Taylored Expressions April Blast from the Past Blog Hop!!


Hello! I'm excited to be participating in the April Taylored Expressions 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 hop is CLEAN & SIMPLE. I have to confess, though, that I completely forgot that this was the theme until after I made my card, photographed it and started writing this post.. a BIG oops on my part..

If you happened here by chance, please check the full list of participants at the bottom of this post!


Aside from the fact that have added a few layers, I did at least manage to leave some white space.. :) I stamped the leaf from Friendship Blooms and used the Leafy Branch Die to cut out the leaf. I popped this on my white label. For my flowers, I made a few flowers using the Friendship Blooms Dies (the 1.3" flower with 8 points). I left the bottom layer as is, curling the petals back with a tweezer. For the top flower, I snipped a couple of petals and glued them on top of the one next to it to create a raised effect, curled the petals, then attached the to the bottom flower with a pearl brad. My sentiment is also from Friendship Blooms.

I used Sankari's fun sketch for my layout:


Thanks so much for hopping by! I can't wait to hop around myself to see everyone's creations!
