TE December Petite-a-Palooza Embracing Grace

Good morning, friends!  We're continuing our fabulous Release Party and ALL of the new Taylored Expressions products are now available in the Fresh Out of the Oven Department.  AND be sure to check the TE Current Specials page!

Today I'm showing off a super cute little set called Splish Splash.  Emily Burger has illustrated an adorable set for the Embracing Grace line, and this one comes with coordinating dies to cut out the fun bird bath and smaller birdie - so cute!

I've been having a great time making clean and simple cards and so I thought this set was perfect for creating a fun little scene.  I stamped the little love birds in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Choice Snow White card stock first, and then started to layer the scene around them.  I paper pieced the yellow bird after coloring all of the image in with Copic Markers and then added the cut out bird bath for a little dimension.  I added 4 layers of Grass and then popped the whole layer of the card up with Foam Tape

The rest of the Baker's Dozen have amazing projects for you to see this morning, so be sure to hop on over and see:
And you can find these fun items waiting for you in the TE Store -
