Taylored Expressions January Spotlights: Oh What a Holiday and Bless Your Nest!

Hello!  Today I get to share a few projects that I made with two of the new stamp sets from Taylored Expressions called Oh What a Holiday and Bless Your Nest!  I'm sure you can guess which one is up first:) 

 I had a BLAST making all these fun notecards using the new 3x3 Tuck and Close Notecard Die and this super CUTE Oh What a Holiday stamp set!!!  Here is a close up of each card:

I also made a little box to fit them all in:)  I decorated the top with some Authentique Lively dp and one of the new Designer Mini Tags stamped with a sentiment from the Taylored Expressions set Happy Trails!  The ribbon is from the Love Letters Project Pantry Kit!

I thought this would be a nice gift to have on hand:)  Next up is the darling set Bless Your Nest along with the coordinating Bless Your Nest Dies!

I just love this gorgeous tree branch that comes with the set, and the two birdies are so sweet!  There are also several nests that you can use, but I chose to use the nest die, cut it in half, and layer the two halves on top of each other.  Perfect! 

I nestled the little bird that I cut with the die inside and added one of the 5 beautiful sentiments that come with the set.  Isn't that font awesome!  Here's a close up:

The border was cut with the gorgeous Lace Chain Border Die and I added some pearls and stitching.  The layout is MFTWSC104.
