Taylored Expression Stamp 'n Send Challenges

We've got our final World Card Making Day Stamp n' Send Challenge for you! Remember, if you've missed our other challenges, there is still time to play along, so check out the Taylored Expressions Member Forum for all the details.

Everyone needs a little encouragement now and again to get them past a hump in life. There are also those times to truly celebrate, those milestones and achievements that couldn't have been done without the support of those we love. We are challenging you to send either some encouragement to someone who needs it or some congratulations to someone who deserves it! To help you out, we've got a totally cute and fun Inspiration Photo from our very own Taylor Van Bruggen! She is the creative genius behind Taylored Expressions and she has this wonderful image to get you inspired!


So, to be entered into this week's challenge prize drawing for a $10 Gift Certificate to the Taylored Expressions Store , simply follow these challenge requirements:

~Use Taylor's Inspiration Photo and create an ENCOURAGEMENT or CONGRATULATIONS card
~SEND your card to someone who needs a positive nudge or who deserves some kudos!
~Come back to this thread and leave a comment telling us who you sent your card to, along with a photo of your card or a link to a photo of your card

It's that easy! For EVERY card you create following the challenge requirements, you will be entered into this week's prize drawing. PLUS, for EVERY entry, you will also be entered into the Grand Prize drawing for an amazing prize package worth $100!


Here is my card based on the inspiration photo. I colored one of the cute bird houses from the Bird Nests Stamp Set with Copic Markers. I cut the fence with the Picket Fence Border Die out of corrugated paper.


I used a glue pen to add a little glitter to the leaves.


I cut the three leaves in the Mini Leaves Die Set from fall colored cardstock. The I sponged on Tim Holtz Distress Ink in fall colors. A button and twine finish off the card.




Thanks for stopping by! Hope you get a chance to play along with the Stamp 'n Send Challenges. Who doesn't love to get a handmade card in the mail!
