Just Saying Hello with Tasteful Touches

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I love to design my cards but there are times when I kinda draw a blank, either nothing comes to mind or too much comes to mind and I feel a bit overwhelmed. The Stampin’ UP! catalogs show us all the wonderful products available but did you know it is also a book of ideas? In fact when I first came across Stampin’ UP! in 2006 it was called an ‘Idea Book’ (and I still have that catalog in my stash!)

All that being said – I found today’s card tucked into those pages, I changed it a tiny bit (of course) but it is very close 🙂

  • Base Card: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Balmy Blue Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4
  • Layer 1: 5 1/2 x 3 1/2 Balmy Blue Card
  • 3 1/2 x 1/2 Strip of Mango Melody Card
  • Ink Color: Misty Moonlight and Mango Melody

The Tasteful Touches Stamp set has 3 inspirational greetings as well as an eclectic collection of images to choose from. There is also the coordinating Tasteful Labels Dies, which I have used time and time again. You can buy them individually or buy them together as a bundle and save 10% (see below for a link to my on-line store)

Check out another card using this stamp set

and using the Tasteful Label Dies

I used a ‘stamping off’ technique on layer 1, stamping the bottom leafy image with full strength ink then stamped 2 more times without reinking, giving a lighter impression each time (check here for more on Stamping off technique)

The flower is stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White Card then ‘fussy cut’ with my Paper Snips before attaching to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Some Basic Jewel Pearls and delicate knot using the 1/4 Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding and I am done!
