TECC62: Leave a Lasting Impression-Sneak Peek Day 1

TECC62 bloom in vase

Happy Cupcake Friday y’all!   I have a really long post to share, you don’t want to miss any of the great information or inspiring stamped creations at the bottom of my post!

For my Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge card today, I have a sneak peek to show you of the new Whimsical Wishes set Fresh Flowers, illustrated by Nancy McKinney.  You will soon see this is a lovely set for Mother’s Day and other occasions as well, making it a versatile addition to your stamping arsenal.  I used the floral vase and just one of the many flowers & bouquets to make a simple Mother’s Day card.  I used the new Mother’s Day Key Ingredients which are an assortment of prism papers (solid colors), wonderful patterned paper by Crate Paper Blue Hill Collection, 5 yummy yards of ribbon, an assortment of shimmery flowers, and a package of Kaisercraft clear rhinestones.  You can see pictures of it all on Taylor’s blog.  I also added some fun Ivory flower soft to the center of the bloom, which Taylor sells in her store.


How about a sweet Spring Treat? Taylor is giving away a FREE Tiny Twinkles to one random winner from among all the people who upload their sketch challenge cards to Paper CraftPlanet using the same TECC62 keyword. So hop on over and upload your card at PaperCraftPlanet and you could be the winner of some cute twinkle bling! Its as easy as that!!!   Be sure to leave a comment on Taylor’s blog and leave a link to your blog post or gallery upload using the Mr. Linky service so she can check it out!  You must have your creation uploaded by Monday, April 6 at 10:00 a.m. CST to be eligible for the featured cupcake sampler honors. Lastly, be sure to have FUN creating!
