Taylored Expressions February Day 1 Sneak Peeks: Moka Shannon & Sack It - Bunny

Hello! Welcome to the first day of Taylored Expressions February Sneak Peeks! The Baker's Dozen is kicking off 4 days of projects (3 days of peeks and release day). We are releasing 7 new stamp sets, 11 new dies and 4 new cutting plates! All products will be released on Thursday, February 6, @ 7 AM PST.

My first project features the newest Moka girl... Moka Shannon! This sweet girl loves all things St. Paddy's Day and was named after our own Irish cutie, Shannon White! I was finally able to meet Shannon in person at CHA last month, and she is just the sweetest person! I wish we lived closer so we could hang out more often. Without further adieu, here's my Moka Shannon card...

Moka Shannon was stamped, colored with Copics and fussy cut. She was popped up with foam tape over a background of the newest Graphic Greetings St. Paddy's Day which was stamped and framed with the Pockets & Pages - 3x4 Photo Frame. Here's a detail shot:

My next project uses one of three new Sack Its. This one is called Sack It - Bunny. I created a little Easter gift set, making the bunny into a card and using the new Wicker Pocket die to create an Easter basket which I filled with yummy jelly beans!

The base of the card was created with the Sack It to You die out of Choice Buttercream cardstock (trimmed to eliminate the portions to create the sack). The bunny pieces were created with Taylored felt (Antique White, Black Licorice, Cotton Candy and Strawberry) and adhered with Best Glue Ever.

To create the basket, I die cut the Wicker Pocket 4 times out of Choice Kraft cardstock, adhered the sides together and cut out a little piece of cardstock to make the bottom of the basket solid. I created a tag (using Tag Stacklets 2 and Tag Reinforcements) and stamped a sentiment from Big Bold Easter.
