You wonderful thing!

Hello Crafty Friends – It is Release Day at Taylored Expressions and I’m back to share a couple of samples using the second a la carte image that I illustrated: You Wonderful Thing.


My first project is a tag featuring a bunch of my favorite things: funky bird image, sequins, a wood tag, washi tape, chit chat stickers, and baker’s twine. I stamped the image two times, die cutting the first image with a circle die and trimming the bird from the second image. Both images were colored with Copic markers and then the second bird was added with dimensionals. I used a white pen to add some freckles to the bird’s cheek.


I also decorated the back of the tag. First I covered the back with designer paper and then stamped the matching sentiment from the set. I added more washi tape, sequins, and a chit chat sticker. There are also a couple of small enamel dots.

I plan on making a couple more of these tags when I have time. I think they will be perfect on a small gift package.


For my second project I used the same set to make a quick card.


Once again I colored with Copic markers, but for a bit more pizazz I added Glossy Accents to the bird.


Hope you enjoyed my samples today – would love to hear what you think of the new stamps!
