Taylored Expressions Blast From The Past Blog Hop!

**Today is a SUPER busy day on my blogaroo!  Please scroll down for my Happy Birthday Lori card as well as my MFTWSC20 card!  Thanks!**

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

Welcome to the May Taylored Expressions Blast From The Past Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is masculine and I had SO much fun with the sketch that Sankari designed!

For my card this month, I used the AWESOME Boys Will Be Boys set from Taylored Expressions.  I just love this tie stamp and wanted to use it paired with the delish Lime Twist Out Of The Blue from My Minds Eye.  I LOVE these papers for masculine cards.

I stamped the ties in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers.  I stamped the sentiment, "There's no tie when it comes to you", also in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock, and cut it out with the Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio 3.  LOVE these dies.

I threaded a ribbon through the die and added a bow of Baker's Twine along with a button for a fun accent.  All of the panels were sewn on my sewing machine and the border was created with the Small Scallop Border Die.  I also popped up the layers with Foam Tape.


Here is the Taylored Die I've used today:
