Taylored Expressions May Sneak Peek: Day 2 - Wedded Bliss



 Hello everyone and welcome to Day 2 of  Taylored Expressions May Sneak Peeks!! Today the theme is Wedded Bliss and I have a couple of wedding cards to show you!!

The first card was made with the Mr. & Mrs. Cutting Plate. I used the plate on four pieces of card stock; black, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, and Certainly Celery. Using the black die cut as the base, I cut the leaves out of the Certainly Celery die cut and adhered them to the black base die cut. Then I cut the small flowers out of the Pool Party die cut and the large flowers out of the Bermuda Bay die cut and adhered them all to the black base. Pearls and gems were added to all the flower centers and then it was adhered to the white card base. 

My second card features stamps from the Happily After set. The flower was stamped on a piece of designer paper several times. I cut three layers of the flower for the middle flower and two layers for the two side flowers. Foam dots were used to adhere the layers. The leaves were stamped on Always Artichoke with Always Artichoke ink, cut out and adhered with glue dots. The sentiment is from the same set and the lace heart was in my stash. The paper is from Webster's Pages and the pearls, sewing and distressing finish it off.

I can't wait to see all the wedding inspiration from the Baker's Dozen Design team...how about you??


Thanks for stopping by...have a great day and remember,  tomorrow is the May release for all the awesome Taylored Expressions stamps and cutting plates and The Facebook Preview Party is tonight at 6pm PST.!!!!
