The coming July Release of new stamp sets and dies from Taylored Expressions is such a FUN one!  I just know the samples you’ll see today from the Baker’s Dozen will make you smile and I’m happy to get to play along as well!  The first set we’re peeking is Life is a Circus.  This full sized set of 17 images was illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink collection at TE.  After hitting it out of the park with Green Acres last month (which BTW should be back in stock any day now), he’s following it up with all the fun of a day at the circus!

For those of you with fond memories of clowns, you’ll see plenty in the peeks today.  For those of you who are clown-haters like me –  *shudders* #scaredasachildbythosehorriblethings –  there are plenty of other adorable images in this set that you’ll love…like the lion I’m showing you today.  My card is based on Karen’s Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC123) and uses MME Fine & Dandy Tickled Pink 6×6 pad (hmmm seems to be out of stock at the moment.)  The balloons are covered with clear glaze pen and I used dots of black stickles for a little finishing touch.  The star is part of the new Seeing Stars Taylored Die Set – so many possibilities with this – you’re going to love it!  You’ll see more of it in my card below along with the new border die.   The lion’s mane was covered in a combo of yellow and orange stickles – sparkly!!!

The second set we’re peeking today is In the Clouds.  This full-sized set of 25 images and sentiments was illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line at TE.  These blimps and banners have a coordinating die set making it so easy to add dimension with these images.  And the blimps have other possibilities as well…like rockets and submarines.  When the set was in development, Taylor mentioned one day that one of the blimps could be a rocket ship.  Well, being married to a Rocket Scientist, you know I latched onto that idea right away!

My tent topper card features papers from the MME Stella and Rose – Hattie 6×6 pad.  The rocket was stamped and cut with the coordinating die.  Then I colored it with Copics and covered it with Glossy Accents.  It’s popped up on foam squares.  The card is finished off with a ton of KasierCraft yellow rhinestones.  Isn’t that new border die awesome?  It cuts out tiny stars inside a string of circles!  And you can use the tiny stars too!

Now let’s see what the Baker’s Dozen has cooked up today!  Remember to leave comments to be entered into the Mystery Baker’s Dozen Blog Giveaways this week.
