Taylored Expressions Blast From The Past Blog Hop!

Yay! It's time for the monthly Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop, a time when we show our "older" TE stamps (those released through May 2010) some love!


Sankari Wegman once again designed a fun sketch for us to play with. Since my August Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients kit recently arrived, and some of the DP (and kit extras) feature butterflies, it was only natural to reach for Discover Your Wings, which is such a beautiful stamp set.

I stamped one of the main butterfly images on white cardstock and then cut and embossed the image with one of my circle Nesties. While the die was still on the paper, I sponged Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Ink all over the circle. I then paper-pieced the butterfly, added the greeting, and sparkled the edge of the wings with orange Stickles. The ribbon was also part of the KI kit. I'm tellin' ya, Taylor's kits and stamps make it SO easy to create beautiful cards in a snap!



Enjoy!

Note, this is my second post for today... please scroll down for my Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps challenge card. Thanks!
