Taylored Expressions June Previews: Day 2!

Hello! Welcome to Day 2 of Taylored Expressions Previews!

June Release At a Glance
  • We have sneak peeks to share Monday through Wednesday.  All of the new products will be available for purchase on Thursday, June 7th at 8 am PST. You'll find it all in the Fresh out of the Oven Department at the Taylored Expressions Store.
  • Join us as a fan on Facebook for an early peek at the stamp sets, as well as a SPECIAL Facebook GIVEAWAY, on Wednesday night beginning at approximately 6 pm PST.

Today we are introducing Bikes & Trikes and numerous Taylored Dies! Bikes & Trikes is part of the Embracing Grace line, designed by Emily Burger. It is a full size set of 20 pink rubber images/sentiments. This set was Jami Sibley's concept, and Emily took her ideas for images and sentiments and knocked it out of the park with her quirky style! I'm sure you'll find a ton of reasons and occasions to use this cute set! The Tall & Skinny Alpha Taylored Die Set coordinates with the font used here. 

It was hard to choose which image to use on my card today (because they are all TOO cute)! I chose one of the sweet bikes holding a basket of flowers. I colored the image with Copic markers and paired it with some paper from My Mind's Eye On the Sunny Side collection. My 3-D flower was created using one of the new Petal Pop Ups Dies (this one is Petal Pop Ups 2)! I one of Jen's older Deconstructed Sketches (#52) for my layout.

I finished off the inside and added my "hi" using the Tall & Skinny Alpha Dies. To make my letters a bit thicker (like chipboard), I die cut my first layer using Choice Buttercream cardstock, then I added 4 layers of die cut patterned paper on top of each letter.

These are the Taylored Dies that I used on my card today:
