Blast From the Past Blog Hop #8 from Taylored Expressions




 HI Everyone,

Every month, Taylored Expressions hosts a customer and fan blog hop where we feature all of the wonderful previously released stamp sets from Taylored Expressions. This month the theme was to GO GREEN! Well, I love green - it is one of my most favorite colors and I was all set to make a Lucky CHarms card, but then I saw one of my favorite sets lying out: Hangin' Out  - and so I switched gears and couldn't wait to play with this set! I used the sketch that is optional for this blog hop and got my "green" on!

Cloud Duo DieWhat was funny - is that I started to make my card, forgot about the sketch and then remembered at the last moment before putting it together - phew! :) I love this dress stamp that is in this stamp set and paper pieced this dress with one of the DP's from the Feb. Key Ingredients kit. I also used one of the new dies: Clouds Duo from Taylored Expressions to create the clouds and finished them off with some liquid pearls and finished the whole thing off with a little white gel pen.

I added some rolling hills and then added a little glaze and finished them off with some dotted liquid pearls. The top right corner was corner chomped (1/2") and I added the sweet sentiment: "Let's Hang Out" at the bottom. I love this stamp set and loved playing with the greens and black combo:



Card Ingredients:
Paper: Prism cardstock, Buttercream Choice cardstock and DP from Feb Key Ingredients kit
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Accessories: white gel pen, liquid pearls, white glaze, twine, Cloud Duo die from Taylored Expressions, Spellbinder's circles, star punch from MS, bling from Bo Bunny bling
