Taylored Expressions March Sneak Peeks: Forever and Always and Block Party - Love

Hello everyone and welcome to the Taylored Expressions March Sneak Peeks!!! I can hardly believe it's March already...we have daffodils blooming and the peach trees are loaded with must be spring!!! The theme for this months release is weddings and spring...I can't wait to show you all the new Taylored Espressions stamps, dies, embossing folders, papers, and sequins!!!!  So get comfortable with a cuppa something and let's get started, but first.....

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 first card features the Forever and Always was cut out of Silver Metallic paper, adhered to a piece of acetate, and mounted on foam tape to create a shaker card. The new TE Wedding Sequins, gold glass glitter, and tiny hearts cut with one of the Carried Away coordinating  heart dies were used in the shaker. 

The background was created by adhering stripes of White Shimmer Paper and Gold Metallic Paper. Sticky tape was added around the background edges and sprinkled with gold glass glitter. The tiny hearts cut out of White Shimmer Paper with the Carried Away coordinating heart die and gold cording finishes it off. 

My next card was created with the new Carried Away stamp set and coordinating dies and the awesome new Block Party - Love die!! The Carried Away couple was stamped with Memento Gray Flannel and the sentiment from the same set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black across the balloon tails. The little hearts were cut from Cherry Pop cardstock and adhered to the end of the stamped balloon tails. 

The Block Party - Love die was used at the bottom of the card base and paper from the  We Go Together 6x6 paper pad was used to frame the diecut and to matt it on the back inside.  This die could be used vertically, horizontally, or on a diagonal...I sooo love it!!

WOW! Joan, both of these are so pretty! Love the dies and that stamp set on the second card.
Typical Texas weather here - hot one day and cold the next! Spring will be here shortly though.

Fabulous cards. Great glitz and glamour on the first and the carried away set I think is my favourite of this release - every creation I have seen with it is amazing.
