today i am excited to join over 40 taylored expressions past & present design team members in celebrating TE's 10th birthday! to celebrate this awesome occasion TE released several new products last night which are all available now in the TE shop.
for today's birthday blog hop i've created a magical card with one of my favorite previously released TE stamp sets. and don't forget to head over to the TE blog for a list of everyone participating in the birthday blog hop - so many fun cards have been created especially for today.
my card features a dragon from the previously released magical day stamp & die combo. he was paper pieced with a bunch of scraps & i added a bit of glitter to his wings & tummy. for the background of clouds i used the set the scene - clouds stencil strips. so that the clouds would be in a circular region i die cut a large circle from a piece of scrap paper & attached it to the card base. then i used the cloud stencils to apply ink inside the cut out circle. the sentiment was stamped in ink colors that perfectly matched my dragon - earl grey premium ink & pineapple premium ink. to complete my card i added a few sugar cube enamel shapes along the bottom row of clouds.
at the heart of Taylored Expressions is a mission to share joy through the gift of handmade cards. as part of their 10th birthday TE is continuing that mission with the launch of a special Share Joy campaign focused on providing birthday cards to those in nursing homes and assisted-living facilities across the U.S. to make as deep an impact as possible TE is inviting card makers everywhere to join the campaign. will you join us? find out how to participate by viewing their Share Joy page here: https://www.tayloredexpressions.com/share-joy-birthday-2018
