Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop
I'm so excited to be playing along in the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop with an AMAZING group of talented papercrafters!! You can find the list of participants at the end of this post - be sure to visit them all, you definitely won't be disappointed!!
For my Blast from the Past project, I actually decided to purchase one of my favorite TE sets that has been on my Wish List for quite awhile but that I just never got around to adding to my cart. Well, it's that time of year and this Blog Hop seemed like a good excuse, so I am FINALLY the proud owner of Boys Will Be Boys! YAY! I used the trio of ties image and the #1 Dad sentiment to create this fun card for my Father-in-Law for Father's Day:
Are you tired of that sketch yet? It's one of Jen del Muro's Sketch For You to Try sketches from last month and I'm telling you, it just may be the most perfect sketch ever created! I can't stop using it!! I stamped the tie image once on cream cardstock, then masked off one of the ties and stamped it again so I'd have a nice odd number of ties in a row (I wanted an oblong panel of ties and I have this weird aversion to even numbers). I then stamped the ties on various colors of cardstock to match the Thrift Shop DP (October Afternoon) I used on the rest of the card, cut them out with a hobby blade and popped them up on dimensionals on the original cream panel. I added a scalloped border and some pleated chocolate grosgrain to finish it up.
