Blast From the Past Blog Hop #5 from Taylored Expressions

Hi Everyone,.
Every month Taylor hosts a Taylored Expressions Customer Blog Hop - its such a great way to give all your Taylored Expressions stamps lots of love and at the same time, hop around and get wowed with everyone's TE creations!!!  This month's theme was to create Christmas/Holiday cards using any of the Taylored Expressions that weren't recently released. I couldn't wait to play along - I put some holiday music on and started stamping away! I used the sweetest stamp set called : Holiday Wonder and using the BFTP #5 sketch, I created this card using the papers from the Snow Day Project Pantry kit (I love the colors of this Snow Day Project Pantry - they make creating holiday cards merry & bright! :)))
I cut out a rectangle piece of with my nesties and then sponged one corner with some Summer Sky ink and then stamped the tree a few times on the bottom of the rectangle. After coloring the trees in, I cut out a few more trees and then popped them up on dimensionals, stamped Santa and his reindeer from the Holiday Wonder stamp set and then added some snow with some liquid pearls. The sentiment is stamped and then punched out with a circle punch and added it under the image panel.

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Taylored Expressions: Snow White Cardstock and Snow Day Project Pantry
Ink: Memento: Summer Sky, Tuxedo Black and Rose Bud
Accessories: dimensionals, liquid pearls, copics, sponge dauber, glitter, stickles, circle punch and brads from stash

I had so much fun creating this card and I can't wait to see what everyone has created for today's hop!!! Taylor is also giving away a PRIZE, where one random hopper will receive a FREE Taylored Expressions stamp set of choice and she will also be choosing another creation to be featured in the upcoming TE newsletter!!!! Stay tuned to Taylor's blog for more details of the next hop, but in the meantime, come on and hop with me!


Big hugs,
Sankari :)
