TE Release Day: Showcasing It's a Banner Day 2

Hiya Crafty Peeps!

After three days of sneak peeks all of the fabulous stamps, dies and Spring Project Pantry Kit that are now available for purchase from Taylored Expressions. You can see all of the new items in the Fresh Out of the Oven category in the store. :) But stick around for a few more minutes and scroll down to check out another sample I made with a couple of the sets!

For my latest sample I used the half-shell chicks from Hello Spring and a banner image from It's A Banner Day 2 to create my card. No carrot car yet... but soon. ;) I made a little scene with the chicks and colored with Copic markers. I applied a liberal coating of Crackle Accents to the shells and let it dry to crackly goodness. For the sentiment I first stamped a banner image in Tangerine Tango on Choice Snow White cardstock and then stamped a sentiment from Hello Spring over it. I then cut it out with the matching Banner Day 2 die.

I used some of the fabulous Stella Rose - Mabel designer paper and matted on Early Espresso cardstock and stitched the edges with my sewing machine. I added a couple of pieces of cardstock but with the Medium Scallop border die. A little ribbon and a few glitter brads finished the look. Me likey!
