Hey Crafty Friend! It's Day 1 of Taylored Expressions June Release Sneak Peeks

Hi Everyone! I am starting out the month of June with a new release from Taylored Expressions I am really excited about! It is full of summer inspiration including the 4th of July, a splash theme with mermaids and floaty critters, a crafty theme, and our new interactive gatefold reveal concept! All the new products will be available starting at 9am CDT Thursday, June 6th.

Let's start with a look at the new Gatefold Reveal Die and the Better Half Cutting Plates. To create my card I cut a piece of 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" cardstock for card base and then scored at at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8".  Fold the ends of card to the middle. Next I cut the Better Half Cutting Plates from Sugar Cube Cardstock and added the dot pattern from the Black and White Playful Patterns Paper Pack behind the die cuts. Then I attached the panels to the front of the card. 

I cut a strip of vellum to fit around the card to hold it shut and added the sentiment. The sentiment if from the new Crafty Friend Stamp Set. I stamped in Versamark Ink and embossed with White Embossing Powder. I added the cup of paint brushed with the new Do Something Creative Stamp Set. The sentiment is die cut with Stitched Circle Stacklets and matted with the Petite Scallop Circle Stacklets. 

Here a look at what the card looks like when you open it. The new Gatefold Reveal Die makes putting this together so easy! So perfect for all your crafty friends!! 

Continuing with the crafty theme, my next card is created with the Do Something Creative Stamp Set and Do Something Creative Dies. I colored the images with Copic Markers and added some highlights and patterns with a White Gel Pen. 

Behind the desk I added a striped wallpaper with the Striped Background Die and I added the woodgrain to the desk with the Woodgrain Background Stamp and Sea Salt Ink. So cute!
