Taylored Expressions June Sneak Peeks: Big Kahuna and Sun & Clouds dies

Hi Everyone!!

Welcome to the June Release from Taylored Expressions!! This month's release is HUGE - seriously full of SO many amazing stamp sets and dies (that both coordinate and can be mix and matched)! 

To kick off the celebrations and summer - I created this card using the new to be released stamp set: Big Kahuna that comes with Big Kahuna dies which makes cutting the palm trees in this stamp set a total cinch!

I love this super sweet ride and colored it in with red and yellow inks with a wood border for the car - I added the sentiment "relax" onto the surfboard on top of the wagon:


Here is another view of the card from on top - I love the Build A Scene: Swirly Clouds die mixed with the Cloud Border die to create the clouds. For the waves, I used the Wave Border die with scrap DP to create the ocean look. I tore some paper for the sand and then added some twine and popped up the wagon and trees that I had colored with some dimensionals:
Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Big Kahuna by Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Ladybug Red, Tuxedo Black, Distress Broken Glass
Paper: Taylored Expressions Choice Buttercream and Snow White
Accessories: Big Kahuna dies, Wave border die, Clouds border dies, Build A Scene dies: Swirly Clouds, copics, twine, corner rounder, white gel pen, circle punch and white foam dimensionals

I love how this card turned out! Taylor is also releasing some total cute Sun & Clouds dies that will make creating a sky super simple! In this card, I paired the Sun and Clouds dies with the soon to be released stamp set: Hippo Birdy from Taylored Expressions. One of our family friends is having a baby this month - and I thought I would create a Welcome Baby card using these dies and stamp set to create a little scene:
I absolutely LOVE these cute animals - and created a scene for the Sun & Clouds stamp set by having hills for the animals to stand on using the Build A Scene: Rolling Hills dies. I inked the bottom of the clouds from these dies (the clouds come in two sizes) and then popped them around the sky. I love the sun die - it comes in two pieces so I ran it through two different colors of yellow cardstock and popped them together with some dimensionals:

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Hippo Birdy and Big Kahuna (palm trees) stamp set by Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Pear Tart and Tuxedo Black
