It’s time for the monthly Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past Blog Hop!  All TE customers are invited to join in as we play with some of our favorite (but not newest) sets.  The theme for this month is Going Green. I used the optional sketch (created by Sankari Wegman) and turned to my all time favorite TE set, Branching Out with a little help from Garden Party Blooms and the coordinating die (for the sunshine.)

Papers and ribbon are from a TE Key Ingredients kit from last year that featured October Afternoon Modern Homemaker.  All of the colors I used on the card were pulled from the striped piece of patterned paper.  I added some SU Daffodil Delight cardstock.  I inked up the sun image with Daffodil ink and then used the rock’n’roll technique to ink the edges with Peach Parfait before stamping onto Daffodil cardstock and die cutting with the Taylored Die.  The sun was overpowering the card by covering up a portion of the branch and leaves, so I used a craft knife to cut around a couple of the leaves and tuck the sun in behind them.  It’s hard to tell in the photo, but the little flowers are KaiserCraft pink rhinestone flowers – just the special little touch I needed!

There are a ton of people playing in the hop today and I can hardly wait to see what everyone created.  I always love to see which sets people chose to use for these hops. Be sure to stop by Taylor’s blog to see her sample and to get the info to sign up to play with us next month.
