Taylored Expressions April Sneak Peeks: Sketched Blooms and Silhouette Stems 6

Hello everyone and welcome to day one of the Taylored Expressions April Sneak Peeks!!!  I just love the first week of the month because I get to show you all the new goodies. The release will be Thursday, April 3, at 7:00 AM PST (9:00 CST).....Woot!!! Ok, grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and check out the new TE Stamps and dies!!!

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

My first card features the Sketched Blooms stamp set and the Various Bases dies. The flowers from the Sketched Blooms set were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream card stock and colored with Copics. 

The vases were embossed with various embossing folders and then were adhered with foam tape. The sentiment is from the same set and the pearls and ribbon finish it off. 

My second card features the Silhouette Stems 6 was used to cutout the two flowers from certainly celery card stock and Homespun patterned paper.  

The background was cut out of Choice Buttercream card stock with the Label Stacklets 8 dies and layered with Homespum patterned paper and Choice Black. Sewing was done around the edges and the hemp cording and the twine finish if off. 

Now, how about a little inspiration from the Baker's Dozen Design Team...I can't wait for you to see all the gorgeous projects they have created for you!!!
