Taylored Expressions September Studio Challenge


It's time for the Baker's Dozen Studio Challenge.  This is a monthly opportunity for the Taylored Expressions team to share what makes our stamping studios hum.  Each month we  have a fun, crafty question or theme so we can share our favorites, some tips and tricks, stamping advice and more.

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 BoardWhen 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.

There are several ways you can play along including simply having some fun on Pinterest or  to play along and create a stamped project.  Hop over the the Taylored Expressions blog for all the details!!  Four winners will be chosen at random from all contest entries to win a copy of the 2013 Taylored Expressions Catalog & Idea Book (a $9.95 value).  One Grand Prize winner will be chosen at random from all eligible entries to receive a copy of the 2013 TE Catalog & Idea Book AND a TE Stamp set of the winner's choice!
