TE Sneak Peek Day 3: Our Savior

It's the third day of sneak peeks for the February release from Taylored Expressions!  Today I am focusing on the true meaning of Easter - our Savior, the King of Kings!  Everything you see today will be available tomorrow - Thursday, February 8th.  Be sure to check out each of the creative team members' blogs for all of the sneak peeks - starting with the Taylored Expressions blog.

Over the last few months, you have seen the release of the Iconic Wishes Stamp & Die combos with a fall set and a Christmas set.  The newest addition is a cross that can be used for Easter or anytime - Iconic Wishes - Savior Stamp & Die Combo. Even more fun, there are two crosses, one is filled and one is unfilled.  Here's what I did with the filled cross.

The other sneak peek on this card is the Floral Frenzy stamps and the dies.  It's a fun set that's just a bit off-kilter - it deliberately does not line up to give you that loose look.

The filled cross is bold so I paired it with a graphic cutting plate for the background and bright reds and greens.  There's also an unfilled cross that has a more delicate look.  I used the same general layout as the first card, but I used softer colors, added a background color so the lighter cross didn't get lost, and used a more delicate cutting plate for the background.  Here's the unfilled version.

This cross set is a fabulous addition to the Christian products at Taylored Expressions!

Next I am using a brand new background - Petite Petals Background.  Staying with the Easter theme, I paired it with the previously released He is Risen and a little cross from Little Bits - Crosses.  (As you are checking out the other designers, notice that there is also a new Christian sentiment set called Words of Faith that is shaped perfectly to fit into this background!)

The background is so detailed, I kept the rest of this card very simple.  I sponged a bit of soft pink on the edges, then stamped the background in gray.  I used Stitched Oval Stacklets and Inside Scallop Oval Stacklets to create a frame.  A simple pink cross with a gem is the only accent.  Here's a closer look at the detail in the background stamp.

Kim, I'm not even going to try to highlight the elements on your cards that have caught my eye: my comment would be novel-length (and I've already walked that path with my previous ones!). Let's say this: I LOVE your Easter cards and if I had these products, I'd be proud to make several 'cases' to donate to my mom's volunteer organization. The essence of Easter, conveyed in a most gorgeous fashion....
