June Release At a Glance
The year is very nearly half over! It's June, which is my favorite month and I'm so glad I get to share some fun projects this week for Release Week at Taylored Expressions! Today we are feeling a bit patriotic, which is good because Independence Day is just around the corner!
My first card today features the wonderful new Petite set, Yankee Doodle Homestead. This is another sweet home in the Adorable Abode line of darling stamps and the bright idea of our fab Design Coordinator, Jami Sibley.
I paired this patriotic little house with the patterned paper and ribbon included in this month's rockin' Project Pantry. Also, I used one of the absolutely terrific new TE dies, Petal Pop-Ups 1. Here I used the medium-sized bloom and added a button...I love how it looks like a 4th of July corsage!
Next I have a card featuring the new Moka Betsy stamp set. This sweet little girl is all dressed up to show her love of the U.S. of A.
I again used the paper from this month's 4th of July Project Pantry (featuring Let Freedom Ring paper from Pebbles/American Crafts) -- for more details, check Taylor's blog HERE. I also created my own paper by stamping one of the included stars in silver on the navy card stock. I also pulled out one my old favorite TE Border Dies, filling in each star with paper for contrast.
