TE September Stamp of the Month + Key Ingredients

Hello! Welcome to the Taylored Expressions September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! I combined the September Stamp of the Month (Sending Smiles) with the September Key Ingredients (featuring patterned paper from the We R Memory Keepers Chalkboard collection) to make a card.

As we continue the month-long Birthday Bash at Taylored Expressions, we have some fun birthday  gifts to give. Each of the designers on today's hop will be giving away the card they are showcasing to one lucky reader. If you like the card I've made for today, simply leave a comment here on my blog before 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 12th and you'll be entered into a drawing to win it.  Winners will be announced on the TE blog on Friday morning.

Detail shot:

Here's a look at the Stamp of the Month & Key Ingredients (available together as a Deluxe Subscription):

There are also coordinating dies available separately here:

Still on the fence? The From Me to You Stamp/Die set that was shown last week during our September release is still available for FREE with a $50 purchase through 9/15 while supplies last. So, you could subscribe to SOTM and/or KI and bump up your order to $50 and get the $17 value set for free. A Deluxe Subscription in the US is $39, so if you add the coordinating die, you'd automatically qualify for the free set. For more information about all TE kit subscriptions, please visit the TE store here.
