Taylored Expressions' April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

Good morning Taylored Expressions Fans,

Welcome to another fabulous Taylored Expressions' Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. If you have hopped over from Joan Ervin's blog, then you are in the right place. The April Stamp of the Month, Made with Love, is so much fun to work with. I fell in love with the cute buttons and spool of thread. For a little added interest, I used Taylored Expressions' Scribbles cutting plate to create a stencil, which I then applied Faber-Castell's whipped spackle to create a textured background. The cutting plate reminded me of loose thread. Just perfect for this card's theme. I finished off the card with a sentiment from the Made with Love stamp set and twine.

April's Stamp of the Month, Made with Love, and the Key Ingredients kit are "sew" much fun to play with, so don't forget to stop by the Taylored Expressions store to check out this kit and all the other great crafting goodies. However, the fun is not over yet, hop on over to Kendra Wietstock's blog for more inspiration using the Made with Love stamp set.
