Taylored Expressions: Easter Release!

Taylored Expressions has a New Release today celebrating Easter! Let’s think Spring and bunnies and sunshine!

First up, there is a new Full Circle and this time it is for Easter! Full Circle-Easter! And oh, is it cute! Anyone else agree? I white heat embossed Full Circle-Easter for this card.

After heat embossing it, I used the Stitched Circle Stacklets to cut out the circle. I love these Full Circles as backgrounds, off set and without die cutting, but for this card, I wanted to feature it with the Little Bits-Oh Hoppy Day bunnies. They are one of my TE Easter Faves with their little bunny cotton tails.

The background panel I die cut using the Stitched with Love cutting plate. That little background is so sweet, I have trouble not using it for everything. It adds a little love so subtly. The sentiment, Somebunny Loves You is from the Full Circle -Easter Set. I added a little stitching and some twine and done. 🙂

Up next, we have the new Eggstra Sweet and is it ever! I stamped three chicks because we have three in our family 😉 and colored them with Copic Markers on Potato Chip cardstock. Using a Mini Slim Panel in Sugar Cube, I used the new die cut plate, Stitched with Love to create a little interest in the background. I also added a grassy green base using the Set the Scene – Grass Stencil Strips. Perfect!

This sentiment is from the new Joyful Joyful sentiment set that I stamped ombre with some green inks and die cut that out. The sentiment strip is from Mini Strips-Easter that I die cut out with the Mini Strips Asymmetrical die. The panels are the Stitched Mini Slim Stacklets and the Petite Scallop Mini Slim Stacklets cut out of Cupcake. Always the Cupcake 🙂

Lastly for today, I have the new At the Cross die. This die comes with the solid backer plate, which I think you could use on it’s own and also with this filigree die, that layers perfectly on top, or again, can be used on its own too.

I used, wait for it… Lavender Glaze cardstock (wha?) and blended on some coordinating ink to give the filigree die cut a little extra pop. For the background, I used the new Mini Slim Rotating Ray stencil along with the Set the Scene – Clouds Stencil Strips and the Mini Slim Masking Stencils – Mini Slim Rectangle. The sentiment is Mini Strips In Reverse – Easter foiled with Silver foil. Those sentiments foil to perfection and the best part is, it is so fast and easy to create a bunch if you have several cards to make. I want alllll the Foiled sentiments all the time! 🙂

I finished this card off with some silver thread from my stash, a bit of stitching on the Mini Slim panel and the Bits & Pieces – Iridescent Rhinestones. The last panel is again cut with the Petite Scallop Mini Slim Stacklets.

The Easter release is always so fun and gives us hope of warmer days ahead, doesn’t it? I actually like Winter, but as we near the end of February, I am definitely ready for the green grass again!

Taylored Expressions: Easter Release

Today is a Hoppy  Day over at Taylored Expressions! 🙂 Spring is coming and there is a new release from Taylored Expressions today! Let’s Hop to it, shall we?

First up, I thought I’d share this card using the new  Bunch of Bunnies and Oh Hoppy Day! Eeeeep these cute little  Bunch of Bunnies that are shaped wood bunnies are just the cutest and I want to put them on all the things for Easter!

For this card, I stenciled on the bunny Oh Hoppy Day background quite simply using Sugar Cube ink. I painted the Bunch of Bunnies just using white acrylic paint. After that, I decided which sentiment I wanted to use from the Mini Strips: Easter and paired it with a bunny of many colors (using Copic Markers for the stripes) to complete the sentiment. ❤

I would send this card out any time of year, not just at Easter. 🙂 The little Pom Pom tails though–too cute!

Next up,  I have the new Jesus Script die with the Jesus Script backer die. I paired this with the sweet Pierced Lattice Cutting Plate (which I feel I am going to be using  A LOT!) and a few little flowers from the Spring Wreath dies.

I even used Lavender Glaze for this card because it seemed the right thing to do with this sentiment.

The sentiment strip is from Simple Strips: Easter Blessings. This new Simple Strips is full of lovely sentiments to use this Easter.

Next up, I have the fun new Playful Plaid Background. I decided I would stamp and emboss it in white and the use the Stencil Strips-Clouds to create another layer to the background. I don’t really know how these ideas come to be as I am making things, but voila in the end, here they are! 🙂 ha!

This new background is indeed playful and I can see using for a variety of occasions. Baby cards, winter cozy cards, well, pretty much anything!

I decided I wanted to use the Peep sentiment from the  Mini Strips-Easter. And once you choose a Peep sentiment, what is one to do? Well, Peeps of course–aka The Little Bits Marshmallow Bunnies dies!  I love the iconic Peeps at Easter. And while I am not a super fan of eating them, per say, I do enjoy having one little yellow bunny Peep and biting off their ears.  shhhhh.  Oh for Peeps sake! 🙂

This would be a card which would be able to be produced in multiples fairly easily. 😉

Next up, I have the card that might possibly be my favorite of this release. This card uses the new Springtime Smiles set. And naturally, it includes the oh so cutest little stamps. I had to use this little bunny tooshie because it’s too adorable!

For the card itself, I die cut and layered up lots of the TE Mini Slim goodies. I used the Petite Scallop Mini Slim Stacklets and the  Stitched Mini Slim Stacklets to create these frames/layers.

I used the carrot to create a fun background, coloring those and the bunny in with Copic Markers.  One of my favorite parts of this card though is the inside where I used the Set the Scene-Grass stencil to create a little place to stamp this sweet sentiment. (Apparently I really like this sentiment because I didn’t even realize I used it twice til I had taken all my card photos–ha! 🙂

I love nobunny butt you! Can’t even! 🙂 To create this green grass, I used both Granny Smith and Cilantro.

I originally thought I’d just stamp the carrots in Candy Corn and Sweet Potato Pie to create a patterned background and then I ended up coloring in all the carrots with Copic Markers. Definitely a different look that I usually create just stamping in Oreo, but a fun change! Oh I also masked a frame around the stamping/coloring so I wouldn’t be outside the range of the Stitched Mini Slim Stacklets frame.

All these products are available now over at Taylored Expressions.
