Taylored Expressions June Previews – Day 3

Hi everyone! It’s Day 3 of Taylored Expressions‘ June 6 release previews! Today I am sharing (what I think are) my two favorite samples from this release. First up is On the Water Fishing Boat with new On the Right Track Basics, a new die set for creating interactive cards.

I love this fishing boat because it reminds me of Deadliest Catch (which is actually about crab fishing but that’s ok).  The boat was a lot of fun to assemble. I especially like the intricate parts, like the crane. (It’s so detailed and very cool.)  :)

I used the long, straight element from On the Right Track Basics to create a horizontal slider within the Rolling Waves. On the back of the front panel, I adhered small squares of foam tape at each end of the track to keep the boat from sliding past the card edges.

My second card uses new Busy Beaver stamp & die combo, created in honor of Canada’s 150th birthday July 1st. The set is super cute with several play-on-words sentiments (including an “eh?”).  :)

I stamped and die-cut a handful of logs, colored the beaver with Copics then added white dots to his cheeks using Copic’s Opaque White and a toothpick.

Copic markers – E31, E33, E35, E41, E43, E44, E47, G17, G28, R20; Copic Opaque White

I colored a small patch of card stock with a red marker then die-cut a Little Bits Balloon and “tied” it to one of the logs.
