In Good Taste Card

Hello and welcome to the 3rd instalment of my Stampin’ Up! In Good Taste Suite Showcase. If you have missed the previous two blog posts you can find them here… Part 1 and Part 2. Today I would like to share with you my In Good Taste Card which uses most of the products in the Suite.

Stampin' Up! In Good Taste / Tasteful Touches Card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Grey Granite cardstock. This is followed by a 10 x 14.4 cm layer of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP) which has been embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. The folder is fabulous – it gives a realistic textile feel to DSP or cardstock and is perfect matched with this gorgeous DSP.

The feathers are stamped in Early Espresso ink onto Grey Granite cardstock and fussy-cut with Paper Snips. The large label is cut out of Early Espresso cardstock using the Tasteful Labels Dies.

The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso ink onto Grey Granite cardstock and cut out using another of the Tasteful Labels Dies. The small banner from this die set is also used to cut out a piece of Seaside Spray cardstock which is then snipped into two.

All of these elements are layered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by lengths of Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon and Grey Granite Shimmer Ribbon which are stapled to the card front.

What do you think to my In Good Taste Card?

I really like the little hints of Seaside Spray against the Grey Granite and Early Espresso on this card. I hope you like my In Good Taste Card too and are enjoying my In Good Taste Suite Showcase. Join me next week for the next instalment.

Dog Builder Punch Card

Hello and welcome! I admit I was disappointed when the Stampin’ Up! Happy Tails Stamp Set retired BUT the good news was that new got to keep the Dog Builder Punch! I come from a family of dog lovers and both my Mum and I volunteer at our local rescue centres. So, this year, Father’s Day just had to involve a Dog Builder Punch Card!

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Crumb Cake cardstock. This is followed by a layer of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP) measuring 10 x 14.4 cm. The main card front is a layer of Crumb Cake cardstock measuring 9.5 x 13.9 cm.

The Dog Builder Punch is used to cut apertures in the card front – one from the front and one from the back such that the dogs are facing one another.

The ‘Father’s Day’ sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Stamp Set and is stamped in Early Espresso ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock. It is then cut out using the banner from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Labels Dies.

The ‘Happy’ sentiment is from the same stamp set and is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto a small piece of the DSP. This is also cut out using the banner from the Tasteful Labels Dies. The two banners are adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Tasteful Touches in Pink!

Hello and welcome to Part 2 of my Stampin’ Up! In Good Taste Suite Showcase. If you missed Part 1, you can find it here. This week I’d like to show you that the Tasteful Touches Bundle also looks pretty in pink!

Petal Pink is one of the Suite colours and combining it with Smoky Slate gives a lovely elegant look to your projects.

If you would like to watch me create the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

The (standard A6) card base is created from Smoky Slate cardstock. This is followed by a layer of Petal Pink cardstock measuring 10 x 14.4 cm. The main card front is a layer of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP) measuring 9.5 x 13.9 cm.

Two pieces of DSP are cut out using the Tasteful Labels Dies. The larger piece (pink textile image) is embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. These are layered together and adhered to the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Two of the leaf In Good Taste Elements are adhered to the back of the flower and the flower adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Tasteful Touches Graffiti Card

Hello and welcome to Part 1 of my June Suite Showcase! My favourite Suite from the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue is the In Good Taste Suite (which can be found on Page 122 of the catalogue) so it just had to be the first to feature! Today I want to share with you my Tasteful Touches Graffiti Card!

If you would prefer to watch me create the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post to see the video tutorial.

This Suite features:

  • Tasteful Touches Stamp Set,
  • Tasteful Labels Dies,
  • In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP),
  • Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder
  • In Good Taste Elements

In today’s card I’m using it all!

Stampin' Up! Tasteful Touches Graffiti Card using the In Good Taste Bundle by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Early Espresso cardstock and this is followed by a layer of the DSP measuring 10 x 14.4 cm. Onto the DSP I have stamped the ‘You Are The Best’ sentiment from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set numerous times in Early Espresso ink. This is why I call it a ‘graffiti’ card. This layer is adhered to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is also stamped onto a piece of Vellum cardstock in Early Espresso ink. I heat set this using a Heat Tool to ensure it didn’t smudge. The sentiment is cut out using one of the Tasteful Labels Dies.

One of the larger label dies is used to cut out a piece of DSP which I have then embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. The Vellum is stapled to this die-cut piece of DSP. The banner die is used to cut a piece of Early Espresso cardstock and this is adhered to the back of the sentiment piece using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The whole piece is then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimnesionals.

The final touch is provided by a few of the In Good Taste Elements. I love wooden elements!

The envelope flap is also decorated using a piece of the DSP. I find the easiest way to do this is to cut a piece of DSP to the approximate size of the flap; then apply Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the flap; adhere the DSP to the flap and finally trim off the excess using Paper Snips.

What do you think?

I hope you have enjoyed this introduction to the Stampin’ Up! In Good Taste Suite and my Tasteful Touches Graffiti Card. I hope you will join me for Part 2 of my In Good Taste Suite Showcase next week.
