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.
