Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 2

It's Day 2 of Sneak Peeks at Taylored Expressions and today I have to show you a couple of projects using the Tweet Hearts set.  This set was designed by Nancy McKinney and inspired by the Paisley Parade patterned paper that we used in our July Key Ingredients.  What's great about this set is with the bold images, there is no need to color!   I used the three circle images in the set along with a "stem" for a birdbath to create this tree.  I also used one of the same circles to create the sun.

The second project I have to show you also incorporates the die I used yesterday that coordinates with the Take Note set.  These exclusive dies are made from American steel, manufactured in the U.S., and work in nearly every major die cutting machine on the market including the Big Shot by Sizzix and the Cuttlebug by Provo Craft.  I stamped a couple of the bird images along with the branch before cutting the image with the die. 
I added some Taylor's Tiny Twinkles along the background piece and used two black Tiny Twinkles for the bird eyes.  I hand cut the black layer around the die cut piece.
You don't want to miss what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has to show you using the Tweet Hearts set!

Wow you are really thinking out of the box! Love that tree and sun! It's funny - I was looking at that birdbath base wondering what else I might be able to do with it, but moved on without using it. LOVE your tree idea! And it's great to see the Take Note Die and how it fits with this set!

You've worked your magic again, Charmaine. A tree--I didn't think of that. ;) Love the second card too--you've arranged the images beautifully in the label die.
