Taylored Expressions April Sneak Peek: Made in the Shade and A Glimpse Inside!



Hello!  It's time for some sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions!  All of the new products that you see over the next couple of days will be available on Thursday at the Taylored Expressions Store!

First up I have this fun new set called Made in the Shade and a fabulous new cutting plate called Shade Tree Cutting Plate!  Made in the Shade is a full sized set that comes with several adorable images sitting amongst rolling hills.  These images can be used on their own, or paired with this awesome tree!  

For my card, I cut the tree with brown cs, then cut it again with red, yellow, and orange cs so I could add some fun fall colors to the leaves.  I used these adorable pumpkins from the Made in the Shade set and then thought that this darling owl from the current TE set Hoot Hoot Hooray with Coordinating Dies would look so cute in the tree!  I cut out the hills and the pumpkins so that I could layer them over some My Mind's Eye Collectable Remarkable dp.  Here's a close up:


You can see that I stamped the pumpkins twice so I could cut them out and pop them up for dimension:)  


Next up I have a card using the new set A Glimpse Inside!  Last month we released From My Window which was looking out, and this month with A Glimpse Inside we are peeking in!  We also have a new window shaped die called Picture Window Die, but this set also coordinates with last month's released Arched Window Die.  

I used the lovely tea set and coordinating sentiment from A Glimpse Inside to make this pretty Mother's Day Card.  Did you notice the curtain and the flower box?  This is another new die set that coordinates with the window dies called Window Accessories Dies!  There is also a shutter die in this set which I can't wait to use!  I stamped the sentiment on a banner cut with a Banner Stacklets 1 Die, and added a pretty border with the Lace Chain Border Die.  The dp is My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Howdy Doody.  Here's a close up:


Make sure you check out more sneak peeks from the rest of the Baker's Dozen!  I know you are just going to love their amazing projects!
