Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop


Hello everyone and welcome to the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Customer Blog Hop!!!! You are going to find sooo much inspiration along the hop...each project will feature Taylored Expressions stamps and products.

My card features the sketch designed by Sankari Wegman and A Year of Sweets 3 set. The adorable back to school cuppie image was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with copics. A gel pen was used to add highlights to the cuppie's cheeks, apple, and the cherry on top.
A circle punch was used to punch the circles from October Afternoon's Report Card paper and the pencil was cut out of the same paper. A Stampin Up! spiral border punch was used on the background Cosmo Cricket Joy Ride dp and the ribbon was attached with a staple.
Recipe:
Stamps: A Year of Sweets 3
Paper: Baja Breeze, Vanilla, Cosmo Cricket Joy Ride dp, Journal Cards from October afternoon's Report Card dp
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Nestabilities, Ribbon, stapler, Spiral Border Punch, Dimensionals




Thanks for joining the hop today....hope you have fun and find lots of inspiration!!!
