TE Sneak Peek Day 2: Unicorns and Rainbows

It's day 2 of sneak peeks for the January release from Taylored Expressions!! It's a magical day with with unicorns and rainbows (and if you check out the rest of the creative team you'll also see dragons!)  Everything you see in the next four days of sneak peeks will be available on Thursday, January 12, 2017.  Be sure to check out each of the creative team members' blogs for all of the sneak peeks - starting with the Taylored Expressions blog.

Isn't this unicorn sweet?  He's from the Dreamer Stamp & Die Combo. And there's another guy in the set too, plus three more sentiments!

TE Dreamer

I paired him with the new Stitched Cloud Duo.  (Is it possible to have too many cloud dies?)  I love stitching - it just finishes off the look.  To add even more dimension, I cut one through the card front and backed it with some Lavender Glaze cardstock to which I had applied glitter (or an sparkly embossing powder would work perfectly.)  There's also some sparkle on his horn.

Then I needed some place for him to be head to so I pulled out the previously released Little Bits - Castle.  I just used the turret from the set because the entire castle just didn't fit well in my layout.

LOVE the magic of this card!

Here's what's on this card - but be sure to keep reading for a chance at prizes and another sneak peek.

Before I share a peek at another new product, I'm excited to tell you that Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the TE blog to answer Taylor's Question of the Day for a chance to win a prize from the latest release!

My next projects shows off a wonderful new cutting plate - the Rainbow Cutting Plate.  It could be used with the Dreamers from above - or any of the other magic being shown off by the rest of the design team.  I decided to add a Christian quote from the previously released Be Still.

TE Rainbow Cutting Plate

I LOVE the stitched detail on each rainbow stripe.  I also used the new Cloud Nine Background.  I wanted something subtle on the white edges so I embossed the cloudy background with sparkly embossing powder.

TE Rainbow Cutting Plate

I love this rainbow.  It can go so many directions.  It could be subtle and become just an interesting background.  Or it can be bold and bright and be the focal point.

I hope you enjoyed today's sneak peeks!  Be sure to head over to the TE blog for links to the rest of the creative team and to enter the question of the day contest.

Okay...just stop now....I can't stop falling in love with your cards. That. Unicorn. Little Avie adores unicorns. And this is about the cutest little sweetie ever. What a fantastic scene you've created. I think my budget might be in trouble, lol! He'd work great with that rainbow die, too. Love that verse, and needed to hear it today, so thanks for that! Fabulous cards Miss Kim. Heading over to TE and going try to resist temptation until February...Uh-huh... ; ) Bev

Oh my, Kim...magical creations today! Your rainbow card is lovely, especially paired with the sentiment you've chosen. The unicorn has completely captured my heart! I'd love to design such a card for my niece who is fascinated by all things unicorn. I bought her a few books in the Unicorn Magic series, and we started reading them together. I'm smitten with the story lines, too...looking forward, when next I visit my family, to finding out how Princess Bella is paired with her special unicorn, Glitter....Thank you for the smiles today!
