Ta(i)lored sketch

Woohoo I found Taylored Expressions blog! Well, not exactly found, 'cause I've heard about it for a while, but I didn't bother to look as I thought one has to play with the brand stamps to be able to participate... apparently not! *grin*
This week's sketch (TESC 90) is lovely, and so I made two entries lol!

The first one is yet another Christmas project (I'm having SO much fun making Holiday cards this year!)


The theme suits very conveniently two current "seasonal" challenges:
- Merry and Bright over at Charisma Cardz;
- and Challenge #41 - Snow at Crafty Creations (I trust that snowflakes count!)

I used Olive ink for stamping, and I added a little dimension by raising the circular panel on the mounting tape. I think the combination of tealy blue and olive works beautifully :)

The other card is quite different:


Can you see all that sparkly yumminess on the cupcake? I think that's enough to have the card entering Glitter Me Silly at Cute Card Tuesday :)
The idea for this project came from the Picture This challenge at 365 Cards. We've been given the most delicious photo of a cupcake with pink frosting. I tried to recreate that look, but nothing is going to beat the one from the picture!!
I'm also giving another go for Quixotic Challenge #2: Stitching with this one. Again, I used my favourite faux stitching technique.

I got quite a few challenges covered with these two... As much as I hate "using" my cards like this, it's very convenient when there are so many of them (and all oh-so-tempting lol!), and so little time...

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you'll come back later for I'm most definitely not calling it a day yet! :)
