Taylored Expressions March Sneak Peeks: Beauty Lies Within and Bloomin' Stacklets 2

Hi Everyone!!

Welcome to last day of sneak peeks before tomorrow's Release Day from Taylored Expressions

Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the TE Blog (insert link: each Sneak Peek Day this week for details on how you can enter to win.

Its been such a fun week of amazing week of showing the different dies and stamps and today I have two projects created with the Beauty Within Stamp set and the Welcome Home stamp set using the Bloomin' Stacklets 2 dies.

The first one is using the Beauty Lies Within set that are a set of dies that matches the Embrace Beauty stamp set that was previously released.So many possibilities on how you can use these dies - I die cut the little birdie out of brown cardstock and set it against a blue DP sky border:

After die cutting the bird - I added some stickles to the little bird to make it pop and then added some white sharpie stitching to the sides of the card as well as along the circle nestabilities:
I used the P & P circle dies to die cut the sentiment: "Hello" and then added some stickles (cinnamon) over the hello lettering:

Card Ingredients:
Taylored Dies: Floral Eyelet Border, P & P Circle Words, Beauty Lies Within die from TE
Papers: Jilibean Soup DP, Kraft, Blue cardstock
Accessories: Stickles (Cinnamon), blue satin ribbon, hat pin, corner chomper, white sharpie pen, circle nesties 

For my second project, I used the new Bloomin' Stacklets 2 dies to create a little flowered flower card with a sentiment from the Welcome Home stamp set. I thought it would be perfect for a returning son or daughter or anyone really!
I added some leafs from the Leafy Branch Die from Taylored Expressions and then circled around the flowers with some white sharpie pen. Each layer was popped up with some foam dimensionals and all papers are from the February Key Ingredients Kit:
