Taylored Expressions June Release DAY!


Release DAY @ Taylored Expressions!!!

It’s ALL about Summer! Relax, walk on the beach, ride a bike and maybe visit the zoo?! Maybe you don’t have to go very far to feel like you’re at the zoo! lol  Personally, I prefer my own little zoo inside my air conditioned house! lol


My husband would love this… goin’ fishin’!




Here I used the NEW Build a Scene – Rolling Waves dies …three stitched dies, each with a different wave pattern.

Here’s what I did – I cut a piece of watercolor paper…dropped water on to it with a dropper bottle…then drops of Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink reinker straight from the bottle onto the water drops…let it spread…then removed the excess with a paper towel.  Let it dry, then cut the waves from that piece.  Cool! See those white caps?! I love how it turned out! YAY!

I also used the new Build a Scene – Underwater dies in the scene foreground.

Don’t you love the new Little Bits Fishing Boat and Lighthouse!  So cute!


Meet this cute little crab!




The new Build a Scene – Underwater dies make the scene again here. Super cute plant life dies to perfectly complement the Under the Sea stamp set and new Under the Sea dies!

Well, he/she doesn’t look very crabby with that cute smile and googly eyes! lol Quick recovery! lol  I colored the crab with Copic Sketch Markers and die cut it with the new Under the Sea dies.

I used the new stitched Peek a Boo Circles die at the top of the card and the new Beadboard Embossing Folder for the lower part of the card front.


So glad you stopped by today! If you’d like to see more projects and new product information, please head over to the TE Blog for a complete blog roll of the participating designers!


Hope you’re inspired to create some cards with TE stamps and dies! I have two more cards…I’ll post them soon!

See ‘ya!

  9. Beautiful cards, Pam! I am loving the little sea scene you created with the tug boat. The splash of color in the center of the waves is an awesome detail. I might just have to borrow ;). And your little crabs card with the Peek-A-Boo die is spot on. Love the idea of using the die and then embossing the rest of the paper. Thank you for the inspiration!
