Whale Done Fun Fold Card With Rainbow Glimmer Paper

I just got the Whale Done suite!  Oh my! So much fun!  The Whale of a Time DSP is just beautiful!  I have used a lot of it in this fun fold card.  I've also punched the whales on this card from the shimmery Rainbow Glimmer paper.  Between the sparkly whales and the beautiful DSP, this card is an eye catcher!

Using Tasteful Touches Stamp Set to Create a Background

I want to show how you can use the same background created with Tasteful Touches stamp set for another card!  The background on this card is the same exact background I used on the card I featured yesterday.  The Tasteful Textures stamp set has great images for background stamping!  

Here is the card I made for today.  It's a baby card featuring the bunnies and sentiments from Wildly Happy stamp set, but the background is exactly the same as the card I made yesterday. (See my previous post).

Wildlyhappybabycard2

Love how it turned out.  I used the Stitched so Sweetly dies for the sentiments.

SIP (Stamps, Ink Paper) Card With Tasteful Touches Stamp Set

Another pretty card with Tasteful Touches stamp set, and this one is a SIP card!  SIP stands for stamps, ink, and paper.  A simple card made without using dies, embossing folders, etc.  I have to admit, it's hard for me to make a SIP card...I always want to jazz it up.  I did use a few rhinestones in the center of the flowers, but I'm giving myself a pass on that!

TastefulTouchessipcard2

And here is a close up:

Tastefultouchessipcardonly2

The flowers were stamped in Rococo Rose Ink on Blushing Bride card stock and then fussy cut with snips.  I used Rococo Rose ink to stamp the feathers and Basic Gray for the other design.  Sentiment is stamped in Memento Black ink.
