Taylored Expressions June Sneak Peek: Ride the Wave and Graphic Greetings - Patriotic


Hello everyone and welcome to Day 1 of  Taylored Expressions June Sneak Peeks!!!! The June release is absolutely fabulous and I can't wait to tell you about my samples!!! As you know  I have lots of men and boys in my family so I was really drawn to the Ride the Wave set....it's perfect for masculine cards and the Ray of Sunshine Cutting Plate adds such a fun and awesome detailed background!!!! The surfer was stamped with Basic Gray onto the Pool Party die cut and the Ray of Sunshine Cutting Plate was cut out of  Basic Gray and layered over the patterned paper in the background. The cute little surfboards were stamped onto white card stock with Pool Party ink and the sentiments were stamped with Basic Gray. Basic Gray matting was used behind the surfboards and surfer image and the Baker's Twine finishes it off.


My next card was made with the Graphic Greetings - Patriotic stamp and the Patriotic Project Pantry 




The Basic Recipe Kit includes the following coordinating supplies:
Doodlebug Stars & Stripes 6x6 Paper Pad (24 double-sided sheets)
8 sheets of 8.5" x 11" cardstock (2 sheets each of 4 different colors)
5 yards of ribbon (1 yard each of 5 different styles)

The Graphic Greetings - Patriotic stamp was stamped with Brilliant Blue and sewing was done around the edges. The stars were punched out of the red card stock in the project pantry kit, the holes were made with the piercing tool, and twine was laced through the holes. The banner was made with twine and the Doodlebug papers.

Tomorrow will be Day 2 of the Sneak Peeks and then the June release will be Thursday morning, June 6th at 8 am PST.   

Now, are you ready to see more sneak peeks from the Baker's Dozen Design Team?? Check it out!!


Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!!!!

I'm loving your cards, Joan, the surfer card is so refreshing in aqua and black and using the surf boards for your sentiment was ingenious! I'll definitely keep that little trick in mind. :) Love the layout of your GG card too, the banner is so sweet! Hope you're having a great day, hugs!
