Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop

I'm so excited to be participating once again in the Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past Blog Hop!! I'm joined by some AMAZINGLY talented papercrafters from around the world, so be sure to stop by each blog to see what they've done!!


This time around I decided to get a headstart on my Holiday Cards! I pulled out my Wings of Joy stamp set and used the fun string of winter wear, coloring with Copics to match my printed digi paper from the Winter Wonderland kit by Zoe Pearn (Sweet Shoppe). I added a little stamped sentiment strip, also from Wings of Joy, to the bottom right of the card. I threw on a few matching buttons threaded with hemp twine and some zig-zag stitching, but my favorite part? I finally used some Liquid Applique for the first time ever - adding it to some of the mittens and stocking caps in the stamped image!


That's it! Don't forget to stop by the rest of the blogs listed below for some awesome inspiration! Trust me, it will be worth it!!
