June Stamp of the Month from Taylored Expressions

Hi Everyone,
Taylored Expressions has created an exciting new item - the Stamp of the Month Club - where every month you can receive a special stamp set and can also get the Key Ingredients kit that will coordinate with it (or you can just get the KI kit or just the Stamp of the Month - sooo many options!!) Seems like it is a way to create cards that are "taylor" made to perfection!  Check out the Taylored Expressions Deluxe Subscription kit (where you can get the KI kit and the Stamp of the Month) for June here:

I love the super cute images of the little galoshes and the umbrella and the dies that coordinate are awesome!!! They cut out the individual panels of the umbrella which makes paper piecing so easy and so much fun! For my card today, I had to use the sentiment: "You make me happy when skies are gray" - because this was the lyrics of one of my most favorite songs ever growing up ("you are my sunshine, my only sunshine...etc) I created the clouds using the Ride the Wave Border die and angled it around the circular panel and then created a sun using the Pinking Circles Stacklets dies
I drew out a little puddle and cut/colored it out and then set the galosh that I paper pieced on it with a little bit of the side of the boot shaded with gray copics. And for a bit of fun, I added some blue blinged raindrops and some bling on the "clouds":

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: You Make Me Happy Stamp Set: June 2013 Stamp of the Month from Taylored Expressions
Paper: Vintage Bliss DP from Simple Stories, cardstock and ribbon from the June Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Teal Zeal
Accessories: Rainy Days, Pinking Shears dies, Ride the Wave Border, circle nestabilities, corner chomper, bling, dimensionals, and copics 

 It was so much fun to create this card with this adorable stamp set and this fun KI kit! I can't wait to see what all the amazing designers have created with this beautiful deluxe kit - please hop along with me and check them out!!
