Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #60


Happy Friday! So, have you heard the awesome news from Taylored Expressions? Well, if you haven't here it is...Taylor is debuting the first ever Key Ingredients Subscription! How cool is that? If you've never ordered the key ingredients before then you are really missing out. They come with coordinating patterned paper, cardstock and embellishments all in one value-packed kit handpicked by Taylor! Kits will be released on the 20th of each month. Make sure to check out Taylor's blog for all the details on this awesome deal! Also, each month there will be a KI Subscriber’s Challenge included in your kit and you will have until the 25th of that month to upload your card and link it back to my blog to be entered into the monthly prize drawing. Of course playing is totally optional, but we just can’t wait to see what you come up with! The challenge for this kit is to make anything but a card and to use one of the chipboard buckles. So, I decided to embellish a cute tall gable box. I love these favor boxes! I used the Branching Out set and colored everything in with my Copics and added some glitter on the leaves. I really like how it turned out. Also, don't forget to check out my fellow Baker's Dozen DT member's blog to see what they did with the challenge.

Once, I finished the box I decided I needed to make a coordinating card. I used the new key ingredients on this too. The sketch is this week's Taylored Expression Cupcake Challenge. I think it's an awesome sketch. So if you want to play along in the Cupcake Challenge here are all the details.
1.You're not required to use cupcakes for the challenge, but if you got 'em why not use 'em!? :)
2.You're welcome to create something other than a card, just stick as closely to the sketch as possible and you'll be eligible for the prize drawing!
3.If you're uploading to Splitcoast use keyword TECC60 (for Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge 60 or link your creation on this post.
4.Each week, I plan to have a Featured Cupcake Sampler! The cutest and most creative sample from the previous week will receive the featured cupcake sampler honors. The winner will receive the sketch ahead of time in order to create a card that will be featured along with a link to your blog on Cupcake Friday!
5.Featured Cupcake Sampler this week is Jan Tapler from JanTapler Designs.
