Hi Everyone!

I am sooooo excited for the birthday bash going on at Taylored Expressions this week - Taylored Expressions is turning 3 years old and I am so excited to be a part of the celebration!!! I still remember 3 years ago when Taylor announced that she was going to create TE stamps and I remember how excited I was for each release and to be part of the TE Design Team! The first sneak peek today is from the Sweet Party stamp set designed by Jessie Oleson (Petite stamp set - This is a stamp set that you can purchase for $7.95 on Thursday or one that you will get for free with a $100 purchase at the TE store!) which pays homage to the first stamp set: Sweet Celebration released 3 years ago! Isn't Cuppie so cute as he blows out his birthday cake with all his sweet friends!!! I couldn't wait to make a party happen and so stamped Cuppie and colored in all his friends and paper pieced the birthday cake with the Life of the Party papers from MME. I can't help but smiling everytime I look at sweet little Cuppie surrounded by his buddies!!

Card Ingredients:
Paper: My Mind's Eye Life of the Party 6x6 pad with Choice White cardstock from Taylored Expressions
Stamps: Sweet Party from Taylored Expressions
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Copics, liquid pearls, stickles, Nesties, EK success scalloped punch, Pennant Border from Taylored Expressions

For the second card - I am SOOO excited to show you this card using the newly to be released Build a Treat stamp set which is seriously SOOO much fun - you can create your treat - build your own cupcake - with whichever bottom and tops that you would like AND it also coordinatees with the Build a Treat Borders stamp set and coordinating dies: the Build a Treat Borders die and the Build a Treat Tops and Bottoms dies!!! All of these were illustrated by the awesome Nancy McKinney! There is so much cupcake/sweet treat goodness here that you will definitely be sugar buzzin' as you craft!!! :) I made this card using the Build a Treat stamp set and cut out the border of cupcakes with felt bottoms and then a matching top from the DP papers! Here are all the dies and Impression plates that I used (Lots of Dots Impressions Plate, the Pennant Border and the soon to be released Build a Treat Borders!) and check out these AWESOME Build a Treat border dies!!!

I love that you can build your own treat! I started by picking out the bottom that I wanted and then colored it in and then stamped the top with two different inks and then adhered them to the (Lots of Dots Impressions Plate background paper. I added a little gloss to the frosting and then created the border of cupcakes on the bottom - I LOVE the felt cupcake bottoms - seriously - it was soooo easy to create a cupcake border - something that I have been wanting for so long - and now I can't wait to use it all the time! I had sooo much fun making this card:
