Blast From the Past Blog Hop #4 from Taylored Expressions

Good Morning Everyone!

Welcome to the 4th Blast from the Past Blog Hop from Taylored Expressions, where every month Taylor has a blog hop with all TE fans to create something with their favorite TE stamp sets that was released at least three months ago. The hardest thing about doing these blog hops is trying to pick one stamp set because they are all so cute and sweet! Speaking of sweet, I decided to ink up the super sweet stamp set: Sprinkled with Love which is filled to the brim with sweetness :) I had fun inking up the sweet little cupcake and using some of the fabulous DP from Cosmo Cricket.

I created this little card/envelope set thanks to my girl Lori and her Cricut (love the little doily cut) At first the card could fit into the envelope, but after adding a few embellishments to the card, I realized that its going to be a right squeeze to get it in there :) So maybe I could insert a CD instead into the envie with the card :) I tied some twine around the buttons so that it could open/close easily. One tip - is to use the Best Glue Ever, when gluing down the buttons - wow! that glue is amazing - it about glues the whole house together! It really makes embellies stay put!
Here is picture of the card: I used the sketch for this card and had fun picking the colors from the DP onto card. The bottom of the cupcake is paper pieced (stamped in white) and then glazed it and added some red stickles onto the cherry:

Here is a close up of the card , and yes as you can see, I am addicted to dots:), the swiss dots embossed folder, the line of red bling on the ribbon and the liquid pearls from Adirondacks all around :)

Card Ingredients:
Paper: CosmoCricket
Ink: White Stazon for the cupcake liner, Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black and Ladybug Red.
Accessories: copper eyelet, red stcikles, spellbinders nesites (circles and scallops), glue dots, Best Glue Ever, red bling, glaze, Cuttlebug swiss embossing folder, Cricut, circle punch and Adirondack Dimensional Pearls (Terra Cotta).

I had such an fun time creating this card and envie - I love it when I lose track of time and just enjoy sitting and crafting and watching a Johnny Depp movie - sigh! the little joys in life are wonderful!!!
