Hello! Happy Thursday! Welcome to Taylored Expressions July Release Day! All of the new Taylored Expressions products are now available in the Fresh Out of the Oven Department.
I have a couple of projects to show you today. The first is a card using Coconut Cove. It is part of the Apple Doodle Ink line, designed by Doug Applegate and concepted by our DT coordinator, Jami Sibley! Doug's Adorable Abode #7 is where I'd love to spend my summer!
I tried my hand at water coloring the image with Tim Holtz Distress markers and a waterbrush pen. I stamped the image onto Choice Watercolor cardstock, then I colored (please go easy on me as this was my first attempt at watercoloring)!
These are the Taylored Dies that I used on my card above:
Next is a card that I made using Adventure Land, a full set that was also illustrated by Doug Applegate. This fun set was concepted by Sankari! It will have you wanting to run to the nearest fair or amusement park!
I stamped and colored the bumper cars and also used the sentiment, "So glad we bumped into each other"... :) I used some paper from the My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Dilly Dally collection, which was perfect with the ticket patterned papers. I toned down the main layer a bit by adding some cream vellum over a portion of it. The two stars are from the Shaped Buckle Die (I added a button in the center instead of making them buckles).
This is the Taylored Die that I used on my card above:
I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #161 for my layout:
Please visit the rest of the Baker's Dozen to see what they have cooked up for you today!
