Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek: Graysie and Think Happy Thoughts

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to the first release week of the new year from Taylored Expressions and to the third 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 sneak peeking one super cute little kitty cat named Graysie from the stamp set: Graysie that will be available tomorrow for release. All cat lovers will love the sentiments in this stamp set along with the sweet little ball of yarn stamped image. I colored in Graysie and the flower pot with Copics and then created mini- scene using papers from the Matched Kit: Build A Scene. I love the "floor" DP - its so multi-functional and the sweet dotted yellow DP looked like some fun wallpaper for little Graysie's home :) After adhereing Graysie to the scene, I die cut a circle and then popped up the scene so that the sentiment and main scene are on different layers:

Here is a close up peek of my card - Graysie was diecut using the coordinating die that comes with this stamp set:

Card Ingredients:
Stamp set: Graysie stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Teal Zeal from Memento Inks and Copics
Papers: Build A Scene Matched Kit from Taylored Expressions
Accessories: Party Banner border die from TE, circle nestability, liquid pearls, white gel pen, foam dimensionals, Best Glue Ever

For my second card, I used the stamp set Think Happy Thoughts that was previously offered as a free set with purchase during our birthday celebration in September and now will be available for purchase in tomorrow's release! It comes with one of my favorite die sentiments - the word "happy" and so I paired it with the sentiment: "happy anniversary" from the stamp set: Burgers & Fries - and filled the card with hearts from the Heart Stacklets dies from TE:

I embossed the Jelly Donut cardstock that is in the Matched Kit: Rainbow Brights papers from TE with the Diagonal Stripe embossing folder from TE. The hearts were cut out from the Rainbow Brights DP and then adhered to solid cardstock from the Rainbow Brights collection and arranged over the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment: "Happy Anniversary" and then die cut the word "Happy" and added it over the stamped sentiment - Here is a closer peek at the hearts and sentiment:

Card Ingredients:
Stamp set: Died word "Happy" from the stamp set: Think Some Happy Thoughts and stamped sentiment is from the Burgers & Fries stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Tangelo from Memento Inks and Copics
Papers: Matched Kit:Rainbow Brights from Taylored Expressions
Accessories: Heart Stacklets dies from TE, white gel pen, foam dimensionals, Best Glue Ever
