Taylored Expressions is Celebrating 11!

Happiest of craftastic Birthdays to Taylored Expressions –TE is celebrating 11 years! And lucky us, we get to party! 🙂

This first card features the new Big Grumpy Stamp & Die Combo, Big Grumpy – Birthday and Big Cake. This bear speaks my language! 🙂 The sentiments in this set are SO FUN!! 🙂

Isn’t he soooo funny with his grumpy little face and this sentiment—TOO fun! The background with the candles from Big Cake is a perfect accent the “bonfire” feel. haaaaa!

He looks all innocent on this pink card–I find that a laugh in itself.  😉

Next up, I have a fun new card using the Party Pennants Background and Simple Strips – Birthday. 

If you are unfamiliar with the Simple Strips Background, I highly recommend checking them out because they are ingenious and awesome. And this one works with the original die. This is the new one, Simple Strips – Birthday.

I also used the new die, Caps Lock – YAY, which is right up my alley–because I love this simple block font. I colored the background with Copics and added some stitching for a fun little touch. 🙂 A shout out to my sewing machine for being good and not messing up my cards on the last step. I mean, it has happened, but I am guessing it is generally a user error? Maybe? Wink.

I used the Petite Scalloped dies for both of these too! 🙂

Be sure to check out all the goodness the Creative Team has made to celebrate TE’s 11 years!! 🙂
