Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peek

Good morning!  The Baker's Dozen Design Team is hosting a pre-release peek of all the new Taylored Expressions sets and dies that will be available in the TE Store Thursday, August 9th!  Woot!  Taylor is throwing a special Preview Party over on the TE Facebook Page on Wednesday, August 8th at 6PM PDT - there are lots of prizes available, so you will definitely want to join in on all the fun!

Today, I'm giving you a special sneak of a new Apple Doodle Ink set - Happy Trails, which is illustrated by the amazingly talented Doug Applegate. This set is all about camping in style - retro style!

I started by stamping the fire pit and mountains in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Choice Buttercream Cardstock and then I stamped the mountains again on a sheet of Away We Go 6x6 Paper from My Mind's Eye and paper pieced them over the cloud background paper.  I added some Moonlight Smooch for the snow capped peaks (about 3 coats).  I colored the fire pit with Copic Markers and then popped it up over the sentiment on Kraft Cardstock.

Hop on over to see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen have whipped up for you today:
