2016 Taylored Expressions January Sneak Peeks: Day 1 - Forest Friends and Mane Even

HI Everyone!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I am hope that you all had a wonderful time ringing in the new year!!

January release from Taylored Expressions is all about Petite Palooza -- full of Petite stamp and die combos that are just full of cuteness!! I am so excited for today's sneak peek! My first card is of the super cute stamp set: Forest Friends Combo Small - I love the serenity of this sweet deer - I paired it up with the Birch Tree cutting plate and created a scene and absolutely loved how it turned out! Isn't it so much fun when the vision you have in your eyes comes true :) I used the Build A Scene - Rolling Hills and sponged a sky with different colors to create a sky. 

Here is a closer peek at the sweet deer - I added a little blush to the deers face for a little sweet touch :). I also sponged the birch trees from the cutting plate with some Rich Cocoa inks and added a little banner from the Party Banner Border die. Such a fun card to make!!

For my second card, I used the Mane Event combo small stamp set along with the new Splatter Embossing Folder which I sponged with different colors - such a fun effect! I created a little scene for this cutie lion (look at him holding flowers - aww!) and then layered it together like so:
