Tasteful Touches for Global Design Project

tasteful touches for global design project 1

 I'm excited to be able to use the Tasteful Touches stamp set again. Sometimes it seems that we get so many new products to demo that some of my favourite sets take a back seat for a long time. I'm happy that this one will be carrying over in the new Annual Catalogue though, so I have more time to enjoy it.

I'm entering my card in the Global Design Project's current challenge #286:

I'm also entering it in the latest The Paper Player's challenge #535:

Here's my entry:

  • This is a square design, the base being 4 1/2" x 4 1/2", in Magenta Madness, one of the 2020 - 2022 In Colours.
  • It's topped with a 4" square in Soft Sea Foam, die cut with a circle in the middle, using the largest of the Layering Circle plain dies and embossed using the retiring Subtle 3D embossing folder.
  • On the Whisper White panel behind (3 3/4" x 3 3/4") I've stamped the leafy branch in Just Jade ink and the tiny squares texture image in Soft Sea Foam.
  • The flower was stamped on a scrap piece of Whisper White in Magenta Madness ink and fussy cut.
  • The feathers were embossed in White Stampin' Emboss Powder on vellum and fussy cut. They were mounted behind the flower with glue dots and the whole piece mounted on the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment, also from Tasteful Touches, was embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder on Just Jade cardstock, then cut into strips and mounted on the card front as shown.
  • The final touch was some black sequins left over from a Paper Pumpkin kit.
