One of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is you get to purchase catalogue items early on a pre-order basis. So while the clock is ticking down I thought I'd share a sneak peek at one of the new stamp sets I ordered from the new catalogue.
This red rubber cling stamp set, called Tasteful Touches, is part of a larger suite called In Good Taste. I purchased the stamp set and it's coordinating Tasteful Labels Dies as a Bundle.
As soon as I looked at this set I fell in love with the flower image and was excited to use it to create this Anniversary card for a friend who's silver anniversary is coming up.
She wanted something romantic and soft so I used a combination of Blushing Bride,Smokey Slate, Whisper White and Basic Black card stock to create this card. I also used some silver foil for a layer and a label and incorporated some silver embossing.
|For the card base, I began with an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Blushing Bride card base. I stamped the leaf design from Tasteful Touches with Versa Mark ink around the edges of the card front, sprinkled it with Silver Embossing Powder and heat set the design.|
|For this card I used the Stitched Rectangle dies to cut out the Smokey Slate and Silver Foil layers. I also cut out the 1" x 3 1/4" Basic Black layer for the sentiment from the bottom Basic Black layer.|
|I used the two large die cuts for my layers and the smaller banner die cut will be used for another project down the line. Both the banner and the label are from the Tasteful Label Dies.|
|Once the card was completed I stamped a Stampin' Up! Whisper White envelope with the floral image. Just couldn't get enough of that stamp image. It's simply beautiful and so detailed.|
Be sure to check out the In Good Taste Suite when the catalogue goes live on June 3rd. It's sure to be a favourite. Although I've only showcased a few of the images from the stamp set everyone of the 9 rubber stamps are awesome.
