Taylored Expressions & Doodlebug Stars & Stripes! 8-)

Hi all! Hope you've been having a Super week so far! Mine's been pretty Good, Super Busy Busy, but pretty Good too! ;-) Well I thought I'd pop in real quick today to share a couple of my latest Taylored Expressions creations! 8-)  My Fellow Baker's Dozen Teammates and I were Super Lucky to get to work with some of Doodlebugs Yummy New Lines, and boy oh boy did we have some fun with them too!! ;-)
Both of the Fun projects I'm sharing today feature papers & goodies from Doodlebug's Stars & Stripes Essentials kit! And I just love how these Sweet Doodlebug patterned papers and goodies go so Perfectly with the Fun whimsical style of Taylored Expressions stamps too! Like a match made in heaven! Love it!! ;-)
I did a little paper piecing for my my Fun 4th of July ALC's. I cut them out with the help of my Classic Ovals Large & Small Nesties sets and popped them up with a bit of foam tape. My mats and BG layers, were create with a combination of Bright White CS ,Kraft CS, my Snowcap Paint Dauber, a touch of Distressing, TE's Stars Impression PlateTE's Star Border Die & some Sweet Dp's from Doodlebug's Stars & Stripes Collection, and you can find the 6x6 version HERE in the TE Store. I finished them all up with a touch of Star Dust Stickles, some sparkly Doodlebug gems and some Pretty Red Glimmer Ribbon...;-)

Next  up, I am featuring the Darling Moka Betsy along with more Goodies from Doodlebug's Stars and Stripes Essential's kit! 8-)
I stamped my Sweet Moka Betsy with Memento Tuxedo Black & colored her up with my trusty Copics. I fussy cut her out and popped her up with a bit of foam tape onto one of the  Doodlbug Stars & Stripes CS Journal stickers. For my mats and BG layers I chose a combination of Kraft CS, and more Fun dp's from Doodlebug's Stars & Stripes Essentials kit.To finish it all up I added a Sweet TE Star Border Die cut, TE's Seeing Stars die cuts, both topped with a touch of Star Dust Stickles and a bit Doodlebug's Stars & Stripes Essentials ribbon too... 8-)
