IN GOOD TASTE SUITE

Hi, I’m going to end this week with a look at the In Good Taste Suite.  When a new catalogue comes out, I frequently CASE(copy and share everything) a card and today’s shows off the In Good Taste Suite(154147).

I started off with a card base of Petal Pink and then cut a piece of the In Good Taste designer paper.  The image was stamped randomly in Versamark and then sprinkled with White Emboss Powder.  All that was need then was to heat set it and adhere it to the card base.

That great shape was cut with the matching Tasteful Labels dies stamped with a great sentiment.  To get the tiny circles I used a 1/8″ hand-held circle punch and adhered them with the Fine-Tip Glue pen.  You can find the cased card on page 122!

Here’s the list of products used.

MANY MATES IN GREEN

It’s the day to focus on green.  There are some beautiful new designer papers in Stampin’ Up!’s new Annual Catalogue so today’s card features the Forever Greenery designer paper(152492).

What do you think of the colour combination?  Just Jade and Purple Posy from each of the InColour collections.

All this card needed was a good greeting and Many Mates was the perfect choice.

I am playing along with The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week and choose purple, die cut and birthday. (I frequently use the “thinking of you” sentiment for birthdays).

Here’s the list of products used.  Please note that I am still using our SNAIL Adhesive but will be getting the new Stampin’ Seal very soon.

ONE HAPPY SUNFLOWER

It’s Tuesday already, the second day of June!  But I’m happy about that and so is this great big beautiful sunflower.

This bloom is just one of the great images and sentiments that are available in the new Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.  Don’t worry, it will be available to you tomorrow, June 3rd!

I used a variety of Stampin’ Blends to colour this beauty and backed the whole card up with the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder(151801).

The layout to showcase this beautiful sunflower comes from the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

Here’s the list of products that I used.

SHADES OF BROWN

It may seem strange to use browns in the springtime, but spring colours come in many shades and brown is just one of them!

I’m happy to say that the Forever Blossoms stamp set and matching dies are staying around for another year – BUT – purchase them now as a bundle and save 10%.  I pulled a piece of the retiring Magnolia Lane designer paper for the background and added that touch of Blushing Bride for a light pop of colour.

The branch of lovely blossoms was first stamped with Early Espresso and then over-stamped with Versamark, sprinkled with Clear Emboss powder and heat set!  I did the same with that beautiful greeting from the new Tasteful Textures stamp set.  I also used the Tasteful Textures embossing folder for the card base.

SUO Challenges latest challenge is a designer’s choice so I’m playing along with today’s card.  I am also playing along with Colour INKspiration for the colour challenge.

FOREVER GREENERY

Well, it’s Friday and the theme for today is green!  I absolutely love the many shades of green and designs in the new Forever Greenery designer paper package and this card highlights a few of them.

I started off with a card base using the new InColor Just Jade and  added the plaid ribbon from the new Flowers for Every Season ribbon combo.  The die cuts were a “lightbulb” moment and are from the Garden Gateway dies(151512).

The whole idea behind the layout of this card came from Freshly Made Sketches and WOW, it was a challenging one to use.

I played around with this for a long while, lol!  However, I do like the finished product and will be sending it off to a friend for their birthday.

Here’s the product list.

SAY HAPPY ANNIVERSARY WITH TO A WILD ROSE

Today’s card features the To A Wild Rose bundle(151073) with assistance from a new stamp set, Many Mates(available on June 3rd).  I love all of the different sentiments in this set!

The To A Wild Rose set is a 3-step stamping set so you can create these beautiful flowers with different shades of ink.  I used a combination of Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo for these brightly beautiful blooms.

The background is a piece of new designer paper called In Good Taste(also available on June 3rd).

The layout comes from this week’s sketch challenge from The Paper Players.

Here’s the list of some of the products used, I’m not listing the new products yet.

WHEN IN DOUBT CASE THE CATALOGUE

Whenever I am “stuck” as to how to use a new stamp set and dies, I CASE(Copy and Share Everything) the catalogue.  So today’s card is my interpretation of a card in the new 2020-2021 Catalogue(page 43).

This was created using the Many Mates Bundle and those dies are interesting and a little challenging to use.  But, following along with the picture, I was able to get it done!

After cutting out the medallion pattern, I brushed extra colour on by using the Smoky Slate ink pad and then glued it down using the Fine-Tip glue pen.  This card uses quite a few new items, Misty Moonlight 1/2″ twill ribbon, Flowers for every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and the In Good Taste Elements.

Here’s the list of products used.

I’ve been playing around with other new items and will be posting them as well.

In the meantime, have a great day and happy stamping to you!

A LITTLE LACE, A LITTLE GOLD

Welcome!  Today’s card features the A Little Lace stamp set paired up with a sweet tiny butterfly.

A Little Lace(149364) is a lovely stamp set and I decided to use our Gold Emboss powder to show off that beautiful image.  Of course it absolutely needed that tiny golden butterfly to finish it off.  I did not add a sentiment because this card can be used for just about any occasion – you pick!

I am following along with the CAS(E) this sketch challenge for this week too.  Check out this great sketch.

It could inspire one to use any stamp set, paper and accessories!

A BRIGHT BUNCH OF SUNFLOWERS

Welcome and happy Monday to you!  I was working with the new and coming soon Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle over the weekend and here they are!

I wanted to step up my colouring so used different shades of yellow and green Stampin’ Blends to get a more realistic look.  They are the Daffodil Delight combo and the So Saffron combo as well as the Shaded Spruce combo and Mint Macaron combo.  I think it worked out fine, what do you think?

The Garden Lane designer paper is going away by June 2nd, so I had to use up some more scraps for the background.  Make sure to check out the Last Chance(retiring products) Sale to stock up before everything goes away!

Here’s the product list for you.  Note: it’s missing the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle because I can’t show it off to you just yet.
