Day 2 of Sneak Peeps!



We're getting closer to the March release being available at Taylored Expressions and one year of Whimsical Wishes!! You'll be seeing a few of our favourite 'peeps' today if you hop along with the Taylored Expressions Baker's Dozen. It's Day 2 of sneaks and I'm showing you some of the sweet images from the newest Whimsical Wishes set, which is called Favorite Peeps.



I've used the nestie-friendly egg image stamped on PTI's lemon tart cardstock and highlighted with copics, half pearls and liquid pearl. My little guy (who started out as a duck in this set) is coloured with copics, trimmed and popped up higher than the egg frame, which is also popped up. Lots of layers! I picked up this dotted EK Success edge punch at Michael's this week and layered the black over coordinating patterned paper. Although it's not new, I love this Basic Grey urban prairie paper. Hoping it's fresh and fun.

But I didn't stop there. I love Easter images so I have two more cards for you. This adorable little bunny went through quite the transformation to become who he/she is today. What's better than one bunny--two!


Actually as a mother of twins, I find myself purchasing things in twos and I think this card would be perfect for spring babies. The bunny twins are stamped on white along with the sentiment and then on three different patterned papers for the paper pieced layers. I created the grass using my new Silhouette SD and a download shape (Grass by Silhouette). Love the Silhouette and its possibilities!!!!! Although I couldn't get enough of certainly celery when Karen Motz first introduced me to Stampin' UP!, I haven't used it for a very long time but I think it works here.

And finally, a wee birdie for bird lovers out there (Jami, Karen, Char,....).


The birdie and branch are one image and then there are three tiny eggs to play with. I've used both copics and prismacolors on this image after my weekend classes at Stamping Bella with Linda and Paula. Amazing talent!! I smudged the pink egg outside of the lines but now I feel so relieved to 'get' that shading and outer glow using prismas can salvage almost anything. The card background is another Silhoutte download (bubble card by Valerie Foster). I punched different sized circles from s.e.i. ally's wonderland poppy parade patterned paper and adhered them behind some of the holes in the pattern.

Thanks for looking! Let's go see what the rest of the TE team is showcasing today...
