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!
