Taylored Expressions is introducing a new monthly challenge for the design team: The Baker's Dozen Studio Challenge. This will be an opportunity for us to share what makes our stamping studios hum. Each month we will have a fun, crafty question so we can share our favorites, some tips and tricks, stamping advice and more.
The question for July is:
You are stranded on a desert island. The good news is that you find a fabulous stamping hut well-stocked with papers, inks and other stamping supplies, however you only have the 5 stamp sets you brought with you in the luggage you managed to salvage. So tell us, what stamps sets did you bring and why?
Well I have to say it was really hard to just pick five stamp sets!! I decided to go with five sets that I LOVE to play with, but also had a variety of sentiments that allow me to create cards for many occasions.
My first stamp I chose was What's Cookin'? It is one of my all time favorites, with great sentiments, and I figured if I am on a desert island my gifts may have to be food gifts!
I stamped the apron from the stamp set and colored with Copics and hand cut it out. I die cut the dress part of the apron from patterned paper, and the pocket with the Apron & Pocket die. I colored the oven mitt and cut it out with dies from the Kitchen Accessories die set.
The apron is mounted on paper cut with the Frame It Up 1 die and the scalloped border is cut with the Scalloped Eyelet Border.
I also made a tag to dress up any food gift with another stamp and sentiment from What's Cookin'?. I mixer is paper pieced and I used the Frame it up 1 Die as the base for my tag.
The second set I am taking along with me is Love Grows Here. I love images of trees and you can really use this set all year long. Here is a card I made with the set a while back and you can find all the details here.
My third choice is Rosey Posie. This stamp set is just os pretty! Here is gift card set from a previous post.
Okay, so now it is getting really hard to narrow it down! The fourth set I am taking with me is Friendship Blooms. I love all the flower options in this set and it work well with many of the sentiments in the other sets I am bringing.
And last, but certainly not least, I decided to take Hangin' Out, perfect for lots and occasions and it just fun and whimsical!
I am excited to hop along and see what sets the other Baker's Dozen Design Team Members picked to take long on their desert island!!
