In Good Taste, Use Those Scraps

I love the natural look of the papers in the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  It was so popular that it was carried over from last year's annual catalog to this year's catalog.  Over time, I've purchased several packs of this paper and I must admit that I have lots of scraps.  Here are two easy peasy cards that use my scraps.  These are great masculine cards that could be used for any occasion by changing the sentiment.

In Good Taste DSP  Tailored Tag Punch  Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim  Linen Thread  Layering Circles dies  Luv 2 Create  Jo Anne Hewins

One card uses the scraps vertically and the other horizontally.  

The card base is Early Espresso that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Basic White 4 x 5 1/4.

Cut a piece of basic white that is 3 3/4 x 5.  Cover the entire sheet with an Adhesive Sheet.  Burnish with your Bone Folder to make sure it sticks well all over the surface.  Peel off the adhesive and add the In Good Taste strips.  Don't worry about the strips sticking out over the edges.  Just turn over the layer and trim the ends to fit.

The Early Espress label is stamped with the Tailored Tag Punch.

The sentiment is from the Welcoming Woods stamp set.  Cut out with the Layering Circles dies.  One card has a Linen Thread bow attached with a rolled up glue dot.  The second card has some of the Faux Suede Early Espresso Ribbon behind.  

Embellish with some of the Brushed Metallic Dots.

We are using the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper.  Cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Glue to the front of the card.

Use the Stitched Rectangle dies, the 2nd and 4th from the outside, to cut a frame from Basic Black card stock.  Use Foam Adhesive Strips on the back.

Cut a piece of Basic White 3  x 4 1/2.  Set up the trees from the Welcoming Woods stamp set on the Stamparatus.  Stamp in Memento Black.  You will need to shift the paper in order to cover all of it with trees.  Use Blending Brushes to add Mango Melody at the bottom and Misty Moonlight at the top.  Blend each together toward the center.  Add leaves in Memento Black.

Stamp the trees, this time in Early Espresso, just as in the first card.

Stamp the snowflakes in Versamark and emboss in white.  SU now has the embossing powders available in groups.  The Basics group has white, black, and clear.

Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper and the Ephemera Pack

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge # 687.  This week we have a sketch.

CCMC687

I have not used the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper very much.  I think I did have something earlier in the week.  I am using this beautiful paper and the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack.  With its punch outs, this pack helps to make making a card easy, quick, and gorgeous.  Here's my card.

CCMC #687 Blackberry Beauty DSP  Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack  Wink of Stella  Gold Foil  Banners Pick a Punch  Welcoming Woods  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The base of this card is Rich Razzleberry 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded in half at 4 1/4.

The Blackberry Beauty DSP is cut to 3 x 5 1/2.  Use Gold Foil to add some interest at the top and bottom of this patterned paper.  I cut two pieces 3/4 x 4 1/2.  Add one to the top and one to the bottom.  I used glue and my grid paper to make sure it was all centered.  Glue all of that to the base of the card.  I had some Gold Foil left so I used a 1/4 inch to put under my focal piece.  I used the Banners Pick a Punch to punch the end of this foil.

CCMC #687 Blackberry Beauty DSP  Close Up  Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack  Wink of Stella  Gold Foil  Banners Pick a Punch  Welcoming Woods  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The leaves and acorns are part of the Ephemera Pack.  Just punch it out.  I added this with dimensionals.  I also colored the entire image with Wink of Stella.  It's so pretty.  It really doesn't show in the picture.

The saying is from the Welcoming Woods stamp set.  Stamp on a scrap of Basic White and trim around with snips.  Add the sentiment with glue.

For the inside of the card the words are from Welcoming Woods.  The stem is punched from the Ephemera Pack.  Do you notice the single leaves?  I have a couple smudges on my paper somehow.  I inked up one of the leaves from the stamp that had a group of leaves.  I stamped them where I needed them.  No mistakes, just a chance to embellish, right?

So there you go.  This card was easy and fast.  It's also beautiful if I do say so myself.  Thanks for checking out the blog today.  I hope you'll try this sketch.  It would work with lots of different designer papers.
