I am back today with two more sneak peaks to share with you. First up is Hello A la Carte. The stamp is illustrated by Nancy McKinney. 


I stamped "HELLO" with Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa and colored with Copics. I cut the sentiment out  and added a strip of DP to the bottom.

Then I cut four scalloped borders out four different papers using the Medium Scallop Border Die. I staggered the scallops. I added machine stitching, twine, and a button to finish off the card.


I also added a rhinestone the the center of the phone. My papers are My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Life of the Party

My second card features Birds of a Feather, a full sized set that includes 21 images and sentiments. The set is illustrated by Nancy McKinney as part of the Whimsical Wishes line. My card also used the Birds & Branch Taylored Die Set. I am so excited about a branch die! It can be used with the stamp, or on its own, and can be used with many other TE stamps sets.


First I stamped the bird card on my DP in Lady Bug Memento Ink. Then I stamped the branch in Memento Rich Cocoa and used the branch die to cut it out. I cut two birds from red cardstock.

I used the Medium Scallop Die for the border that goes down the side. I added a sentiment from the stamp set, ribbon, stitching, and lace.


I stamped four red flowers with one of the stamps in the set and added red rhinestones to the center of the flowers. Then I glued the birds to each side of the cage. My papers are from Cosmo Cricket Odds & Ends.





Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you'll pop around to all of the  amazing Baker's Dozen blogs and check out all of the sneak peeks with the new stamp sets! All the new products will be available tomorrow at 8 am PST and I will be back to share one more project from the new release!!
