August TE Sneak Peek - Day 2


Happy Thursday Lovebugs!!

I'm back today sharing the newest stamp set in the Taylored Expressions family! Tweet Hearts is another stunning set illustrated by the equally stunning Nancy McKinney

Many of you got to play with this adorable stamp set in the TE Booth at CHA this past weekend, and weren't those make-n-takes super fun and so very bright??  Well for my card today I decided to go over to the "dark side" with my stamps:

How stinkin' grungy and cute is this???  I think it's absolutely cool that the stamps in this set are equally cute in bright colors as they are completely distressed!!

All of the cardstock and patterned paper I used is from my Pet's Place Project Pantry Kit.  I stamped my bird and leaves and mounted them onto my image panel using glue dots and small foam squares.  See that fun flower border directly underneath my sentiment?? That's one of the fabulous border stamps from the set!!  yummy!!  I finished up my card with some stitching and in my dreamland attempt to take a page out of the lovely Sankari's book, I added some Espresso Adirondack Dimensional Pearls onto the branch and the border and some in Butterscotch, for little highlights.  I then realized my little bird needed a fun little sparkle in her eye, so I added an amber-colored rhinestone from Taylor's Tiny Twinkles -  I must say I'm so much happier now that it's sooo easy to get my bling on using my Embellie Gellie!!

I am sure you're ready for some more peeks at this fun new Tweet Hearts stamp set, so head on over to check out the fabulous creations made by these lovely ladies:
