Taylored Expressions April Spotlights: Mother's Day Tulips

Today Taylor and her team are spotlighting new products for April and I have a simple Mother's Day card to show using A Glimpse Inside. I designed and sized each image in A Glimpse Inside and From My Window to work with the new window dies but also to work with banner stacklets 1 and banner stacklets 2

I've used paper from the My Mind's Eye indie chic 6x6 paper pad and coloured the focal image with copics and prismacolors. I've also tucked ric rac cut with the new Ric Rac Border dies

What's your favourite new product at Taylored Expressions? I'm thrilled with this Whimsical Wishes window collection and what I've seen people creating with them. ; )

Taylored Expressions April Sneak Peek: You're Going Places!

I get to play along today too with two new Mokas, Skylar and Jerome. I really needed these two last June when my twins graduated from Grade 8! Here they are...

I know Aidan will eventually catch up with Morgana, but it's funny how girls are heads above some of the boys in grade 8. 

I thought I'd create a 'you go, girl' kind of card. 

I masked Jerome in the background to create a graduating class and then brought Skylar front and centre and in colour. "dream" is included with the Windy Tree die. I added the line to emphasize that she's going places! My Moka is coloured with copics and paper pieced, then shaded with prismacolors.

These Moka petite sets and all other stamps, dies and products featured this week will be available on Thursday morning at 8am PST.

Taylored Expressions April Sneak Peek: Dies Make It Easy!

Today is the first day of TE sneak peeks for April and I'm playing along with images and dies I illustrated. I hear that From My Window sold out in a hurry last month, so I'm looking forward to seeing what Taylor's talented Baker's Dozen does with my sequel, A Glimpse Inside today. From My Window focuses on outdoor images seen from inside; A Glimpse Inside turns it around and shows what's happening inside! A new window and other coordinating dies are also part of this release and will be available (with all of the goodies featured this week) on Thursday morning at 8am PST. I've used the cat silhouette die and the "Thinking of You" sentiment from A Glimpse Inside in my first card:

The outdoor image is part of the From My Window set, coloured with copics and prismacolors. I paired this sweet cat with the Arched Window die

For my next card, I used the negative cut from my new Windy Tree die and stamped "Believe," also from From My Window. I'll be using images from A Glimpse Inside later this week.

My cards are simple, but I hope they inspire.
