Happy Last Day of April! This week is Release Week for Taylored Expressions and I have a ton of fun projects to share. First up is a card featuring the soon-to-be-released Apple Doodle Ink set, All Aboard and Loads of Fun -- a darling train idea conceived by my teammate, Jen Shults! Also featured is the new Train Track Border Die, my new fave die.


For this card, I stamped and colored the engine and flatcar from All Aboard, colored them in and fussy cut around each.


I filled the flatcar with some of the sweet hearts from Loads of Fun, which comes with a ton of cute cargo for your little train, plus sentiments like the one I used here. I also die-cut the train tracks, using the negative space to let the patterned paper I used show through. My rugrat is a HUGE train fanatic and when he saw this card, he begged to keep it for himself!


My next card features the new set in the Embracing Grace line, Far Out, which is an adorable set with robots and rocket ships! Also on this card are the new Sprockets Dies, which I just love.


I stamped one of the little bots, colored him in and added some stickles on his heart. I love the sentiment, which fit inside my die-cut window. 


The Sprockets dies are so perfect for both these new sets and added the perfect amount of dimension.
