Spring is in the Air! Day 2 Sneak peeks!


Happy Spring sugarbunnies!! 

Okay, so it's not exactly spring yet, but bear with me! I am all about getting ready for the upcoming season and the fun holidays that come with it!!  Did you all love the awesome "You're my Hero" stamp set??  I still can't get over how utterly cool it is - you're going to be seeing a lot of it from me!  whoo-hoo!

Well today I am showing you TWO new sets that will also be released tomorrow at the TE store!! You're going to fall in love with the versatility of these 2 new sets!  Here is a quick look at my first peek!

I just LOVE Easter.  I love the pretty colors, the tranquility, and most of all I love the opportunity to reflect, and to feel at peace within.  I am thrilled that everything I love about Easter is beautifully represented and celebrated in this new stamp set called "Easter Blessings".  There is a wonderful variety of sentiments, verses and of course lovely symbols of our faith.  This is the card I made using my Easter Blessings stamp set:

For my card today, I paired my Easter Blessings stamp set with the gorgeous Easter Key Ingredients, also being introduced by Taylored Expressions this Friday (March 5th).  This Key Ingredients collection is absolutely delish - it features the patterned paper "Kioshi" collection from Basic Grey.  I LOVE, love the sweet colors and patterns which of course, still have the "distressing" that is so much a trademark of Basic Grey paper.  I decided to allow myself a bit of distressing for my image panel, and the beautiful cross which I wanted to use to accent and keep the focus on my panel.  I am in love, I think it's just the right kind of look I was hoping to get.  This pretty little flowers are also from my Easter KI kit, as are the buttons and the ribbon I used to embellish my card.  I SO hope you love this as much as I do!!

Of course, there is more!  for my next peek I decided to go in the absolute opposite direction. 

want to see a little peek?


This next stamp set is called Favorite Peeps, and it is just one more gorgeous addition to Nancy McKinney's Whimsical Wishes line.  While this stamp set is just perfect for all of your Easter cards and treats, I decided I wanted to try pairing my little peep with some more of my Rock Star Key Ingredients for a bit of funky chick fun!

Is this stinkin' cuteness or what??? I just LOOOVE this little chick, and I did a bit of masking so I could give her a BFF to hang out with!  I colored my "chicks" using copics, and then added a bit of Star Dust Stickles to add a little glam! This gorgeous (and FUN!!) flower is a fancy addition to the TE store for Spring!  so fun, and bright I am just beside myself!  As for this sentiment - do they get any cuter than this? I think it is just perfect, and I will be using it a LOT!!  

I hope you like my little peeks into these very different and incredibly lovely stamp sets!  I would love for you to check out some more inspiration featuring these two sets, so please stop by for a visit with the rest of the Baker's Dozen - you will be floored, I promise!!
