September TE Sneak Peeks: Party Grumplings

Hello crafty friends – I’m excited to start this week with some fun sneak peeks for the Taylored Expressions September Release. And this month’s release is extra special for the following reasons:
  • It’s TE’s sixth birthday!
  • To celebrate, along with new stamps and dies, we are releasing our very own line of patterned paper and coordinating cardstock, as well as our own Embossing Folders.
  • Visit the TE Blog for a fun sketch challenge with a $250 prize gift certificate. 

Speaking of the sketch challenge, I used it for this grumpy birthday card featuring the new Party Grumblings stamp set. I did turn the sketch on its side so twist your neck to the left a bit and you will see it. ;) There are five super grumpy critters in this set that I hope you just love. I was super excited when Taylor green lighted the rough drafts for this set as I have a list of people that will get a chuckle from these images on a birthday card. And the coordinating sentiments they came up with? So freaking funny (I did suggest one or two of them).


And here is a selfie of me with my card. Took me five zillion tries to get this picture and I still managed to give the card a trim and position myself so that I have a chair with an afghan growing out the side of my head. LOL. Can’t wait to see all of your selfies… this will be fun!


Are you wondering about this fantastic prize I mentioned earlier? For your chance to win a $250 Gift Certificate to the Taylored Expressions Store, you must complete ALL of the following:

So, if a grumpy bear is cute, how cute do you think a grumpy bunny is? How about this cute:


I used the bunny from Party Grumplings to create a little birthday tag. Perfect for that person who is forever young. Hee hee.
