Taylored Expressions June Sneak Peeks: Big Bold Summer and Beach Ball

Hello everyone and welcome to day one of the Taylored Expressions June Sneak Peeks...this month we have a huge release with so many wonderful stamp sets and dies...wait till you see all the goodies!!!! The June release goes live Thursday morning at 7:00 AM PST!! Now....on with the show!!!

Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the TE Blog each Sneak Peek Day this week for details on how you can enter to win. 

My first card features the Salt is in the Air stamp from the new Big Bold Summer set. It was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa on the brayered sky. The sand was brayered with Crumb Cake and the palms, chair, and sand castle were all stamped with the rich cocoa. 

The palms and sand castle were colored with Copics.... the Little Bits- Sun and Beach Umbrella were paper pieced as was the chair. The Little Bits Clouds finish it off. 

The cute Little Bits Beach Ball die was featured in my next project..... I decided to show how it could be used for something besides a beachy scene.  

The elephant and lion from the new Taylored Expressions Hippo Birdy set were all paper pieced with papers from Bundle of Joy Dots and Stripes 6x6 paper pad and Cupids Arrow 6x6 paper pad.

The beach balls were all diecut from patterned paper using the Little Bits Beach Ball dies and then popped up on foam dots. 

The monkey was colored with Copics and the card base was made with the Taylored Expressions Bracket Notecard die....the twine finishes it off. 

Now, Are you ready to see what the Baker's Dozen Designers have created for you today?? Check it out!!!
