I love Taylored Expressions!

Today is the Taylored Expressions:

Because Taylor is so great and she knows we all love her stuff… she decided to let us customers put her stamps to use!  She challenged us customers (and fans!) to use any set from 2008 or 2009 to create a card for the hop so we can all revisit our favorite little cupcakes and their friends.  She had the oh-so-lovely Sankari Wegman design us this sketch as a “guide”….. I, of course, took it fairly literally as I tend to do 🙂  Here is my card:

and here is the sketch…..

See what I mean?  Sometimes I can’t escaped my left-braindedness.  Its a great sketch and I instantly knew what I would do with it.  I love love the stamp set Home Sweet Home…. which I decided to use even though it is May!  I really love the little caroling cupcake, but I wanted to use this paper too and I thought the snowman would be a better fit!  He’s stamped and colored with Copics and then it was really a fairly quick card to assemble!  You may be thinking- “where did that massive snowflake come from?????” Well, don’t get your hopes up too high.  It was a Christmas tree ornament I got at Bath and Body Works 3 years ago and have been saving for the right project.  I’m a total dork.  Anyway… its really fun to see what everyone else came up with!  You can click HERE to go to Taylor’s blog and start at the beginning OR since I can’t use HTML script codes in this blog I’ll help you along.  You probably came from Michelle’s blog- now you are here- next on the list is Heidi
