Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 2

Hello "Peeps"!  I have 2 more fabulous stamp sets to show you today - first up is Favorite Peeps, available for purchase tomorrow.  I am completely in love with this set!  It's like springtime therapy - let's leave winter behind, shall we?  I think you'll fall in love with this set too - it has so many adorable little Easter images that can easily be used for other occasions as well.  Everything you see on my card today (except the rhinestones -more on that in a bit) comes from the Easter Key Ingredients kit, which includes: textured cardstock, patterned paper by Basic Grey (Kioshi), 5 yards of to-die-for ribbon, buttons, and paper pretties mini flowers.  LOVE IT!  The rhinestones are from Kaisercraft and they are included in this month's Spring Sampler along with Cotton Candy Sparkly Fluff, 5 die cut bags, 6 Fancy Flowers, Candy Dots, Glitter, 5 yards of ribbon, Stardust Gelly Roll Pen, Tulip Rhinestone.  How fab is that?!  You can find more details about the Key Ingredients and Spring Sampler at Taylor's blog.

Here are the Copic Markers I used for the little egg and chick and the layout is from the fabulous Mercy - MTSC63.

Also debuting tomorrow morning is Easter Blessings, a wonderful set which is part of the Lasting Impressions collection of stamps.  I repeatedly stamped the vine image in Pale Plum over the front of the card and then used my small oval Nestabilities to cut out a hole in the front of the card.  The cross is on the inside of the card.  I added some Paper Pretties mini flowers around the sides of the die cut and along my sentiment flag - such an amazing addition to a super simple card.  Here's a view of the card standing up:

I love the images in this set - the crosses, the accent pieces, and the uplifting scripture and sayings. 

The rest of the Baker's Dozen have marvelous Easter creations to show you today as well, so "hop" on by to see:
Thanks for stopping by!
