Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 2

Hey everyone and welcome back to Day 2 of sneaks for the big Taylored Expressions release on Thursday morning! I'm so happy you have come back today. I have a couple of really fun projects to share with a 3d item that makes a GREAT teacher/friend/co-worker, etc gift! Are you excited to see??!

So the first project on the menu features the new set, Easter Joy. This is another mini stamp set but really packs a big punch with all of the adorable Christian images and sentiments. The set actually has 10 images including 2 Bible verses. I used the Spring Project Pantry on this card because, well, I just LOVE all the papers and embellishments in the kit. I think you're going to find even more projects with the kit later. :) Anyway, the tone on tone floral image on the bottom panel is actually a stamp from the set that is long enough to fit the card lengthwise! I curved the stamp just for fun and stamped repeatedly. And I've got to say, I would be completely remiss if I didn't give credit to the inspiration for this card, which comes from Procrastination Station...soo cute! I was thrilled that the sun from this set fit perfectly in one of the Circle Nestabilities so I could make my focal point completely framed with image and sentiment. :) I used even more Nesties behind the "sun" with the Lacey Circles and Dahlia die. I also used TE's very own Cloud Duo die as side accents and added some Taylor's Tiny Twinkles for sparkle.

And on we go to 3D....

Oy, I'm not sure I can part with this one! First off, this project features images from the new set, Hello Spring. This set actually coordinates with Easter Joy and is part of the Apple Doodle line of stamps. You'll also notice that the greeting on the front coordinates with the new It's a Banner Day 2 stamp set and die!!!! I was pretty excited when I discovered's the little things that get me. :) Anyway, yep, more Spring Project Pantry here coupled with tons of little embellishments right out of the TE store. Goodies like soft pink rhinestones, Spring Paper Pretties, White Metal Flowers, Pink Ruffle Blossoms, Pink Mini Rose trim, and finally the Little Yellow Heart Whimsie. Love, love, LOVE all the little delicate doo-dads added on top.

And opening to all the yumminess inside. :) Store bought Eastery jelly beans (that taste positively know I just had to do a taste-test) as a sweet "tweet for you." Oh my goodness this just oozes of sweetness!! And I positively love the little chick peeking inside for his sweet little message. Don't forget, this altoid-styled tin is available right in the TE store HERE and this has a coordinating die so that you can quickly cut your paper and glue it right on top or right on the insides as I've shown above. BEST DIE EVER!! Check it out HERE!! And you can also stamp a cute border and make more giftables with the Enjoy set that also coordinates with these tins!

Ok, I hope you enjoyed today's projects! I love making some 3D items and I actually have MORE to show you tomorrow!!! Please come back!! LOL :)
