day of  peeks of Taylor’s latest set called Chillax - which will be available tomorrow!! I just love the name of the set and love the coo sentiments and drink images that come with them. I couldn't wait to use the sentiment: if life gives you lemons make lemonade and I couldn’t wait to use the phrase: If life gives you limes, make margaritas!” – so I put those two sentiments together on this card and added some crystal effects for more of a glass look:

I used some frosted stickles to create a "margarita salt" look to the rim of the glass and also used a mix of papers from my stash - the cardstock and ribbon are from Taylored Expressions.

I couldn't resist and made another card using one of my fave images from this set – a cute little blender – so sweet! There are SO many possibilities with this blender but for this card I made a You're So Smooth card with a blender making some fun orange smoothies. 

I paper pieced the little smoothie cups and the blender with a mix of papers and added some bling and crystal effects. I also made an orange smoothie and used a little shot glass with a stem and created a little umbrella for it from papers in the card (1 3/4 punch with a bamboo skewer).

And there's one more little thing that I made using this set - and here is a sneak peek of it:

The rest of it can be found on the Stamp a Sweet Impression blog - and so please hop on over there and check it out - and let me know if you liked it :)
