March Blast from the Past Blog Hop from Taylored Expressions

HI Everyone,

Every month, Taylor hosts a Blast from the Past Challenge customer blog hop, where we all get to play with previously released stamp sets from Taylored Expressions. This month's blog hop's theme is SPRING! And I am so excited that it really is starting to look like... spring! (gasp!!) I couldn't wait to play with the In the Park stamp set which has such wonderful sentiments and images. I used the sentiment "wishing you a" and mixed it with the sentiment "Happy Birthday" to create a birthday card for a very dear friend of mine. Being with her is always like being around sunshine :) I stamped the tree twice and cut out the trunk from one of the tree images and glued it ontop of the first one and pulled out the branches a little to make it look a little 3-D. I colored in the leaves and then popped out a couple leaves as well as popping out the kites which were attached with baker's twine into a knot. 


I loved the clouds duo and picket fence die from the Taylored Dies series and used them to create a little border edging with the fence and some felt clouds.


Card Ingredients:
Paper: Taylored Expressions Choice Buttercream cardstock
Inks: Rosebud, Cantaloupe and Tuxedo black ink from Memento Inks
Stamps: In the Park  stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Accessories: Baker's Twine, felt,  clouds duo & picket fence die from Taylored Dies , liquid pearls and dimensionals

 I loved creating this card and can't wait to give it to my friend :) and I can't wait to see which stamp sets everyone has used for this month's theme and which stamp sets that they decided to use!

AND A PRIZE! We will be drawing one random hopper to receive a FREE Taylored Expressions stamp set of your choice and we'll also be choosing another creation to be featured in an upcoming TE newsletter. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
