Blast From the Past Blog Hop #7 - Taylored Expressions

Hi everyone,


Every month Taylored Expressions hosts a Blast from the Past Blog Hop - where all TE fans can sign up for the blog hop and use their fave TE stamps from previous releases. This month, the theme was to create something with "Love is in the Air" and I knew that I wanted to use the cutest little elephants from the Stamps A La Carte Elephants in Love.  I love these cute elephants and love that they are showering everyone with hearts :)






I used the sketch from this month's Blast From The Past and used the new Be Mine DP from Echo Park - love the grays in this collection! I stamped the ellie heart image onto the Snow White Choice cardstock. I paper pieced some of the hearts and then colored the rest of the hearts and the cute ellies with copics. After finishing, I finished with my clear spica glitter and applied a few epoxy hearts to the stamped image.  I cut out the stamped image using the Taylored Dies: Take Note Die -3 and stamped the sentiment "showered with love" and made it a wavy flag. I had fun with the white opal liquid pearls and finished off the card with a trio of hearts on the bottom of the card:

Card Ingredients: 
Paper: Echo Park:  Be Mine DP and Snow White Choice cardstock
Stamps: Elephants in Love stamp from Taylored Expressions
Ink: Tuxedo Black ink
Accessories: heart epoxy stickers and ribbon from stash, Take Note Die -3,  dimensionals, EK success punch, white opal liquid pearls and clear spica glitter.
