Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks: Back to School + Little Bits Crayons

Hello! Welcome to the first day of Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks! The Baker's Dozen is kicking off 4 days of projects (3 days of peeks and release day). After taking the month of July off, we are excited to show you some new TE products! We are releasing 12 new stamp sets and 16 new dies! All products will be released on Thursday, August 8, @ 7 AM PST.

This month, we have Melyssa Connolly joining us as Guest Designer, and Jeanne Streiff is the newest member of the Baker's Dozen! Welcome Melyssa and Jeanne! I know you will love what they have created!

My first card uses Mischief Maker - Back to School, the newest MM illustrated by Danielle Lounds! I stamped this cutie on Choice Watercolor paper and colored with Gansai Tambi water colors. I LOVE these paints! They are so creamy!

Here's a detail shot:

My next card features one of the new Little Bits dies. This one is Little Bits - Crayon. I die cut the crayon in a rainbow of colors. The sentiment is from Mischief Maker - Back to School.
