Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 2

It's day 2 of the Taylored Expressions release sneak peeks and today's card features Sweet Spring. This set has so many darling images and fun sentiments I cannot wait to ink up! I absolutely love this little bunny cupcake - isn't she sweet? I had fun coloring her in using watercolor crayons and a blender pen - it's like sweet therapy when I get to color. It's quiet and I get to make something magic appear from black and white. I used Bright White Choice cardstock for my little cuppie image and I have to tell you, it is fantastic to work with! It's incredibly smooth, so bold images stamp very nicely AND it's thick (100 lb), so I can use it as a card base as well. Bright White Choice cardstock will be available tomorrow at Taylored Expressions.

Taylored Expressions is coming out with a new Easter Key Ingredients kit for you all to play with. Aren't these papers just amazing? I love the bright spring colors and the coordinating designer paper. The kit also includes coordinating ribbon, flowers, and brads, so making projects with it is a snap.

Now hop on over to Taylor's blog for more details and the other members of the Baker's Dozen and see what goodies they've cooked up for you today ~
