Taylored Expressions - Blast from the Past Blog Hop (October 19)


Welcome to the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop!  Today's theme is Trick or Sweet... hmm... that's a hard one to choose.  Anyway, I had a little burst of inspiration and decided to go with both themes.

Here's Trick:
We don't really celebrate Halloween in Malaysia, but since I had some Halloween themed papers, I thought it would be fun to make a card.


The My Mind's Eye paper (Mischievious 6x6 pad) is so cute, and so all I had to do was adhere the Pennants (cut with the matching Pennants Border die set) and a sentiment (pennant & sentiment are from the set Pennant Parade), and... the card is ready!

Here's my second card:
For this card, I cut out the front of the cardbase with a scalloped oval die.  I embossed a piece of white cardstock with the Clouds Impression Plate and inked some Distress Ink Tumbled Glass over it.  Then I cut a piece of patterned paper for the bottom of the embossed cardstock, and adhered to the card as shown.  The cupcake base was from the little platform on Life is a Circus set, stamped on a piece of white glittered felt, and the cupcake was cut using the Keeping Tabs die and folded.  For some interest and texture, I spritzed the Shimmer Goosebumps over the cupcake.  The balloons were coloured with Copic Markers and adhered just above the cupcake.  The tiny cupcake and the sentiment are from the Stamp set Pennant Parade (a special free set from Taylored Expressions).


Here's a closer look:
