Hi Everyone!

This week begins the start of sneak peeks over at Taylored Expressions and each day there will be some super fun cute peeks from the July Taylored Expression stamps that will be released this Friday at 8am PST! Today's peeks are so super cute - I simply adore both of these fun and awesome stamps - and the perfectly coordinated dies!

The first stamp set that we are peeking is called: In the Clouds - which is a full size stamped set (25 images/sentiments) that is illustrated by the awesome Nancy McKinney. I simply adore how fun these cute cute blimps are and how awesome the sentiments are! These sentiments also coordinate with the It's a Banner Day 1 and It's a Banner Day 3 stamp set - so there are so many possibilities with the sentiments. I absolutely love the Clouds Border Die - it is so perfect to create a fluffy cloudy border or use as a sponging template. I used mine for a border and sponged the edges and added a wee bit of stickles to them for a bit of cloud dazzle :) 






I also loved using the Blimps and Banners Taylored Dies (set of 4 dies) which coordinates perfectly with the stamps and sentiments in this super cute stamp set! After stamping and coloring my blimps (blimps come in both stamps that can be colored in and can be inked solid) and then adhered them onto the blimps. I also did the mirror technique to create the bottom part of the blimp for one of the blimps. Here is another view of the card looking down onto it: 



Card Ingredients:
Stamps: In the Clouds from Taylored Expressions
Paper: MME 6x6 Lime Twist: Fly a Kite
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Bamboo Leaves, Bahama Blue and Ladybug Red
Accessories: twine, dimensionals, Spellbinders labels 20 and pennant dies, bling from stash


The second super cute stamp set that we are sneak peeking today is the full sized stamp set  Life is a Circus stamp set (17 images) which was illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink Line. Can I just say a HUGE OMGoodness "how cute!" - I adore the super cute images in this stamp set and I absolutely ADORE all the cute animals and sentiments and images! The sentiments are so awesome for both adults and children - soooo super cute! I had so much making this card - I just adore adore the elephants and cute lion and so I thought it would be fun to pile them up and create a little tent-ish card :) Just seeing the elephant balancing his buddies on one little ball SO makes me smile :) and I adore the Seeing Stars Taylored Dies (set of 3) that coordinates perfectly with this set and is perfect for so many other stamp sets! I used it to create the little ball for the cute Ellie and the top of the tent - the flaps of which I created with the EK success scallop border die and lined with some liquid pearls. 



Here is a closer peek at this stamp set - I adored coloring these cute images with my copics and some how started grinning from ear to ear by the time I was done - I just adore these guys!
