Taylored Expressions Blast From The Past Blog Hop!

Hi everyone!! Happy Thursday!!

It's that time of the month again! The Taylored Expressions Blast From The Past Blog Hop! I LOVE these hops...I have SO many TE stamps that are aching for a good inking!!

This month's theme is Going Green! I went quite literal with my card and used alot of, well, green!!


I LOVE LOVE LOVE this St. Paddy's Day Cuppie from A Year of Sweets 1, and I LOVE to pull him out and color him up for St. Patrick's Day! I thought he was perfect for this month's theme!!

I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers. I cut out and embossed the panel with Circle Nestabilities.

I gave the shamrocks, and of course, the gold in the pot o' gold, some shimmer with Starfire Glitter that I adhered with a Quickie Glue Pen.

I created a patchwork background from some green paper that I embossed with the Seeing Spots Embossing Folder. I then stitched each block on my sewing machine.

The sentiment, "Magically Delicious" is from the FABULOUS A Year of Sweet Sentiments set, and I stamped it directly onto the focal panel. I added a bow that I created with The Bow Easy and popped up the focal panel with Foam Tape.

I can't wait to check out what the rest of the participants have created this month!!





Thanks SO much for stopping by! I can't wait to see what theme we will be working with for March!
