In Good Taste with Pink Accents

Hello again.  The weather is just beautiful outside so I have taken a couple of days to get some pressure washing done on my deck.  Which means, I have a lot of staining coming in my near future.  I am hoping to get that all in before some rain moves into the area. 

Here is another project I made with the In Good Taste Product Suite.  I shared the other one yesterday... there is a link below or you can scroll down on my website to the next post.  

I really do like how this one came out with the Rococo Rose flowers and strip of DSP!  I said in my previous post, I just love the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper!  


Card Details:

  • Gray Granite CS base 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 scored & folded at 4-1/4
  • In Good Taste DSP cut 4 x 5-1/4
  • Stamp leaves on above piece in Mossy Meadow
  • In Good Taste DSP strip cut 2 x 4
  • Green leaves die cut in Pear Pizzazz (bottom piece) and Old Olive (top piece) from Poppy Moments dies

  • Stamp flowers in Gray Granite, color with Rococo Rose Blends and fussy cut

I just wanted to show you my inspiration, which came from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Don't forget the catalog has excellent project samples there for you to copy and create!  You can click on the image and it will pop-up larger.

In Good Taste with Gold Accents

Just saying hello... I love that font.  It is from the stamp set Tasteful Touches that is included in the In Good Taste product suite.  Between the flower and the Fabulous Designer Series Paper, this suite was another must have for me from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  OMG!  Can I say the DSP is awesome.   Check out my video below and I preview all 24 sheets.

The In Good Taste designer series paper makes for great backgrounds.  It is full of neutral colors to coordinate with just about any ink color.  But there are some distinctive colors too so be sure to check out my supply list below and click on the suite. 

For a fun twist, my video also shows you where I got those two gold strips from!

For this card, I just straight stamped the flower.  It has great detail and is beautiful.

SAVI Sunday - Edpisode 24

Episode 24 - Playful Alphabet Dies


These letter dies are a great size and you get so many in the pack!  58 to be exact.  I love the fact there are two dies for popular letters such and L, E, A, O, P, S, T and more!  With 58 dies in total, these are going to get a lot of use.

Matter of fact, someone retired last week from my full time job, and I use the Playful Alphabet Dies on a memory board.  I die cut "You Will Be Missed" in a jiffy with the duplicate letters.  And the sizing was perfect!  I hope you get a lot of use out them too. 


Happy Birthday Card Details:

  • Whisper White CS cut 3/4 x 2-1/2

  1. Die cut Flowers For Every Season with Playful Alphabet dies.  Use a ruler and washi tape for alignment and so dies do not move.  Make sure to save the centers of any letters such as the A and the P's in my example, so you can glue back down. 
  2. Adhere 1-1/4 x 4 DSP strip to back of larger DSP piece after words cut out. 
  3. Adhere to Magenta Madness card base
  4. Stamp Birthday word in Magenta Madness ink on Whisper White CS
  5. Cut tail or flag end on Whisper White stamped piece and adhere to card
