TE Release Day: Valentine Grumplings

Hello, crafty friends -

Today is the day when all of the new Taylored Expressions pretties are available for purchase. I’ve added a few items to my shopping list. How about you?

I haven’t had a ton of time to craft the last couple of weeks as I was buried under a few illustrating projects, traveling for Thanksgiving, and doing some serious Christmas shopping. But I had to give some loving on the new Valentine Grumplings stamp set. I was a very happy illustrator when Taylor okayed this set after the release of Party Grumplings was a success. Hint hint – if you want to see more Grumplings in the future you know what to do. Lol. ;)

For my first two cards I used the bat and pig images. Love the coordinating sentiments the team developed. This are small cards, with the base measuring 4.25” tall by 2.75” wide.


The images were colored with Copic markers and I did a bit of paper piecing with designer paper.


I kept the embellishments simple and just used a bit of burlap ribbon (May Arts) and  a few enamel dots (My Mind’s Eye).


I have yet another card, this time a full size one that features the adorable stinky skunk. One little flower is not going to do the job of covering your aroma. ;)


I colored the image and cut out. Used a couple of designer papers, washi tape and just a bit of Salt Water Taffy cardstock. The little green heart was cut out using a die from the Build-a-Tag 2 die set. Finished with a couple of pink rhinestones.

Thanks for visiting, crafty friends! If you'd like to see more projects and new product information, please head over to the TE Blog for a complete blog roll of our participating designers!
