Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! Welcome to this month's Taylored Expressions Blast From The Past Blog Hop!!
For my card today, I used the sketch that Sankari designed for this month's hop! SUCH a fun sketch and one I will be using over and over!
I pulled out my much loved Sprinkled With Love set from Taylored Expressions and knew that I wanted my card to showcase the donut!! At CHA in January, all of the TE girls (and everyone that passed by the TE booth) fell in LOVE with this GORGEOUS card by Karen! Dawn and I were going to swipe it and pretend it was ours so we could submit it for publication! LOL!!
As you can see, I was greatly inspired by the way Karen decorated her middle donut. I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream and colored it with Copic Markers. I then gave it a coat of Adirondeck Espresso Pearls and added some little beads to replicate sprinkles.
All the patterned paper is from Fly A Kite by October Afternoon, and I ran each panel through the Cuttlebug with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder and the sewed each panel on my sewing machine. I stamped "everything is so much better" onto my focal panel, and then "with sprinkles" on the largest of the Tags Trio by Spellbinders. Both of these sentiments are also from Sprinkled With Love.
I created a bow out of some yummy ribbon using my Bow Easy and finished it off with a Cream Vintage Jenni Bowlin Button (LOVE these) with a little linen bow as well! Two brads (which I colored with Copic Markers) finish this one off.
Check out what the rest of the blog hoppers did today right here:
