Taylored Expressions June Sneak Peek: GG Patriotic and Beach Border

It's that time again!!  Time for peeks of all of the new products that are coming to Taylored Expressions on Thursday, June 6th!!  This release is packed with summery goodness!  Today I have two projects to share with you.  The first uses the Graphic Greetings Patriotic set.  I decided to stamp and cut apart the sentiments for this project. 

I used the new Patriotic Project Pantry and created a flag with the patterned paper.  In the spaces for the white stripes, I added the cut apart sentiments from Graphic Greetings Patriotic.  To finish the card off, I added a little bow using some of the ribbon that comes in the Project Pantry.

My second project uses the NEW Beach Border Die.  The Beach Border Die is a fun die that can make a card in minutes, or you can spend a little more time like I did.  :)  I decided I wanted to "paper piece" my die cut so I die cut the border out of several cardstock and cut pieces to glue over top of a brown base. 

The background paper was stamped with a wave image from the NEW Ride the Wave set, as well as the sentiment.  After I finished paper piecing the die cut, I added some Stardust Stickles to the palm trees to give a little sparkle.  Doesn't this die look fun??  Now, of course you can make it simple and die cut it in one color as a silhouette and place over top of a fabulous background that you've created for a sky.  :)

The rest of the Baker's Dozen has lots more to show you using these are other new products!!  Be sure to visit each of their blogs for a peek!!
