I have recently participated in two different card swaps featuring products from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue and now that everyone has their cards I can share my creation with you 🙂
As a demonstrator I get to place a ‘pre-order’ a month before a catalogue goes live. Fortunately one of the Suites available in the pre-order was the ‘In Good Taste’ suite on page 122 – 124. This suite is full of wonderful textures from the stamps, paper, embossing folder and embellishments. Combined or on their own they look great. The papers in this suite are all neutral colours which are great for masculine cards and with a pop of colour can make a great feminine project.
For my card I’ve used the stamp and dies (which come as a bundle so you can save 10%) and the embossing folder. As I wasn’t using the papers I decided to go with feminine colours – Purple Posy, Blackberry Bliss and Soft Sea Foam. The Blackberry Bliss card stock has been dry embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.
I stamped the flower in Blackberry Bliss and then ‘fussy’ cut it out. Before I adhered it I thought I’d add a bit of sparkle with the Wink of Stella. Well – as I was adding the Wink of Stella it pulled some of the colour from the stamp onto the petals giving the ‘pink’ hue so each flower is unique 🙂
I remembered to take a photo of the inside – I kept it simple as I ended up making 35 of these cards 🙂 I think this suite will be getting a lot of use.
Well that’s all from me for now. Until next time …
