The Big SASI Release!

Can you believe that the release is already upon us??? This has been a whirlwind week, that's for sure! If you haven't, stop by Taylor's blog to see all the details of tonight's release. After that you may then proceed to the Taylored Expressions store to buy all of these adorable stamps and paper sets! :D You must then make sure to see all the other design team members' blogs! I know...lots of hopping to do tonight! Hehe!

Anyway, I used today's (or tomorrow, however you look at it) Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge for this card. I will admit that I REALLY struggled with this sketch. I wanted to use one of the adorable cuppies but couldn't figure out how to get them to fit. I ended up using Mr. Smooch cuppie again along with the "smooches" sentiment. Both are in the Love is Kind set. I also struggled as to what to put in the other two circles so I pulled out my new SU! heart punch (from the Love You Much bundle) and layered some hearts. I then tied some Riding Hood Red ribbon around the middle of the card and added some glitter! This card is a whole lot more sparkly IRL. I couldn't get it to show up well in the picture. It just looks like streaks. Haha! Anyway, all of the paper and glitter found on this card can be found in the fabulous Valentine Key Ingredients Kit! Isn't that paper amazing??? Well, that's all the blabbering I am going to do.
