Hello Paper crafting friends,

The In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP) is my favorite patterned paper from the Annual Catalog.  There are so many different textures and photo realistic papers in the package but the best part – it’s double-sided. An added bonus is that many of the patterned papers can be used for masculine themed cards. The hardest part is deciding which side to use.  I admit this particular pattern was my least favorite but I challenged myself to use it.  I love it.  I mean, who doesn’t like to see the texture of paint on a canvas and the Misty Moonlight color is simply beautiful.  I hope you like today’s card.

In Good Taste and Misty Moonlight card

Tasteful Touches Stamp set and Die Bundle

Notice that the Tasteful Touches dies don’t match up with the stamp images. There’s no die for the flower, feather nor the leafy stem. Another thing to notice is that the dies give an embossed edge to the die cut.  They’re elegant and can be used for all your artistic needs.

I used my Scan N Cut to cut out the floral image but you can easily fussy cut it out.  Once I stamped the flower I went over the entire flower with my Wink of Stella pen to add shimmer and sparkle and it also made the Misty Moonlight ink bleed to help it add additional color to the flower.  I love that soft watercolor effect.

To add more focus to the flower I added a 2 1/4″ circle of Night of Navy cardstock embossed with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. Notice that I also used the Night of Navy ink pad to directly stamp the leafy stem onto the patterned paper. Lots of different textures on this simple but pretty card.
