Taylored Expressions Release Day!

Hi all! It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions and you can NOW as of midnight purchase the new stamps and key ingredients you've seen over the past couple days!

This time I made a card with the Trick or Sweet set. Each one of these trick-or-treater cupcakes are individual stamps. I stamped them once onto post-it notes and cut them out. Then one at a time I stamped them again onto white CS, using the cut-out post-it notes as "masks." I started with the front row of characters, then stamped the vampire and cat in the second row, and then stamped the mummy in the back.

My card measures 5.25" x 5.25" square. I colored the image with Copic markers (the numbers are noted below in the recipe). I added some Crystal Effects to the brads in the lower corners of the card and sprinkled on some of Taylor's Black Ice glitter. The Doodlebug patterned paper, textured Prism cardstock, purple brads, black brads, ribbons, and glitter are all available for purchase at the Taylored Expressions store.

I'm including a picture of the inside of the card as well. I glued down a white panel, a strip of Intense Orange Prism paper along the bottom, a strip of the Doodlebug DP along the top, and then stamped the sentiment on the white CS.

Okay, I'm out of the loop for a week and I miss out on so much! So, Taylor launched a stamp company? Where have I been? Congratulations of the design team spot, by the way. I'm so glad your little one is doing well in preschool. :-) And, oh my goodness, I almost forgot about my GSG2 swap. I better get crackin'!
