Taylored Expressions September Blast From The Past Blog Hop!


Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!!  Welcome to the September Taylored Expressions Blast From The Past Blog Hop!  This month, our theme is Birthday/Birth Day, and I've used the following sketch designed by our very own Sankari!


I decided to go a bit more elegant with my card this month...I usually go with a more cutesy vibe.  I started with the gorgeous Discover Your Wings set from Taylored Expressions, and stamped the flowers in Versamark and embossed them with Black Embossing Powder onto a piece of patterned paper.  All of the patterned paper on my card is the gorgeous Blush from My Minds Eye Lost and Found 2.  Love.

For the circle element, I cut a circle of a different Blush pattern with Circle Nestabilities and layered it with black cardstock cut with Scallop Circle Nestabilities.  I die cut a butterfly with the Butterflies Dies and added Latte Pearls in the center.

For the sentiment, I stamped the frame and "birthday Wishes", both from It's A Banner Day 1 onto more patterned paper and then cut it out with the Banner Day 1 Die.  To create the layer, I placed the die unto a piece of Black Cardstock, traced around it with a pencil and then cut it out.  I LOVE the layered look.

For the two corner panels, I used the From The Heart Frame Die and cut the patterned paper.  I added the layer of black the same way I mentioned above, and then added them to the corners.  Three more larger Latte Pearls finish this one off, and I popped up all the elements with Foam Tape.


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