Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 2-Crafty Cuppie

Today the Baker's Dozen is showing you sneak peeks of a couple of different sets. I'm sharing Crafty Cuppie and Crafty Expressions and there's another prize announcement at the end, so read on.

We all love to craft, right? Well, so does Cuppie!!! Cuppie's into all sorts of crafts though, stamping, scrapbooking, knitting, sewing, and painting. This set is absolutely perfect for the crafty person in your life, or even the non-crafty person.

I intend to send this first card to my Mom, and she definitely does not have a crafty bone in her body (I'm still wondering to this day where I got my craftiness from). But, she likes to knit little square dish cloths when her and my Dad are on road trips. He drives...she knits...it's cute! My supply of dish cloths is getting low though so I thought I'd send this as a hint! Hey, maybe they should take a road trip to see me...she can get quite a few dish cloths knit on a two day drive! LOL!

I used the Sweet Stop Sketch, SSS32, for this layout. All the papers, cardstock and ribbons are from my Winnie's Walls Key Ingredients. I started by stamping Cuppie with Memento Tuxedo Black onto the patterned paper, then I stamped him again onto Choice Snow White (from the KI kit). I coloured Cuppie and the bowl of yarn with copics, cut them out and adhered them to the patterned chair with my Xyron Sticker Maker. The sentiment is from Crafty Expressions, a companion set to Crafty Cuppie. It's full of fabulous phrases that you can insert various crafty words into, like "_______ is cheaper than therapy" (insert sewing, stamping, painting, etc.). It's such a fun set! I used my Tags 5 to cut out the sentiment.

The sentiment on this next card (which is part of the Crafty Cuppie set) is kind of a crafter's motto IMO..."Do something creative every day!" LOVE it!!! And I do try to abide by that motto.

For this card I stamped Cuppie with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White, then again onto the green patterned paper from My Mind's Eye Delighted collection (so I could paper piece the cupcake liner). Then I stamped Cuppie a third time so I could cut out his paint brush and layer it over the cupcake liner. After all, the layers need to be in the proper perspective, right? The image is coloured with copics and cut out with circle Nestabilities then layered onto the largest shape in my Labels Three Nestabilities. I added some sparkle around the image with Lime Green Stickles and I couldn't wait to use my new MS star border punch. :)


Come blog hoppin' with me to see what the Baker's Dozen girls have cooked up with Crafty Cuppie and Sweet Occasions (I'll be showing this set tomorrow).

Be sure to leave some love along the way because one lucky commenter will win a Sweet Occasions stamp set!!! How cool is that?!?

All you have to do is leave a comment on each Baker's Dozen blog today for the best chance to win! One lucky winner will be chosen at random from all of the comments on one of the blogs, but the trick is that nobody knows which blog it will be! You have until 6am PST on Friday to enter. The winner will be announced on Friday morning on Taylor's blog.

Tomorrow is release day and I'll be back with a sweet card set using Sweet Expressions. See you then!
