Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 1

Did February fly by or what?  I can't believe tomorrow's March already!  With a new month, though, comes a new release at Taylored Expressions!  Today I have two new sets to share with you!  The first is the It's a Banner Day 2 set and coordinating die.  This set is the second in the It's a Banner Day Series concepted by Iwona Palamountain.  It was illustrated by Taylor for the TE Collection.  It is a set of 9 images (3 banners and 6 sentiments).  I decided to pair It's a Banner Day 2 with the Easter Blessings set.  I thought the banner would go well with the cross for an Easter card.  The papers are from the Restoration Collection by Crate Paper. 

I stamped the cross in Ocean Depth VersaMagic onto Choice Buttercream cardstock and die cut it using the Take Note Die 2 die.  I added some Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to the little tabs.  I then stamped the banner from It's a Banner Day 2 in Bamboo Leaves onto Choice Buttercream and die cut it using the Banner Day 2 die.  I created the matte using the Take Note 3 die.  I die cut the scalloped border out of patterned paper using the Medium Scallop Border die.  Finally I added a little faux stitching and tied some ribbon on the card.

The second set I'm featuring today is the Spring Wreath set.  It coordinates with the Seasonal Wreath die and is the third set in the seasonal wreath series concepted by Jami and illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line.  It is a set of 7 images including 2 sentiments!  I used the new Spring Project Pantry for this card. 

I stamped the wreath onto Choice Snow White cardstock and die cut it using the Seasonal Wreath die.  I colored the wreath and flower from the set using Copic markers.  I added some Stardust Stickles to give some texture and sparkle.  Finally I added a few sparkly brads from the Spring Project Pantry to the bottom right corner of the card. 

These sets will be available for purchase on Thursday, March 3rd at 8am Pacific!  Be sure to visit the rest of the Baker's Dozen to see more eye candy using these sets as well as one more set that's being released on Thursday!
