Taylored Expressions June Release: Big Bold Summer

Hello! Welcome to Taylored Expressions June Release Day! This release is HUGE!!! We are releasing 13 new stamp sets, 12 dies, 9 Little Bits dies and 3 cutting plates! All products are available in the store NOW! Before you head over to do some shopping, I have one more project to show you.

I made a set of four cards featuring Big Bold Summer. I couldn't decide which sentiment to use, so I used all of them... lol. I also used the Hexagon Cutting Plate on the background (created an impression of the plate rather than cutting it). Each card has an embellishment created with a different Little Bits die.

Now let's take a closer look at each card. The first one features the Little Bits - Beach Umbrella. I took a small scrap of Choice Snow White cardstock and layered some striped washi tape over it before I cut it with the die.

The next one actually includes a stamp of the sun above the sentiment. I only stamped the sentiment, then I added the sun using Little Bits - Sun & Clouds.

I used Little Bits - Flip Flops below. I would love to have some cute flip flops like that!

My final card uses my favorite sentiment of the set. I used Little Bits - Soda Bottle to create my embellishment. I omitted the straw to make it look like a beer bottle... ;)
