Stamp a Sweet Impression - RELEASE DAY!

Stamp A Sweet Impression stamps have officially gone LIVE over at Taylored Expressions!! How exciting!! So to celebrate the launch of this amazing company I decided to enable you with some birthday goodies. The set I used is called "Sweet Celebrations". It features the cutest little cupcakes EVER! So, while play around with my birthday cupcake stamps I got a cool idea. I thought I would come up with some birthday favor ideas. I love when parties are personalized and made by hand. I think they make it extra special. So instead of a goodie bag I made a paper candy holder. I found the template online and embellished it with the Birthday Boy key ingredients. I also made a party hat. I think that is my favorite project. I cut some strips of patterned paper from the key ingredients and tied some tape on the botton. Then I used my scissors to curl them. I then adhered the curlies to the inside of the paper hat. The dots are 3D glue dots that where embellished with Taylored Expression glitter. (Also part of the kit) Lastly, I made a birthday card. I colored everything in with my copics and added glitter to the cupcakes too. I am having so much fun with these stamps! I have another cool Halloween project coming up so make sure to check back. Also, make sure to check out Taylor's blog for more enabling and stamp deets. But, first head on over to Taylored Expressions and get your new stamps!! They are going to go FAST!
