Taylored Expressions' October Blast From The Past Blog Hop

So glad to be able to cr8 again for this month's BFTP Blog Hop. The theme for October's BFTP blog hop is Trick or Sweet.  I had great fun getting to use a new set, well... it's new to me:  Home Sweet Home.  It made it very easy to go overboard with the "sweetness" factor...  you'll see what I mean when you look at the card I cr8'd.


I had so much fun infusing lots of color & sugary-sweet dimension to this card!  I used Glamour Dust to cr8 the effect of mounds of snow, along with glitter-dusted (using a glitter marker) gum drops that line the path to the door.  Glossy accents was used on the candy canes & clear baubles adhered using glitter glue were placed to give dimension for the Skittles-like candies (as well as the door knob) on the gingerbread house.  The snowflakes were stamped using a powder blue chalk ink & accented with a clear Spica Glitter pen.  Finally the sentiment was stamped using Colorbox black pigment ink & heat embossed (by using a clear embossing powder).

Thanks for taking a look today at my sweet cr8'ion for this month's TE blog hop.  Enjoy the rest of the cards cr8'd by other crafty bloggers.  (You can follow along easily with the list below.)




Happy Cr8'ing!
