Blast from the Past Blog Hop

Welcome to all you delightful blog hoppers!!
Today we are having some fun with the Taylored Expression stamps that were released prior to March 2011. This month the theme is geared toward the guys "Make it Manly." Father's Day is just around the corner so that was my inspiration! I've used the stamp set called In the Park. Love this set (what's not to love about it!!) it has so many fun possibilities to create! I've stamped the park bench onto a piece of Creative Imaginations paper that is licensed by John Deere (does that make it manly or what!) and it looks just like the side of the barn. Of course the picnic lunch basket and pup are sitting on it so it's difficult to see. The Gingham is a piece of designer paper from g.c.d Studios - The Great Outdoors Collection. Thanks to Sankari for supplying the fun sketch to inspire us!


Man's best friend (basket of food AND the dog!)



Other ingredients used: Card stock: Neenah (bright white); Bazzill (Pomegranate, Jacaranda); Ink: Memento, rich cocoa and Palette, black; Images were colored with Copics (sorry all put away so I'm not sure which ones I used); Glossy Accents by Ranger to "weather proof" the basket :-) American Crafts ribbon (and my stash - white ribbon); Spellbinders Nestabilities: Reverse Wonky Rectangles and Standard Circles large.
Here is a CAS card that I CASE'd from Regina Mangum, I've used the Kids At Heart set, I'm having so much fun with these stamps! I've used Bazzill card stock (base) and Neenah (bright white to stamp on. Archival Ink (Crimson), American Crafts ribbon and Spellbinders Nestabilities Reversed Wonky Rectangles are the rest of the ingredients. Clean and simple, fast and easy!!




Thanks for looking and leaving a delightful comment!! Enjoy the rest of the hop, you will find the rest of the participants at the end of the post - grab another cup of coffee and enjoy!

(Don't forget to join the Christian Paper Crafts blog hop featuring the guys on May 22!!)
