Taylored Expressions February Sneak Peeks: Stained Glass Cutting Plate and Beauty Lies Within

Hello everyone!! Are you as excited about this awesome release as I am?? I just love all the new Taylored Expressions Easter goodies!...they really put me in the mood for Spring!!!! 
We have lots more to show you today so sit back, have a cuppa something and enjoy the show!!!! But first, remember.....

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.

The new TE Stained Glass Cross Cutting Plate was used for my first card, today. I absolutely love this cutting really makes a statement!! I cut several Taylored Expressions cardstock: Sugar Cube, Plum Punch, Lollipop, Peapod, Sprinkles, and Potato Chip. The Sugar Cube diecut was adhered to a piece of  cardstock and then the different colored cardstock pieces were glued into the negative space around the cross. Another Sugar Cube diecut was cut... the cross was cutout and popped up on the first cross. 

Glitter was added to the top cross and the gem was glued in place. The vellum was cut into a banner shape and the sentiment from the previously released  He Is Risen stamp set was stamped with Memento Sweet was adhered over the cross. I think the next time I make one of these, I will add Glossy Accents to the stained glass will take a little time but I bet it would look great!! Adding foil paper or colored acetate would look awesome, too...sooo many possibilities!!!

My next card is a very CAS design featuring one of the new TE Beauty Lies Within 2 dies. The diecut was adhered to the Salt Water Taffy cardbase inside the negative of the Sugar Cube top layer that was popped up with foam tape. 

The sentiment from the Calla Lily Bouquet stamp set was stamped with Versamark and embossed with white ep just above the larger bottom top layer. A strip of Sugar Cube cardstock was adhered above the sentiment with foam tape so the sentiment is in the *valley* between the two top layers. The For Peeps Sake Sequins complete the design.
