TE Sneak Peek Day 2: Fashionista & Wreath of Luck

So glad you’ve joined us for Day 2 sneak peeks with Taylored Expressions!  On the menu today, we have 1 full size and 1 petite set and a Lucky Sampler to get you ready for St. Patrick’s Day projects! 

fashionista day 2For my first project, I have a card to share with you using Fashionista, a new set in the Apple Doodle, Ink line of stamps featuring TEna!  She is one hot chick in her cute dress and knee high boots, eh?  This card was a lot of fun since I love combining sets, I paired her with Window Shopping for the BIG SHOE SALE she is eyeing!  On the inside of the card there is a sentiment that says, “when I get tired of shopping, I sit down and try on shoes” isn’t that too funny?  I can’t say it’s me because I am not much of a shoe person, or shopping person for that matter but this is still a FUN set for me to play with because I do have some gal friends this card would be perfect to send/give to, especially if I want to slip in a gift card.

For my second project, I have a St. Patrick’s Day treat to share with you using the new Wreath of Luck petite set illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line.  I am also using products that will be available in the Lucky Sampler that will be available in a limited quantity on Friday for release day!  I had fun coloring this wreath, which was die cut using the wreath die.  I added some ribbon and a little stamped horseshoe from the set to the bottom of the wreath.  Inside the favor treat are some green key lime life savers (sorry I forgot to photograph that).  I used some sticky tape on the bottom of the favor and adhered some of the green sparkly fluff that comes in the sampler for a fun border.
