TE July Release Party Continues!


Hi Everyone!

Today is the final day of peeks from the already in the stores July Release from Taylored Expressions!!! Come join the party!  You'll find tasty little morsels of inspiration presented by the Baker's Dozen featuring everything that is Fresh Out of the Oven from Taylored Expressions! All of the stamps are made of high quality red rubber which allows for perfect stamping each time! If you need a way to store all of your new TE stamps - don't forget to pick up a Mini Binderbox from the store - my tiny tiny craft corner is so much more organized because of these little binders :)

My project today uses the absolutely adorable underwater creations illustrated by the awesome Nancy McKinney and is called Under the Sea and is FULL (I mean full!) of super cute sentiments, punny sentiments and adorable combinations of the two along with all the sets and dies that were released this week are perfect for every occasion all year long!!!

I wanted to create something with this cute little whale - isn't she so happy looking (my daughter decided it was a she :) Since she was a "she", I decided to paper piece her with some fun papers from Paradise Beach paper collection (6x6 paper pads) from Echo Park. I created some waves for her to frolic in (added some chunky glitter to them so they could glisten in the sun). I die cut some clouds (Cloud Duo die) and used the Keeping Tabs Die to add a little ribbon at the top.

Using the Clouds Border die I created some sunny clouds with some sponging and punched out a little sun along with three little vellum hearts coming out of the whale: Here is a closer look at the three hearts (its a bit hard to see in the first picture). I also added a little glaze to the whale along with some glitter to the cloud:
