Taylored Expressions June Sneak Peeks: You're Sweet!

Hello! It's Day 2 of sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions, and all of the new products will be available on Thursday, June 8th at 7AM PDT!

For my first peek today, I used the adorable new Little Bits Pineapple Die along with the fun new Little Bits Sunglasses Die! I put my pineapples together using Potato Chip and Sweet Basil cs and sponged around with the same colors of ink. The sunglasses were cut out of Cookie Monster, Lollipop, and Earl Grey Ink

For my scene, I started by embossing a piece of Salt Water Taffy cs with the Cloudy Days Embossing Folder. I added a strip of water that I cut out of Cookie Monster cs and the sand cut out of Buttercream Frosting cs using a Build a Scene Rolling Hills Die. the palm trees are from the Big Kahuna Stamp Set and I stamped them with Oreo Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I cut them out with the coordinating Big Kahuna Dies. The sun was cut with the Build a Scene Sunshine Die out of Buttercream Frosting cs and sponged with Lemon Meringue Ink and then sentiment was cut with a Stitched Banner Stacklets Die. Finally, I framed the scene using a Picture Perfect Sunny Days Die and some Lollipop cs. I just LOVE how this came out:)

For my next card, I used the fab new Sunshine Cutting Plate to create another fun beach scene:

I started by cutting a piece of Lemon Meringue cs using the Sunshine Cutting Plate, and then sponged around the center using Candy Corn Ink. I then added the waves cut with a Build a Scene Rolling Waves Die out of Cookie Monster cs and sponged with Cookie Monster Ink. The sand was cut using a Build a Scene Rolling Hills Die once again along with some Buttercream Frosting cs. I then added the grass cut out of Peapod cs with the Grass Border Die.

The awesome palm tree and hibiscus flower were cut using the new Build a Scene Tropical Dies. I am loving this new set of dies!!! I cut the base of the tree out of Toffee cs and the top using Peapod cs. The coconuts were cut out of Chocolate Truffle cs. I used two of the flower dies to make my hibiscus and cut them out of Lollipop cs. The center was cut out of Lemon Meringue cs, and the leaves out of Sweet Basil cs. To finish off my card I added the sentiment from the Big Kahuna Stamp Set. Doesn't it make you want to go lay on the beach?
