TAYLORED EXPRESSIONS APRIL STUDIO CHALLENGE



Hey there, it's time for the Baker's Dozen Studio Challenge (a monthly opportunity for the DT to share what makes our stamping studios hum...each month we're asked a fun, crafty question so we can share our favorite products, tips/tricks, stamping advice and more).

The question for April is:
Mix & Match!  TE stamp sets are designed with plenty of images and sentiments so they are "self-contained" for lots of creativity, but sometimes it's fun to mix and match several different sets for even more possibilities.  Your challenge is to create a project using three or more TE stamp sets.


Easy peasy...I love mixing stamp sets!  This was a super quick and easy project using the Acrylic Block Background technique and silhouette stamps.  Lucky for me, Taylor has a lot of sets that have solid (or silhouette) stamps!  I used the sentiment from Bless Your Nest because I absolutely love the font and who couldn't use a set of thank you cards, am I right!?!  The butterfly and some of the flowers/leaves are from Make it Amazing while the balance of the flowers came from Posh Posies.  The possibilities for mixing and matching the silhouettes are endless!  I wish you could see the subtle shine from the Glimmer Mist!  The layout is SCS CAS217.
