Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring Suites in the Annual and the Holiday Catalogues. I am excited to share another project with you today. Fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe are participating, so we have lots of fun projects to share with you. I hope you get loads of creative inspiration from them. You may have started here, or arrived from the talented Maureen Rauchfuss’s blog. Wasn’t her project amazing? Either way, you’re in the right place!
I chose to create a project using the In Good Taste Suite. The suite consists of the Tasteful Touches stamp set, the Tasteful Labels dies set (available as the Tasteful Touches bundle, at a 10% discount), the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper, the Tasteful Texture 3D embossing folder and the In Good Taste Elements.
As you would guess from the names, it is a very tasteful suite. Actually, it is delicate enough to allow feminine projects but versatile enough to suite the most rugged gent. The DSP is full of texture, with very earthy tones. The stamp set contains some lovely greetings in a beautiful script, two of which are specifically designed to fit into two of the ten gorgeous label dies, a luscious flower (easily fussy cut), a delicate sprig, a feather, and a number of texture stamps. The elements are made of wood and include leaves, sprigs and small textural shapes.
When playing with the elements that went into this card, I was struggling to use DSP AND the gorgeous embossing folder. Then I realised that I could accomplish this by using the “DSP Quadrangle Cut”. Not sure about this name. Anyway, I quite liked the layout, but couldn’t decide which label and greeting to use so I consulted the brains trust (Hi Vicki and Antoinette!). They had differing opinions, so I used both. Which do you like the best?
