Good Morning Everyone,
Its Day 2 of Sneak Peeks over at Taylored Expressions and can I just tell you that I am in cupcake wonderland!! Today's sneak peeks come from the set called For the Love of Cupcakes that will be available tomorrow June 5, at 8am PST over at the Taylored Expressions store! Seriously - this set is beyond sweet - I had so much fun creating some samples - it was hard to stop :)
Along with this sweet stamp set - Taylor is releasing a coordinating Cupcake Key Ingredients set! The Key Ingredients will include cardstock, coordinating designer paper, brads, glitter, ribbon - all in one place and there are so many quantities of each included that it is easy to make a ton of cards from one Key Ingredients packet!
1. Blingy Cupcake Birthday Cards
I love all the different cupcake options in this set and couldn't wait to ink them up! I used a previous sketch from Taylor to create this little birthday card - I love the sentiment: "Wishing you a birthday filled with cupcakes!" Who doesn't want that!!! The little cupcake brad in the bottom is so delcious :) - I added a little bling and some liquid pearls (I can't help it - I think i am addicted to them :) and finished the card of with a bow from the Key Ingredients set. All the pieces of the card are paper pieced from papers from the Key Ingredients package.
I love the candle stamp in this set - and had fun stamping and cutting them out and adherring them onto the card. I made a second card - simillar to this one using the same elements - and used Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch #89 for this card. I love the brads that come with the Cupcake Key Ingredients - the little ice-cream brad on the bottom is my favorite :)
Here is a close up of the plate of cupcakes - I added a little crystal effect to create a glass like look - here is a closer peek at that:
2. Quick Birthday Card Set:
Have you ever needed just a quick birthday card? I always feel like I can never keep my birthday card drawer fully stocked and June is a busy month for us - full of birthdays and so I needed to renew my birthday card supply. I decided to make a little set of birthday cards using the Key Ingredients papers and For the Love of Cupcake Stamps. I loved my fellow DT member Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch and so I used the same sketch to make all 4 of these cards.
I love the papers in this Cupcake Key Ingredients set - they are so fun and festive and make creating cards so easy. Here is the first two cards in this set of four:
for a little embellishment, I created little quilled circles and filled it with a little rhinestone bling - here is a close up peek of the little quilled embellies:
3. Happy 29th Cupcake Birhday
Today is my friend's birthday (Happy Birthday D!!!) She is turning 29 (again ;) and I made a her a little yummy birthday card filled with stacked cupcakes! I really LOVE this particular cupcake image - it is just so delcious! I used Taylor's Friday Cupcake Challenge #70 for this card:
I used some liquid pearls for the frosting on the cupcakes and then covered it with liquid glass.
On the inside of the card I stacked up some cupcakes (paper pieced and liquid pearls for frosting - (totally inspired by Laurie Schmidlin's stacked birthday presents from her sneak peek yesterday) and stamped the number 29 and adhered it on top (I LOVE that there are numbered candle stamps in this set!!!).
4. Cupcake Die Cut Card:
Taylor has these awesome Cupcake Die Cuts that are so versatile in what you can create with them. You could create one to hold a gift certificate or even just a birthday message. I ran the die cut through with a sprinkled embossing folder and then on the inside created a happy birthday message using the word cupcake from a set of glittered sheets (also I sprinkled some glitter on the cherry). I LOVE how quick this was to assemble!
You could write a message on the bottom or even add a little gift card to it and it becomes both a card and a present :)
----------------I love all the options that are included in this set and the Cupcake Key Ingredients - I have so much more supplies left over to make some more cupcake yumminess! Good thing too because there are still a lot of birthday cards to make before June is over :) Here is the skinny on an awesome packet of goodies that Taylor will be releasing tomorrow - this is the Cupcake Bundle! It is packet with yumminess!
