Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks - Day 2 - Sparkle and Cheer!

Hi Everyone!

Today is Day 2 of sneak peeks over at Taylored Expressions (woo-hoo!) and the Baker's Dozen girls are going to show you MORE sneak peeks of stamp sets and Project Pantries and NEW Taylored Expressions Dies!!!! All o theYesterday we showed peeks from 4 new stamp sets! And today we are showing samples from 2 more new stamp sets one of which is called Sparkle and Cheer and the other which is called: Winter Wonderland.

Taylor is also going to be releasing 2 new Project Pantry Kits (if you are not familiar with the Project Pantry Kits - these are kits that Taylor puts together (designer paper, coordinating cardstock and ribbon and embellishments that make it a cinch to craft!) Today, I played with the Sparkle and Cheer stamp set with the Sparkle and Cheer Project Pantry -now that's a whole lot of "Cheer!"

I created this card using something else that Taylor will be releasing on Thursday: one of the many Taylored Expressions Dies called: WinterWonderland Snowflakes!!!! WooT! I loved punching out the snowflake three times on three different sheets of the DP and then covering it with Versamark and glittery EP. These snowflakes coordinate perfectly with the Winterwonderland stamp set - but I wanted to Sparkle them up a bit and use it with the awesome sentiment: "Sparkle and Cheer". 

I created a sparkly white cardstock base for the snowflakes to sit on by stamping the whole section with Versamark and then sprinkling glittery EP and embossing it ... Love that you can create a whole lot of sparklyness that way - here is a picture of all glitter - its hard to see and hard to take a photo of it:

I love all the fun DP in the Sparkle and Cheer Project Pantry kit and the ribbons are amazing! I used the silky sweet green ribbon to hold up my snowflakes and the red grosgrain ribbon for a bit of a bow and lastly I finished off the scallops with a bit of the blue rhinestones in the kit and then a little bit of liquid pearl around the card.

This stamp set is awesome for creating lots of christmas cards easily because the images are silhouettes - no coloring necessary - just stamp and go! So I thought I would create a couple of quick cards that I could do assembly line fashion for later this year. I die cut the  two snowflake and covered it with glitter and set it aside. I stamped the image (either the gorgeous reindeer or the beautiful sleigh) with Colorbox Warm Violet ink (I think these are my new favorite inks!) and then cut it out with my nesties. I thought it would be fun to create a little circle card so I adhered it to the purple cardstock in the kit that is cut with the scalloped Lacy Circle nesties from Spellbinders.

I did the same thing with the sleigh image and cut out a secondary circle to put the snowflake in. There are SO many wonderful sentiments to choose from in this set - I went with the beautiful sentiment: "Celebrate the Season" and cut it out so that it could be ontop of the snowflake. I added a wee bit of stickles for the snow and finished it with a little bow from the purple ribbon in the Sparkle and Cheer Project Pantry Kit.

Here is a close up of the details:

I really enjoyed how fun and quick it was to create these two cards - can't wait to do more with the other beautiful silhouetted images in this beautiful Sparkle and Cheer stamp set!!!
