Happy Friday everyone!! I am so excited because school is out for the summer!! Just to not do all the back and forth driving is something that I am looking forward to enjoying the slower pace of life :) Yesterday was the June Release of all the new dies and stamps from Taylored Expressions and today we are doing a fun spotlight hop!!
For my project, I created a card using the totally cool Ride the Wave stamp set with the Ride the Wave Border die! This is such a fun stamp set - great for creating masculine cards or just fun summery cards :) I stamped the surfers with some fun colors and then stamped them onto some graph paper from the Vintage Bliss collection from Fancy Pants. I didn't add any sentiment but used one of the elements from the DP - the "Be Happy" card for kind of a sentiment:
I crumpled up the images and then rounded up the corners and sponged them a little bit and distressed the edges. I also added a little bit of bling to the wave borders:
I created the sun by using the Sunshine Cutting Plate and die cutting it twice and then layering the suns on top of each other and then "trimming" the sun down a little and then adding a button with twine to the middle to create a fun sun :)
