Hi stamping friends! Did everyone have a nice Easter? Was the Easter Bunny good to you? It came early this year, and now, here it is the first part of April! You know what that means!? Fun, fresh new items from Taylored Expressions! Yeah! I know I say this every month...but this month is AWESOME! I was so happy to play with all the new goodies and I'm very excited to share some of them with you today, and the rest of the week! You can start buying everything on Thursday!
Today I'm sharing two cards, made using two brand new stamp sets! The first one is a vintage-y birthday card using some creative new dies, and the second one is a whimsical bright and cheery card. First up, My vintage birthday card - made with the "A Glimpse Inside" stamp set. This set matches the window die from last month and a BRAND NEW window die released this month.
Remember last month's window realease that had outdoor scenes? Well, this month we have indoor scenes! I used the Birthday party scene and the gorgeous matching sentiment. I used vanilla cardstock instead of bright white to make it feel more old fashioned. Do you LOVE that polka dot paper!!! OH MY.
Here are my Copic colors for today - used to match that pretty paper. A clean and simple palette.
The Window die is SO pretty! And, if you look closely you can see my sheer vellum curtains! There is a new accessories die that comes with a set of curtains, a window box and shutters. Fab!
The pennant border die is an old TE favorite. Here I cut it out in two different papers and layered it for my party banner. I curled the edges up with my fingers for some added dimension.
I had to resist completely slathering this with glitter! So I just added some accents on the balloon, the candles and one party hat!
My second card for today is fanciful and whimsical! I was going for a Dr. Seuss effect with my fun paper piecing of this stamp set. The stamp set is called "Made in the Shade" and featured different landscape images. You're gonna love this one for sure! I used the new Doodlebug "Flower Box" 6x6 paper pad and went crazy cutting all those tiny pieces. At the end I decided to add some bold flowers to my card. The "dream" die cut is from a beautiful new die set called Windy Tree....
Here are my little teeny tiny paper pieces for my houses....aka proof that I am CRAZY! LOL.
Here are your links to start the week off right!
