June Key Ingredients Blog Hop with Taylored Expressions

Hello and welcome back for another fun blog hop as we showcase the wonderful Key Ingredients and the Stamp of the Month kits for June at Taylored Expressions.  This month, the Key Ingredients Kit includes a 6x6 paper pad from Simple Stories called Vintage Bliss......I love the colors in this line as well as the wonderful coordination papers and ribbon that comes in this kit.  Check out the card I created with it.......

I used the You Make Me Happy set which is this months Stamp of the Month.  I love these wonderful images.  Here is a closer look......

I curved the sentiment stamp on the block so that it was in the same curve as the circle.  I added a few buttons with the natural bakers twine from The Twinery on the buttons. and also added some stitching with my sewing machine. You can get a monthly subscription to the Key Ingredients or the Stamp of the Month and you can even get a combined subscription in the Deluxe Subscription.....you get the best of both and then some!!
