Taylored Expressions Sneak Peeks Day 2-In the Park

It's time for more sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions. Today you'll see samples using In the Park and Weigh to Go, along with the Summertime Project Pantry. The new products will be available in the TE Store tomorrow, July 8th.

I'm sharing a sweet tea tin that I decorated using images from In the Park. This set makes me want to go outside and take a's so adorable! All the papers on my project are from the Summertime Project Pantry...full of bright cheery colours just like summer!

I started by stamping the new Stitched Plaid big background onto a strip of yellow have to look closely to see it because I used white Stazon, but it adds a wonderful look to the cardstock. Then I added the fun blue polka dot border, which is a sticker element from the Summertime Project Pantry. I used my grass border punch on one of the patterned papers to create the grass strip before I set to work on the images.

All the images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White (included in the Project Pantry) and coloured with copics. I cut out each of the images so I could pop them on foam tape for dimension.

I used Espresso Dimensional Pearls on the trunk of the tree and added a few patterned paper leaves.

I added Multicolour Twinkles to the flowers and the kite tail for a little sparkle.

This is going to be a handy little tin to have on hand when I need to wrap up some goodies.

Let's go see what the rest of the Bakers' Dozen created using either In the Park or Weigh to Go.

Thanks for stopping by!
