SCS LoveFest 2013 - Taylored Expressions

Hi Everyone,

This month over at SCS, they are having a Love Fest!!! Oh YES! Each of the member companies are having challenges and prizes and today is Taylored Expressions challenge day: The challenge is to create 3x3 mini notecards that are perfectly handy to enclose with gifts and can be for any occasion :) There are some AMAZING prizes so please head over the the TE challenge thread at SCS for more information on how to play, the challenge rules and deadlines!!

I had a lot of fun with this challenge because I sure love little mini notecards - they are fun and easy to make in multiples and are perfect to have around when I am in desperate need for a quick card :) I didn't put any sentiment on mine - because in that way - it can be for birthdays, anniversaries, baby shower, congratulations cards for any event :) I decided to make them fun and festive and used the sweet little cupcake from the Build A Treat stamp set paired with some fun dies to make the card making process easy - these are:

1. Layering Doily die - small (set of 3) - this make s fun mat for the circle punch - and I die cut different cardstocks to create different colored mats
2. Scalloped Notecard die   - This die makes it super easy to create 3x3 notecards - and with a fun scalloped border!

I cut out my scalloped notecards and then created a little simple layout with some papers from the MME -Happy Day Collection - and then used the Pennant Border stamp to create the pennants that I hung from the corners:

 Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Pennant Border stampBuild A Treat stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Papers: MME -Happy Day Collection
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Bamboo Leaves, Bahama Blue, Rose Red, Lilac Posies and copics
AccessoriesScalloped Notecard die, Pennant Border die, circle punch, corner chomper, pearls and dimensionals  Layering Doily die - small

The cupcake that I used is so awesome to stamp because it is solid - that way there is no coloring - just stamp the image in the inks that you like and voila - an instant cupcake! The cupcake bottoms were colored with copics and then everything was cut out and assembled together on a circle that was punched out and then popped up onto the doily with dimensionals. This was such a fun challenge - and I can't wait to see all the fun notecards that everyone has made with this challenge - check out all the rules here : TE challenge thread at SCS

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Wishing you lots of cupcakes and fun today and everyday!!! LOL!!!!
Ciao for now,
Sankari :)
