Taylored Expressions February Release Day: Hello Spring!

Hi Everyone,
YAY! Its Release Day from Taylored Expressions - there are a ton new dies and stamps ready for crafting! Today, I am showing a new coordinating die (the Spring is in the Air die) that perfecting cuts out images from the previously released stamp set called: "Hello Spring". SO as I am typing this - the ground around me is covered in 400 feet of snow... okay maybe like 2 feet - but that is a TON of snow! I can't even tell you HOW nice it was to make a spring card in the dead of winter! Its like a breath of warmth - just looking at this card makes me hopeful and happy that it will be spring one day again soon!! :) 

I created my card by coloring in this super cute train image of the sheep, chicken, eggs and flowers and then die cut it with the coordinating Spring is in the Air die:
Here is a close up image of the die cut - I LOVE to cut images out - but this is awesome - it also cuts in between the train carts and all around the whole image in just one fell swoop cut :) I then sponged some clouds and added a sun from the Build A Scene - Sunshine die and tied a yellow ribbon so that the end of the ribbon were like sun rays :)

 Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Hello Spring from Taylored Expressions by Sankari Wegman
Paper: Choice White card stock, assorted colored card stock
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Colored Pencils
Accessories: sheer green ribbon, satin golden ribbon, Spring is in the Air die, dimensionals, Build A Scene - Sunshine dies, Cloud Border die, Floral Eyelet Border, Grass punch from MS 

I can't wait to see everyone's fantastic release day projects - please hop aroundwith me and check them out:
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
