Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop


Hey, everyone! Here I am hopping along with a bunch of other amazing stampers for the Taylored Expressions "Blast from the Past" Blog Hop today! This is just a fun blog hop to go back and give some love to those stamp sets that are sometimes buried and forgotten in our stampin' rooms! All the designers you see on the hop today are using stamps from Taylored Expressions that were released prior to March 2010. We had the option today of using this inspiration piece below for the colors on our creations, and since I really liked this color combo I decided to use it on my card.
I chose to use my Branching Out stamp set for my card today, and paired it with this paper from My Mind's Eye that I thought was a good option with this color combo. I did some straight stitching on the machine around the square panel, and zig-zagged down the red floral strip, too.








Thanks for stopping by!
