Taylored Expressions May Sneak Peeks: Dinosaurs and Robots

Hello everyone and welcome to day three of the Taylored Expressions May Sneak Peeks!!!! On day one we featured patriotic projects and yesterday we had Pages and Pockets we are going to show you lots of fun and super cute creations for the young and young at heart!!!! 

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 projects today feature the adorable new Dino-Mite stamp set and the coordinating dies called Dinos, the new Houndstooth Cutting Plate, and the new Robots dies that coordinate with the previously released stamp set called Far Out

For my first card, I stamped the dinosaurs onto Choice Snow White card stock and cut them out with the Dinos dies. Then I stamped the dinosaurs onto different colored polka dot patterned paper, shaded then with Copics and cut them out. 

 A Piece of green patterned paper was cut out with the Build a Scene-Rolling Hills die and adhered to the Choice Snow White background for the grass. Then the clouds were sponged on with bashful blue and my home made cloud die. The palm trees from the Ride the Wave set were stamped with wild wasabi and the sentiment was stamped on the Build a Scene - Sun die cut. The frame was created by first cutting out a piece of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" patterned paper. The inside was cutout with an exacto knife and pieces of scrap card stock were adhered to the backside for support. It was then adhered to the background with foam tape. The dinosaurs were then adhered with foam ribbons or bling were added because this is for a special boy and he wouldn't approve of anything frilly...LOL!!!

My next card features the cute little robot and space ship from the previously released Far Our set....the little robot was cutout with the coordinating Robots die,  paper pieced  with paper from A Charmed Life 6x6 paper pad, and popped up with foam tape. The space ship was stamped on the background, the clouds were sponged on, and then the space ship was paper pieced with the same paper as the robot. 

The little one eyed robots are actually the cutout pieces from the Houndstooth Cutting plate....a diecut from the Houndstooth Cutting Plate was used to sponge the *robots* floating down from the space ship. The Build a Scene - Rolling Hills die was used to cutout the grass and a little sewing was done on the top edge. 
The sentiments from the Far Out set were stamped on the Say What? Conversation Bubbles die cuts and the twine and goggley eyes finish it off. 

Check out what the Baker's Dozen Design Team created for you are going to be blown away!!!!
