Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past Blog Hop!

Yay! It's time for another Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past Blog Hop, where we showcase stamp sets released last year.

Since it's summertime, I reached for Beach Bum! Cuppie is kicking back, soaking up some rays... life IS good!! Makes me want to go do the same!

I guess you could say I embraced the white space in this card. (*grin*) I put sunglasses on the Cuppie using my Stampa-ma-jig, but first wiped the ink off of the... what do you call those parts that go from the main part of the frames to hook over your ears? I've worn glasses forever and I just realized I either don't know or forgot what they're called! But I think you know what I mean :). The DP is Rusted Sun by Fancy Pants, and the die cut sticker sun is by We R Memory Keepers.

Edited to add: I completely forgot about the color inspiration! But it must have been seared into my subconscious because... voila...I sorta actually used most of these colors in my card. (*insert sheepish grin*)



I can't wait to do the HOP myself! Have a BLAST!
