Stampin' Up! Tasteful Background

I've been meaning to make this card for a while.  I was so excited to see how the Tasteful Background Dies looked on a card.  The Tasteful Background Dies were so easy to use!   I paired it with the Daisy Lane Stamp set and the medium Daisy Punch.  You can find more samples using the Tasteful Background Dies on page 135 in the Stampin' Up! annual catalog

Greeting card using Daisy Lane and Tasteful Background Dies

The basecard for this card is Rococo Rose.  The I added a layer of Blushing Bride cardstock.  Then the Whisper White layer was die cut using one of the Tasteful Background Dies.

Greeting card with three Daisies

I stamped six of the medium daisies from Daisy Lane Stamp set in Rococo Rose.  After punching them out with the Medium Daisy Punch, I layered two of the punched daisies together, offsetting the petals to make the daisy look fuller.  I also punched three sets of leaves from the Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock using the Leaf Punch. I layered the leaves and Daisies together and mounted them on Dimensionals before adding them to the card.  The centers of the Daisies are Clear Faceted Gems.

For the sentiments, I die cut Whisper White shapes that fit my sentiments using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  The sentiments are both from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set, and they are stamped in Rococo Rose ink.  I added a coordinating 1/2" Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon for additional interest.

Reminder - Use Your Bonus Coupons During August:   Remember those coupon codes Stampin' Up! emailed you for each $50 you spent in July?  You can now begin using them when you order during August.  Be sure to redeem your coupon codes as they expire at the end of August. After selecting the items for your order, there is a button to manage your coupons.  Click this button and add your coupon code.  I found it was easier to find the email from Stampin' Up! and copied-pasted the codes from the email into the Stampin' Up! form on my order page.  However you can also enter the codes manually.    

What's going on with the Purple Posy Ink?  As you probably know, Stampin' Up! pulled the Purple Posy Ink when it was discovered that it did not meet their quality standards.  They tested three batches from the manufacturer and just this week the third batch passed their quality tests.  Now we're waiting to hear when Stampin' Up! expects to receive its order from the manufacturer and when Purple Posy Ink will be back in stock.  Stay tuned for upcoming updates.

New-Style Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder (Item 152320) is now available.  See it on page 199 of the annual catalog.   If you need help placing your order, contact me.
