It is hard to believe that Taylored Expressions is celebrating their 4th Birthday! We have so much to show you this month, our biggest release ever with 17 new stamps and stamp sets and 7 new dies and die sets, and we have extended our Birthday Bash into 5 full days of inspiration.

I am starting my release projects off with one of the Belated Birthday A la Carte, A Little Slow. The image stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa Ink and colored with Copics and I added grass with colored pencils. My clouds are cut out with the Cloud Duo Dies. I used one of the buckles in the die set being release this month, Basic Buckles. My papers are from My Minds Eye Gnome Sweet Gnome. The sentiment is from the set. 

On the inside I added the second half of the sentiment.

Just look at all the Belated Birthday A la Cartes! You will be able to get one FREE with a $50 purchase. Details will be posted on the current specials page.

Next I have a really sweet card to share with you using the new You Take the Cake Stamp set. This is Taylored Expressions first ever sampler set showcasing the designs of all of our illustrators. This set will not be available for sale until after the October release but for now it will be free with any purchase of $150 or more. This is the perfect birthday set; there is something or everyone! 

Taylor is having a fun contest. Just go to Taylor's blog post today to get all the contest details, guess which designer contributed which image to be entered into a drawing for two stamp sets of their choice.

I had a lot of fun decorating my cake. And I love the new Curly Border being release this month!

I colored with Copics and went to town decorating with rhinestones, Liquid Pearls, and glitter.

On the inside I added a sentiment and another image from the stamp set.
