In Good Taste

Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a good weekend...and to my US readers...a happy Memorial Day. Around here the weather went from cold and chilly spring to hot and steamy summer like someone flipped a switch. We have heat warnings up and the A/C on in the house! Gotta say, I'm not complaining...it has been far too cold and miserable for far too long for anyone to object to a little heat and sunshine.
Now before I get to this week's project, I want to remind you that my 2020/21 Annual Catalogue Designer Series Paper Share is now open for ordering.

Choose a share of just a few DSP packs or ALL of them at a fraction of the cost of full packs. Deadline to order in the first round is June 2nd. I will have shares ready to go by the 12th. Click the image above to learn more and/or place your order.

This week I am continuing with my showcase of new products from the upcoming 2020/21 Annual Catalogue with the utterly yummy In Good Taste Suite. Now, I think Stampin' Up! designed these products specifically for me...they are SO my style! With fabulous textural Designer Paper, fun wood embellishments, a stamp set with awesome images images and sentiments and my new favourite embossing folder, this suite will have pride of place in my studio for a long time to come. Check out this card I made...

I started with a piece of the gorgeous In Good Taste Designer Paper for my background panel. I stamped several images from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Smokey Slate ink to add texture and frame my focal point. Don't forget that DSP is paper and it is totally OK to stamp on it!

I used my new, go-to, Tasteful Labels dies to die-cut the Whisper White label and then stamped a sentiment in Smoky Slate and one of the awesome texture stamps in Blushing Bride.  To create my flowers, I first stamped them in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White card stock and then sponged in Blushing Bride and Rococo Rose ink to colour them...using a dauber is a super-quick way to add colour to stamped images. After sponging the flowers, I fussy-cut them out using my paper snips. I die-cut one of the ferns from the Forever Flourishing set from Champagne Foil to add some additional interest. To create the silver leaves, I simply pressed two of the In Good Taste Elements into a Versamark pad, dipped in silver embossing powder and heated. Voila...instant metallic accent! This is super-easy to do and allows you to create metallic embellishments to perfectly coordinate with your project. The final touches on this design were some rhinestones and a spatter of Frost White Shimmer paint...so sparkly!

On the inside of my Rococo Rose card I added a Whisper White panel on which I stamped more images and a sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Smoky Slate ink.

You can expect to see LOTS more of the products in this suite used on projects from me in the coming weeks and months. This is one of those suites that does double duty, standing on it's own and coordinating well with other products. I'll be showcasing all of the products in the suite, demonstrating this card and two others in today's Live @ Five video over on my Facebook business page. I hope you'll join me! If you can't make the live broadcast, be sure to catch the replay on my YouTube channel shortly afterwards.

Thanks for stopping by...have a great week!
