Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Tweet Hearts

Hello again! Were you able to check out all the gorgeous sneaks yesterday featuring Take Note with it's coordinating dies? Did you not just love what you saw?! I tell ya, it took just about everything I had not to use one of the dies in today's project! But that's not the focus for today. The focus is another sneak on a bee-utiful new set illustrated by our very own uber-talented, Nancy McKinney, called Tweet Hearts!

I just adore the whimsy birds and how they are dressed up with flowers and paisley! This set is FANTASTIC quick stamping to build a gorgeous scene! And I did a LOT of stamping on this one!


I actually started with a scrap piece of patterned paper from my fave paper pad, Thrift Shop, and designed my card from there! I quickly stamped a scene and then embellished from there with a bunch of Crystal Twinkles, Multicolor Twinkles, and Bliss Pearls. And, I added a smidgen of vintage trim from my stash to that adorable bird's nest. :) Oh yeah!! I added a bit of Starfire glitter to birdie's wings for good measure. Wrapped the card up with some green seam binding into a big bow and a sugared heart and then called it (a very late night), LOL!

I hope you enjoyed my card and will venture further to see what the rest of the Dozen with Taylor and Jami have to share with you! See you back here tomorrow for the release and one final peek!!
