TAYLORED EXPRESSIONS FEBRUARY SNEAK PEEK: EASTER DOODLES & BASKET-FULL

Hey there, it's time for sneak peeks of February's Taylored Expressions release...are you ready to be amazed!?!  The Baker's Dozen has some jaw-dropping projects to share with you this week!  To kick things off, I have two projects this morning...

The first one uses an adorable Whimsical Wishes set called Easter Doodles.  It's so stinkin' cute!  I wanted to make my Father-in-law an "eggstra" special Easter treat this year, and this is what I came up with.  



Greetings from the Easter Bunny...PRICELESS!  *grin*  The bunny in the middle was fussy cut and popped up on foam for dimension.  A Bugabee Flower completes the card.



My local card/scrapbook store has these awesome AccuCut dies available for us to use, and I've had my eye on the carrot for quite a while.  I can't believe how perfect the Whimsy Alpa dies are on the name card...the cursive script is awesome!  I'm tickled to be able to give him a personalized treat box!




COPIC COLORING: 
BUNNIES:  C3, C1, C00  EARS/NOSES:  R30, R00  EGG:  YR12, YR00, YR0000, YG25, YG21, YG00

SUPPLIES: 
STAMPS:  TE Easter Doodles
PAPER:  Neenah Solar White; Bazzill (Raven Monochromatic, Parakeet Monochromatic); Doodlebug Design Inc Hello Spring collection (Easter Bunnies)
INK:  Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES:  Spellbinders Grand Calibur; Taylored Dies (Whimsy Alpha; Bugabee Flowers); paper snips; Stamp-a-ma-jig; ScorPal; Crafter's Pick The Ultimate glue; Zig 2-Way Glue pen; PC mouse pad/stylus/tweasers (to shape the flowers); Bazzill Blackbird rhinestones; SU Dimensionals; adhesive
TECHNIQUE(S):  Fussy cutting
SIZE OF FINISHED PROJECT:  A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2")

The second project uses an Apple Doodle Ink set called Basket-Full.  It's a super fun set that takes you from Valentine's Day, to Spring and right into Easter...love it!  I decided to go with the spring flowers and I love the sentiment.  It reminds me of a poem my dad used to say to me:  Spring is Sprung, the grass is rize, I wonder where the birdies is.  Kind of corny, huh?  Ha!

Anyway, the basket was stamped on Neenah, masked with a sticky note, stamped with the flowers then colored with Copic markers.  Love the Taylored Dies Cloud Duo and Grass Border dies...they really bring this little scene to life!  I've been into white space on cards lately, so I stuck with it and left mostly white for an easy-peasy layout.

Would you be willing to share your paper measurements on the bunny card? I like the layout, and it gives me ideas for my Christmas card.
