Blast From the Past Blog Hop #17: Thankful for You!

Hi Everyone,

Every month Taylor has a customer blog hop for all the fans of Taylored Expressions  where all TE fans can play along with previously released stamp sets. I used this month's sketch (optional) to create a card for one of my children's teachers - for whom I am so thankful for - she is seriously the best and he absolutely adores her and is excited to go to school everyday because of the fun and learning that she brings to the classroom. For my card today, I used the Celebrate Life stamp set from Taylored Expressions and used the Medium Scallop Border Die die and the Scalloped Eyelet Border Die and the newly released Mini Leaves Die

I loved making this card for someone as special as her and kept the accents to a minium - just a little outlining of liquid pearls around the edges and a sweet little bow. I die cut the circle out of white cardstock and also out of the DP and then cut the DP circle in about half and adhered it to the white cardstock. I then lined it with the Scalloped Eyelet border die so that the center circle would have a little bit more "Fun-ness" going on and then finished it off with one of the leaves that cut out of the DP:

Card ingredients:
Paper: Buttercream Choice  cardstock, Cosmo Cricket (Circa 1934)
StampsCelebrate Life stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Medium Scallop Border Die die, Scalloped Eyelet Border Die and the newly released Mini Leaves Die from Taylored Expressions, liquid pearls, dimensionals, Spellbinders, ribbon from May Arts

I can't wait to see what everyone has created using all of the awesome stamps that Taylor has released every month! It's always so much fun to stop by and check out everyone's wonderful creations! Please check them all out here and stop by Taylor's blog for more info on how you can join in on the fun next month!

Thanks for stopping by today!
