It's a BIG Party!

Hello everyone!

Today is a big day! It's Taylored Expressions 10th birthday! I'm delighted to be joining a group of very talented designers to celebrate the day. You can find all of the details on the Taylored Expression's blog HERE.

And of course it wouldn't be a birthday bash without a birthday card!

I used a couple of stamp sets for this card. I used the fun Party Streamers stamp set to create a rainbow background using various colors of TE stamp pads. I then cut out the panel using the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets. I also cut out an accent panel from Woodgrain Textured Cardstock (white) using the Stitched Circle Stacklets.

For the main image and sentiment I pulled out one of my favorite critter stamp sets: Peek-a-boo Birthday.

I stamped the cat and party hat with black ink and colored with Copic markers. I accented the images with a white gel pen and cut out with the coordinating dies. The sentiment was stamped in black ink on vellum and attached to the card with the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher (itty bitty staple). I then assembled the card... lots of foam tape was used! ;)

For a final touch I added a few clear jelly rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by! I highly recommend checking out the rest of the talented artists taking part in the birthday bash. I've seen their cards and they are amazing!

And finally, congratulations to Taylored Expressions on their 10th birthday! Such an amazing accomplishment and it has been a delight to participate over the years as a designer and then as an illustrator!
