CardMaker-Taylored Expressions Blog Hop!!


Hello friends!!  Today is a very exciting day because the CardMaker blog team designers have joined up with designers from the Taylored Expressions design team to showcase the Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month club.  Just hop along to each blog on the list (the complete list can be found at the CardMaker blog, as well as the Taylored Exprssions blog)  and leave a little love for a chance to win a Stamp of the Month set (and coordinating dies!!) from the TE Stamp of the Month archives!!  How cool is that??  Pretty darn cool in my book!   You have until November 22nd at midnight PST to comment for a chance to win.  If you got here from TE designer Cassie Trask's blog, then you are on the right track.   The SOTM set I using today is the August SOTM set S'more Fun (and matching dies) and is just so cute that I had to make two cards.  First up is one using the little camper image.  I used the new sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch for the layout.


The camper die cut using the matching die, stamped and colored with Copic markers.  I die cut some My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste patterned paper with a Spellbinders rectangle die, added some white cardstock at the bottom and matted it with a larger Spellbinders rectangle die.   The camper was adhered using foam dimensionals.  The sentiment was stamped, cut into a fishtail banner and adhered.

Inside of card
For my second card I useed the two tree images, as well as the little tent image.  Just like the first card this one is really simple, too.  I cut a piece of woodgrain patterned paper from the Webster's Pages Family Traditions line to fit my card front, distressed the edges a bit and stamped it with the little map image.   The trees were die cut and stamped and the tent stamped and trimmed out.  All the image were added to the map using foam dimensionals.  A strip of the same patterned paper was cut and adhered to the inside of the card, stamped with the sentiment "miss you" and then two more die cut trees added.

Please check out the Taylored Expressions website to find out all the details of this fun club, as well as the Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Club. 

Your next stop on the hop is TE designer Amy Crockett's blog.  Thanks for stopping by...
