TE Release Day: Grouchy but Sitting Pretty

It's release day at Taylored Expressions!!  Everything you have seen this week is now available! But first, I have two more peeks at this release.

Guess what?!!  Another Grumplings set!!  And this one is just plain "grouchy" - it's Grouchy Grumplings 2.

LOVE this guy!!  And the saying is too perfect!!  I brushed on a little blue for the sky and a little green for the ground. Then a big branch for that guy and a dark cloud over his head!

This set is full of all of the charming grumpiness we've come to expect.  Parades are rained on. Chill pills are taken.  They are generally in a baaaaad mood!!

Here's the supply list for this card but be sure to keep reading for one more card!

I wanted to do a bit more with the Sitting Pretty Accessories and Sitting Pretty frames that I used here on Monday.  The fun of this set are the groupings that you can do.  (If you haven't seen it, check out the inspiration for this set on the TE Blog.)  For this card, I used a frame and then a variety of pieces from Sitting Pretty Accessories.

I had the general idea for the card with one word framed plus the "&". I looked through past sets and found the get well sentiment in Simply Succulents Stamp & Die Combo then found "hugs" as part of a sentiment in Love Always Wins Stamp & Die Combo.

I added the ledge and then grouped some of the other pieces from the accessories set.  I am in love with these sets of dies and see them as a foundation for many future cards!

Don't forget to head over to the TE Blog for links to all of the designers and to find out if you won a prize if you've been answering the Question of the Day. Then head to the TE Store because it's now open!!

Those grumplings crack me up. How is it that they manage to say what we sometimes think?! Though DH is sometimes grumpy for grumpy's sake, lol!! What fun stamps, and I love what you've done with them. Your second card is such a perfect get-well wish! What sweet colors and your design is just right. I do like them both very much! Awesome cards. Bev

Oh my! Your grumpling's card is fabulous and yes, I may have had precisely that attitude a time or twelve! The owl's face cracks me up and how cute his stripey tummy! Your second: spirit-lifting guaranteed! Such a sweet assortment of images...
