Happy Cupcake Friday, Y’all! I can’t believe the weeks are just whizzing by! We’ve had a record number of 100+ temperatures but we actually finally got some rain Wednesday evening and it cooled down some, it was nice! Today’s card is brought to you by the July 20th key ingredient subscription from Taylored Expressions! It's currently sold out but click here if you'd like to be notified when it's available. It’s a new, fresh collection of Early Bird Cosmo Cricket papers and fun embellishments to coordinate (with the exception of the buttons, I borrowed them from my basic grey collection). The stamp set I used is Beary Special Accessories (it’s so fun to be able to use an accessories set as a main set, no?) I used a trio of fun birthday images: party hat, present and balloon peeking through to the inside of the card below:
I thought it would be fun to stamp the images on the inside and have peek-through windows – it was a little bit of work with all the layers I did, but I pulled it off and I love the end result!
Here is Taylor’s sketch for you to try - be sure to leave a comment on Taylor’s blog with the direct link to your blog post or gallery upload using the Mr. Linky service so she can check it out! You're always welcome to play with any of these sketches at any time, but you have one week to make a card and link your creation on her blog in order to be considered for the Featured Cupcake Sampler (by Friday, July 31st at 10am CST)!
Be sure to check out the Cupcake Crew’s Creations who, no doubt, will have some fabulous eye candy for you in various stamping styles (I just love it!)
Our featured sampler today is the talented Alex Maldonado who created this oh so adorable Teddy Bear card that captured Taylor’s eyes as well as a this super cute & funny shark-shaped card! I know she will have something delightful today too!
Have a ‘sweet’ day and weekend!
