Taylored Expressions December Sneak Peeks: Petite - a - Palooza Day 2

Hello everyone!!! Welcome to day two of the Taylored Expressions Petite - a - Palooza Sneak Peeks!!!  14 new petite sets will be released Thursday morning at 7:00 AM PST. All the new sets have matching dies, too, which makes designing a card or project super easy and fun!!!!

Weren't yesterday's projects fabulous!!! Today the Baker's Dozen has more awesome cards and projects to show you so sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!!!!

My first card features the adorable balloon stamps from the Bugs and Balloons set!! The balloons and baskets were stamped with not quite navy and coastal cabana...they were both cut out with the Bugs and Balloons coordinating dies and popped up on the background that was sponged with my homemade cloud template and soft sky ink. 

The sentiment was stamped with not quite navy, the background papers are from Simple Stories I (heart) Summer 6x6 paper pad and the sewing, twine, and button finish it off. 

My second card features the chandelier stamp from the Shine Bright's just perfect for an elegant this set!!!  It was stamped on two pieces of white cardstock that were lined up with the upper layer in the center of the bottom layer with Versafine Onyx Black. The top piece was adhered to the black mat and popped up on the background piece with foam tape. A Project  Pantry Journaling pen was used to draw on the squiggly *hanger* and  a little sponging of barely banana was done to create a glow. A Copic marker was used to add some depth to the image and the ribbon  finishes it off. 

How about a little inspiration from the Baker's Dozen Design team...I can't wait for you to see the awesome projects they created for you today!!!!
