Taylored Expressions Release Day!

Hi there!!!  It's finally release day at Taylored Expressions!!  Woohoo!!   I have one more sample to show you using the adorable new set, Tweet Hearts!!


There are two stamps in the Tweet Hearts set that when combined make a bird bath, but I also thought they would make a a cute little mushroom.....so I went with it!  It's not very often that I get creative with my stamps, I use stamps as they were intended to be used, but occasionally my mind plays tricks on me!  LOL!

I stamped the mushroom caps and stems in three different colors, cut them out and adhered them together.  I then made some "grassy hills" with some Echo Park Summertime DP (from the Summertime Project Pantry Kit) and added some maching stitching to make each layer stand out a bit.  The cloud dp is also from the Echo Park Summertime line but it came from my LSS.  The sun is from Garden Party Blooms.  The sentiment is from Tweet Hearts and was punched out with a circle punch.  The sun needed a little something after I adhered the sentiment so I went a little crazy with the adhesive rhinestones, but I LOVE the way it looks!!  I also added some Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to the mushrooms and little bird to continue the sparkle!  A little machine stitching and ribbon finish it off!

Everything you've seen from the Baker's Dozen Sneak peeks is now available for purchase in the TE Store!

Super Fun and Cute! So glad you thought of using the Birdbath as a mushroom (that's what I was thinking it was until someone used it as a birdbath) How fun you can do either.
