Taylor's Cupcake Challenge
Yesterday I had a wonderful opportunity to stamp just for fun! And I managed to create six cards in just a few hours...It was delightful! Soon I'll have to pack up all of my supplies for our move. My goodies will be moving into a lovely but smaller studio. Our plan is to build in storage and counter space. However, that will probably leave much of my supplies packed so...I'm hard at work creating cards and projects to share during the transition. Last night I inked up some stamps I've never used and am looking forward to showing you the results! The card above is also using a brand new stamp, part of a new Stampin' Up! set called, Fifth Avenue Floral. It is a delightful set that I've had my eye on for awhile...I'm thrilled that it's now part of my collection! The paper used on the card coordinates with the stamps in the set and it can be found here. I used Copics to color in the flower, which has been cut out and attached with dimensional tape. The center of the flower is covered in tiny rhinestones, purchased from Taylor's store, Taylored Expressions. They're much sparklier (is that a word??) in person! :-) The layout comes from Taylor and was her weekly cupcake challenge. I thought this was a wonderful layout, simple, clean lines and super versatile! Go to Taylor's blog to check out her amazing work and follow links to other stampers who have participated in the challenge. Enjoy!
