Taylored Expressions July Release Day

Hi friends!  All of the new Taylored Expressions products are now available in the Fresh Out of the Oven Department!

For today's showcase, I have two cards for you.  First up is Adventure Land.

I started by stamping this adorable carousel on Choice Snow White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored it with Copic Markers.  I used the Seeing Stars Die for the star in the circle and layered it over the Fly Your Flag 2 Die.  The Majestic Border Die is layered underneath the Small Scallop Border Die, for a fun amusement park tent look.  The layout is Monday Card Madness #82.

I used these products on my Adventure Land card:

Up next is Life Saver.

I'm using Jen Shults' DS57 for this card and I grabbed some On the Sunny Side papers.  I stamped the life preserver in Memento Tuxedo Black and then cut it out with the Life Saver Die (the die comes with the stamp set - how fun is that??!).  I colored the image with Copic markers and then popped it up over some Ladybug Doodle Twine.

I used these products on my Life Saver card:
