Don't Worry Be Happy - Taylored Expressions June Sneak Peeks Day 1

Hi and welcome to Day 1 of Taylored Expressions June Release Sneak Peeks. The June Release is all about summer, two new colors of cardstock and ink, and I am excited to share the Liquid Watercolors being added to the TE line of products.

My first card features the new Do the Hula Stamp and Die Combo.

To create the background I used the new Here Comes the Sun Stencil with Potato Chip and Pineapple Ink, one of the new colors being release this month. At the bottom I added a hill of sand with the Building a Scene - Rolling Hills Die and waves with the Build a Scene - Rolling Waves Die. I cut the waves from Watercolor Paper add a color wash with the new Cookie Monster and Blue Corn Liquid Watercolor.

The sentiment is included in the Do the Hula Stamp and Die Combo. The Hula Girl is colored with Copic Makers and I attached the grass skirt with foam tape. The crab is cut with the Little Bits - Crustaceans. The final touch is a Lemon Meringue Enamel Shape in the center of the sun and a few Snow Flurries Sequins. 

My second card features the Aloha Script Die and Aloha Script Backer. I cut the word Aloha from the new  Blue Raspberry Cardstock and used the Aloha Script Backer from Sweet Mint Felt. I used the new Set the Scene - Cloud Stencil with Sprinkles and Blue Raspberry ink to create the background sky.

The tree is cut with the Build A Scene - Tropical, the flowers from the new Tropical Florals and Tropical Floral Dies. I also die cut the Little Bits - Sunglasses and Pineapple. I added a detail to the sand with Copic Markers. The pattern paper is from the new Hello Sunshine Paper Pack.

  1. Both of these bright, fab cards scream hot summer sun, far away islands and fun, the sun mask is brilliant I must invest in that x
