Taylored Expressions April Sneak Peeks: Sketched Blooms, Various Vases

Hi Everyone! 

Welcome to the April Release Sneak Peek Release from Taylored Expressions!! Woohoooo!!!  There are a ton of new stamps and dies that are going to tickle your crafty senses in this release!! Today, I am sneaking peeks with two projects: here is my first project using the Sketched Blooms stamp set - which is filled with an array of beautiful sketched blooms that you can mix and match in any way that you would like - I decided to create a little garden scene with them and leave off any sentiment so that it can be for any occasion:

I used the Build A Scene dies (Swirly Clouds and Sunshine) along with creating clouds with the Cloud Border die and then stamped the flowers ontop and colored them in with copics. I finished it off with some grass with the Grass Border die and the Fence Border die:

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Sketched Blooms stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and copics
Taylored Expressions dies:  Picket Fence Border, Grass Border die, Build A Scene (Swirly Clouds and Sunshine dies), Cloud Border die
Accessories: button, twine, felt, foam dimensionals, glue dots and Best Glue Ever 

For my second project, I used the absolutely darling vases from the Various Vases dies and added a bloom from the Silhouette Stems 4 die (love all these Silhouette Stems dies!). I love how fun it is to create a funky card by adding a little bit of the Spotted Circle cutting plate and then a few pearls, some buttons and bling and a bow using the new Mini Mix and Match Bows:

Here is a closer peek at the card - I love these darling flowers - I added a little pearl to the center and then scattered some pearls onto the card:

I love these awesome fun new Mix and Match Mini Bows - how cute - perfect little addition to a card - I die cut mine out and then added a bit of bling to the center:
