Taylored Expressions December Sneak Peeks - Patite-a-Palooza Day 2! 8-)

Hi All! And a Very Happy Wednesday to you! Today I'm back to share more December Patite-a-Palooza Sneak Peeks! Yay! 8-) And just in case you didn't get a chance to stop by yesterday, All of the new products will be available for purchase Tomorrow, Thursday, December 5th at 7 am PST. You'll find it ALL in the New Department at the Taylored Expressions StoreYay!! 8-)

Well, today I am Super Thrilled to share a couple more Fun Sneak Peek projects and the first one features the Beautiful Brand New Shine Bright set that comes with 2 Coordinating Dies.. I had lots of fun with this Elegant set.. and I know you will Love creating lots of quick easy & Fabulous projects with it for many occasions throughout the year!...8-)
And as you can see, I am sticking with my Valentine's/Love theme, lol ;-) I stamped my Shine Bright Chandelliers with Colorbox Chianti and Shabby Pink inks onto TE's Choice Snow White CS, cut them out with the coordinating Shine Birght Dies and popped them up with a bit of foam tape beneath my slim adhesive strips of black gems.
My Mats and BG were created with Bazzill CS, TE's Choice Snow White CS, & MME's Lost & Found Heirloom 6x6 collection. To finish it all up I stamped my Light Up My Life sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black, directly onto my BG and added a bit of velvet ribbon from my stash... Easy peasy, no...? ;-)  Well believe it or not, not so... Funny story, this card was a bit of a challenge for me, lol and this is actually my 2nd version and I like it much better than the first here...
lol  I'm such a visual person that sometimes I almost need to create a card just to figure out how it "Should" look, lol..  I had an idea in my mind, but just couldn't get it to work IRL, to me it was just too busy...Has that ever happened to you?  So I let the card sit there for a while, ended up giving up and was actually just going to go with it, even thought I still wasn't happy with it.. lol  It wasn't until I photographed it did the fix I wanted come to mind.. lol So believe it or not this is the card that took the longest for me to make this release! Lol 8-) 

Next up, I'm featuring the Brand New Super Cute Big Delivery set! 8-) LOVE this Fun set & it's Great Vintage truck,(I Love old trucks!!) Coordinating Die and so many cute versatile ways to use it too! And you know I am Loving that! ;-)

I stamped my Fun Big Delivery Vintage Truck and load of hearts with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto TE's Choice Snow White CS, colored them up with my trusty Copics, cut out my Snazzy red truck out with the coordinating Big Delivery Die, fussy cut out the hearts, and popped them both up with a bit of foam tape.
My Mats and BG were created with TE's Choice Kraft CSChoice Snow White CSTE's Cloud Border Die, Tumbled Glass Distress ink, a small stippling brush (to create my fluffy clouds) & MME's Lost & Found Heirloom 6x6 collection. For my sentiment I stamped a combination of a part of my Big Delivery sentiment along with a part of a sentiment from TE's Stuck on You with Memento Tuxedo Black & the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig directly onto my Card Base. And to finish it all up, I added a bit of velvet ribbon from my stash, some polkadot ribbon tied up in a fun bow with the help of my handy dandy Bow Easy and topped it all off with a Sweet silver heart button... 8-)
