Today over at Taylored Expressions, is the totally fun monthly June Blast from the Past Blog Hop which is open to all customers and fans of TE to join in by creating a card using a previously released TE stamp set. This month's theme is "Old Glory" and to use the colors red, white and blue in your creation (it doesn't have to be patriotic images) and you can create with the optional sketch provided. I kinda went with a more turquoise version of the blue and created a card for a very dear friend of mine who is starting a new chapter in her life. She has gone through so much this last year and even more these past few months - and as she ends one chapter in her life and starts a new life (something that is both scary and exciting) I wanted to make her a special card to honor her courage and to let her know that she is not alone.
I used one of my favorite stamp sets: New Beginnings - which has such lovely sentiments of encouragement! The middle portion of the large frame was filled in by stamping
Paper: BG, Choice Buttercream cardstock
Stamps: New Beginnings by Taylored Expressions
Inks: Bahama Blue and Ladybug Red
Accessories: copics, circle and scallop punch, EK success scallop border, liquid pearls, prima flower, corner chomper, button from BG,
The best part about making this is being able to give it to her in person - I am so excited to be able to hang out with her next week and spend some R&R time together :) I had fun making this card - and I hope you have fun hopping along today and checking out all the Blast from the Past creations from everyone! I can't wait to hop over and check out all the creations that everyone has created with these colors!
Thanks so much for hopping by here today
Have a wonderful Thursday!
