Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Easter Blessings & Favorite Peeps

Hi everyone and I thank you soooo very much for coming back to see Day 2 of the sneak peeks for the big release this Friday, March 5 at 8 AM PST! Can you believe that Easter is already right around the corner?? I'm always on the lookout for cute little class giftables and teacher gifts for all of the upcoming holidays and may as well get started now, right?!

I am actually sneaking TWO sets for you today! The first one is called Easter Blessings, and this is a gorgeous religious Easter set with beautiful verses and elegant crosses and images. This set is actually versatile enough to be used beyond Easter! The second set is called Favorite Peeps and this set is sooo stinkin' adorable with the cutest little Easter images you've seen PLUS an Egg nestabilities friendly egg image!!! Hmm....does that make sense? lol

I have a lot to show you, so I'll just go ahead and start with the entire ensemble and then break it down one by one. :)

I'll first start with my little Egg treat "basket." This is the nesatbilitie friendly egg image that you can stamp multiple times and simply use your die to cut...YEAH!

I simply stamped 2 of the eggs and colored them in with my copics and then adhered to a small box. I filled with Easter grass and some robin eggs for a cute little treat!

I used my new favorite colored microbeads in the center of the flowers and my LOVE of Stardust Stickles on the edges. Oh! And the ribbon is from the Easter Key Ingredients....which I looooooove!! Here's how it looked unassembled.

My next project was a little matching card using the same set, Favorite Peeps.

How cute is that Easter basket filled with yummy eggs?! And those little flowers....oh yeah, in the Easter Key Ingredients!!

And finally, my last card using Easter Blessings.

Oh I just looove this card!! Remember that Letterpress technique I did a while back with the Tulip stencil here? Well, I couldn't resist getting the Diamond and Stars Impressabilities and pairing that with some new chalk inks Taylor picked up for the store...Pink Pastel Colorbox Chalk. I inked up my stencil with the chalk ink and ran it through my die cutting machine and the end result was EXACTLY what I had hoped for! This was actually the first thing I did when I made this card and after I completed that step, I just stared at it in adoration for a good hour before I could figure out how to add to the card without taking away from the background too, LOL! I think I did a decent job! :)

Thanks sooo much for hanging in there with me for so long! Make sure and check out what the rest of the team has come up for you...I've seen some of the sneaks and I am in AWE!!! You'll definitely want to hop around! Be sure to hop back here tomorrow for the last of the sneaks though!
