TE June Blast from the Past Blog Hop!!


Hello friends! I'm excited to be playing along in the Taylored Expressions June Blast from the Past Customer Blog Hop! If you just stopped here by chance and would like to start from the beginning, hop on over to Taylor's blog for the official start of the hop. For a complete list of participants, please see the hop list at the end of my post. I elected to use the inspiration colors from this fun photo (below) that Taylor provided.


For our creations, we could use any Taylored Expressions set(s) released through March 2010. It was hard to narrow it down, but I ended up using one of the many fun images from Crafty Cuppie. The sentiment is from For the Love of Cupcakes. I made this birthday card for Mona, who is celebrating her birthday very soon! Happy, Happy Birthday, my sweet friend!!


I paired some patterned papers from Cosmo Cricket Early Bird together for my card layers. I colored the fun image of Cuppie and her stamping supplies with Copic markers and paper-pieced her apron. I also sponged the layers with Antique Linen distress ink. All layers are attached with foam tape for added dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Hopping!
