Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks Day 1

It's the first day of sneak peeks at Taylored Expressions and we have a ton of fun stuff to share over the next few days. All the new products will be available in the TE Store starting Thursday, March 3rd at 8am PST.

The Baker's Dozen will have samples using the Spring A La Carte stamp, the Spring Wreath Petite stamp set, and It's a Banner Day 2 mini stamp set and coordinating Banner Day 2 die.

Let's get right to the fun, shall we? I'll start off with this darling card I whipped up with the new Spring A La Carte image, the newest in the Apple Doodle Ink line. Who knew there could be so much fun packed into one little stamp?!? Like all TE sets, the A La Carte stamps are the same deeply etched rubber on EZ mount so they arrive ready to use...no trimming...yay!

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto choice snow white and coloured it with copics. I stamped it twice though, so I could pop the chick, flower, and ladybug for dimension. All the supplies on this card are from the Spring Project Pantry.

I used the frame it up 1 die to cut out the image...love those curvy lines...and the circles impression plate gave just the right texture to the background layer. A little sewing and a brad in each corner and I called it done!

Next up I used the new It's a Banner Day 2 mini stamp set and coordinating Banner Day 2 die. I paired these new products with Favourite Peeps from last spring.

This set is the second in the banner day series, a concept by Iwona Palamountain, and she's joining us today to show off "her" new set! The set includes three banners and six sentiments and is part of the TE line. These banner sets are sure to become staples in your stamping repertoire, with sentiments for just about any occasion or event.

I used a couple more dies on my card...the picket fence die and the sun from garden party blooms 2. The patterned paper is the new My Mind's Eye Stella Rose Gertie...love!!! I added a little pleated ribbon from my stash and a few clear rhinestones that I coloured with yellow and green copic markers. The layout is SC319.

Would you like to win the entire March release? Well then head over to the Taylored Expressions Facebook page...there's a fun contest going on and once we reach 1500 fans, one fan will be drawn at random to win the entire March release!!!

Now it's time to hop around to see lots more sweet sneak peeks!!!

See you back here tomorrow for more sneak peek goodness!
