Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks: Light of the World and Fringe Border

Hello everyone and welcome to day three of the Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks!! Have you picked a favorite yet?? You may change your mind after seeing  all the fabulous projects the DT has made for you today!!! Remember...the February Release is tomorrow, Thursday, February 4th at 7:00 AM PST (9:00 CST)!! Now, get a cuppa, sit back, and enjoy the show...but first....

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 is a CAS design featuring the beautiful Light of theWorld stamp set. The stained glass window image was stamped on the watercolored background and a few areas were watercolored with Clean Color Real Brush pens. 

The sentiment from the same set was stamped repeatedly on Vellum paper and adhered over the top of the image. In order to adhere the vellum without seeing the glue, the glue was applied with a glue pen under the stamped sentiment.

My second card took a little more time...the image was also stamped on watercolor paper and colored with Clean Color Real Brush watercolor pens.  

The image was cutout with the Label Stacklets 5 and layered on Plum Punch and Lollipop cardstock. The cardbase was cutout of Sugar Cube cardstock with the largest Label Stacklets was placed off the folded side to create the card.  

The only embellishment is twine tied on the fold. 

The inside features sentiments from the same set.

For my next project, I made a set of cards featuring the Fringe Border die, various Little Bits dies, and sentiments from Lucky Charms Stamp & Die Combo.

The Pumpkin and Candy Corn cardstock was used for the fringe....The Pumpkin fringe was cut in half and adhered to the back of the Candy Corn piece and then sewing was done along the center. Little Bits - Birds were cut out of Cookie Monster cardstock and the Little Bits - Birdhouse was cut out of Toffee, Pumpkin, and Cookie Monster cardstock. The cardbase is Sugar Cube cardstock. 

The fringe was cut out of Lavender Glaze  and Jelly Donut cardstock, The Little Bits - Chocolate Bunny was cut out of Strawberry Milkshake cardstock and the bow was cutout of Lollipop. The previously released  Little Bits - Easter Confetti egg die was used for the large eggs and the egg die from the Door to Door Spring Decor die set was used for the smaller eggs. A candy dot was added to the bunnies bow. 

The fringe was cut out of Peapod and Granny Smith was cut, taped, and sewn like the other two. The shamrocks were cut with the previously released Little Bits - Shamrock dies  to create a fun St. Patricks Day card!
