Guess what?! Today the Baker's Dozen of Taylored Expressions start their sneak peeks from this month's new releases and I am so in love with all the amazing and awesome stamp sets and awesome dies and impression plates! On today's Menu: we are sneaking peeks of the full size stamp set: A Day In Paradise and will continue the Moka series with Moka Lani and two stamp sets with the sweet little penguins with the Beach Belle and Surf's Up stamp set.


 I love the new dies that Taylor is releasing - one of them that  we are sneaking peeks of today is the new Wave Border die which is perfect for summertime cards!


The stamp set A Day in Paradise is simply pure summer magic - all of the stamp sets are so nostalgic of summer at the beach house - where all one does is just lounge by the beach all day in the warmth of the summer sun. This gorgeous stamp set (full sized set with 21 stamps) is illustrated by the sweet Nancy McKinney and is perfect for retirement cards, summer cards, vintagey cards, and just because cards (and everything in between). I love this sailboat image in this stamp set and wanted to create this card for my DH who loves to sail - I embossed the sailboat image and then sponged with a gradation of yellows and oranges after cutting it out with an oval nestiies and then paired it with the papers from the Splash 6x6 pad from EP. I layered a few pieces of different shades of blue cut with the wave border die and layered that at the bottom of the image and then used the Clouds Duo die to cut some clouds out of felt that I then layered on the sailboat image.

Card Ingredients:
Paper:Splash 6x6 pad from EP, Bazzill
Stamps: A Day in Paradise from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Danube and Paris Dush
Accessories: wave borderoval spellbinders, liquid pearls, twine, tags, Clouds duo die from Taylored Expressions, dimensionals and felt.

The second card uses the new Palm Tree Die to coordinate with the palm tree stamp in the Hangin' Out by the Beach stamp set.



I love all the Hangin' Out stamp sets - and the Hangin' Out by the Beach stamp set has a wonderful palm tree that is so cute - but can be hard to cut out (and trust me, I LOVE to cut things out!) so - it is so delightful to have a die that coordinates with this stamp set and can easily cut out the inner corners of the palm trees with precision in one roll of a die cut machine! I used this stamp set with the Palm Tree die with the papers from Lime Twist from My Mind's Eye. 

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Splash, Bazzil, SnowWhite Choice cardstock and EP
StampsHangin' Out by the Beach
Taylored Dies: Palm Tree die, wave border
Accessories: clear tear drops, baker's twine, dimensionals, wonky and circle nestabilities, liquid pearls, circle punch and dimensionals.


I love making summer time cards - and it is so easy with all of these gorgeous stamps that are going to be peeked today - and the wave border die and palm tree die makes it even easier to create a fun summertime border or accent! Please hop over to see all the summertime magic that the girls have created today:




And please hop back tomorrow for more sweet fun :)
Thanks so much for stopping by today,
Hugs,
Sankari :)

Oooh... so pretty, Sankari! I love the layers of waves and the felt clouds on your first card! And of course the Hangin' Out card is fabulous with the double palm tree! I know you love to cut, cut, cut, but isn't that palm tree die a lifesaver!? ;)
