Taylored Expressions Sketch 153

It's time again for another Taylored Expressions Sketch!  As always, we have a great sketch from Sankari for you to try!  Here are the deets:

We will select one featured stamper who will be awarded "Top Chef" honors. Your design and blog will be featured on Taylor's blog during the following week's sketch challenge.

Here's everything you need to know in order to participate:

1. Create a card using the sketch as inspiration. Feel free to switch up the shape or size of your card. As long as your project follows the general sketch, you’re good to go! You may play as many times as you want. Each upload will be entered into our weekly drawing, so the more you create - the better chance you have of winning the PRIZE!

2. Upload your project to Taylor's blog, using In Linkz before 8pm PST on Thursday, March 8th. If you also choose to upload your creation to online galleries (like over on SCS), use the keyword TESC153

3. You’re not required to use TE Stamps on your project, but we love it when you do! And if you’re drawn as our weekly winner and you’ve used TE Stamps on your project you’ll get a little sumpin’ sumpin’ extra (see below)!


1. We will randomly select one person from all of the challenge uploads to receive a $10 gift certificate to the TE Store!

2. If you used predominantly TE Stamps on your project you’ll receive an extra $10 bonus for a total $20 gift certificate to the TE Store.

Also, remember to use keyword tayloredexpressions whenever you upload your TE creations. This will include you in the TE customer gallery over on SCS!

I pulled out one of my favorite sets (who am I kidding, they are all my favorites) called In the Clouds from TE.  It's great because it has a matching die set called Blimps and Banners Die set.  And of course I had to use my Cloud Border die as well ;)

 Stamps:  In the Clouds
Ink:  SU Dusty Durango, SU Tangerine Tango, SU Lucky Limeade, SU Pool Party, Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Paper:  MME Stella & Rose Mabel, buttercream
Accessories:  TE Blimps & Banners die set, TE Cloud Border die, sponge, MME Mabel ribbon & brad, foam tape
