January Release Day: Love Tree dies!

Good Morning Everyone,

Today is the release of all the new stamps, dies, project pantries and yummy goodies from Taylored Expressions! WooHOOO!

For today's project, I am SO excited to show you a card with no stamping! Just all dies! Today, Taylor will be releasing the cutest little dies called Love Tree - which is made up the sweetest little tree with hearts for leaves and the sentiment love! : I tried to go for the CAS style (the hardest style that I have ever encountered!) and keep everything monochromatic :) I love the way cream and white go together and so I made the base and cut the sentiment and tree from Choice Buttercream and created a mat with Choice Snow White. I die cut the tree and added a little bit of glitter to the heart leaves with a little bit of glitter on the sentiment - I love how this turned out - and I can't wait to create more!

To kind of pop up the tree and sentiment, I cut out the trees, and sentiment 4 times and stacked them up together so that they would stick up a little bit more - here is a close up of the stacking for the dies:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Choice Snow White and Choice ButterCream cardstock
Accessories: Love Tree dies, corner chomper, Heart punch (mini), MS Grass punch, EK success border punch, red grosgrain ribbon

I love this sweet die - and its perfect for Valentine's day, anniversaries, friendship or just because! AND I love that you can mix the dies with stamps and and cut out the sentiment with the coordinating papers in the card you are making - love it! There are so many stamps and dies that are being sneak peeked today to celebrate Release Day - please check them out all of these talented ladies here today:
Tomorrow - we are having some fun spotlights - would love it you would hop by!
Thanks so much for  stopping by today!
Ciao for now!
Sanakri :)

You're cracking me up! I love it that CAS is the hardest style you've ever encountered! As I was cutting off all of these heart leaves the other day I kept thinking "Sankari would be loving this right now". lol

Your card is gorgeous! I love the chunky glitter on the hearts and the white on cream is stunning!

Love your monochromatic card, Sankari! The extra layers for added depth is brilliant and I love the sparkle from the glitter!

Jen Shults said...

So this is amazing. And it's totally CAS Sankari style! LOVE the white and cream together... brilliant and I never would have thought of it but I have to say my favorite part is the way the glitter seriously looks like twinkle lights on the hearts... so so pretty! You are AMAZING!!
