I am SO excited for this month's previews to begin, and I simply ADORE the set I am sharing with you today...Royal Digs! This set is one of two new sets illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink line at Taylored Expressions, and are the newest offerings in the Adorable Abodes collection! Just like ALL of the stamps at Taylored Expressions, Royal Digs is made of high quality rubber already mounted on EZ Mount. Just pop it on a block and stamp away!
I LOVE this castle...and I love how you can make it girly, masculine, fairy tale, etc. The possibilities are endless! I stamped my castle in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored my castle with Copic Markers to match the papers I've used on my card, This & That Charming from Echo Park Papers. I used the previously released Fly Your Flag 3 Stamp Set and Taylored Die to add the sweet little "celebrate" flag. I LOVE how it matches the flags on the castle! The border was created with the new Majestic Border Taylored Die...and I SWOONED when I saw this border. LOVE it! I added a bit of twine and TONS of stitching.
Here is a closeup of the flag created with the Fly Your Flag 3 Taylored Die and set. I colored a toothpick with a Copic Marker for the little flag pole. It's popped up on my card with Foam Tape for dimension.
I really had no place to add a sentiment on the front of my card, so I decorated the inside as well. I used more of the same patterned paper and added another border with the Majestic Border Taylored Die. I stamped the sentiment, "You Deserve The Royal Treatment On Your Birthday", also from Royal Digs and added more twine. LOVE that sentiment!
Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on my card:
