Happy Tuesday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend and boy do I have a lot to catch you up on. Today I can share one bit of news with you, but the rest will have to wait until tomorrow. Not that I mean to tease you, it's just that I'm waiting on the go ahead on one more item.
As some of you might have read on Taylor's blog yesterday, my official last day on her team was yesterday. I had a wonderful time designing with her line of stamps and her newly released dies; had the pleasure to work along side at CHA with some of the wonderful ladies that make up most of her design team; and even had the chance to meet some of you in person. I'd like to extend my most sincere gratitude to Taylor for the last six months and wish her all the best in her ever growing successful company.
I thought it was fitting to conclude my design team term with Taylored Expressions with a card featuring her stamps. I used this week's Color Combo Challenge (CC286) over SCS along with the Summer Afternoon and CreativiTEA set to come up with this.
I used a bit of October Afternoon's Fly a Kite patterned paper to cut out a circle using Spellbinders Lacey Circles die and the classic circle to cut the middle section. At the end of each loop I added a rhinestones from Taylor's Twinkles and set it aside.
I stamped the image from Summer Afternoonand cut it out with a Spellbinder's Classic Circles dies. I sponged around the image with some ColorBox Ice Blue Fluid Chalk ink. I adhered it to the lacey circle piece and place it on top of a piece of Polka Dot Mellon Mambo Grosgrain Ribbon.I stamped the sentiment on a piece of Melon Mambo card stock and punched it out with the modern label punch.
