It’s preview time for July at Taylored Expressions and you are going to LOVE this release. It is PACKED with cute, whimsical and plain old FUN stamps!
Today I’m using the brand new Under the Sea stamp set illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes collection. This stamp set is filled with 21 adorable fishies and GREAT matching sentiments and under sea images. Each Taylored Expressions stamp set comes to you made of high quality red rubber, mounted on cling foam, die cut on a full color plastic panel that fits perfectly into a Mini Binder Box that holds four full sized stamp sets.
For my card I started out by stamping the whale and turtle on Choice Snow White cardstock using Memento Ink and colored them with Copics Markers. Next I fussy cut them and set them aside to make the background. I used Echo Park’s Paradise Beach designer paper along with a kraft cardstock base. I distressed all the edges using a Prima Distress Tool and sponged the edges of everything with Ranger Distress Ink in Faded Jeans. I stamped the sentiment on Choice Snow White cardstock and then die cut it using a Spellbinders Circle die and used the die as a mask to sponge the center with Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans Distress Ink. To finish everything off I added a banner made from the Fly Your Flag 2 Taylored Die and a bit of doodling with a Sharpie Pen.
Here’s a couple of close ups of the fish:
Aren’t they so cute! I just LOVE this stamp set! This card is going to be for my brother in law who has a birthday coming up next week and is a avid fisherman. 🙂
Here are the Taylored Dies used on my card:
