I am so delighted to get to be a part of Taylored Expressions as a Design Team member. I've watched this company grow by leaps and bounds and it's such a pleasure to get to create alongside such amazing ladies. This week, TE is celebrating its 4th birthday! We are all so excited that we are celebrating for a full five days with 17 new stamps and sets and 7 new dies and sets! I have two projects to share with you today, beginning with the one above.

I got to dig in with the wonderful new set, You Take the Cake, which is absolutely overflowing with amazing cake images, one of which is this fabulously fancy cake. This set is especially fun because ALL of TE's illustrators contributed to it -- Taylor is having a fun contest on her blog. Check it out for a chance to win 2 stamp sets!

I colored in this multi-tiered beauty with Copics and then added some glitter and dimensional accents. The Curly Border Die (my new favorite!) added a little zing next to my perfect sentiment. Now, this set won't actually be available for purchase until October because until then it's free with a $150 purchase.

Next up is actually an oldie image but a goodie, which I'm highlighting because TE is releasing a host of new Belated Birthday a la Carte stamps! For my better late than never card, I used the Oh, Nuts! set with its darling squirrel.

I colored in this sweet little guy and put him on a fun-fold card. (Simply score a 4.25" x 11" card base 2.75" in from the edge and fold.)

I decorated the inside of the card to match the outside and included the rest of the sentiment.

Don't you just want to pick up this little guy and take him home?
