Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek | Day 2

I'm back today with another sweet little peek at new Taylored Expressions stamps, available for purchase on Thursday at 8 AM Pacific and the Baker's Dozen have lots and lots of goodies for you again this morning.  TE is introducing a new set in the Apple Doodle Ink line called Hello Spring, which is absolutely darling!  Hello Spring is a full sized set of 20 deeply etched cling mount rubber stamps, which are die cut and ready to stamp.

Didn't I tell you this set was adorable?!!  I stamped the little wagon image in Memento Tuxedo Black 3 times and paper pieced the wagon cars and then popped up the sheep's head so he looks like he's peeking out of the bucket.  Love him!  I also used some Sugar Sparkly Fluff on the sheep.  The image is colored in with Copics and the papers are from a delightful new paper pack from My Mind's Eye called Hazel - part of the Stella & Rose collection.  A few Island Lagoon rhinestones and green satin ribbon complete it.  OH!  I almost forgot, I just got the Martha Stewart Grass Border Punch and doubled up with it for this card.  So perfect for all those spring and Easter cards.
Next up is a new mini set called Easter Joy, part of the Lasting Impressions line which also coordinates with Hello Spring.  This is a set of 10 images and sentiments that are beautiful for your Easter celebration. 

I've actually combined 2 images for this card - I stamped the hill with crosses first with Memento Rich Cocoa and then stamped it again on a sticky note and cut it out.  The sticky note cut-out is a perfect mask to go over the previously stamped image and then I stamped the sun in Memento Cantaloupe over the top of it.  The mask peels off, and there you go!  The combined image is colored with Copics and I added the sentiment below.  The papers and embellishments are all from the Spring Project Pantry Kit.  Since I was playing with the Diamond Glaze for my card yesterday, I added a little dollup on the heart. 

Please stop by and see what the rest of the fantastic Baker's Dozen have whipped up for you today.  Lots and lots of eye candy for you today!
Thanks for stopping by!
