Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 2: Hello Baby and Good Goody Gumballs

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to the first release week of the new year from Taylored Expressions and to the second day of sneak peeks!!!! Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the TE Blog each Sneak Peek Day this week for details on how you can enter to win. 

Today, I am peeking two super cute stamp sets - the first is a petite stamp set with coordinating die called: Hello Baby. I love the cloud and the different mini dies that comes along with this stamp set (like the mini hearts, flowers, raindrops, etc.) so for my card today, I paired this die with other Taylored dies to create this little scene using cardstock and papers from the Matched Kit: Build A Scene

I also embossed the back of the scene with the new Cloudy Days Embossing Folder, added some felt for the rolling hills and then dotted it with liquid pearls for lots of texture :) I think this might be my favorite card that I have ever made (I think I say that after each card though :) but really, I truly loved making this card!!  I loved this chevron cloud stamp  and mixed it with the Rolling Clouds dies and the Build A Scene: Rolling Hills dies. Here is another angle:

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Happy New Home stamp set for the sentiment from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Teal Zeal ink
Paper Packs: Build A Scene Matched Kit from TE
Taylored Dies: Build A Scene: Rolling Clouds, Build A Scene: Sunshine

Accessories: Foam dimensionals, Corner chomper, White Gel Pen, Orange Twine

Okay you know how I said that the previous card was my favorite - well, after making this gumball machine card, I kinda felt like it was my favorite too :) I love the new Goody Goody Gumballs petite stamp set that comes with the coordinating die to cut out the center of the gumball as well as the whole machine itself!! SO cool! I colored in the machine and the gumballs and then cut it out with the die and popped the "machine" part of it up on some dimensionals to give the illusion of depth:

Here is another angle to see the depth of the glass by popping up the "machine" part:

I used the Matched Kit: Rainbow Brights for this card - it is so fun and festive and all of the DP just make you want to dance in the sunshine (okay - they make me want to dance in the sunshine :) Here is another angle of looking down on the card of what it looks like :)

Stamps: Goody Goody Gumballs stamps set from Taylored Expressions

Your cards are darling. I think I NEED the rolling hills die. It will come in handy for so many of my stamps that aren't "grounded."

Both your cards a awesome ... so colorful. Love the added addition of the little dots on your hills. Really makes the hills stand out. What a neat idea. I'm going to try it.

Both are wonderful! I love the scene with the various clouds, the rain, the blooming flowers and hearts - and all the wonderfully patterned rolling hills! And the gumball machine with the bright colors and the banners is so cute!
