Simple to Super with the Tasteful Touches stamp set

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a trio of cards using the Tasteful Touches stamp set.  I wanted to show them in a group like this so that you can see how to make a really simple version for when you need a pretty card quickly, and then a couple other ways to step it up when you have a little more time or materials on your hands.

I really like this stamp set for the imagery and the sentiments.  The sentiments are especially nice in these days of social distancing. I really like the "Just Saying Hello" or the "you are so special" to send to friends who I have not been able to meet with in a while.

I made a video on this trio that you can view here:

This is the Simple version.  I used just Stamps, ink and Paper on this, no special tools needed.  The card base is Gray Granite with a background using the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. I used Pretty Peacock cardstock for the sentiment.  the flower is stamped in Memento Ink and colored with Stampin' Blends in Rococo Rose and Mango Melody.

On this second card I stepped it up a bit by adding a die cut piece behind the flower using the Stitched So Sweetly dies, a favorite of mine! I also cut the flower out and popped it up with Dimensionals, and added some Linen Thread behind.

For this third version I stepped it up even further by adding some gold foil leaves from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. I also embossed the sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder.

And one more! I added some gold Gilded Gems to this last version.  I can't decide if they are good or too much. 

Hopefully this shows that you can make simple cards when you need to and then step up your design as time and product allow.

I hope that you will check out this pretty paper and the stamp set.  You can click on the images below to go right to my shop.
