Taylored Expressions June Sneak Peek: Ride the Wave Border and Stars & Stripes!

Hello!  It's release week at Taylored Expressions, which means we have some fabulous new goodies to share with you over the next few days!  I LOVE this month's release and I know you will too!

My first card uses several new products.  For the background, I used the amazing new Ray of Sunshine Cutting Plate as well as the new Ride the Wave Border Die~don't you LOVE the shapes of these new dies?! I also used a new stamp set called Ride the Wave along with the coordinating Surfboard Die.  Ride the Wave has some awesome, grungy type images that are so perfect for making cool guy cards:)  I am going to get a lot of use out of this set!  Here's a close up:

Next up is a new set called Stars & Stripes with Coordinating USA Die-so awesome!  

To stamp the image, I taped off the star portion and inked up the stripes with red ink.  I then removed the tape and inked up the stars with blue ink.  It's not perfect, but I love the distressed look of the stamp, and felt like it didn't need to be perfect:)  

The die that comes with the set made it so easy to cut out!  The paper and ribbon come from the Patriotic Project Pantry Kit pictured below:

So do you like what you've seen so far?  I'll be back tomorrow with more peeks, but in the meantime, make sure you check out the rest of the Baker's Dozen blogs to see more amazing projects!
