Blast from the Past: Clean and Simple

Hi everybody! Welcome to the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop! I hope you started at Taylor's blog, and came here by way of Kelli's. The theme for this month's hop is clean and simple. I started with Sankari's fun sketch and the Tag...You're It stamps. I thought it would be fun to use these tag stamps as a focal point of a card. I paired the label image and sentiment with some fun papers from the Echo Park Wintertime collection. The papers and ribbon were part of a past TE Key Ingredients Kit. The rest of the card was kept simple, with just a touch of embossing, in keeping with this month's theme! Thanks for stopping by! Your next stop is Erin's blog; you can see the full list of all the hop participants below.





Supplies:
Stamps: Tag...You're It -Taylored Expressions
Ink: blue bayou, ruby red (SU)
Paper: choice snow white, chocolate chip, soft sky, Echo Park Wintertime
Accessories: TE Label die,ribbon, Sizzix embossing folder, pearls

This is really darling! What a great thing to get started on the holidays early :-) I think even if I started now, I wouldn't get everything done.
