Beach Bum

Good Morning!
Ready for some CUTE cuppies from Taylored Expressions?!
Today I'm sharing the adorable new set called Beach Bum. I've used the Beach Bum Key Ingredients for my cards.
The Prism cardstock colors included are:
Classic Purple
Intense Kiwi
Nautical Blue Light
Blush Red Medium
Sunflowers Medium

The neutral is Choice Buttercream. The patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket Snorkel Collection. There will also be 5 yards of ribbon, coordinating Snorkel cardstock stickers, and a package of bright smooth bling.
I stamped the image in Memento Black and coloured with Copics. I couldn't figure out where to put one of the fun sentiments so I stamped "Having a Bad Day?" on the inside ;)
My second card features an embellishment(palm tree brad) which is available with the Beach Bum Bundle. The dp that is included with this bundle is so FUN!~ The pattern on this piece reminds me of beach balls....don't you agree? LOL!
Stop by the Baker's Dozen blogs to see their sneak peeks today!

Remember that all the new stamps will be available tomorrow(June 5th at 8 am PST) Here is a special bundle that you will be able to purchase on release day.


Thanks for stopping by!
