TECC56: It's Magically Delicious!!


Happy Cupcake Friday, y'all! It is a great day - totally looking forward to a weekend full of fun stamping time!! I am so excited about the next Taylored Expressions release, aren't you? Just wait until you see the awesome things she has planned for us for the March release!! Meanwhile, I am still having so much fun stamping A Year of Sweets! (1 here) with St. Paddy's Day Cuppie! I love this layout, and thought using different green designer papers from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie would be fun along with matching brads! The dark cardstock used is a much neglected color in my stamp area, Handsome Hunter. Cuppie was colored with peerless watercolors. The treat package is Green Apple licorice, which tastes real good!! We found it at a brand new supermarket here (I sure was like a kid in a candy store because the candy section sure caught my sweet tooth!) I just put them in a cello gusset bag & wrapped the belly band around it. The green crystals are by Zva Creative, which you can get at Taylored Expressions.

Here is a close-up of the Copic spica atyou pen sparkle! It's just 'magical' isn't it??

Here is Taylor’s sketch so you can play along too!! You can be eligible to win Cupcake Sampler Honors & be featured on Taylor’s blog using the next Cupcake Friday Sketch! You’re not required to use cupcakes on your sketch, but if you got ‘em why not use ‘em?? You can create something other than a card but try to keep as close to the sketch as possible. If you’re uploading to Splitcoast, please use keyword TECC56. Leave a comment on Taylor’s post with a link to your blogpost or gallery link so she can check it out! You must have your creation uploaded by Monday, February 23 at 10:00 a.m. CST to be eligible for the featured cupcake sampler honors. Lastly, be sure to have FUN creating!
