Taylored Expressions December Sneak Peeks: Petite - a - Palooza Day 1

Hello everyone!!! I am really excited because today is day one of the Taylored Expressions December Release!!! It's the Petite - a - Palooza....14 new petite stamp sets and they all have matching dies...Woot!!!! You are going to love each and every one because they are sooo cuuute!!!!!

My first project is a door knob hanger for my Granddaughter  Autumn...I started making  door hangers this summer. When the Grands come to visit they lay claim to their room with their own personalized door knob hanger!! 

I used the adorable new stamp set called Max and Muffin..the kitties were colored with Copics, cutout with the Max and Muffin coordinating dies and popped up on the background with foam tape. The background was created first with a square chipboard piece....the sky paper was adhered and the edges were sanded smooth. The grass was created with three different scrap pieces of paper and the Build a Scene-Rolling Hills dies..sewing was done on the tops of each piece before they were adhered.  The flowers from the new Oh Happy Day set were stamped on Choice Snow White card stock, colored with Copics, cutout with the Oh Happy Days coordinating dies and glued to the background. Pearls were added to the centers of the flowers and the clouds were cutout from Choice Snow White card stock with the Curly Clouds dies and popped up with foam tape. The Sweet and Simple Alpha - Lower and Upper were used to create Autumn's name. 

Heavy twine was tied through holes punched in the upper corners for the hanger...this is how it looks on the door. 

One of my favorite new petite sets is called Saddle Up...gotta love me some Cowgirl Boots...something a Texas girl wouldn't be caught without!!!!  The cute little boots were colored with Copics, cutout with the matching Saddle Up dies, and popped up with foam tape. The edges of the background barn wood paper were distressed and a little wonky sewing was done.  

The sentiment was stamped on the patterned paper, punched out, and adhered with foam tape. The lasso for the sentiment frame was created from twine and the Doodlebug Sprinkles finish it off. 

Now, how about a little inspiration from the Baker's Dozen Design Team!!:

Thanks for stopping by sure to come back tomorrow for more sneak peeks and the big Release will be Thursday morning at 7:00 AM PST (that's 9:00 CST)
