Taylored Expressions Peek-a-Boo Pumpkins and Summer Fun!



Hi everyone!  Summer is in full swing and keeping everyone busy I’m sure!

My first card today is using a new for August Peek-a-Boo stamp set and Peek-a-Boo die set. Swoon…do you ever think back to the days before matching stamps and dies?!  Oh, we are so fortunate to have such fun ‘things’ to create with!

I stamped the pumpkins with Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink using the MISTI and then die cut with the coordinating dies.

The sign post is a new Little Bits die, I swiped it a couple times with the Gathered Twigs Distress Ink pad…the dirt is a new embossing folder called ‘Weathered’.

I had to throw in some other TE dies to finish off the scene.  I love the word ‘fall’, standing in as a cloud! *grin*




I know…goofy, goofy angle, now why didn’t I notice that before I finished the photos!  It happens! lol

I’ll never get enough of the TE Shaded Thanks Tree die…love it.  Cut in Toffee/kraft cardstock and colored. Wispy grass and the fence from the Garden Arbor and Gate die set.


Next up…a Summer fun birthday card…




It’s an overcast rainy day here…so I’ll bring on the sun with this card!  I love this basket die from TE and when you emboss it with the new We R Memory Keepers Woven embossing folder…well… it really looks like a basket!  So cool!




There’s that fence again and this time I used the tree from the On The Line die and the word dies from the June Script set.

Stamps, dies and cardstocks I used are from Taylored Expressions HERE.


Thanks so much for clicking over to my blog today!  Now what to make next!  : )

  1. I love your summer fun card Pam and am not ready to give summer up!!!!!! As always I bow to your talent and gift of die cutting cards. Always fabulous.

  2. Pam you have created the most beautiful little scenes! love the basket and watermelon ,gosh that is adorable! The pumpkins make me wish fall was here already!

  3. “Fall” all ready !!! The card is really cute. The summer card made the day a little brighter. It has been rainy all day.

  4. Love love both of your cards, the pumpkin scene is bringing memories and creative ideas of fall, and love the picnic basket especially the watermelon. Soon be time to put up the flip flops (love my flip flops) and exchange them for the “snow boots”. NOT

  5. Oh these are both SO beautiful!! I love the little fall scene with the cute pumpkins and fence, and the summer scene is equally breathtaking!! Your little cluster of flowers and watermelon around the basket is so lovely!!

  6. Love these cards! I like the way you used different patterns and textures on the tree, pumpkins and basket. These adorable cards are so refreshing and soothing from this heat wave we’re having here in WA. I’m tempted to take a bite of your delicious watermelon, just so I can cool off. LOL! Thanks Pam, for the inspiration.

  7. Hi, Pam…me again. I was looking at the 3D embossing folders you used for your basket card. Will those 3D embossing folders work in any machine or do you have to have the Revolution machine? Lots of places are out of stock, but I did find them on Amazon and Ebay. TE is out of them, too. I looked at a video on them, but they didn’t say that any machine would do. They used the Revolution machine. Thanks for any help.

  8. I love both of these cards. The fall one is darling with the cute pumpkins. Wonder if a small horse would fit behind the fence. LOL And the summery fun card is delightful. You’re really good with the scenes! Love all the pretty colors!

  9. Thanks, Pam….I do have a Big Shot and I also have a Grand Caliber….thank you for your response….just wasn’t sure and didn’t want to buy something and then not have the correct equipment to use it….

  10. Really like both cards. Love the basket weave look. Actually I love the whole card!!!I have a lot of Tailored Expression dies but you always have that special way of making them come alive on your cards. I love their background dies and enjoy cutting out several colors and piecing the background. It takes some time but the result is cool.

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
