Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today’s hop, I made a card with the elegant Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches bundle and the Gilded Autumn specialty designer series paper to share. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock.
We have a sketch challenge this week, and here is the card sketch we are using:
I embossed a Cajun Craze panel with the Bricks & Mortar 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Cajun Craze card base. I cut a panel of the Mint Macaroon paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ designer series paper pack with a die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhered it to an Early Espresso mat. I used the same die to cut a panel of Gilded Autumn specialty designer series paper and adhered it on top.
I cut a panel of the striped Gilded Autumn specialty designer series paper with the long curvy label die from the Tasteful Labels Dies in the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches bundle and adhered two leaf sprigs from the Forever Gold laser cut specialty paper with dots of liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches cling stamp set in versamark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I adhered the embossed label to the striped label and accented it with a Gilded gem and gold trim bow.
I applied Stampin’ Seal to the layered die cut DSP panel and wound a length of Mint Macaron Basketweave ribbon, making a Z and trimming the ends. I adhered the label over the ribbon with dimensionals and popped the layered panel to the embossed card front with dimensionals.
I stamped the leaf and grill images from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches stamp set in Cajun Craze and Mint Macaron inks on a Very Vanilla panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The rich colors of the Gilded Autumn specialty designer series paper make any fall card special. When paired with the beautiful images in the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches stamp set and touches of gold, your card becomes extra special!

This DSP has not been my favorite, no particular reason. But your color combination, using the Cajun Craze got my attention and you’ve done a great job of making a true fall card. I love following your creations!
Thank you so much!😊
