Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek 1: Bunny Love

It's day 1 of sneak peeks for the February release from Taylored Expressions and we are thinking spring and Easter with some other fun occasions thrown in.  (Thinking ahead to spring will be a nice change from the bitterly cold weather for most of us, right??!)  You'll see an amazing variety over the next few days.  Everything you see this week will be available on Thursday, February 7th. Be sure to check out each of the creative team members' blogs for all of the sneak peeks - starting with the Taylored Expressions blog.  

I'm starting out with a pink Easter-themed card.  After rich fall colors, traditional Christmas colors, then reds for Valentines - it was wonderful to pull out the pinks.

Taylored Expressions Backstory - Easter Background

I went all out with two different pinks on the the new addition to the Backstory lines of stamps with Backstory - Easter Background (The first was for Valentines.)  This background has so many fun elements.  Not just the words, but there are eggs, and bunny ears and jelly beans - such a fun and interesting background.  Using a Misti, I stamped with Cupcake, then restamped just the center areas with Pink Champagne.

I thought that the previously released Block Party - Bunnies die along with Little Bits - Marshmallow Bunnies (which fits perfectly on one of the Block bunnies) would be the perfect decoration with the background.  It's a strip in the middle so doesn't cover much of the Backstory.  I also didn't want to cover it with a sentiment so used more pink with the Celebrate Script die.

As a total sidetrack, notice the bow on the bunny's ear.  The die actually comes with a bow-tie but because this will be going out to one of my sweet nieces, I wanted it to be more girly.  The Taylored Expressions store has fabulous search capabilities (and I hear it's going to get even better.)  I use it all the time when I'm shopping or crafting.  In this case I searched on "bow".  You don't just get products with bow in the name - you get every die set or stamp set that has a bow no matter how small an element it is.  Try it.  I typed in "bow" and found exactly what I wanted in the Little Bits - Christmas Confetti set!!  If you are shopping, try "unicorn" or "raccoon" and you'll get them all no matter which set they are in!

Here's the supply list for this card.  Keep reading because I have another sneak peek and a chance to win prizes!

We also have an addition to the Flip the Script line which are stamps that have a solid image and the same sentiment that can be used for cards or tags.  It's Flip the Script - Bunny Tag Stamp & Die Combo.

I cut an extra piece of the tag for this picture - how it really works is the pink is the front and I adhered the blue as the back.  So it coordinates with the card and has room for the "to/from" (which came from a Christmas set called Special Delivery but I use it all the time because I love the hearts.)

I decided to put the bunny in an Easter scene so I used the previously released Eventful - Bunny Border.  I cut it once in Sugar Cube and layered it on another in Oreo to give it a shadow.  The paper is from the Paper Pack - Playful Patterns - Sweet. I found the sentiment in another older set, Easter Wishes - I wanted it to be plain to contrast with the fun font on the bunny.

I love that everything coordinates and now I have a full set that is quick and easy!

Today was a cute Easter day.  Tomorrow I have a Christian Easter card (with more on Thursday) and a bit of kindness!  Head over to the TE blog for more sneak peeks, then I hope you come back tomorrow.

  1. Your projects are so sweet and cute, Kim! I especially love that bunny tag with the sentiment! And thanks for the tip about the search capabilities! So handy :) I feel like I'm always looking for little "bits" like that and know I have them somewhere but not quite sure where ;)

  4. While we're having a pretty typical Wisconsin winter, I will admit that I'm ready for a little more Springtime color in my life, too. Your cards fit the bill perfectly!! Those pinks are incredible, and I do love her little bow! Your second card and bunny tag are equally delightful. I especially like the polka dot paper on the tag. xo Bev
