Taylored Expressions April Sneak Peeks: Greetings For Her and Silhouette Stems 6

It's Day 1 of sneak peeks at Taylored Expressions and we have a lot of fabulous new products to share with you!!  Today I am featuring a new stamp set called Greetings For Her as well as a new die called Silhouette Stems 6!  My first project features a greeting from Greetings For Her.  As you can guess, all of the greetings in this set are for women whether they be a sister, an aunt, a mother. . .you get the picture.  :)  I used the "generic" sentiment in the set because later I can add the "sister, aunt or mother" sentiment above the "you're the best".  :) 

This card also uses two new dies.  The flowers were created using the Silhouette Stems 4, and the background was created using the Spotted Cutting Plate, which I used as an impression plate on this card using the Dry Emboss Brayering Technique.  I used the Melon Melody Kaleidacolor ink pad to get the gradient of color on the background. 

The second project I have to share today uses the Silhouette Stems 6 die as well as two other new dies!  I cut the flowers in red and green cardstock and then cut just the flowers off the red and attached them over the green die cuts to get the two-color flower.  The background on this card was created using the NEW Spotted Cutting Plate.

I LOVE the look this cutting plate gives to a card.  It adds some interest without being too much, I think.  The sentiment is from the NEW Sketched Blooms set and it is stamped onto a piece that was die cut with the NEW Band It 2!!  I know I'll be using the NEW Band It 2 Die a lot!  I love the first one and have no doubts this one will be my new favorite!  ;)

Both of your cards are great. I'm a "fan of circles". I like the colors in the first card.
