Please scroll down for my Your Next Stamp Sneak Peek!
It's time for the Baker's Dozen Studio Challenge. This is a monthly opportunity for the Taylored Expressions team to share what makes our stamping studios hum. Each month we have a fun, crafty question so we can share our favorites, some tips and tricks, stamping advice and more.
The theme 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.
What a fun challenge! I had already thought about pairing the adorable farm scene from Made in the Shade with a couple of images from Green Acres, so I started with those two sets. I colored up the darling pig and used the fun "hay there" sentiment from Green Acres. I stamped the sentiment on a Banner Stacklets 1 Die. Then I saw this super cute wheelbarrow image from Welcome Gnome and used it to complete my scene:)
I haven't made a gift bag in a while, so I decided to use the Fancy Gift Bag file from the Silhouette Online Store. I added some barn wood looking dp and the pretty pink polka dot dp from the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss paper pack. I also added some ribbon from the January 2013 KI Ribbon Bundle. Here's a close up of these sweet images:
Make sure you check out what sets the rest of the Baker's Dozen used together! I always look forward to their creativity:) Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific Tuesday!
