Sending You Sunshine

Good Morning!

Long weekends and short work weeks are fabulous aren't they? *sigh* Wish every week was like this. I'd be a more relaxed person if it were! Just saying.... ;)

Going on right now are sneak peeks of the June releases for Taylored Expressions, and before I help the Taylor and the Bakers Dozen lasses launch the huge release on Friday morning, I wanted to show you one more card using the Garden Party Blooms set.

I couldn't resist purchasing May's Project Pantry Garden Party Kit since the colors were so vibrant and fun and go together with this set like bugs on a plant! hehehe Having never bought one of these kits before, I was amazed at how much was actually in these kits! There's enough stuff crammed in that set to make anywhere between 8-12 cards (depending on how much you like your layers - hehe)! That's less than $2 a card at that price! :)

I chose to stamp the tulip this time with my Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink in Warm Red, then the stem with Moss Green. Being a novice stamper, I don't always get a clean and crisp stamped image, so I will often go back and color over my stamped image with my ink and aquapainter. It covers those small areas with ink and leaves my image looking much more solid. Then I added just a wee bit of Diamond Stickles to the flower for just a touch of sparkle. Gotta have some sparkle right?

If you haven't guessed by now, I borrowed Taylor's TESC115 sketch for my layout and used some black adhesive pearls for the details at the top and bottom of the card. It worked out perfectly for this stamp set!

Ok, so as I said, sneak peeks of the June releases are flying all over TE-land, so if you want to see what's being released, then I highly suggest you get your skates on and roll on over to the blogs of the Baker's Dozen to see what they've cooked up!
