Baker's Dozen November Studio Challenge!


Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!

It’s Black Friday and it's time for the Baker's Dozen Studio Challenge and a BIG Black Friday Sale at Taylored Expressions!

The question for November is:
As crafters, we often talk about a hand-crafted Christmas. How much stamping do you do for the holidays?  Do you mail hand-stamped cards, make gift packaging, tags, handmade gifts?  Or do you stamp year-round, but not so much for Christmas?  Please show us some handmade tags and share a tip or two on how to keep stamping fun for the holidays.

We are releasing a brand new set of Taylored Dies today...the Label Stacklets 3 Taylored Dies!   These new Stacklets coordinate with the Frame It Up 1 Taylored Die and I LOVE them!  I've used both the Frame It Up 1Taylored Die and the new Label Stacklets 3 Taylored Dies to create my trio of tags.  Here is a look at all of them together!

The base of each tag was created the same on all three.  I cut a piece of Kraft cardstock with the Frame It Up 1 Taylored Die and layered it onto a piece of Choice Buttercream Cardstock cut with the new Label Stacklets 3 Taylored Dies.   I used some twill ribbon on the top of each, threaded through jumbo eyelets.  I also sponged all the panels (except for the Choice Buttercream panels) with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.


Here is my first tag.  Of the three, this is my favorite.  This sweet little Cuppie is from Season's Sweetings and she has always been my most favorite Cuppie of all.  I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock, colored her with Copic Markers, fussy cut her out and popped her up with Foam Tape

I impressed the Kraft panel with the Houndstooth/Damask Taylored Impression Plate, and the patterned paper is Handmade Holiday from Simple Stories.  I cut the holly leaves using the Very Merry Outlines Taylored Dies and added three Goosebumps for the berries.  The sentiment, "Merry & Bright" is from Many Minis- Holiday, and I stamped it onto a panel cut with the Mini Tags Taylored Dies and attached it with some Hemp Cord.


Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on my tag:







Next up I used the sweet caroling Cuppie from Home Sweet Home!  I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock, colored her with Copic Markers and then cut out the panel with circle dies.  The Kraft panel was impressed with the Musical Swirls Taylored Impression Plate.

The patterned paper is from Sleigh Ride by Crate Paper.  The sentiment was stamped onto a panel cut with the Fly Your Flag 2 Taylored Die, and I created the snowflake with the Make A Snowflake Taylored Dies, topped with a Goosebump.


Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on this tag:






My last tag features the adorable reindeer cuppie from Season's Sweetings!  Like the other cuppies, I stamped him with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream, colored him with Copic Markers and fussy cut him out.  The Kraft panel was impressed with the Lots of Dots Taylored Impression Plate.  

All of the patterned papers are from All Is Bright from My Minds Eye, and the snowflake was again cut with the Make A Snowflake Taylored Die.  I added a Goosebump to the center, and the sentiment was stamped on an oval panel cut with the Label Stacklets 3 Taylored Dies.


Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on my tag:
