Taylored Expressions May Release Day: Shades of Thanks Die!

Hello!  It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions which means that all of the new stamps and dies that we have been peeking over the last couple of days are available in the Fresh Out of the Oven Department!  

Today the DT is sharing projects made with some of the new dies and we are showing how you can use the same die in totally different ways~fun, right?  I am using the new Shades of Thanks Die on my projects today.  

For my first card, I cut the tree out with white cs and colored it with Copic markers.  I used some Echo Park Paper Co. For the Record 2 dp and added a border with the Open Scallop Border Die.  I used lots of layers and added some stitching .  I also popped the tree up on foam squares for some dimension.  Here's a close up:

I just love the detail that Taylor puts into her dies!  Gorgeous!

Next, I made a very CAS card using this same die.  This time, I used the negative of the Shades of Thanks tree by cutting it out of a white card stock and then backing it with some sage colored cs.  I stamped a sentiment from the new set Happily Ever After and added a satin bow.  Here is a close up of the tree:

Two totally different ways to use this beautiful die!

Hey there! I saw this on FB last night! Sooooooo pretty! Is that different than the shady tree cutting plate?
I have that one -- wondering if it's similar.
