Taylored Expression November Blast from Past Hop!

Blast from the Past Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to the Taylored Expressions November Blast from the Past Blog Hop! Each month, Taylor invites her customers to participate in this fun hop and feature Taylored Expressions Stamps! The theme for our November hop is Autumn/Thankful. If you happened here by chance, please check the full list of participants at the bottom of this post!


Before I started, I selected this sweet image of Cuppie from A Year of Sweets 3. Next, I pulled out my October Key Ingredients since it has everything that I needed to create an autumn card. I colored Cuppie with Copic markers. I stamped an extra image, colored a couple of the pumpkins, cut them out and popped them up with foam tape. My sentiment is from Garden Party Critters. I stamped "Thinking of You", cut it out with Spellbinders Nested Pumpkins and sponged some Wild Honey Distress ink onto it while it was still in the die.


Here's a detail shot:


For my layout, I used the fabulous (yet optional) sketch by Sankari (below). I tried a few different patterned papers on my background, but I thought they looked too busy, so first I scored a few vertical lines, then as I was putting my card together, I decided to stitch over the score lines.


Thanks so much for hopping by!
