Taylored Expressions - July Key Ingredients & SOTM Blog Hop Day 1

Hi Everyone!

Hope your summer has been sweet and wonderful! 

Today the ladies from the Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Design Team and the Baker's Dozen Team are coming together to show projects from the newest Key Ingredients Kit for July ALONG with a coordinating Stamp of the Month - which this month is called: Cute Hoot!! 

This is such an absolutely adorable stamp set!! I love the owls in the stamp set, but today, I chose to use the beautiful flower and coordinating leaves with the sweet tag sentiments: "Happy Birthday" and "Hugs & Kisses"
Card Ingredients:
Stamp set: Cute Hoot (stamp of the month for July 2013) from Taylored Expressions
Papers: July Key Ingredients Kit from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Dandelion, Canteloupe, Bahama Sky, Sky Blue, Rose Red, Bamboo Leaves (see image links below)
Accessories: Best Glue Ever, Burlap Twine - Ivory, corner chomper, Bookmark Die, Cloud Border die, Scallop Eyelet die, foam dimensioanls

I sponged the clouds using the Cloud Border die and then created some grass with a MS grass punch and then cut the sky and earth out with the Bookmark Die. To this I then added the flower image (which is a closed stamp so it is so easy to already get a colored image) with two colors of yellow. And then I added a stem and leaves in the same way - giving them some dimension by popping it with some foam dimensionals. This is such a sweet stamp set - and I absolutely LOVE these papers - so much fun - and the best part is that it comes with coordinating card stock and ribbon! Makes it so easy to get ready to create!!!

Speaking of which, I can't wait to see what the rest of the girls have created with this Key Ingredients kit and the stamp of the month (SOTM) from July!!! Please hop with me and check them out:

I love the way you used the cloud border die, makes a lovely sky. I'm glad to see you used the flower as your focal image. Also your use of the bookmark die. Lovely.
