It’s time for the Baker’s Dozen Studio Challenge.  This is a monthly opportunity for the Taylored Expressions team to share what makes our stamping studios hum.  Each month we  have a fun, crafty question so we can share our favorites, some tips and tricks, stamping advice and more.

 The theme for April is:

Mix & Match!  TE stamp sets are designed with plenty of images and sentiments so they are “self-contained” for lots of creativity, but sometimes it’s fun to mix and match several different sets for even more possibilities.

Your challenge is to create a project using three or more TE stamp sets.

Spring is here and Summer is right around the corner and with it comes Mother’s Day, Graduations, birthdays and weddings.  I wanted to make a card that felt fresh for one of these occasions.  I used Lavender Bouquet, Make It Amazing, and Make It Memorable (March SOTM) for the sentiment.   I also used the Picket Fence Border die and Flower Box Sprigs and Flowers to help create my scene.    

When I combine stamp sets I first look for a main image and follow it up with accents and sentiments.   I think the butterflies in Make It Amazing are really pretty and perfect for the background.    I realize that the sentiment in Make It Memorable was only available as the SOTM in March (see why you should subscribe? lol!) but I love how it fit my card.  It would be easy to replace the sentiment with one that fits your occasion.


Be sure to see what the rest of the Baker’s Dozen came up with!
