Taylored Expressions April Blast From The Past Blog Hop!

Hi everyone!!  Happy Wednesday!!

Today is the day for the Taylored Expressions April Blast From The Past Blog Hop (lol...that is quite a mouthful isn't it!).  This month's theme is Clean & Simple!

Now, Clean & Simple isn't a style that I profess to love, but the more I make them, the more I love the look of them!  This card was in my head for awhile, so when this month's theme was announced, I headed down to my stamp room and cranked it out!


This is a one layer card.  Yep...one layer!  Well, unless the hills count :)  I created them by stamping the fabulous Stitched Plaid Background onto green cardstock and I then free hand cut the shape of the hills.  Before adhering them to the Choice Snow White card base, I stitched them on my sewing machine.

I stamped the scooter from Feelin' Groovy in Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored it with Copic Markers.  I added one of Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to the center of the flower on the scooter for a bit of shine.

The clouds were cut from white felt using the Cloud Duo Die and attached them with Sticky Tape. I stamped the sentiment, "Scootin by to say hi!", also from Feelin' Groovy, in Memento Tuxedo Black on the top of the card and added different colored Twinkles on either side.  As always, when working with Taylor's Tiny Twinkles, I count on Embellie Gellie for perfect placement every time!

Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on my card today:

  1. Oh my goodness, this is SO cute! I don't think the hills count as a layer - they're not popped up with dimensional tape, right?!? LOVE the fluffly clouds against the white background!
