Hi All! And a Very Happy Monday to you!! Welcome to our April 2014 Sneak Peeks! 8-) We've got Soo many Fabulous New Goodies this month! We'll be sharing tons of Awesome inspiration all the way through Thursday! Whoo Hoo!! 8-) And I just know you all are going to LOVE Everything! I know I sure have! ;-) & for a little Extra Fun...  

***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. 

Also, All of the new products will be available for purchase on Thursday, April 3rd at 7 am PST. You'll find it all in the New Department at the Taylored Expressions Store.

Today I am sharing  a couple of Fun Projects and the first one features the Brand New Greetings For Her stamp set, along with the Brand New Band It 2 Dies and  the Brand New Silhouette Stems 4 Die as well! Talk about a Fun combo of Dies to play with! The possibilities are just Endless!! And you know I am just Loving that!... ;-)

Well, for my project today, I chose to make a Sweet Mother's Day card, & I just Love how quick and easy it was to put together too! Yay! 8-) Love how it turned out too! 8-) 
My Sweet little wild flowers were created with the help of TE's Brand New Silhouette Stems 4 Dies & Bazzill CS. I adhered them to my fluffy cloud BG created with TE's Choice Snow White CS, Tumbled Glass Distress ink, A TE Cloud Border Die template and small stippling brush. My Mats and BG Layers were created with TE's Choice Butterceam CS , TE's Choice Kraft CS and Dp's from Doodlebug's Kraft in Color 6x6 collection. And to finish it all up I stamped my Greetings For Her sentiment with Memento Rich Cocoa onto a layered TE Band It 2 Die cut and added some Sweet adhesive pearls to my flowers centers... 8-)

Next up I'm featuring TE's Brand New Various Vases Dies along with the Brand New Darling Sketched Blooms and the Brand New Greetings For Her as well!... 8-) I just Love how Perfect they go together and talk about a quick way to create Wonderful cards for all kinds of occasions too! I know I will be reaching for these sets again and again!;-)

I had lots of fun putting this Sweet little Thank You card together! 8-)  I Think Thank You cards and Birthday cards are the ones I find my self needing more often then any other type of card, so I always try to keep a bunch on hand in my stash just in case!... ;-)

I stamped my Sweet Sketched Blooms with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto TE's Choice Snow White CS & colored them up with my trusty Copics. I added my Pretty polkadot vase with the help of TE's Brand New Various Vases Dies and popped it up with a bit of foam tape. My Mats and BG were created with Simple Stories Homespun 6x6 collection and a touch of Vintage Photo Distress inkTo finish it all up I added some cheery Doodlebug Sprinkles, & stamped my Greetings For Her sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black, directly onto my Focal panel... 8-)

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Wow I was admiring the first cards but truly drooled when I got to the second one. I think it is to primary colour combo, but it is perfect!! Love it!!

  2. Oh my gosh - these are stunning! I can't decide which I like more. They are both fabulous!

  3. Your Mother's Day card is beautiful! I am slowly beginning to love the color purple! It seems to be the next big thing these days and I have seen some lovely shades of it. I might even give making a purple card a try! LOL
    Your Thank You card is also very pretty! I love the simplicity of it yet it is still so pretty! TFS!

  4. SO SO SO pretty! I love that cute polka dot vase! That whole card is so happy. WHAT a GREAT idea to make a cloud background for those pretty flower dies! Crafty genius strikes again! So lovely. Happy Release Week my sweet pal! :-)

  5. OH, these are so pretty Shannon. Love the purple silhouette blooms. They are so elegant and pretty... the coloring looks great on the second card. Love the extra little touches like the sponged vase, the candy dots... just perfect in every way.

  6. What pretty purple blooms on your first card, Shannon, and I love your beautiful colored flowers on the second!!! Love how you added all the enamel dots, too!!!

  7. Oh wow!!! I love that you used the flower die several times on your first card. Awesome!!! That second card... blowing me away! I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!

  8. The purple flowers set a "sweetness" that is a definite plus, and the vase card is so lovely I am wanting that set right now.

  9. Oh, my gosh, these are fabulous, Shannon! Love the pretty garden in the first card. Have to say I'm a total sucker for flowers in vases, and I love those CUTE flowers and the idea of the fun die cut vases. The sentiment is great, too. It is one I would use a lot and the font is so cute and perfect with the flowers. I'm hoping I see these sets and dies at our local paper crafts store. I WILL snatch them up!

  10. Pssst!! Shhhh! Don't tell her how lucky she is to have you! Your cards are just so warm, cheerful and works of art! They will be cherished! I wouldn't know how to pick!!

  11. Both of these are absolutely lovely. Wonderful flowers on the first and your papers on the second are fab.
