Hi everyone! It’s Taylored Expressions June RELEASE day!! Woohoo!! All of the fantastic products we have been sharing over the last week are now available for purchase over at the TE shop! Today I am revisiting a product I used yesterday and sharing a card using a new product that I haven’t used yet this week. 🙂
My first card uses the Caps Lock – USA die again but this time hopefully with a different look. I started my card by sponging two pieces of Sugar Cube cardstock – the first with Cherry Pop, fading to white(ish) and the second with Blue Corn, Blue Raspberry, Cookie Monster and Confetti Cake all in descending lightnesses.
I die cut Caps Lock – USA from the Cherry Pop sponged cardstock and I die cut a medium sized Stitched Circle Stacklet from the cardstock sponged with the different blues. I adhered the letters to the circle and then attached a Double Ended Flag Banner die cut from Blue Corn and stamped/embossed with Land of the Free. Next I used the Here Comes the Sun stencil to sponge Cherry Pop on Sugar Cube cardstock. I attached everything together and mounted it on a Cherry Pop cardbase using foam tape. I added three small Sugar Cube enamel stars to finish off the card. 🙂
My second card features a new die set that is just so adorable – S’more Than a Feeling. This die set actually goes perfect with my first card because every year during our Fourth of July Celebration we cook s’mores (unless it’s raining)!!
I started by die cutting all of the pieces from cardstock that matched the object and then sponged the marshmallows with toffee to make them look cooked. Next I used the Set the Scene – Clouds stencils to make a sky scene on Sugar Cube cardstock using Confetti Cake ink. I die cut the grass panel using Build a Scene – Rolling Hills from Peapod and stamped the lower center portion with Sweet Basil ink and a sentiment from Ooey Gooey Stamp & Die Combo.
I used foam tape here and there to help elevate layers and arranged the s’mores around the campfire. I almost made one of the marshmallows a burned marshmallow but decided – eh, that’s gross! 🙂
That’s it for me today! I hope you’ve enjoyed all of the sneak peeks this week and I’ll see you again soon!
