TE Blast From The Past Blog Hop!

Hi there!  Welcome to the first ever Taylored Expressions Customer Blast From the Past Blog Hop where we are featuring any Taylored Expressions stamps that were released in 2008 and 2009!  You will see cards from the Baker's Dozen and many of Taylor's customers!  You will find a link list at the bottom of this post!

I used my MUCH LOVED Beary Special set!  This was one of my earliest purchases from Taylored Expressions before I became a member of the Baker's Dozen and I just love it!  The teddy bear was stamped in Memento Black ink on Choice Buttercream and colored with Copic Markers. I paper pieced the bear's patch, feet and ears.  He was cut out and popped up on foam tape.  The DP is a mix of October Afternoon Fly a Kite and Thrift Shop.  I rounded all of the corners with the Corner Chomper

Don't forget to check out all of the amazing creations from all of the particpants!  I can't wait to hop around!
