Taylored Expressions April Release!

Hello everyone!! I am so glad you are back visiting today for the big release over at Taylored Expressions!! All of the stamp sets, dies, accessories, and card kits are now available for purchase and you can see everything NEW being released right on the Fresh Out of the Oven Tab. But before you get to filling up your shopping cart, I hope you will stick around and check out what last bit of projects we have to share with you to whet your appetite further. :)

I wanted to revisit the Treasure Life set, but this time with the Apothecary Shelf a la Carte stamp that I didn't play with on Tuesday!

I always try to make a clean and simple card for a release project, and here is one of my attempts. :) I really think that this just makes the stamps shine. I paper pieced the shelf using the Emma's Shoppe paper pad...I was just tickled to find a patterned paper with a wood grain!! I also stamped a couple of the apothecary jars and then used the coordinating Apothecary Jar dies and filled them with a couple of stamps included in the Treasure Life set. I then colored them with Copics and then covered with a nice glassy glaze. Simply pretty I think!

And finally, I made a whoopsie and didn't share this one with you on Tuesday....a card using the Dream Big set (the perfect graduation set in my opinion!)

Yep....another attempt here at Clean and Simple. Can you believe though, I actually used 4 stamps from the set and there's not even a whole lot going on, right?! I wanted to try and make something suitable as a "man card" and I think that this will fit the bill. :) The patterned paper came from the MME Stella Rose Gertie paper pack.

There are a couple of bundles available with all the coordinating stamps and dies to get your shopping cart started with the ease of a simple click. :)

Apothecary Bundle (includes Treasure Life, Apothecary Shelf a la Carte, Apothecary Jar die set)
It's a Banner Day 3 Bundle (includes It's a Banner Day 3, It's a Banner Day 3 die)

We have our special Guest Designer, Cindy Lawrence, sharing some release peeks with us today so I hope you are able to hop around and see all of the gorgeous creations!

Happy shopping and thanks so very much for your visit!!!

OMG OMG. I just about fell on the floor looking at that first card with the jars and that bit o' lace and all that shabby awesomeness. Then I saw your other card! Sheesh. I'm inspired. Have a great day!
