Taylored Felt!

Hello! Taylored Expressions has gotten in several new colors of wool felt and they are fabulous!!!  

I made a pretty little card today using some of the gorgeous new Caribbean and Dark Berry colors. I cut the flowers out using the Summer Lovin' Dies and stitched on some buttons for the centers. The leaves were cut out of Split Pea felt using a Branches, Banner, & Bloom Die and the butterfly out of Sunflower felt using an In Flight Overlays Die.  

I also used the Circles Cutting Plate for the background and a Banner Stacklets 1 Die for the sentiment which comes from the Wispy Wishes stamp set.  Here is a close up:

The dp is Echo Park Spendid Sunshine and the layout is the Deconstructed Sketch #159.

That's it for me today!  We are heading out on vacation this afternoon and I am so looking forward to hanging out in the Smoky Mountains for a week:) Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Taylored Expressions Die Focus: Wave Border!

Hello!  I wanted to share a fun tag I made using the adorable Taylored Expressions stamp set Showered with Love with Coordinating Dies along with the fabulous Wave Border Die!

My tag base was cut using Tag Stacklets 2 and I also used a Tag Reinforcements Die. I positioned my whale and the Wave Border for placement before stamping the water spout.  I then embossed the white tag with the CB Seeing Spots EF and adhered my whale and border.  The cloud was cut with a Build a Scene Swirly Clouds Die and the sentiment was stamped onto a Banner Stacklets 1 Die.  I matted it over a larger tag, added the ribbon to the top and it was complete!  This will be so perfect to tie to a get well soon package:)

That's it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a terrific Tuesday!
