Tasteful Touches Wood Grain Card

Stamping on Designer Series Paper using Stampin' Up! In Good Taste Suite - card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Hello and welcome! Today I’d like to share with you my Tasteful Touches Wood Grain Card. For this card I have used the technique of stamping onto Designer Series Paper (DSP) which I think is under-used!

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Early Espresso cardstock. This is followed by a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock measuring 10 x 14.4 cm. Next is a layer of the Stampin’ Up! In Good Taste DSP, measuring 9.5 x 13.9 cm, which forms the main card front.

Onto the card front I have stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Stamp Set in Early Espresso ink. I have then wrapped a length of Scalloped Lace Trim around the card front (adhering at the back using Tear & Tape) before adhering to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

A piece of Early Espresso cardstock is cut out using the large label from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Labels Dies. I have trimmed the die cut to give a straight edge and adhered it to the card front, under the ribbon, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out using another of the labels from the Tasteful Labels Dies.

Three of the In Good Taste Elements have been adhered to the back of the sentiment piece using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. This piece if then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

What do you think to the Stamping on Designer Series Paper technique?

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my Tasteful Touches Wood Grain Card. Do you use the stamping on Designer Series Paper technique? If not, I hope I have convinced you to try something new.

I think this card is really effective but is actually pretty simple to make! The DSP does most of the work for you and the addition of the Lace Trim and wooden elements make it stand out from the crowd!
