Exciting News!!!


Hello everyone!!! I hope you are having a wonderful and fabulous summer day!!!! I have some really exciting news to share with you today!!! As you know, I was  the May/June Guest Designer for Taylored Expressions and guess what!!! Taylor has asked me to join her fabulous Baker's Dozen Design team....Whoohoo!!!!! I am beyond thrilled....Taylored Expressions has always been one of my favorite stamp companies and I sooo love their stamps and dies!! I can't believe I am actually on their design team....someone pinch me please...LOL!!!! You can check out the announcement on the Taylored Expressions blog found here!!

To celebrate, I just had to make a summery card...I kinda wish I was on the beach right now!!! Stamps from three TE stamp sets were used: The ship from A Day in Paradise, the sun , sentiment, and rick rack from Garden Party Blooms, and the trees from Ride the Wave. 




The sun was stamped with Summer Sun and the ship was stamped with Night of Navy. The red stripe and the yellow part of the sale were colored with Copics. The rick rack was stamped on a scrap piece of white with Pool Party, cutout, and adhered under the ship for the waves. Then the clouds were sponged on with Bashful Blue. The Kraft sand was adhered and then the trees were stamped on with Old Olive and Chocolate Chip. The sentiment was stamped with Night of Navy and the twine and button finishes it off. 

I hope you will stop back next week because we start showing our sneak peeks on Monday and the new August Stamp Reveal will be on Thursday....I can't wait for you to see all the awesome new stamps and dies!!!!

Thanks for stopping by today....Have a great Sunday!!!!!
