Blast From The Past Day!

It's time for another Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop!  I can't believe that there have already been 10 of these awesome hops!  This month Taylor has challenged us to keep our cards Clean & Simple.  And, of course, Sankari has also given us an awesome sketch to work with.

If you have just happened upon my blog, and would like to start at the beginning, head over to the Taylored Expressions blog to get started.  There is also a list of hoppers at the bottom of this post!

I actually made 2 cards for the hop today, so sit back and enjoy!

I absolutely LOVE the Make a Wish set!  It is definitely on my list of faves from Taylored Expressions.  I used this set for both of my cards today.

I began by stamping the cake, complete with a few candles in Memento Tuxedo Black, onto Choice Snow White CS, then colouring it in with my copics.  To give the candles a little sparkle, I added some Smooch Illuminate.

The sketch is Sankari's BFTP Sketch, and the papers are from my Winnie's Wall Project Pantry that has been sitting unused, just waiting!

For the inside of the card, I used more of the Winnie's Wall DP, and stamped a sentiment from the set.

Onto my second card....

For this card, I used the TESC #136 for my layout, but flipped it.  The stars are from the You're My Hero set, another favourite of mine!

I stamped the star in Riding Hood Red, Wild Wasabi, Ballet Blue and More Mustard ink.  The cake was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, and coloured with my copics.

The card was finished off with some machine stitching!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Don't forget to hop on over to all the TE BFTP participants.....there could be some goodies!

These are both amazing cards! I especially like how, in the first card, you carried your patterned paper to the inside--looks great!
