Taylored Expressions September Studio Challenge!

Please scroll down for my Your Next Stamp After Party Post:)

Hello!  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 or theme so we can share our favorites, some tips and tricks, stamping advice and more!

The theme for September is:
We’re continuing our month-long TE Birthday Bash celebration with a special birthday-inspired Studio Challenge! Sometimes all we need to help us create is to simply see something that is beautiful, cool, or unique. Did you know that Taylored Expressions has over 30 boards on Pinterest filled with crafty eye-candy? We’d love to have you follow us at http://pinterest.com/tayloredexpress

Today’s challenge: choose a photo from Taylor’s Birthday Inspiration Pinterest Board to inspire a stamped creation!

It was so hard to choose, but I decided to go with this darling farm cake for my inspiration:

Here's what I came up with:

I used the adorable TE set Green Acres along with some fabulous Build a Scene Dies to create a fun farm scene:)  I stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copics.  I then cut them out and popped them up with foam tape over my rolling hills that I cut using the Build a Scene Rolling Hills Dies.  I added the sun using the Build a Scene Sunshine Dies and stamped the sentiment directly onto the sun.  The dp I used is My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Breeze.  

Here are my supplies:

There are several ways for you to join us this month AND four winners will be chosen at random from all contest entries to win a copy of the 2013 Taylored Expressions Catalog & Idea Book (a $9.95 value)! One Grand Prize winner will be chosen at random from all eligible entries to receive a copy of the 2013 TE Catalog & Idea Book AND a TE Stamp set of winner's choice!!!  

This catalog is FABULOUS!!!  It is so full of inspiration and beautiful photos. I squealed when I first saw it and I know you will too!  Check out the Taylored Expressions Blog to see how you can enter!
