Taylored Expressions June Sneak Peeks: Notable Blooms & The Little Things

Hello! Welcome to Day 3 of Taylored Expressions June Sneak Peeks! This release is HUGE!!! We are releasing 13 new stamp sets, 12 dies, 9 Little Bits dies and 3 cutting plates! All products will be released tomorrow @ 7 AM PST.

My first project is a set of three cards using Notable Blooms (medium size stamp set and the coordinating dies). For each card, I stamped the sentiment onto Choice Snow White and matted it onto a piece of dark grey cardstock and added some stitching around. Each flower bloom was stamped onto Choice Snow White, colored with Copic markers, die cut, then popped up with foam tape. Queen & Co yellow jellies finish off the center of each flower.

Here's a closer look at each card. A thank you card...

... an everyday card

... and a birthday card, which I already gave to my SIL Mary, who celebrated her birthday earlier this week. Happy Birthday, Sis!

My next card uses The Little Things, illustrated by the sweet Danielle Lounds. The background features the new Lattice Cutting Plate. I stamped the image onto Choice Kraft cardstock, colored with Copic markers and die cut using Tag Stacklets 2.

After embossing the sentiment onto vellum, I made it into a pocket, keeping the top portion open so that the tag can be removed and used as a tag or bookmark. Here it is outside of the pocket:
