Hey there, it's time for sneak peeks of the Taylored Expressions April Release!  Whoop!  This is such an amazing release and there is so much cool stuff to show you, so let's get to it!  I've got two projects to share with you today!  The first one is the stamp set Made in the Shade. My favorite season is fall, and those pumpkins were just calling out to me to be colored!  The Windy Tree die was also used to create this crisp, Autumn scene.

PUMPKINS:  YR18, YR15, YR12, YR00, E27, E25, E23, E21  GRASS:  YG67, YG25, YG21, YG00  TREE:  E27, E25, E23, E21, YR18, YR15, YR00, YG67, YG25, YG00  SKY:  BG11

STAMPS:  TE Made in the Shade
PAPER:  Neenah Solar White; Bazzill Raven Monochromatic 
INK:  Copic markers; Memento Tuxedo Black 
ACCESSORIES:  Spellbinders Grand Calibur; TE Taylored Dies (Windy Tree, Cloud Border); X-acto knife; paper snips; Zig 2-way glue pen; Bazzill Blackbird rhinestones; adhesive
TECHNIQUE(S):  Airbrushing; fussy cutting
SIZE OF FINISHED PROJECT:  A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2")

My second project features a bunch of the new dies.  Guess what...there's a new window die!  *swoon*  This one is called Picture Window and there are coordinating dies to go with it (Window Cat, Window Accessories and Flowerbox Sprigs & Flowers).  I used all of them except for Window Cat.  If there was any way I could squeeze the little kitty in, I would have!  Ha!  Kraft card stock was cut into 5/8" strips then layered onto the card front.  Copics were used to shade the "siding", windowbox, shutters and window.  You really can't see it in the picture, but I cut a little 1/2 circle that I attached to the back of the windowbox.  It was colored with the same greens that the foliage was colored with and used to mound the foliage.  Oh!  Great news...I started cleaning out my craft room and found the acetate that I lost.  I was able to create glass without having to dig through the trash!  *grin*  I love the little welcome sign in the flowerbox!  It's from the Many Minis - Occasions set, and it was the perfect way to finish this card!
