Hello everyone and welcome to the Taylored Expressions September Stamp of the Month Hop!! The Baker's Dozen DT is teaming up with the Key Ingredients DT to showcase the September SOTM called Sending Smiles and the September Key Ingredients Kit!!. 

The Stamp of the Month and the Key Ingredients Kit are monthly subscriptions with three options. You can read all about it here in the Kit Department of the Taylored Expressions Store. 

This is a fantastic time to subscribe to the SOTM and /or KI because the From Me To You Stamp/Die set is still available for FREE with a $50.00 purchase through 9/15 while supplies last. Sooooo, if you subscribe to the SOTM and  KI (Delux Kit) for $39.00 and bump up the order to $50.00 (maybe with the coordinating dies) you can get the the $17.00 From Me To You set Free....how cool is that!!!!!


From Me To You Set Free with $50.00 order until 9/15
This is the Delux Set which includes the September SOTM and the Key Ingredients Kit


The coordinating dies for the SOTM called This Way To Smiles is not included in the Delux Set 


As we continue the month-long Birthday Bash at Taylored Expressions, we have some fun birthday  gifts to give.  Each of the designers in 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.


The flower and leaf stamp was stamped several times on the right side of the card with Memento London Fog. The leaves were all watercolored with Pistachio Pudding and Coastal Cabana using an Aqua Pen. The same stamp was stamped on  a piece of Choice Snow White card stock and colored with Copics. The flowers were adhered to the card base and then the top panel made with papers from the September Key Ingredients Kit, twine and a button, was adhered over the flowers. Two water colored leaves were popped up and curled out for a little dimension. The sentiment from the same set was stamped with Memento London Fog. 



How about a little inspiration from the AWESOME Baker's Dozen DT and the Key Ingredients DT...check it out!!!
