Today I’m participating in Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past blog hop. It is a monthly hop for customers of TE… and it is the perfect opportunity to dust off your older TE stamps and show ‘em some lovin’. ;)
So the theme for this month is to “Make it Masculine.” Now that is a sight you don’t see very often on my blog. After all, I do love my glitter and pretty ribbon. However I managed to restrain myself (some twine did slip in) and made this card using the Belated Birthday – Oh Nuts A la Carte.
I stamped the squirrel twice and colored both images. I trimmed both images (leaving off the tail on the second) and then layered them together using dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment on light yellow cardstock and used some masculine colored designer paper from the Stella Rose Hattie line by My Mind’s Eye.
So I think I achieved a masculine look. Let me know what you think!
