Taylored Expressions Release Day and a Challenge!

Today is the day ladies!! How exciting...all stamps are available right now over at Taylored Expressions! I can't wait for you guys to see all the stamps. So, today I am featuring three sets. The first sample is from the new Whimsical Wishes line called "For the Love of Cupcakes". This set will leave you drooling!! I made a card with the cupcake die cut card that is part of the Cupcake Bundle. Seriously, this bundle is so worth it because all the extras are SUPER cute! The glitter stickers on the inside of the card and heart on the cherry are also part of the bundle. All other accessories like card stock, ribbon, and patterned paper are part of the Cupcake Key Ingredients. Love them too! So, next up is a combination of two sets. The cute teddy is part of the WW "Beary Special" set that is also available today and the new line Lasting Impressions called "Faith & Hope". This special set includes tons of beautiful inspirational quotes and Bible verses for encouragement during tough times. I also combined it with this week's Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge. I love this sketch. To create the this card I also used the May 20th Key Ingredients. Only the vellum and rhinestones are not part of the kit. Well, that's all for today but don't forget to check out the new stamps, the rest of the Baker's Dozen creations, and the Cupcake Sampler crew. Whew! Lots of eye candy today :)


If you want to play along in the Cupcake Challenge here are all the details you need to know.
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 TECC71 (for Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge 71 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!
