Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past Blog Hop


It's time once again for a fun Blast From the Past Blog Hop with Taylored Expressions! I *almost* forgot to sign up this month, things have been so hectic around here! But here I am!

The theme for February is "Going Green", and we were given pretty free reign to go where we wanted with that. I decided to literally "Go Green" and create a green-ish (as in the color) card using the February Key Ingredients kit:


I kept the layout super simple, using one of the green patterned papers from the Lush collection included in the February KI kit as well as the matching cardstock (and doesn't it match just PERFECTLY!?). For the stamp set, I pulled out my In the Park set and decided to use the bicycle image, coloring with Copics. I matted the image with my Lacey Circle Nestabilities. I tied on some cream satin ribbon (included in the KI kit) and rounded the bottom corners of the card with my Corner Chomper and finally added my sentiment and was done! SUPER quick and easy!

Be sure to check out the Key Ingredients Gallery for more inspiration from the KI Design Team using the February Kit! All the details about the Key Ingredients kit contents and how to subscribe can be found HERE.
