This is pretty exciting!
I'm one of two guest designers for the Sketch Challenge at Taylored Expressions today!
The sketch is above, along with my take on it. It was definitely a fun sketch. I used a Sizzix original die to make the pink border, and the stamp set is "Chillax" by Taylored Expressions. The "Happy Birthday" is from the TE set "It's a Banner Day 1". I started this card with the idea it would be for Eric's birthday, since today he celebrates his 35th!!! Happy Birthday, honey! Eric loves to test out new and different mixed drink recipes with his Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker I got him for Christmas. However, the color scheme didn't really fit a masculine card, so I opted for a different card that I will post later (at least after I give it to him!)
Please come to Splitcoaststampers and play along with the challenge!!! Here are the details about the challenge (and the potential prize!) from Taylor:
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 Splitcoaststampers before 8pm PST on Thursday, May 26th using keyword TESC138. Feel free to come back to this thread and link your creation, however, make sure you’ve uploaded it using the correct keyword as that’s how we’ll choose the winner.
3. You’re not required to use TE Stamps on your project, but I 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 here on SCS!
