Taylored Expressions March Sneak Peeks : Beauty Lies Within and In Flight Cutting Plate

Hello everyone and welcome to day three of the Taylored Expressions March Sneak Peeks!!!! I can't wait for you to see what I made today....the Beauty Lies Within dies are the most fabulous dies and they are just perfect for any craft project!!!! The set comes with three dies: three mini scenes that include one with a deer, one with a butterfly, and one with a bird.

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. 

I decided to make bookmarks with two of the Beauty Lies Within masculine and one feminine and a card with the bird die.

The feminine bookmark features the butterfly die...four were cutout...two  orange, one  green, and one black. The orange butterflies was cutout and adhered over the black base. The top butterfly was embossed and then adhered only on the right side so the left side looks like it's in flight. The green leaves were all cutout and adhered to the black base a little off center so the black showed a little along the edge. 

The Beauty Lies Within diecut was mounted on a Bloomin' Stacklet 2 diecut that was dry embossed with a Dotted Swiss embossing folder. To create the orange matting,  the same Bloomin Stacklet 2 die was used to cutout an orange layer. It was cut into quarters and they were adhered to the back of the white layer just so the orange layer showed past the ends of the white petal layers. Sewing was done around the edges of the background and the sentiment from the Taylored Expressions Chalkboard Elements set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. The black seam binding and the pearls on the butterfly finish it off. 

The masculine bookmark features the deer diecut from the Beauty Lies Within set. The deer was cut out of shimmery brown paper and backed with really rust. The Taylored Expressions Birch Tree Border was used to cut out two from Choice Kraft and one from chocolate chip card stock. They were layered and adhered to the Choice Snow White card stock layer.

The Label It diecut was stamped with a Happy Birthday stamp from the Taylored Expressions Shine Bright set and the sewing and hemp cording finish it off. 

The Bloomin' Stacklets dies were used to create the card base and the top layers were embossed with the Dotted Swiss embossing folder. The Beauty Lies Within bird diecut was cut out of chocolate chip card stock and  mounted on a round punched circle of pool party card stock.

The ribbon and twine finish it off.

My next project features the In flight Cutting Plate and the In Flight Overlays. The cutting plate was used on pink pirouette card stock which was then adhered to  polka dot patterned paper from MME's Lost & Found Heirloom 6x6 paper pad. 

The In Flight Overlays were used to cutout the butterflies in the same patterned paper and they were then adhered to the top of the cutting plate butterflies. The sentiment layer and sentiment from the TE  From Me To You set were stamped with versamark, embossed with white embossing powder, cut out with the  coordinating die, and adhered with foam tape.  The button and hemp cording finishes it off. 

Now, how about a little inspiration from the Baker's Dozen Design are going to love what they made for you today!!!!!
