Hello everyone and welcome to day two of the Taylored Expressions June Sneak Peeks!!! I have a couple of Summer fun in the sun cards for you today featuring some super cute new stamps and dies but first I want to remind you that the TE June release is Thursday, June 9, at 7:00 AM PST (9:00 CST). Also...
Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the TE Blog to answer Taylor's Question of the Day for a chance to win a prize from the latest release!
My first card feathres the super cute On the Road - Surf Bus...I just had to pair it with the adorable Little Bits - Flamingo and Little Bits - Adirondack Chair to create a beachy scene. Cookie Monster, Sugar Cube, Salt Water Taffy, Pumpkin, and Oreo cardstocks were used to create the bus, Strawberry Milkshake was used for the flamingos, and Sugar Cube was used for the chairs.
The water was created with the previously released Lakeside Border die, Salt Water Taffy and Sprinkles cardstock. The *sandy beach* was created with Toffee cardstock...it was torn, distressed, and brushed with white craft ink. To finish it off, the sentiment from the previously released Critter Correspondence stamp set was stamped with Versamaek and embossed with white opaque embossing powder.

My second card was so fun to make...I just love the cute little Grumplings!! The little bear in the hot pink bikini is from the Summer Grumplings set...she was colored with Copics and popped up on the previously released Picture Perfect - Sunny Days diecut. It was cut out of Potato Chip cardstock and the *sun* was cutout of Lemon Meringue cardstock with the previously released Stitched Circle Stacklet.
The Banner Stacklets 4 diecut of Salt Water Taffy was used in the background and the Happy Summer Banner was cut out of Lollipop cardstock. The sentiment from the Summer Grumplings set was stamped with TE's Oreo Ink and the Cookie Monster *water* was cut with the previously released Lakeside Border.
