Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a good week ahead of you.  For me – this SHOULD be Catalog-packaging-and-mailing week!  In theory, if UPS does their thing – I’ll have all my boxes here by 9pm tomorrow.  So, with luck, I’ll have them to the PO on Wednesday afternoon – Thursday latest.  I can’t wait for you to get this beauty in your hands!!

Why?  Cuz…THIS sweet stamp set – the Tasteful Touches set – and the awesome In Good Taste and Ornate Garden Designer Series papers are a couple of the wunnermus things you’re going to find when you open it up – and be able to get for yourself on 3 June!  Take a look-see at what I’ve done with them today…

The sweet and simple layout is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with some of the sweet wooden paper from the In Good Taste pack – this paper has stone and tile and wood galore and it’s beautiful!  I adhered the panel to a Bumble Bee mat (one of the new 2020-2022 In Colors!) with Liquid Glue to create the card front.

Using a Stitched Rectangle Die, I cut two pieces from the daisy-strewn Ornate Garden Specialty DSP – and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I stamped the big and lovely sentiment from Tasteful Touches in Early Espresso on Whisper White.  Next to it, I stamped the leaves image – also in Tasteful Touches (yeah!!) – in Old Olive.

I cut the sentiment with the largest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly die set and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a bow with the Old Olive ribbon in the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack and ahdered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.

A single Gilded Gem (part of the Ornate Garden Suite) finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added some more of the Tasteful Touches leaves in Old Olive on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more leaves on the front…

…and more of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is a beautiful set – full of pretty sentiments, a lovely flower, leaves and some layering elements!

And – you’ve asked for wood.  And you got it!  In Good Taste will give you so many options!  I hope you like – and are adding all these products to your wish list!

Finn Fan Fix

Poor little tiny dog.

No one will buy him a bed that’s big enough.

He’s forced to sleep on the leather Otto-man (that’s how he says it – like two words.  Otto.  Man.)

Even though he’s really just a smidge too big for it anymore!

Yes – that IS his hiney sort of hanging off the back…
