Taylored Expressions April Sneak peeks: Day 2 - Sunshiny Day

Hello everyone and welcome to day 2 of the Taylored Expressions April Sneak Peeks!! I hope you liked all the new goodies we showed you you are in for a real treat because I will be featuring my favorite new set called Sunshiny Day!! This is my favorite because it was made from a concept that I shared with Taylor a few months's such a joy to see my idea made into a stamp set...Whoohoo!!!! 

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 card features the adorable little owls,  branch, sun, and sentiment stamps from Sunshiny Day....they were all stamped on Choice Snow White and the clouds were sponged with pool party ink. The owls were stamped on a separate piece of white card stock, colored with Copics, cutout, and popped up with foam tape. 

The branches, flowers, and sun were also colored with pearls were added to the flowers and the button with a hemp cording bow were added to the sun. The sewing and stamped sentiment finish it off. 

I also made a set of thank you cards with the trees from the Sunshiny Day set and the Label Stacklets 8 dies. 

The card bases were cut from Choice Kraft with the Label Stacklets 8 dies and the trees were all stamped on the Choice Buttercream layer. The tree trunks were colored with Copics and the sentiment was stamped over the trunk.

The tree tops were all paper pieced with paper from Echo Park's Dots and Stripes 6x6 paper pad and the leaves and flowers were colored with Copics. ...pearls and enamel dots were added and....

the sewing along the bottom is the finishing touch. 

Now, how about a little Baker's Dozen inspiration...check out their gorgeous projects!!
