Taylored Expression Studio Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Today over at Taylored Expressions, the Design Team is showing projects from from this month's Baker's Dozen Studio Challenge studio challenge, where each month there is a different question that we answer and a fun way to get our craftiness on!!! This month's theme is Project Runway!

PROJECT RUNWAY!  Do you watch this show?  It's perfect for creative types like us!  On PR, the designers are given crazy challenges each week and asked to maintain their own personal style or point of view in their creation.

So, what's your stamping style or point of view?  Would you consider your style to be CAS (Clean and Simple), Cutesy, Graphic, Vintage, Elegant, Layers & More Layers, or what?  Describe it any way you like, it's
your style after all!  Today's challenge is to show us a couple of different projects using the same supplies.  Show us one CAS card and one Fancy Fold card while still retaining your own personal style as much as possible.
When I was thinking about my stamping style, I was trying to figure out a description - but I think I tend to fall into the category of "more is more" :) Its really hard for me to do a very simple card because I always want keep adding things - so this was a difficult challenge because it also included doing a CAS card! That takes me hours because it always feels like something is missing :) For my CAS card - I used the Build A Treat Borders stamp set for the image and the Build A Treat stamp set for my sentiment (I LOVE this sentiment! Makes me want to eat a cupcake right now!) I tried to keep the layers simple and matched the colors to the DP from the Cosmo Cricket's UpCycle: I love these cute cupcakes - and the fork in the sentiment :)

 Using the same supplies and the same stamp set, I created a trifold card that opens to the side. I cut 1/4 of the card from two of the sides so that you can see the back layer onto which I put the sentiment: For my Favorite Lil' Cupcake :)

 And then when the card is opened, there is another row of cupcakes revealed. I love how this turned out. This was such a great challenge, because usually I made A2 cards, and it was fun to be challenged to create a different way to open and close a card!

I can't wait to see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has created! Each of these ladies have such amazing styles - can't wait to see what their take on the Project Runway Challenge is - please hop along with me:
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
