The theme for September is:
We’re continuing our month-long TE Birthday Bash celebration with a special birthday-inspired Studio Challenge! Sometimes all we need to help us create is to simply see something that is beautiful, cool, or unique. Did you know that Taylored Expressions has over 30 boards on Pinterest filled with crafty eye-candy? We’d love to have you follow us at http://pinterest.com/tayloredexpress
Today’s challenge: choose a photo from Taylor’s Birthday Inspiration Pinterest Board to inspire a stamped creation!
I used this adorable cupcake photo from Taylor's Birthday Inspiration Board. When I looked at this photo, it reminded me of the Berries & Cherries set. I remember the one image in that set with the little leaves and strawberries. So, I created a background by stamping that image repeatedly and colored it with Copic markers.
After adhering the background panel to the card, I die cut a piece of cardstock using the Medium Scallop Border Die and stamped the sentiment on there. Last, I used the Build a Treat Tops & Bottoms Die Set to create the cupcake. I covered the top of the cupcake in glitter to make it nice and sparkly! :) The little strawberries on top were stamped using the Berries & Cherries set, colored and cut out. I added some pretty ribbon to finish the card.
