Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks - Day 1 !!!

Hi Everyone!

It's release week over at Taylored Expressions (wooooohooooo!) and today, the Baker's Dozen are welcoming the warmth and sunshine of spring with some major cute and adorable stamp sets and dies!!! I know that I am so ready to be done with winter and I absolutely loved creating my cards with these super happy sweet spring stamp sets and using the new Spring Project Pantry kits:  All of these super sweet sets today and this week will be released on Thursday, March 3 at 8am PST!

This first card is made using the Spring A La Carte stamp set - I love that you can purchase just one stamp and this stamp has sentiment and image combined. I colored in the sweet lettering of Spring and popped up the little birdie :) I paired this stamp sentiment with the frame from the New Beginnings stamp set and used the Frame it Up die and the  picket fence die from Taylored Expressions. I created a matching tag using this stamp frame and die with the Spring A La Carte stamp set and used it as a tag for a present of sweet chocolate :)

Here is a pic of the card with the sweet little butterfly that is cut from the Spring Project Pantry using the Butterflies (set of 3) dies from Taylored Expressions:

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Spring A La Carte stamp set and frame from New Beginnings stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Paper: Spring Project Pantry
Inks: copics, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Chalk ink - Rouge and Memento Ladybug Red
Accessories: All ribbons and brands and DP are from the SPring Poject Pantry, Butterflies (set of 3) dies from Taylored Expressions, Frame it Up die and the  picket fence die from Taylored Expressions, grass punch MS, and dimensionals

This second card uses the brand new to be released stamp set: It's a Banner Day 2 which has a coordinating die and some super super awesome sentiments that can be stamped into the banner. I used this stamp set with the sentiment: Happy Anniversary with the previously released stamp set: Favorite Peeps. I cut out a heart and matted it and stamped the image of the sweet birdie from the Favorite Peeps stamp set inside with the hearts from the Kid at Heart stamp set. I added the Banner Day 2 swirl at the bottom of the heart and finished it off with ribbons and papers from the February Key Ingredients kit.
