Today is Beach Day for our sneak peeks! TOO much fun! I have two sets to introduce to you! This first set is maybe my favorite TE set ever! I could have made 20 cards with it! It's called "A Day in Paradise" and it was illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes Line. The set is a full-size TE set and has 21 images. It is very versatile and the sentiments are great. I love it because it has a Cape Cod feel to it...and I love all things Cape Cod! That's where the DH and I were married!
Here's my first card with this awesome set! I wanted a soft beachy vibe to go with this gorgeous beach house image. Don't you love it? I chose a color palette that reminded me of sand, sky and shells... I used some thick twine to mimic rope or nets.
Here is my Copic Color Palette for this project! YUM!
I used the small starfish image to create my own background paper using krat paper and versamark ink.
Here is everything colored in and ready to cut out!
I added some tiny bits of fine glitter to the windows and the shells to make it look as if they are catching the light of the sun!
I wish I could go to this pretty beach house right now! You are seriously going to love this set!
Here's my second card made with "A Day in Paradise" set. This time I kept it really clean and simple. I have been seeing a lot of cards out there in blog-land that have a lot of white space. I wanted to give it a try. This card reminds me of a spa day!
The second set I'm introducing to you today is called "Surf's Up!" And, you can see why! This is a Penguin Petites set illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink line for TE. Each set had five images. I love the sentiments with this one! He was very fun to color!
Here is my Copic Palette for this card...bright and cheery!
Taylor is introducing a new wave die this month too. LOVE it! It cuts such a nice crisp image and is the perfect size for cards. I will use it again on my last project for the week! For this card I cut out two waves to add some depth. You can see below how it turned out. Taylor also sells the Nestabilities die I used for my main image!
See how my little wave came out!? The font for this set is really adorable. The paper I used is a new pack from Echo Park called Splash! The little fishies were my favorite.
This little guy is so cute...and there is another stamp set this month with his little surfer penguin girlfriend! She's called Beach Belle!
Each of Taylor's stamp sets are made from very high quality deeply etched pink rubber and they all come trimmed and ready to use with your acrylic blocks. They come on a hard plastic index sheet that has binder holes for easy storage.
Okay, I've given you lots to look at today! The new sets are great and perfect for Summer. Tomorrow's theme is Wedding Day and I'll be back with more projects.
As with every day...please go and check out what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has for you! There are other cool stamp sets that I did not use today.
