TE June 2017 Release Sneak Peeks Day Two – Hello Sunshine

Hello! Welcome to Day Two of the Taylored Expressions June Sneak Peeks. Today, I’m sharing two tropical-themed cards. This month’s release features a variety of products appropriate for summer projects. Products will be in the store on Thursday, June 8 @ 7 AM PST! Let’s head to the beach!

Living in the Pacific Northwest, anything having to do with sun is appealing and I’m particularly drawn towards beach scenes! My first card combines Beach Border with this month’s release Build a Scene – Tropical.

I trimmed the Beach Border to make room for the palm tree in my scene. I made sure that the hammock strung between the palms was just in front of the Sunshine Cutting Plate. I added the Little Bits – Sandcastle and Little Bits – Pail & Shovel to the foreground on which I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Trio Stamp & Die Combo set.

My second project, also tropical/beach-themed, showcases the Tropical Blooms Cutting Plate.

I cut the Tropical Blooms Cutting Plate from Sugar Cube cardstock and colored it with Distress Oxide inks using the Clarity Stencil Brushes. (I plan to re-visit a number of other Taylored Expressions Cutting Plates and color them with Distress Oxide inks as I loved the results.) I went back over some of the image with regular Distress Inks and a foam applicator to add a bit of punch. I cut the Little Bits – Flip Flops from cardstock colored with the inks. Additionally, I stamped the Tropical Trio Stamp & Die Combo sentiment on cardstock colored with the inks.
