Taylored Expressions' April Blast From the Past Customer Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the Taylored Expressions' April 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. The theme this month is Clean and Simple designs (CAS)...I used the awesome inspiration sketch by Sankari Wegman and the adorable teacup, scalloped square, and sentiment stamps from Taylored Expressions CreativiTea set.


The images were all stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, cutout, and attached with foam dots. The teacup was colored with copics and a craft knife was used to create a slit along the flower on the scalloped square for the teacup. Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden dp was used for the background layer and the blue seam binding finishes it off.

Recipe: Stamps: Taylored Expressions CreativiTea, Paper: Prism Baby Blue Light, Vanilla, Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden dp, Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Accessories: Copics, EK Success Scallop Border Punch







Thanks for joining us....have fun on the hop and I hope you day is super special!!

Your soft colours are so pretty on this card, Joan, and your bow is as beautiful as always, I do love the way you tie yours, I've not yet been able to make a large bow look nice!
