Taylored Expressions Release Day-Cuppie Love Scenes

Today the Baker's Dozen is sharing Cuppie sweetness with the new Cuppie Love Scenes set. Think a romantic movie, the spaghetti scene from Lady and the Tramp, that sort of thing!!! Totally ADORABLE!!!  I used my Valentine Key Ingredients on my card again today...I just can't get enough of this Key Ingredients kit. All the new products are available at Taylored Expressions right now. And don't forget about the new free shipping policy for US orders of $75 or more...woo hoo!!!

Ok, on to my card. I decided to use the Cuppies on the couch image. I started by stamping the image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream, twice, then I stamped it again onto the flower pattern from my Valentine Key Ingredients. I paper pieced the couch then I cut out the Cuppies and adhered them onto the couch. Next I coloured the Cuppies and the rest of the image with copics but I paper pieced the cupcake liners. The image is cut out with rectangle Nestabilities. I added a little shimmer to the girl Cuppie's cherry with Stardust Stickles (included in the Valentine Key Ingredients) and made the hearts glossy with my clear Glaze pen.

This layout actually came about because I had the red scalloped piece already punched and I couldn't waste it. I've never based a design on a scrap before so I'm kinda proud of myself! And the sentiment was a perfect fit on the red scallop layer. I added a little red ric-rac to the base layer then coloured some chipboard (from the Valentine Key Ingredients). The heart gemstone is from the Valentine Add-on that's available at Taylored Expressions.

Tip: The chipboard arrow was too short for the heart so I just cut it in half. That way I could separate each half and make it fit the heart, and you would never have known if I didn't tell you.  :)

Let's go see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has created with Cuppie Love Scenes and the Valentine Key Ingredients then you can go shopping! We have two fab stampers joining the hop today, Jeanie Witmer our guest designer, and Jamie  Pyles creator of the fabulous clay buttons and frames.
