All of the new Taylored Expressions products for July are NOW AVAILABLE in the Fresh Out of the Oven Department!  And I get to join the Baker’s Dozen again today in showcasing all of the new stamp sets.  I have two cards to show you.

First up is another card featuring Coconut Cove – a mini set concepted by yours truly and illustrated by Doug Applegate as part of the Apple Doodle Ink line at TE.

For this card I wanted to create more of a twilight beach scene with the tiki torches.  I stamped the tiki torches first and then masked them and stamped the beach hut and palm tree so they would appear behind the torches.  The beach and sky were sponged with inks.  I used the Wave Taylored Die at the bottom, cut twice from patterned paper with the bottom one popped up on foam dots.  The paper is from the Echo Park Paradise Beach pad.

Both of my cards today include my favorite design touch – a bit of black.

Next up is a fun card featuring Under the Sea by Nancy McKinney.  This stamp set has soooooo many possiblities!  As soon as I saw the set, I knew I wanted to created an underwater scene.

I stamped a bunch of images from the set onto watercolor paper and then colored with an aquapainter and SU inks.  But here’s the really cool part – once the watercolor was dry, I covered the whole panel with Versamark ink direct to paper and then with kaliedescope embossing powder and heat embossed the whole thing.  It’s sparkly and just slightly hazy like water would be.

You might have noticed the embellishments I used on these two cards.  At first glance they might look the same, but they are actually quite different and I have a little video ready to show you tomorrow to compare the Queen & Co. Goosebumps to the Pebbles Crystal Candy Dots. They are both really cool.  I hope you drop by tomorrow to see my short little video.
