Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Sneak Peek You Are The Best

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day!  And – we’re EXACTLY one week away from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog debut!  Whoo-hoo!!  I know you can hardly wait to get your mitts on some of the new goodies!  Don’t miss out on the great goodies that are Retiring and leaving us, though – they’ll be gone on 2 June!

And…DO be sure to scroll all the way down the post today to check out the AMAZEBALLS Joining Special that Stampin’ Up! just revealed!  It starts on the 3rd – and…includes a FREE BUNDLE!  Yes – ANY bundle in the new catalog for FREE.  On top of the already-great-Starter Kit deal-y-o!

My card today uses one of those new bundles – maybe it’s one you’ll pick for YOUR Starter Kit? 😉  It’s the Tasteful Touches stamp set and bundled Tastelful Labels Dies.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches.

I started with a panel of Sahara Sand card stock.  Down near the bottom, in Sahara Sand ink, I stamped the filigree image from Tasteful Touches.  Next to it, I stamped the leaves image – also in Sahara Sand.

I used the large circle die in the Tasteful Labels die set to cut the card front.  I left the die cut in place, and embossed the whole panel in the new Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

Using the leaves stamp again, I stamped all over the panel using stamped-off-once Sahara Sand ink.  The stamp hits just the tops of the embossing and barely colors it – giving a wonderful textural quality to the card front! 🙂

Then I matted the panel on a Petal Pink mat with Liquid Glue.  I popped the cut-out circle back in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another piece of Sahara Sand, I stamped the leaves again in Sahara Sand.  Then I cut the image out with another label die from Tasteful Labels.  I embossed the little label in the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front – lining up the two images – with Dimensionals and some Liquid Glue.

I stamped the beautiful Tasteful Touches flower on Very Vanilla in Sahara Sand ink and colored it with my Light Petal Pink and Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blends.  Then I fussy cut the flower – and edged it with my Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker.

Using a couple of Glue Dots – I wound a length of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim into a loose “bow”.

Then I popped the flower over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Tasteful Touches, I stamped in Petal Pink on Very Vanilla and then fussy cut each word.  I edged each little piece with the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I adhered each word with Liquid Glue.

I added some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Tasteful Touches sentiment in Petal Pink to a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the flower and leaves in Sahara Sand and colored the flower with the Light Petal Pink and Dark So Saffron Blends.  A single Champagne Rhinestone finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Sahara Sand card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more flowers and leaves on the front…

…and on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Love love love this Tasteful Touches bundle – the stamp set is stunning with it’s flower and textural elements – plus the gorgeous sentiments.  The bundled Tasteful Labels die set is…truly going to be a workhorse for you!


I hope you like – and have already added this one to your “must have” list for next week!

Or…maybe it IS the bundle you’ll pick for FREE with your Starter Kit!! 😉

Finn Fan Fix

You know – if I search thru my phone for all the pictures I’ve taken since he came to live with us, of my Finny-win sleeping, I bet I’d find about a gazillion.

But…I can’t help it very much.

He goes to great lengths to sleep so stinkin’ cutely.

Case in point.

Seriously – how could I NOT take this picture??

  1. I love everything about your post today…the subtleness of your colors, the layering, the design, the stamps, the sleeper!

  2. Charlotte Hutcheson

    Mary, you are on a roll…this card is so handsome. Kudos to you!

  3. So pretty! Love the colors and that flower is beautiful! Poor Finn, caught him when he quickly took his eyes off the squirrels…sometimes a puppy just has to take a cute nap. 😉

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – gotta rest your eyes to keep ’em sharp! Thanks, Amy! 🙂

  4. Faith Simpson

    Oh that is really a wonderful set/card!! If I wasn’t already ‘signed up’, that free bundle with the starter kit would be very hard to pass up! There are so many great bundles, it would be hard to choose.
    As for Finn……well! Everything about him is just cute. I do the same with my pup…..have pictures of her feet….her tongue….her tummy…..we just love them so much!! Every doggie should be love like that.

    • stampsnlingers

      Gotta have pictures, right!? THanks so much, Faith! 🙂

  5. Susan K

    Ooh, soft textures and layering. I love it. I’d like to see you do the stamping on the embossed background piece–that’s interesting and add so much to the card.
    I find I have lots of pics of the grandgirls when they are sleeping too…they, like Finnman, are sweet in repose and more importantly–still! 🤣

    • stampsnlingers

      Sleeping is such a great activity to photograph! Thanks, Susan – I’ll try to do a video with a card with that technique! 🙂

  6. Jeanne Knobbe

    That textured background is stunning – love it and how it sets off the flower. Thanks for joining us this week at CC&S!

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks, Jeanne – love that embossing folder! Appreciate you taking time to come by! 🙂

  7. Ah for the love of our critters! Such a sweet photo of your fur baby – that looks like what I get when my crew thinks outside looks great…..but…..inside is a bit better. They like the best of both worlds. I love your card, a gorgeous color combination. I was just working with this set myself trying to hit on a few ideas. I love this set. I hate fussy cutting, but I love what you did with the flower. Thanks so much for playing along with us at CC&S

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – we do almost as much for them as they do for us!! Thanks so much, Shannon! Appreciate you stopping by! 🙂
