You're a Hoot!

Good Morning!
Taylored Expressions is Branching Out in More Ways Than One!!!
**Brand New line of stamps - Whimsical Wishes!
**Branching Out and Branching Out Coordinates - two adorable new sets to kick off the new Whimsical Wishes line!
**The TE Giving Tree - Taylored Expressions will be donating the proceeds from sales of these two new sets to a wonderful charity - Eden Projects. There will be new stamp sets introduced quarterly for this on-going charitable program.
Today's images were designed by Nancy McKinney...aren't they fabulous?!
Stop by Taylor's blog to read up on all the details!
I had so much fun creating this card! You know I ♥love♥ layers and Pacific Point has become a favourite of mine. So when I saw the adorable owl image in the Branching Out Coordinates set I knew immediately the Good Morning DP from Stampin' Up would work wonderfully!
I stamped the branch on TE Choice White Cardstock with Memento Rich Cocoa and coloured with some copic markers. The owl was stamped, cut out and popped up on a glue dot. It's hard to tell in the picture but I used my stardust gelly pen to accent his eyes.
Stamps: Branch Out and Branching Out Coordinates; Cardstock: TE Choice Bright White, Pacific Point, Choc Chip and Good Morning DP; Inks: Memento Rich Cocoa; Accessories: Copics, Word Window Punch, Oval Punch, Curly Punch, Choc Brads, Choc Ribbon, Pacific Point Ribbon, Eyelet Border Punch, Oval Nesties, Stardust Pen, Dimensionals
This is going to be a fun 6 months on the Baker's Dozen DT! I totally love the TE stamps! The rubber is deeply etched and you always get a perfect image....first time! The cute pink colour doesn't hurt either ;) They clean up super easy and look brand new!
My collection has grown over the past year and I'm happy that I am now using the Binder Boxes to keep my stamps safe and dust free! Since I'm in the basement I have always worried about stamps that aren't protected from the elements. I love that I can label which stamps are in the boxes and find them much quicker.
Now stop by all the other Baker's Dozen blogs to see what fabulous creations they have baked up!
Thanks for stopping by today...be sure to come back tomorrow for another sneak peek!
