Taylored Expressions May Sneak Peek: Blooming in Love

Hello crafty friends! Welcome to the second and final day of sneak peeks for our May Release! In case you missed any of the amazing projects from Day 1, you can start the tour by clicking here.  Today I'm excited to feature our new full size stamp set, Happily Ever After.  With wedding season fast approaching I needed a stamp set that combined the elegance of a wedding with traditional TE cuteness.  This set does just that!

I began by using watercolor paper for my card front, stamping the flowers in Versamark, and embossing with white embossing powder. I watercolored inside each of the blooms with Tim Holtz distress markers. Then I masked all of the flowers and airbrushed around them with Copic BG10. It took a bit of time to achieve the end result, but I really love the softness that the watercoloring and airbrushing gives! Here's a closeup:

To top off the card I inked up the Mr. & Mrs. stamps (also included in the Happily Ever After set) and added pearls and brads to the center of some of the blooms to make them pop even more.

This set, along with all of the new stamps and dies, will be available in the TE store starting tomorrow at 8am PST.  In the meantime, the gals on the Baker's Dozen Design Team have whipped up another amazing batch of sneak peeks using the new items.  Just click on any link below to see what they came up with!  And don't forget, we have a ton of fun and prizes planned for tonight's Preview Party (6pm PST) over on our Facebook page.  I'd love for you to join us!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I'll be back tomorrow with all the details on our May Release.

Happy stamping!
