June Blast from the Past Hop

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 “Old Glory.”   Break out the red, white and blue and create!  I did add green… but that was only because I thought a blue apple tree would look a little odd. ;) For my card I used Branching Out and the apple from Branching Out Coordinates.

I stamped the tree in Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with green Copic markers before cutting out.  I then stamped a bunch of little apples, colored and cut them out.  After attaching to the main tree I added Glossy Accents and glitter and a bit more Glossy Accents to the leaves.
