I’d also like to share with you a little bit about the Taylored Expressions stamps. They are unmounted, deeply etched rubber
in a *cute* shade of pink
! One of the most valuable features of the TE stamps is that they come on EZ Mount cling cushion (which has a lifetime guarantee) and they are already die cut
. Each set will come
closely trimmed so there is no need to spend your time cutting out the images from a sheet of rubber! The stamps can be used with one of our gridline acrylic blocks for perfect placement. P.S. I took this photo with black ink on the stamp for better visibility. There will be three stamp sets for the debut of Stamp a Sweet Impression
: Sweet Celebration, Trick or Sweet, and Frightful Night. Today I want to show you a few sneak peeks using
the two Halloween sets. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! I love the decorations, the cute costumes, and all of the sweet treats… it was definitely a holiday invented for those with a *sweet* tooth (that’s totally me!). For this first sneak peek I grabbed my Copic Markers and got to coloring. I wanted to create a scene of trick-or-treaters outside a haunted house. I masked each of the cupcakes as I stamped on down the line. The cardstock, patterned paper, and ribbon are from the Halloween Key Ingredients kits(more info on that soon!). I used the Stampin’ Up 1 1/4″ and 1 3/8″ circle punches for the sentiment. My
second sneak peek uses images from the Frightful Night set. I grabbed my Copic markers again for this card. The images are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black
ink. Then I used my Xacto knife to cut a slit in the side of the chimney. I inserted the sentiment behind the house so when you pull on the little tab, out comes the rest of the sentiment “Ghoulish Greetings” (see closeup below). The bats are punched out and popped up with foam tape. I covered the windows with Glossy Accents
and added Crystal Stickles
to the moon. The cardstock I used on this card is also from the Halloween Key Ingredients. What are these Key Ingredients I keep talking about? I am so super excited that each new stamp release will be complimented by Key Ingredients. The Key Ingredients packages will be sold separately from the stamp sets and will include coordinating cardstock, patterned paper, and embellishments… everything you need to make the perfect “batch” of cupcake cards! The Halloween Key Ingredients come with 8 sheets of 8.5″ x 11″cardstock (2 each of purple, green, orange, and
black), 16 sheets of 6″ x 6″ patterned paper (4 of each pattern pictured), 5 yards of coordinating ribbon (1 yard each of 5 different styles), 1/2 oz. of Black Ice glitter, and 50 assorted brads (green, black, purple, orange, and silver). Thanks for stopping by on the first day of sneak peeks! Stay tuned tomorrow for the introduction of the Rotating Design Team and sneak peeks with the Sweet Celebration set!
Don’t forget to check out the sneak peeks from the Senior Design Team (their blogs are linked above). Hope you all have a wonderful day!
