Taylored Expressions January Sneak Peeks: Simply Succulents and Choose Hope

Hello everyone and welcome to day two of the Taylored Expressions January Sneak Peeks!!! I can't wait to show you what I made for today but first I want to remind you that the January Release is scheduled for Thursday, January 7th, at 7:00AM PST (9:00 CST) and....

Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the  TE Blog each Sneak peek Day this week for details on how you can enter to win. 

My first card features the Simply Succulents Stamp & Die Combo....the image was colored with Copics, cutout with the coordinating die, and popped up with foam tape. The background banner was cutout of woodgrained patterned paper with the previously released Stitched Banner Stacklets Die and the circle was cutout of patterned paper with the previously released Stitched Circle Stacklets die.  

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and it was stamped on the background patterned paper that was cutout with the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets die. The scallop was cut out of lavender cardstock with the previously released Small Scallop Border and embossed with the Flower Power Embossing Folder...the twine is the finishing touch. 

My second card features the Choose Hope Stamp & Die Combo....the background Earl Grey cardstock was cut with the previously released Stitched Square Stacklets die and embossed with the Splatter Embossing Folder.  The circles were cut with the previously released Stitched Circle Stacklets out of Cupcake and Sugar Cube cardstock. The ribbon was cut out of the Sugar Cube cardstock using one of the coordinating dies and also from a piece of Cupcake cardstock....the Cupcake diecuts were inserted into the Sugar Cube openings and taped to secure on the back. The hearts were adhered to the Sugar Cube cardstock.

To finish it off, the sentiment from the same set was stamped with Memento Gray Flannel ink.
