{crafty} Blast From the Past Blog Hop

Welcome to Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop! The theme this month is CLEAN & SIMPLE. How is it that simple can be so difficult? This card came together quickly but I can't help but look at it and want to add more.


I used kraft cardstock for the base, all other papers are from TE's November '10 monthly kit.

I used the TE Scallops & Circles impression plate on the blue cardstock and inked the edges. 
I stamped the coffee cup, from the Sprinkled with Love stamp set, onto the polka dot paper twice and used pop dots to create some depth. I stamped it once more on cream cardstock and cut out just the cream and again popped it up. 

A chipboard label covered with cream paper is home to my sentiment from the From the Heart Funnies set. And finished off with a sheer blue ribbon.


This is a truly simple card for me, but I think the color combo gives it a nice little pop and this cute little coffee cup has me craving a cup now!
