Hi Everyone
Welcome to release week from Taylored Expressions!!! I am so excited for this amazing release - every single stamp set is so cute and full of adorable whimsy! Today we are kicking off the release with a ton of new dies and brand new stamp sets! I love the sweet Spring Cottage stamp set (part of the Appledoodle collection designed by Doug Applegate). This stamp set comes with the cutest accessories to a spring cottage including a wishing well! I wanted to create a little scene so I started by stamping the cottage roof onto a cork sheet and then paper pieced it after inking the edges in some Rich Cocoa ink. I paper pieced the rest of the cottage with paper from the Lost and Found Collection from My Mind's Eye.

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Spring Cottage from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Bahama Blue and Rich Cocoa
AccessoriesCork Sheets from Taylored Expressions,  Cloud Border Die, Garden Party Blooms (set 2), button from stash, twine, MS grass punch,  dimensionals, liquid pearls and sponger

I used the cork to accent the shutters and the door and then added the sentiment onto the bottom with a button accent from my button stash. The clouds were created using the Cloud Border die and sponging with some Bahama Blue ink (Memento) and the sun was created using the Garden Party Blooms Set 2 dies from Taylored Expressions and layered with some circles punched from DP

    

It was so much fun to create this card and to make a spring scene with this adorable stamp set!!! I can't wait to see what everyone has created - please check them out here!
Thank you for stopping by!
Big hugs,
Sankari
