Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past~KelliJo


It's TIME!!!!! Taylored Expressions is having their 2nd Blast from the Past Blog Hop and I am playing again but THIS TIME... ON TIME!!!! LOL AM...PM.... who'da thunk it was THAT big of a time difference??? **wink wink**
Anyway, on to my card: I used the OH SO Catch My Eye when it was new "Chill-Ax" set from Talyored Expressions. We were challenged for this hop based on a picture and since I'm a bit "challenged" in linking Just take my word for it, I DID IT!!!!! ;)
Red, Yellow, Blue and Green! YUP!!!!
SO I cut my card into a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 in base, cut strips of PI Poppy Red, Lemon Tart, MFT Snow Cone and Sour Green Apple CS and mounted them onto my PI White Card Base.
GASP! I used my previously hoarded TE Handmade buttons threaded some MFT Ribbon through them (easy peasy) ...
I stamped the drink stamp 3 times and colored then cut them out, I added Glassy Gel pen to give them some shimmer, some white gel pen for *pow*, some Glitter Pen for *ooo* LOL The drinks were popped up using Jody's Dimensionals onto a piece of PI White that I stamped some lemon and lime stamps in Memento Pear Tart and Dandelion. Traced the outlines with some more Glitter Pen. I stamped the inside with the same lemon and lime pieces but stamped them off first for a soft affect and stamped the phrase from the Chill-Ax set Chillax, Chickie to the inside down towards the bottom so that you have room to yakkity yak on the card! :)
Not head on to see some more GOODIES from the rest of the Blast Pack!!!! I'll help ya.... Follow this thread....
Have fun and I'll see ya there!!!!! ;)

Great card. I'm so missing this set. It was out of stock when I went to order it the first time, and even though I got Taylor's e-mail when it was back in stock, I haven't managed to make it one of my own yet. Maybe all this wonderful inspiration will do the trick.
