Welcome to Day 2 of the Taylored Expressions September Sneak Peeks.  TE has a new stamp set coming out that I am particularly excited about it.  It’s called C’mon Get Happy.  I don’t know about you, but I love making cards just for the fun of doing it.  I especially love scene building.  But often, when I am almost done, I struggle to find the right sentiment.  I often want something generic, like “thinking of you” or “just because”, or “sending you smiles” and that’s where this set comes in.  It’s a bunch of simple, happy sentiments both large and small to finish off just about any card!

Today I have two similar cards to share with you.  I’ll tell you why they are so similar, after you take a look.  First is the card I set out to make.

This card features the new Build-a-Scene Trees.  As soon as I got these dies, I knew I wanted to create some pink trees!  Happy, right?  Hard to see in the photo, but the sentiment was stamped in black pigment ink and heat embossed with kaleidoscope embossing powder for a softer sparkly look.

Here’s my second sample.

This time I paired the sentiment with the new Little Bits – Ice Cream Sundae die and added one of the banners from Skinny Mini Party Borders die set.

So why are these cards so similar?  Well, I started off to execute my vision for the first card, but before I got the trees adhered I somehow managed to smudge black ink along that bottom white portion of the main panel.  Have you ever done that?  I was so sad, but I started over.  When I was done with the tree card, I decided there had to be a way to save my first attempt.  I sliced that bottom portion off and away I went!  The lesson here:  don’t be too quick to give up and throw something in the trash!
