Let the Shopping Begin!

September 4th, 2008

Run, don’t walk over to Taylor’s webstore Taylored Expressions!!!


Yep – it’s time – the Official Release of the Taylored Expressions Stamp a Sweet Impression line of rubber stamps, unmounted storage, and Key Ingredients packages.  You can get all the deets at Taylor’s blog.

Tonight I have a project to share that utilizes the Sweet Celebration stamp set and the Birthday Girl Key Ingredients.


One of the papers in the KI package has this green corner border and it reminded me of a tablecloth so I set out playing with layouts until I came up with this.  The stamped image is colored with Copics and the cake plate was paper pieced.  There are dots of Liquid Pearls along all the scallops and stickles on the candle flame.  And Cuppie’s little cherry top is covered with a clear Rain Dot (also available at Taylored Expressions).  I have both the red and the clear and I have used them on several SASI projects.  I highly recommend picking some up at TE when you go shopping!  After finishing this card I realized the pink twill is not from the KI pack, but it is available at TE in the ribbon section.


Not only is it Release Day, but it’s also Cupcake Friday and time for TECC32 – Taylor’s weekly Sketch Challenge.


I hope you’ll try out this fun sketch – cupcakes are not required to play!  You can check out all the details on Taylor’s blog.


I decided to flip the sketch on it’s side this week so I could use a really fun image from Sweet Celebration along with papers from the Birthday Girl Key Ingredients pack.



This is a personal Congratulations to Taylor for scaling that cupcake mountain and making it to the TOP!  I’m so proud and so excited of my sweet friend!

Cupcakes were colored with Copic markers and the little cherry is a Kaiser Craft red pearl this time.  The sentiment was created with the JustRite stamper Small Letters (from TE) and highlighted with Kaiser Craft dark pink rhinestones.  (Kaiser Craft available at eclectic Paperie.) The two ribbons are just stuff I had in my stash.

For those looking for Copic matches here’s what I have for the KI packages:

Birthday Girl – RV34 Dark Pink, YR15 Pumpkin Yellow, YG25 Celadon Green or YG03 Yellow Green

Birthday Boy – BG15 Aqua, B39 Prussian Blue, YG25 Celadon Green or YG03 Yellow Green

Halloween – BV04 Blueberry, YR15 Pumpkin Yellow, YG25 Celadon Green or YG03 Yellow Green and you’ll want a very dark gray and/or black.


Plus you’ll want to think about what colors you might want to use to color the frosting faces 🙂  I tended to use Y21 Buttercup Yellow, E27 Africano, and R32 Peach. 


The Cupcake Crew has sketch samples for you and the Baker’s Dozen girls have release projects for you (several of us are on both teams) – you can get links to all the different blogs over at Taylor’s blog.  And if you want to see a bunch of our samples in the gallery at SCS (more to be uploaded soon) just click here.

WooHoo!!!!  Shop, Blog Hop and PARTY!!!!!



So…after you place your order come on back – I’m dying to know what you got!!!!
