Taylored Expressions Summertime Cuppie Peek Day 2


 sharks

I’m so excited to bring you samples of Summertime Cuppies {my name} in the stamp set Beach Bum that will be released this Friday, June 5 at 10:00 a.m. CST in the Taylored Expressions store.  On my first card, I used the cuppie surrounded by sharks in the ocean since this was my DH’s favorite image in the set.  I used my d’vine swirls cuttlebug folder to make my waves in the ocean and left my cuppie colorless in his face, obviously if you were surrounded by sharks, I’m sure the color would leave from your face too!  I used the bottom section of my long Tags 5 Nestability dies for my sentiment.

On this next card, I used the sunning cuppie on the fun paper-pieced chaise lounge as well as the palm tree and suntan lotion. I used fellow design team Jen Del Muro’s sketch for you to try from Saturday for my card. 

On both cards, I used the Beach Bum Key ingredients: a great collection of Prism cardstock colors, Classic Purple, Intense Kiwi, Nautical Blue Light, Blush Red Medium, Sunflowers Medium along with Choice Buttercream cardstock and the FUN Summer patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket Snorkel Collection.  There is also 5 yards of ribbon, coordinating Snorkel cardstock stickers, which I used on this card {Soakin’ Up the Sun!} and a package of bright smooth bling, which I used on my first cuppie card {cherry on top}.  The shaped palm tree brad  I used on this card is not part of the Key Ingredients, but is part of the Beach Bum Bundle which is outlined below.  I also used my fun deckle edge nestability dies for this image, it’s so fun to have some visual interest instead of straight lines sometimes!

How cute, Donna! I love that you left cuppie colorless in the face! Yep... I'd be white as a sheet if I were surrounded by sharks! And the clouds you created in your second scene are so wonderful!

I love the sponged clouds and sand on the second card...it's the perfect backdrop for the sunbathing cuppie (LOVE the plaid paper pieced shorts...er, I mean cupcake liner)! LOL!
