June TE Blast From The Past Blog Hop!

Hi everyone!  Happy Thursday!  I am excited to have a card today for the Taylored ExpressionsJune Blast From The Past Blog Hop!  This month, our theme is Old Glory!

For my card, I used the FABULOUS sketch designed by our very own Sankari.  She always provides us with wonderful sketches!


For my card, I was excited to use some of the delish new Liberty papers from Bo Bunny!  They were just the ticket for this month's challenge!   I started by stamping this SUPER sweet firework lovin' Cuppie from A Year of Sweets 2 in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers.  I cut out and embossed the panel with Rectangle Nestabilities and then, using a Copic Multliner, created the frame around Cuppie, leaving a space.

In the little space, and on the "ends" of all the fireworks, I added Taylor's Tiny Twinkles, and used a mixture of both Crystal Twinkles and Multicolor Twinkles.  There are lots on my card...but Embellie Gellie made placing them SO easy! 

Between my two panels of patterned paper, I added a border with the Scalloped Eyelet Border Die, and the sentiment, "Happy 4th of July", from A Year of Sweet Sentiments, was cut out and embossed with Petite Oval Nestabilities and I added a frame and Twinkles to that panel as well.   All of the panels are popped up on Foam Tape and a simple bow created with The Bow Easy, and tons of machine stitching, finish this one off!


Here is the Taylored Die I've used on this card:
