Sweet Treats for Spring...Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 3!

Today is Day 3 of Sneak Peeks for Taylored Expressions and it should prove to be a "sweet" day. I have two projects to share and I'm so glad you stopped in!

First up is a card just in time for Spring -- yes, Spring is almost here! This month, TE is releasing (tomorrow!) a darling a la Carte set, Pennant, which has a coordinating die. That's right, no need to break out the paper snips. For this card, I used one of two stamps from the set, stamping in chalk ink onto some of the bright, happy cardstock included in the new Spring Project Pantry kit. The patterned paper is also from the kit, as is the teeny glittered brad on the flower!

Next up, I have a cute little treat container that is perfect to nestle into an Easter basket or two. The TE store carries these darling little tins (sized for gift cards, too!) and I decorated it with a tag I created using the new set, A Tweet for You. You may remember previous sets that coordinate with the Favor Frame die, and this one is the third in the series! I put in some mini Kit-Kats that came packaged in Easter colors, and four fit just right.
