2. Join us on Facebook for an early reveal of all the new stamp sets Wednesday night beginning at approximately 6 pm PST. Leave comments during the party for a chance to win one of the gift certificates we’ll be giving away!

This is our biggest release ever with 17 new stamps and stamp sets + 7 new dies and die sets! Our release is SO huge that we extended our Birthday Bash into 5 full days of inspiration! 

I have 2 projects to show you today. My first uses one of the new Belated Birthday A la Carte stamps, Elephants Never Forget! We have 4 new Belated Birthday A la Cartes to compliment the original 7 that were released in 2010. They are part of the Apple Doodle Ink collection and was illustrated by Doug Applegate.

Isn't this elephant the cutest?! And I love that he is holding a yummy cupcake with his trunk! I stamped, colored with Copics and fussy cut him, then I popped him up on my layout. I paired him with some patterned paper from the October Afternoon Cakewalk collection.

I finished the inside of the card with a 2nd generation stamp of the elephant and the second part of the sentiment. See that fun border? I made it using the new Curly Border Die!

Here's a look at the new Curly Border Die:

Here's a look at all 11 of the Belated Birthday A la Cartes:

You will be able to get one of these FREE with a $50 purchase through Monday 9/10- details will be posted on the current specials page.

My second project features a stamp in the new sampler set, You Take the Cake! This set of 15 images is a first for Taylored Expressions... each of our illustrators have contributed images to this special celebration sampler set. It's perfect for our Birthday Bash!

I used the pie and friends image. Can you guess which illustrator contributed this sweet image?! Once again, I stamped, colored with Copic markers, fussy cut and popped the image onto my layout. I used October Afternoon Cakewalk papers again.

This set is definitely a must-have! It will not be on sale until after the October release. However, it is FREE with any purchase of $150 or more!

How about a contest?! Be sure to visit Taylor's blog for all the contest details - guess which illustrator contributed which image and be entered into a drawing to win TWO stamp sets of your choice!
