Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks: Day 2!

Hi everyone!! Happy Thursday!! Today is the second day of sneak peeks for the AMAZING new release from Taylored Expressions! Are you as excited as I am?

Today, the Baker's Dozen are sharing a totally tweet (lol!) set with you, Tweet Hearts!!! This set is SO totally adorable and I can't wait for you to see all of the darling images and sweet sentiments!!

For my card, I started with one of the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenges, TESC121. You can see ALL of Taylor's Sketches on her blog HERE...I find them to be such a resource!

I started this card by stamping the branch from Tweet Hearts in Memento Rich Cocoa onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock. I then stamped the birds, leaves and hearts, all from Tweet Hearts, to create the scene. I then cut out and embossed the panel with Circle Nestabilities.

ALL the patterned paper and cardstock on my card is from the Summertime Project Pantry Kit from Taylored Expressions which was released in July! They are still available so grab it while you can! I LOVE this Project Pantry Kit and the patterned paper...Echo Park Summertime Collection.

I sewed each layer on my sewing machine and added some Vanilla brads from my stash in opposite corners. I couldn't resist reaching for the AMAZING new Take Note Frame 3 Taylored Die again for this card, and I used it very simply...I stamped my sentiment, "I {heart} You" from Tweet Hearts, cut it out with the die and attached it so it just peeks out of the vertical panel on the sketch. Easy peasy and I think it gives it such a pop!! Have you seen just how these new dies work? Taylor has a FABULOUS video on her blog HERE...they really are foolproof!
