Tasteful Touches

Today I’m featuring a card made with products from the In Good Taste Suite in the new annual catalog. The stamp set, Tasteful Touches has beautiful images that can be used in so many different ways, and the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper is amazing!

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Rococo Rose cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 11″, score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half.
  • Cut a piece of Petal Pink cardstock at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and adhere to card base.
  • Cut piece of Designer Series Paper at 4″ x 5 1/4″.
  • Stamp floral image with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock. Color with Rococo Rose, Flirty Flamingo, Petal Pink and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends. Fussy cut image.
  • Stamp greeting with Early Espresso ink on scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock. Cut out with largest die in the Tasteful Labels Dies set. Stamp feather image onto label with Rococo Rose ink.
  • Cut piece of two-toned gold and Rococo Rose gathered ribbon at 5 3/4″, wrap each end to back of DSP and adhere. Adhere this piece on top of the Petal Pink cardstock layer.
  • Place label in the middle of the card front, but don’t adhere it yet. Select several leaves from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper and arrange them underneath the label. Once you like how it looks, adhere them onto the DSP and then adhere the label. Adhere flower to upper part of label.
  • Adhere a few Champagne Rhinestones for some extra bling.
  • Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp feather with Rococo Rose ink along left side. Adhere to inside of card.

Posted for You

Today’s card features the Posted for You bundle. When I first saw it in the new catalog I thought that both the stamp set and punch would be versatile. The stamp set has sweet images that can be colored with Stampin’ Write Markers or Stampin’ Blends, watercolored, stamped outlines with different ink colors and no coloring, or heat embossed for a variety of different looks. I also like the greetings and type font.

There are a number of layouts in the catalog that I thought would work well with this set so I cased the layout on page 70. I haven’t done much watercoloring lately so I decided try out the Fluid 100 watercolor paper introduced by Stampin’ Up! last year. This paper is smoother and is also a brighter white than our previous watercolor paper and it worked beautifully!

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score and fold in half.
  • Cut another piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock at 3″ x 4 1/4″and run through an embossing machine with the Pinewood Planks 3D embossing folder. Adhere to center of card base.
  • Cut piece of Seaside Spray cardstock at 2 1/2″ x 4″ and adhere to card.
  • Stamp floral image twice on piece of Fluid 100 watercolor paper with black Stazon ink. Use Seaside Spray, Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede inks and color in the images with a Water Painter. Note that Stampin’ Up! retired the Aqua Painters and replaced them with these new Water Painters, which come in a package with three different brush in sizes.
  • Stamp bird image once and color with So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz ink.
  • Punch out all three images with the Rectangular Postage Stamp. Adhere to Seaside Spray piece.
  • Stamp birthday greeting with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on 1/2″ x 4″ strip of So Saffron cardstock. Using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, center the strip in the 1/2″ track with the rounded top design and punch both ends. Adhere over stamped images with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to inside of card.
