Taylored Expressions Blast From The Past Blog Hop!

** PLEASE SCROLL DOWN A SMIDGE FOR MY THERE SHE GOES POST...THANKS! **

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!! Welcome to the Taylored Expressions Blast From The Past Blog Hop!!! I LOVE this monthly hop as I get to use some of my beloved, previously released Taylored Expressions sets!!

If you have been around my blog at all, you know that I just LOVE Cuppie, so of course, I had to use a Cuppie stamp today!! I started with the AWESOME sketch provided by the uber talented (and super sweet) Sankari and got to work!!

For my card, I knew I wanted to use some of the new (and delish) Cosmo Cricket Matilda paper (and just so you know, ALL of the Cosmo Cricket Mini Decks are available in the Fresh Out Of The Oven Catagory at Taylored Expressions so stock up before they are gone!) so I decided to make a Halloween card! Halloween is my very favorite stampy holiday! I used the SUPER sweet Trick or Sweet set from Taylored Expressions and stamped the Cuppie Witch in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream and colored her with Copic Markers.

I cut out and embossed the focal panel with Circle Nestabilities that I layered over Scallop Circle Nestabilities. I added some purple Taylor's Tiny Twinkles for a bit of pop. I created scalloped borders from one of the Matilda patterns for the left side of my card, and added a sentiment panel to the right side, using the "Best Witches" sentiment from Trick or Sweet. I then sewed the layers on my sewing machine. I finished my card off with three buttons from my stash that I tied with vanilla thread.

You can check out all the fabulous stampers participating in today's hop right here:
