Its the release day!

Its finally here! Today is the release day. All the new release Taylored Expressions products are now available at the store. I am celebrating the release with two new cards using the new products. The first one is my favourite card in the release. Its vibrant, colourful and very summery card.

I have used lots of new products on this card – the Sunshine cutting plate, Tropical Trio stamp and die combo, Little Bits: Pineapple and Build a Scene: Tropical. I used the flamingo from Tropical trio stamp and die combo. I coloured the bird using copic markers and added shimmer highlights using Wink of Stella. I die cut the leaves from Build a Scene: Tropical and the top of the pineapple from Little Bits: Pineapple using Granny Smith cardstock and the stem of the coconut tree using Oreo cardstock. My base of the card is also Oreo cardstock.

For the background, I sponged Lemon meringue, Candy Corn, Lollipop and Plum Punch TE dye inks on a Sugar Cube panel and die cut the panel using Sunshine cutting plate. I adhered this on the card base. Love the contrast. Then I clustered the leaves, coconut tree and the flamingo together and adhered on the card front as shown. The sentiment is white heat embossed on Oreo cardstock and die cut using Stitched Banner die. I then added few drops of glossy accent to the embellish.

All supplies used to make this card is listed below.

ย The second card is a slider card using Busy Beaver stamp set.

I created the sky using Cookie Monster and Blue Corn TE dye ink and the hills using Mint Julep and Peapod TE dye ink. I used Build a Scene: Rolling Hills die to die cut the hills. On the furthest hill I die cut the track for the beaver using On the Right Track: Basics die. Beaver is coloured using copic markers and die cut using the coordinating die. The beaver slides from one end of the card to the other. I stamped, copic coloured and die cut the logs and randomly adhered on the hill. One log on the beaver’s hands to look like the beaver is carrying them from here to there! ๐Ÿ™‚

The sentiment is also from Busy Beaver stamp set stamped on two strips of Lollipop cardstock and adhered using foam adhesives. I applied some shimmer on the sentiment strips. Simple but colourful and fun.

All supplies used to make this card is below.

Hope you have enjoyed all the sneak peeks and have made a list of favourites to buy. All the June release products are now available at Taylored Expressions Store.
