Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks: Southwest Cutting Plate and Follow Your Arrow

Hi there!  Welcome back for Day 2 of Sneak Peeks at Taylored Expressions!  I hope you've been enjoying what you've been seeing so far!  Today I have two more projects to share with you!  The first uses the NEW Southwest Cutting Plate!  I started my card with a piece of white cardstock and sponged Distress Inks onto it.  I used Abandoned Coral, Fossilized Amber and Cracked Pistachio, all part of Mini Set 13.

Next I die cut the Southwest Cutting Plate out of Sprinkles cardstock and adhered it over the sponged panel.  I stamped a sentiment from the NEW Free Spirit set onto a piece of Red Pepper cardstock.

The feather were die cut out of Granny Smith, Oreo and Pumpkin cardstock using the NEW Fine Feathers Die Set.  I used a little detail stamp from the NEW Simply Stamped - Daisies set to add the detail to the feathers in white ink.  To finish the card, I added some sequins from the Wedding Sequins.

The second project I have for you today uses the NEW Follow Your Arrow Die Set.  This is a fun die set that contains all different kinds of arrows.  I started by die cutting a bunch out of Lollipop, Granny Smith, Lemon Meringue and Plum Punch cardstocks.  After diecutting all of the arrows, I embossed an Oreo piece of cardstock with the NEW Ikat Embossing Folder.  I LOVE this embossing folder!  I just love the pattern and texture it produces!

After arranging the arrows on the card, I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Free Spirit set.  I also cut off a couple of the hearts from the one arrow and coated them with Glossy Accents to make little embellishments!   To finish this card off, I adhered a piece of Granny Smith cardstock along the bottom and used a white gel pen to add some faux stitching.

I hope you've enjoyed today's sneak peeks!  Please stop back again tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous cards! I like the variegated inked background of the Southwestern card, and the happy neon arrows on the other. Thanks for the inspiration!

I like the background you have created for both cards. That's a great layout for the arrows - I would have been playing around with that for ages! With the colors and design chosen, both are fun cards.
