Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

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!

Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Hello Card

Good Morning! Today I made a sweet Hello card with the new Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches bundle. This cling stamp set has an eclectic set of images that are great for creating both masculine and feminine cards. It has some great texture stamps and wonderful sentiments in an easy flowing font that really let you express your creativity. And every label die in the Tasteful Labels dies has a special stitched or embossed edge that makes it extra special and a definite must have. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by stamping the leaf branch from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a panel of In Good Taste designer series paper. I adhered the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and then popped it on the front of a Gray Granite Card Base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment in Misty Moonlight on a panel of Petal Pink card stock and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels dies. I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches in Misty Moonlight ink on Whisper White and fussy cut it out. I colored it with Petal Pink and Mango Melody Stampin Blends. I cut a fern branch from vellum using the Forever Flourishing dies.

I adhered the vellum fern and label to the card front with Stampin’ Seal. I applied more Stampin’ Seal and wound some Misty Moonlight and silver twine a couple of times on the left side of the label and popped the flower on top with dimensionals. I finished the front off with three champagne rhinestones.

I stamped the branches from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a Whisper White panel. I adhered a strip of the In Good Taste DSP to the bottom and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches bundle is part of the new In Good Taste suite along with the In Good Taste DSP. The products in this suite are full of neutral colors and natural textures and make very elegant cards!
