11 years and counting at Taylored Expressions!

Since  Taylored Expressions is celebrating 11 years, let’s keep this party rolling! 🙂

This first card features the new Birthday Background, Birthday Basics, Simple Strips – Birthday and the previously released Hip Hop Bunny. If you have followed my taste in humor, you know this card absolutely puts me in stitches!! I laugh all over when I see this again!  🙂

The Hip Hop Bunny alone, with his oh so pleased look–and then insult to injury, Another Year Closer to Velcro shoes–I cannot stop laughing!

The TE Blender Brushes made super quick work of this background of course, and I love that easy blend with the TE dye inks. His little hat all tipped completes his look of great *joy*! I threw some silver thread behind him and added some stitching, as always. I just think he’s a riot. Hot Stuff. I die.

Next up, I have a silly little number using the new Big Grumpy sentiment and the previously released Little Monsters.

The weirdest thing about this card is how that blended background sort of glows in person. I don’t even know how I did it and I’ll likely never accomplish that again. ha!! This Here Comes the Sun stencil with the Taylored Expressions Blending Brushes and dye inks is delightful.

I have the perfect friend to send this one to! ❤

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

Taylored Expressions: May Mini Release!

Welcome to a fun extra post for Taylored Expressions May Mini Release! All the new products for this cute release are available over at Taylored Expressions now!

My first card features the NEW Little Monsters stamp set. These little guys are so silly!

eeeeep! How cutie are they? I made a fun and splashy watercolor background by adding water to the panel and then dropping Taylored Expressions watercolors on there.

I love the fun bright colors on this one! 🙂

My second card features the new Inky Fingers: Monsters set. I think these little fingerprint sets are the sweetest and so does our son! He’ll be getting inky sometime soon to make some cards for his Dad and Grandpas! 🙂

Love these little guys peeking out! I was intending to put google eyes on them, of course, and then forgot! ha! I am actually going to give this one to our son. shhhhh! 🙂

Both of these new sets are perfect for making Father’s Day cards, but I also completely enjoy that you can use them for any occasion or even for no occasion at all! 🙂 *Just Because* is my favorite occasion. 🙂
