May Blast from the Past Hop!

Hello everyone!

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!

Stamps: Belated Birthday – Oh Nuts A La Carte (Taylored Expressions).
Paper: Barely Banana, Naturals Ivory, Basic Black (SU!), Choice Snow White (Taylored Expressions), Stella Rose - Hattie designer (My Mind’s Eye).
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers.
Accessories: Labels Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Gray Divine Twine, twill tape, foam dimensionals, heavy duty white thread and sewing machine, black brads, Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers).
